Only 9% of Plastic Gets Recycled—Make Your Routine Greener With Glass Cleaning Supplies
As someone who cleans to relieve stress, I find so much pleasure in using pretty glass cleaning supplies. Not only are they better to look at than plastic alternatives, but they’re also way more sustainable. As of 2015, only 9 percent of all the plastic that has been produced around the world has actually been recycled. The best way to cut down on plastic waste is to avoid buying new plastic as much as possible.
To make things simple, brands like Supernatural, Saint Olio, and Grove Collaborative have glass spray bottles for your own cleaning concoctions or, in some cases, a matching concentrate. If you’re ready to make your cleaning routine plastic-free, shop these reusable glass bottles for cleaning products below.
Cleaning products with glass bottles for a green routine
1. Grove Collaborative Cleaning Concentrate Essentials 3-Pack, $55
Released in October, this pack features three spray bottles and concentrates (also in glass bottles) for its all-purpose, tub and tile, and glass cleaners. I particularly love the silicone sleeve on the bottle to prevent slips. When you’re ready for a refill, pick up a pack of the concentrates for $10. And if you’re need of a floor cleaner for finished hardwood, tile, and laminate, try the separate Floor Cleaner Kit ($17).

2. Branch Basics Premium Glass Bottle Kit, $40
If you’re looking to really simplify your routine, consider the Branch Basics kit. Featuring three glass bottles to house bathroom, all-purpose, and glass cleaner, each product uses the same concentrate, just a different amount. Unfortunately, the concentrate ($49) is sold separately and comes in a plastic bottle, but contains a lot of concentrate, meaning you’ll be able to refill each of your bottles several times before needing more.

3. Supernatural Cleaning Starter Set, $75
This kit contains four adorable, glass bottles and four concentrates formulated for counters, glass, tile, and wood. One glass bottle of concentrate mixes with water to fill one bottle of cleaner. To restock, a set of refills costs $40, or you can buy them individually for $10. The wood and countertop concentrates are also available in big bottles for $60 each. Separately, Supernatural also sells a Stainless Steel Cleaning Set ($25).

4. Saint Olio The Originals Trio, $75
Packaged in beautiful amber bottles, these aromatic all-purpose cleansers smell as good as they look. Shop the individual sprays—citron, neroli, and sitka—for $20 each, and then buy full-sized concentrates (available in 8 ounces or 16 ounces) for $50. I prefer the set of all three with concentrates that allow for two refills for $75.
