Why Choose Natural & Non-Toxic?

Sun & Earth for your Family

for your family

Most major household cleaning brands use abrasive chemical compounds in their products to remove dirt and residue, mask odors, and remove stains. Many of these compounds are known to be toxic to humans and animals, and can leave behind dangerous odors and residues. Sun & Earth’s products are created with living things in mind. We use essential oils and plant-derived cleaning agents that are effective at cleaning but harmless to people and pets. We design all of our products with your loved ones’ health in mind.

Guide to Green Terminology

Biodegradable

Able to be consumed and/or broken down by living organisms.

Carbon Footprint

The total amount of carbon dioxide produced from human activities. Climate change is attributed mostly to increased levels of carbon dioxide.

Carbon Offset

A reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases to compensate for emissions made elsewhere.

Climate Change

Changes in long-term weather patterns caused by increased greenhouse gasses in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Earth Day

An annual global celebration of nature and protecting the environment. Earth Day is on April 22 of each year.

Eco Friendly

A term used to describe a product or service that does not negatively impact the environment.

Energy Consumption

The amount of energy used. This is typically used to measure appliances and electronics to determine how energy efficient they are.

Energy Star

An international standard used to identify the most energy efficient appliances, electronics, and products. Energy Star-rated washing machines and dishwashers also use less water and detergent.

Fossil Fuels

Fuels such as oil, gas, or coal, that are extracted from the Earth and burned for energy. These fuels were created over millions of years from plant and animal life buried deep in the Earth’s surface. Made of concentrated carbon, they release greenhouse gasses into the air when burned, contributing to climate change.

Global Warming

A gradual increase in the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere generally attributed to increased levels of greenhouse gases.

Go Green

To live a “green” lifestyle by making decisions that nurture and protect the Earth so that the people, plants and animals of tomorrow can live happy, healthy lives.

Green Energy
Electricity that has been produced using clean energy sources that do not require non-renewable resources or create greenhouse gas emissions. Examples: Wind, solar, and hydro-power.

Greenhouse Gases
Gases found in the atmosphere that keep heat from leaving Earth. Fossil fuel emissions, among other factors, have caused an increase in greenhouse gases, resulting in climate change.

Hazardous Materials
Solid or liquid materials known to cause risk or harm to living organisms.

Hydropower (Hydroelectric Power)
Electricity that is created using the gravitational force of falling or flowing water.

Precycle; Precycling
Consciousness about what you buy and use, and choosing products based on waste reduction.

Reduce
Using less in general; limiting consumption of products that will generate waste or harm the environment.

Re-use/Repurpose
Using an item again to reduce waste.

Recycle
Disposing of an item in a way that ensures it will be used to create another product.

Renewable Resources
Natural resources that continually regenerate, such as wind, sunlight, and water. Non-renewable resources, like fossil fuels, exist in limited amounts and will eventually run out.

Social Responsibility
An ethical framework which suggests that an entity, be it a business or an individual, has an obligation to act for the benefit of society at large.

Solar Energy
Electricity that is created by harnessing the energy of the sun’s rays.

Sustainability
Practices and solutions that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Wind Energy
Electricity that is created using a wind turbine.
