Being Green: Efforts to Reduce Waste in Manufacturing and Packaging

It’s not easy being green, but it’s worth it. 

 
They are buzzwords, but Eco-friendly and green do mean the very real effort to take more care of the environment in the things we do. At Household Essentials, we are embracing this effort in our processes, packaging, and products. Our goal is to provide you quality goods that solve your home's needs in a way that doesn’t harm the environment. 

Greener Processes

Nanomax Stain and Scorch Coating

Nanomax technology uses a process that integrates stain and scorch resistance into the fabric of ironing boards covers. This creates a more durable, longer-lasting surface that has to be replaced less frequently, which creates less waste. The coating itself is 85% water-based and uses 50% fewer chemicals than comparable processing.  Reducing chemicals is one way we strive to make our products safer, stronger and better for you and the environment.

 

Greener Packaging

Pocket Packaging and Belly Band (2010 Greener Packaging and 2011 DuPont Award-Winner)

We succeeded wonderfully, creating a more environmentally-conscious packaging for our ironing board cover and pads. Our cover and pads’ handy pocket double as packaging! With a single paper-based belly-band to finish it off, it’s award-winning packaging and design that reduces excess plastic and packaging. 
 

A Greener You

Indoor and Outdoor Dryers

Air drying clothes and linens saves major energy and major money since the electric clothes dryer is the second largest energy-consumer in most homes—second only to the refrigerator. So whether you set up clothesline outdoors or indoors, use umbrella or fold-away styles, you can feel good about caring for your clothes and reducing your carbon footprint.
