100% eco-friendly cleaning products for your home & laundry

Low impact for better cleaning: People. Planet. Profit. Meliora!

Meliora is a brand of eco-friendly cleaning products for your home and laundry that’s worked hard to meet the big three: it works, it’s people friendly and does not cause any harm to the planet. Most importantly, they list their ingredients on the label. Packaging? Also 100% plastic-free. 

Did you know that most cleaning products use dyes, optical brighteners, preservatives, or synthetic fragrances? Meliora doesn’t. Because truth is that home cleaning and laundry products don’t have to, and neither have to use plastic for their packaging. Instead, they label their ingredients (apparently, a very random thing to do in the industry!). 

Learn all you need to know about this eco-friendly cleaning brand on the interview between Madeleine Wisecup and Kate Jakubas and Mike Meyer, Co-Founders of Meliora Cleaning Products. This company based out of Chicago, Illinois, creates all-natural laundry and home cleaning products that are both good for the planet & good for people. So far the brand has earned certifications such as BCorp, Leap Bunny and supports One Percent For The Planet.

“I wasn’t one of those kids that had a lemonade stand, you know, those entrepreneurial kids that love business!? … I had a rock collection. Like, I was one of those super nerdy science kids and it wasn’t until later, just a couple of years ago, that I realized business could be a part of problem-solving.” – Kate Jakubas⁣

A few years ago, I became obsessed with learning about sustainable and ethical practices and products, waste reduction, natural foods, and overall wellness. I read articles and books about the toxic products we put on our skins and into our bodies; explored numerous facets, challenges, and success stories of the slow fashion/sustainable fashion movement; and started reading the ingredient labels on everything I bought (you’d be surprised how much crap you can’t even pronounce). I was on a personal mission to improve my overall wellness and to become a wiser, more conscientious consumer. The more research I did – and continue to do – the more I realized how many amazing people and businesses were out there making a difference, breaking the status quo, and positively impacting the lives of people all over the world while equally making our planet just a little bit happier. These were people invested in using their businesses as, as Richard Branson would say, a force for good, people who were in the business of positive change. I was hooked. Today, I am on a quest to connect with social- and environmental-impact entrepreneurs; to uncover ethical and sustainable practices and brands, and to share the remarkable stories of good-doers and the impacts they’re making all over the world.
