Dealing with a desk so cluttered you can’t actually see the desk anymore? Or kitchen cabinets so stuffed finding spices is a never-ending game of hide-and-go-seek? We know the feeling - and it’s not a good one!
But before buying a slew of new organizing essentials, don’t forget the most eco-friendly thing you can do is: buy less and buy mindfully. When you approach organizing from this mentality you’ll be more likely to invest in organizing tools that are treasured for years to come… and not tossed in landfills after a month or two.
When it comes to organization, there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to go through your belongings. Sure, some people love to dedicate an entire weekend to cleaning their house with a curated “cleaning playlist” on repeat. Others prefer to take things slow, drawer by drawer. The point is: if it works for you, that’s what matters.
However, there are some helpful organizing ideas to consider when tidying your home with the planet in mind.
When you have products that serve more than one purpose, you’ll maximize your space and budget while saving waste that comes from multiple products and packaging. Neoletex will save you space in your kitchen and the Earth from unnecessary waste that often goes straight to landfills.
While it’s tempting to purchase cheap, flimsy products, you’ll save yourself and the Earth from waste by purchasing durable products that are made to last.

Here’s a helpful “get rid of things” guide to properly dispose of everything from Halloween costumes to sports equipment.
Whether you’re shopping for a student going to college or in the process of organizing your own home office, there is no shortage of helpful tools to keep you and everyone you know tidy.
Even in the current digital age, piles of papers somehow continue to accumulate anyways. File folders offer huge opportunities for staying organized without a big splurge. Remember to use recycled or we're just adding waste.
Putting your chargers and folders in a “catch-all” storage basket or box is an easy way to blend storage with home décor. They’re handy and they look nice, a win-win.

You don’t need a huge home to feel like you have space to breathe and move with ease. If you’re working with a smaller space, we recommend dividing rooms in a way that makes sense for your personality. For example, if you have a lot of books, embrace a bookshelf as a room divider. Other ways to easily add space include a well-placed rug, curtains, or indoor plants.
Glass jars make for handy organizers. An old shower caddy is a practical place to store cleaning supplies. Don’t shy away from using something for a new use!
