Chemical drain cleaners are devastating to the environment. After clearing a clogged drain, all those chemicals get flushed downstream, polluting the rivers and oceans with toxic substances that are deadly to aquatic life. Isn't there a better way to clean clogged drains?

Ultra-eco-friendly company Terracycle has a solution: Their DRAIN product is a natural drain maintainer and cleaner that relies solely on the power of microbes, not chemicals, to get the job done. They contain no potassium hydroxide or sodium hypochlorite -- two chemicals you might normally find in a drain cleaning product.

The New Jersey-based Terracycle company sells more than just drain cleaner; they offer a whole line of natural, non-chemical cleaning products that include a bathroom cleaner, a window cleaner, a natural degreaser and an all-purpose cleaner. They're all free of chemical fragrances and use nothing but completely natural ingredients that are safe to use around children and pets. All the ingredients are naturally biodegradable, too.

These are turned into fashionable bags that you can view at

Due to its natural ingredients and eco-friendly company philosophy, the Terracycle company earns my Editor's Choice Award for Best Green Home Products. Their products are a significant upgrade from conventional chemical cleaners, and they allow you to clean your home while protecting the life of creatures downstream.

Terracycle Drain Cleaner

Pros: No harsh chemicals. All ingredients are biodegradable. Safe for aquatic creatures living downstream.

Cons: Takes longer to work than traditional drain cleaners, but it still works nonetheless.
