Editorial Guidelines

Natural Replacements is committed to helping you get the information, resources, and eco-friendly products to help you on your journey for sustainability.

We take your trust seriously and if we didn’t believe in what we were writing, we wouldn’t publish it.


There is a lot of misinformation and intimidating hurdles around sustainability research. We understand that, which is part of the reason why Natural Replacements exists.


We aim to provide content that is:

  • Clearly written: We write straightforward information that is easy to understand.
  • Consistent: Throughout the website, readers will not find conflicting information or opinions.
  • Accurate: We routinely review articles for outdated or incorrect information and revise them accordingly.
  • Transparent: We know that there is no such thing as "perfect" when it comes to products or services in terms of environmental impact. We'd rather be completely honest so you can make an informed decision.
  • Helpful: We don't want to publish content that doesn't provide value to our readers. We think of questions we've had ourselves, that were asked of us, or that we've researched to find as popular topics.


If you find something we’ve missed, please let us know and we will fix the errors.


Content Influence

Even small steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle can make a tremendous impact. We never want to push anyone outside of their comfort zone or make someone feel obligated to make a decision or purchase.


Our content is meant to generally guide users to better understand the various topics we discuss to be able to make more informed decisions on their own.
