What Are Your Dust Bunnies Doing in Your Vacuum Bag?

Talking about dust bunnies is like a taboo.

You don’t want to think about them, speak about them or acknowledge their presence. However if you haven’t change your vacuum bag in a while, the dust bunnies you’ve collected have been multiplying and growing. Although they may look like harmless hair and dust, studies show that bacteria, mold, and other organism are lurking.

Planting a Tree for Every 1,000 Vacuum Filters Sold

Last year, we promised Crucial Vacuum dot commers that every time you purchase our brand filter for your vacuum, it went towards planting a tree.

We’re still guided by this simple mission this year as we continue our efforts: for every 1,000 Crucial Vacuum branded filters purchased, we’ll be planting a tree at another local farm. It’s a big job and we could not have done it without the famers as well as our customers. It’s our first full year of working hand-in-hand with Farmers to directly support their efforts and help turn their dreams into a beautiful reality.
