Those of you that have been reading this blog for a while will know how keen I am to be green and do my little bit for the environment. I try to be as responsible as possible when it comes to waste and recycling and I like to support companies with an aligned view.
Several years ago I started using Ecover's products because I wanted to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals in my cleaning products. Now I regularly buy their multi-surface cleaner and washing up liquid. I'm also so devoted to their laundry liquid that I can't stand the chemically smell of everything else. All do their job really well, smell nice and are kind to the environment. Where possible I try to put these in as big a container as possible so that I can minimise on plastic waste.
Ecover have recently made a pledge to try to make things even kinder to the environment by changing how they make their plastic bottles. As well as using sea plastic and recycled plastic they have also introduced plant-astic, a green plastic made from sugarcane which is 100% renewable, reusable and recyclable.
It's fantastic to hear about new innovations like this and we need to do things like this to protect our planet and drastically reduce the amount going into landfill. When they're not busy beavering away in a science lab researching new materials the people at Ecover have also come up with this handy infographic to explain what they're doing. I just hope other companies learn from them.
Cleaning the seas, one bottle at a time. Visit The-Splash for more information and to read our pledge.
Discalimer: I wrote this post in exchange for some Ecover products, however I'm such a fan of the brand that I would have happily written it for free!
