How To Clean And Reduce Your Plastic Waste
July 21, 2020

Attitudes towards recycling are changing, particularly when it comes to plastic. And it’s no wonder, as if something isn't recycled, it goes to landfill, or even worse, to the sea. Wherever it ends up, it’ll take between 10 and 1000 years to biodegrade and that presents a huge plastic pollution problem. 

 

Greener products

 

Change needs to come from companies as much as individuals and that’s why we are dedicated to providing as many greener products to our customers as we can. It’s the reason we are so proud of our DuraOcean chair, made using ocean plastic waste and recommend Delphis All Purpose Cleaner to keep it clean. There are plenty of ways you can reduce your use of single-use plastic for Plastic Free July and beyond, even if you aren’t in the market for new garden furniture. Our environmentally conscious cleaning products are a good sweet-smelling place to start.

 

Delphis

 

Delphis has been around for over a decade in the professional arena and its reputation as a range that is tough on grime without sacrificing on its eco and sustainability credentials is second to none.

 

Not only are Delphis bottles made from recycled milk bottles that have been given another life, they are also 100% UK sourced, which means their carbon footprint is reduced in comparison to plastics sourced from overseas.

 

Up for doing even more to help in the battle against plastic pollution? Delphis have teamed up with leading recycling company, First Mile, so you can do just that. They are trying to make up the worldwide shortfall caused by Covid-19 of bottle closures (trigger sprays, hand soap pumps and flip-top caps) to parts of the world that need sanitisers and antibacterial hand soap the most. Simply give your bottle closure a rinse and organise a RecycleBox courier collection to go that one green step further.

 

Try the Delphis cleaning range for yourself, as washing up liquid, multi-purpose cleaner, hand soap, antibacterial kitchen sanitiser and more.

 

Method

 

If you love colourful, fun, fragranced cleaning products then Method is for you. Both their ingredients and fragrances are comprehensively reviewed by a leading research firm to make sure they are safe for people and the environment, so take your pick from Lavender to Rhubarb. 

 

Method bottles are made from older bottles to cut their footprint and encourage recycling. A plastic pioneer that was the world’s first bottles made with a mix of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic.

 

Comes in a wide range of products from hard floor and glass cleaners to laundry liquid detergent and multi-surface cleaners.

 

Ecover

 

The folks at Ecover are on a mission to make cleaning even cleaner and they achieving this with environmentally friendly products that are also powerful cleaners.

 

Ecover are proud of their new utter rubbish Washing Up Liquid bottle made from 100% post-consumer recycled, 100% recyclable plastic. Their aim is for them all to be made like this by 2020.

 

The company isn't just trying to make a difference with their product, they’re also making waves with their environmental initiatives, like trying to get people to fall back in love with clothes they already own instead of contributing to fashion waste. A cause that has rapper Professor Green behind it; check out what he had to say about it atop a washing machine.
