Humble Home Eco Products

Reducing the amount of plastic we use and the amount of plastic waste we produce has never been so important. But it’s hard. Look in your bathroom or your kitchen cupboards and the majority of cleaning products we all use come in single use plastic bottles. And a lot of the liquids contained within them are not environmentally friendly either.

But I’ve found an alternative: environmentally friendly cleaning products that come in solid powder form (a bit like dishwasher tabs).

They come with an empty, recycled plastic bottle.

Put one tab in the bottle, add water, shake it and your cleaning product is ready to use.

And when it runs out, you simply put another tab of cleaning product in the same bottle, fill it with water, shake it and away you go.

The plastic bottle can be re-used as many times as you like and the products are certified by the Vegan Society, Leaping Bunny and has the Ecolabel.

There’s a range of four products – one multi surface and de-greaser (good for kitchens), a bathroom cleaner, a hard floor cleaner and one that will do stainless steel and glass. And because the products come in tab form, they are much lighter to transport than lots of heavy liquid, so they don’t take as much fossil fuel to deliver.

It’s small step, but I hope it might make a big difference. Don’t landfill. Refill.
