Plant-based Cleaning – Why Should You Do it?
A silver lining from the year 2020 was the rise in preserving our planet!
Recently there has been an increase in sustainable ways of living and shoppers are rightfully asking retailers for product transparency. The UK has seen a dramatic rise in ethical spending as sustainable purchases have risen almost fourfold over the last 20 years. Additionally, 8 in 10 adults are doing “everything they can” to make their household more environmentally friendly. This means brands which are cruelty-free, low waste and have plant-based formulas, are becoming very popular.
The internet, wider social surroundings and personal influences, have driven people to learn more about the importance of sustainable shopping. Therefore, going back to basics, many Brits are being more environmentally responsible and reducing their environmental impact.
What does plant-based actually mean and why should I care?
Most of us have heard of the term ‘plant-based’ but do we 100% understand what this means?
Plant-based products do not use animals or by-products at any stage of production. As a result, this means they are made from plants.
Unfortunately, plant-based cleaning products can get misunderstood for being less effective, stopping people from buying the product. Therefore, it is important that we educate each other and breakdown any misconceptions we may have around plant-based household products.
4 benefits of our 100% plant-based cleaning products
1. Our products are safer around children and pets
You will never need to worry about the risks of toxic and harmful ingredients on yourself, your pets or your children. This is because we use natural ingredients in our cleaning products, which eliminate all harm.
For example, our Clean Living Odour and Spot Remover refill sachets, are free of harmful chemicals such as Chlorine and Phosphate.
2. Cleaner air
Our man-made fragrances are 100% plant-based. As a result, the air in your home will be non-toxic, non-irritating and gentle after a clean whilst smelling great. Additionally, our organic ingredients eliminate the risk of absorbing or breathing in toxic chemicals.
3. Better performance than harmful cleaning products
Harness the power of nature to get a far more superior clean than traditional cleaning products. Healthy bacteria used in our products creates a deeper and longer lasting clean through completely breaking down dirt or grime.
