What Bio has to say…
“CLEANING PRODUCTS THAT DON’T COST THE EARTH IN ANY SENSE
We make all our own products right here in the UK and we have completely traceability on all the ingredients we use so we know they are ethically and sustainably sourced.
Our uncompromising standards have been recognised by a number of awards over the years and we are proud to be endorsed by Cruelty Free International, The Vegan Society, and Allergy UK.
We’re also the only green cleaning company whose products meet the standards for commercial food preparation otherwise known as BSEN1276.
It doesn’t sound very exciting when you put it like that but it means that our products get to work in some pretty cool kitchens.
We really care about what goes into our products and recently, we made changes to the packaging they go into too.
We’ve always used minimal, recyclable packaging but we’ve now gone further and introduced containers made from 100 per cent recycled material across our range.
The recycled material is made from used plastic bottles that might otherwise have gone to landfill.
You might notice that this means our packaging has a slightly non-uniform shade that changes depending on the make-up of different plastics that go into the mix – a quirk that we love.
We also offer refill stations to keep waste to a minimum but if you’re not able to reuse our containers, the recycled packaging can once again be recycled.
We no longer want to witness the devastating sight of plastics clogging up our oceans and affecting our wildlife.
Neither will we stand by while harsh cleaning chemicals continue to pollute our rivers and seas and affect our natural environment.
The difference we can make starts at home.”
What Ecozone has to say…
“Ecozone is a family-owned business. Created by a family for families.
20 years ago, we set out to create cleaning products that work, with no nasty hidden ingredients and no compromises while working to ensure everyone could have access to them.
For us, we went back to basics which meant we needed to create products with plant-based and natural ingredients. Plants are the inspiration behind all of our formulas. It’s our belief that no-one should have to think too hard about how to lead a sustainable life, we feel it should just be. To help make it second nature, we went back to nature.”
Who Gives A Crap
What Who Gives A Crap has to say…
Sure, we love puppies and sunny days and walks on the beach, but our real love is toilet paper. Why, you might ask?
First of all, it’s funny. Lots of room for toilet jokes, which we love.
But really, we love toilet paper because for us, it’s our way of making a difference. We started Who Gives A Crap when we learnt that 2.4 billion people don’t have access to a toilet (now 2 billion – yay for progress!). That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes.
We thought that was pretty crap. So in July 2012, Simon, Jehan and Danny launched Who Gives A Crap with a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. Simon sat on a toilet in our draughty warehouse and refused to move until we had raised enough pre-orders to start production. 50 hours and one cold bottom later, we’d raised over $50,000 (see the video here!)
We delivered our first product in March 2013 and have been thrilled to keep growing ever since. Not just because our toilet paper is gracing bathrooms across the country but also because we donate 50% of our profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
Though we’re still growing, and now make more than just toilet paper, we always want to stay true to our roots: toilet humor and making the world a better place.
