That’s enough for me to know SPRING is here. The flip flops are out and I have started throwing open the doors and windows at every possible opportunity. Time to dust off the cobwebs, shake out the rugs and finally give the windows a wash. I can no longer use the rain as a good enough reason for the chocolate and snot smeared windows.
We’ve started using Greener Cleaner products and I have a set of their eco-friendly spring cleaning range to give away.
I read the other day that 4 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year. A toothbrush is a fraction of the size of a kitchen brush and we go through a fair few of those a year too. Every piece of plastic we throw away will take over 1000 years to degrade. Pretty scary really. Especially when you realise most of this plastic ends up in our oceans and is destroying our eco-system.
GREENER CLEANER make a range of 60% recycled plastic and 40% wood pulp cleaning products. This seems such a simple idea considering plastic has such a long life, and yet we treat it as such a disposable resource. Their products are preventing large volumes of throw away plastic going into landfill. The patented eco-flex material includes 40% wood pulp, which will bio-degrade and is much kinder to the environment. They also sell eco-friendly antibacterial cleaning liquids which are much kinder to our oceans and are made in the UK.
As someone who really doesn’t get excited about cleaning, I think this stuff is pretty fab. I can’t see why all our plastic things aren’t made in the same way. Think about all those plastic toys? Why can’t we make Lego and Barbies like this?
Greener Cleaner are devoted to a philosophy of doing things the right way, for the right reason. Shouldn’t all companies be doing to same?
So what next?
Unfortunately Greener Cleaner are still working on a range of products that actually make cleaning fun. Until that time, I can highly recommend some very loud Kate Bush and a large glass of wine. (Any music you like to sing along to will do – but the wine is essential)
This weekend was a pretty big party in our house for my husbands 40th so the Greener Cleaner gear has really been put to the test. Clearing up after 100 guests is never fun but I can finally say I feel I am getting on top of it.
