Bower Collective’s refillable washing up liquid is just one of a wide range of eco-friendly products that the brand offers. With the washing liquid and their other solutions, they come in a refill pouch which you can decant into a reusable bottle or simply pour the contents straight from the easy pour pouch. What we love about Bower Collective is that once you’ve finished you send the pouches back in a prepaid return parcel and they sterilise them before refilling them again to send on to other customers.
8. Ecozone Soap Nuts
Soap nuts may sound a bit strange but they’ve actually been used for quite some time in South Asia. Soap nuts are a type of tree nut that grow on a small tree called Sapindus Mukorossi tree. They are a valuable source of natural oil, which is used to make soap. So, soap nuts are a natural, eco-friendly way to wash your clothes. Because soap nuts are natural they are organic, hypoallergenic and biodegradable. They’re also highly cost-effective and you can purchase them from Ecozone now.
So there you have it, your cleaning routine can now be completely eco-friendly.
