Even though we all do what we can to make our homes sustainable, there is still so much out of our hands. We inherently rely on the brands we choose to clean with to make environmentally sustainable choices in their supply chain. Fortunately, there are some top brands using their influence for good – companies like these are mindful of energy economy, constantly looking to cut back on water consumption, and not afraid to have a conversation about it!
Read on for more information about the brands that contribute to sustainability:
Three Examples of Sustainable Innovation
- Persil started to produce Persil small & mighty eco packs in 2015. The pack boasts five more washes more than their hard bottle counterparts, uses 78% less plastic, and can be used to refill a larger bottle to avoid purchasing more plastic. All of these attributes make the pack environmentally sustainable by encouraging us to purchase less plastic, less often.
- Domestos has partnered with UNICEF to promote World Toilet Day, the goal being to raise awareness of the sanitation crisis around the world. Without access to basic sanitation, children and women are not only at risk for disease but also abuse and a lower quality of education. Communities at risk are the best example of the necessity of responsible water use, worldwide.
- Sun regularly promotes the fact that machine dishwashers use up to 85% water than washing by hand… we had to look that up too! By running full dishwashers instead of leaving the tap running while doing your washing up by hand, you can have an immediate and positive impact on the energy economy, which is the relationship between supply and use of energy in our society. Whether that’s gas, electricity, or water consumption, every bit helps!
