Require the manufacturer to select and formulate ingredients not only to ensure safety but to optimize the sustainability of the finished product when properly and diligently used.

Step 2 - Work with suppliers so that they responsibly manage their manufacturing impacts.

Challenge your supplier for evidence that they have effective control of impacts during the manufacturing phase. Key areas include:

Step 3 - Minimise the environmental impacts that arise during your cleaning operations.

Reduce your consumption of product, packaging and energy by buying effective products and using them efficiently to minimise wastage and disposal to landfill.

Myth Busters

Did you know the facts behind this common myth?

Myth: It doesn’t make much difference whether my laundry load is full or not

Fact: Only 49% of wash loads are fully loaded in Europe. If all loads were washed full, 715 million litres of water a day would be saved – the equivalent water used by 5 million people, or a city the size of Barcelona.
