Sustainable cleaning solutions manufacturer Greenspeed has said smaller-format products are growing in popularity.
Promoting its Probio Tabs compact tablets, the Europe-based supplier said the onus was on the market “to reduce waste by using the right cleaning products”.
“More and more cleaning products now come in a smaller form,” the company noted. “They benefit the environment and are easy to use: people no longer have to lug heavy products around and can significantly reduce their plastic waste. The question is whether all compact products are equally practical. In Greenspeed’s opinion, loose powders or soluble capsules that don’t dissolve completely are a step in the right direction, but not the best solution.”
Compared with six ready-to-use 300ml sprays, Greenspeed claims that its compact tablets can save up to 99% in CO2 emissions during transportation, and – after 1,000 refills – will reduce plastic usage and CO2 by 49 kg and 86 kg respectively.
