Go shopping in major supermarkets and the environmentally friendly household products can be thin on the ground. Pick anything off the shelf and it is unlikely to be made here in the UK. Ecover & Method is a very familiar sight on supermarket shelves and disappointingly has been shipped here from other countries.
Ecover & Method are owned by S.C Johnson & Son Inc, an Wisconsin, American cleaning company. They have factories in the US, Belgium & France, with most UK products made in Europe.
For years I have attempted to support my local UK household brands and below are the 3 most transparent environmentally friendly companies. All are certified vegan, cruelty-free and an ethical consumer best buy.
Bio-D – The best UK company for laundry products. Made from plant-based, vegan and cruelty-free certified ingredients. Made in Yorkshire UK and packaged in 100% recycled UK plastic waste.
Hero Product – Laundry liquid & bleach
Greenscent – A range of laundry and cleaning products made from organic, plant-based ingredients and scented with essential oils. (Or unscented for those with sensitive skin). The packaging is recyclable and is made from waste sugar cane and is refillable. Made in Somerset.
3 Great UK brands. All Ethical Consumer Best Buys.
