The Ultimate Guide To Zero Waste Cleaning Products - Ecobuy
The ultimate guide to zero waste cleaning products

On a daily basis, we’ll always face the needs of cleaning. Whether it be the kitchen countertops after you finish eating or mopping the floor to get rid of all the dust and debris. With this, we often use household, commercial cleaning products straight from our local supermarket’s shelves. The excess plastic made by every household solely from cleaning products (laundry detergent, countertop spray and glass sprays to name a few) has accumulated in our landfills. Not only has the excess plastic waste made a dent in our planet but also the chemicals within the cleaners that are ultimately detrimental to our health little by little overtime.

According to Enjo, “Australians produce 540kg of household waste per person each year. Cleaning products might not be a single-use plastic but they represent disposable household plastic waste that we should work towards reducing.”

The best way to combat this ongoing issue is by simply substituting our common household cleaners bought from our local supermarket to reusable, zero-waste products.

Sustainable cleaning has been made easy by Cove Cleaning. Cove Cleaning is an Australian based brand that prides themself on functionality and sustainability. They aim to shift their product designs to mould the culture forward, towards sustainability.

See what their customers have to say:

“I’m so impressed with the Cove range. All the products have exceptional cleaning power, better than the comparable leading supermarket products, & the best part for me is being kind to the planet. I’m especially impressed with the dishwasher tablets. I’m so happy that I discovered Cove & I’m bragging about it to everyone I know.” – Sarah-Jane C.

“Loving the new Cove range which I originally purchased in Coles! Part of my small business is domestic cleaning so I’m always on the hunt for new fabulous eco products and especially products which are helping to reduce waste and promote sustainability. Got the starter pack online as I wanted to get some extra bottles and cloths for home use and also to try out the laundry liquid (which smells amazing!). The three sprays all smell of beautiful essential oils and definitely aren’t overpowering or toxic smelling and THEY WORK! Super happy! Thank you Cove ” – Allie B.
