Sustainable design

You want the detergent and maintenance products you use to be in a robust yet lightweight container that doesn’t break or leak easily and that is easy to handle and dispense the contents from. Plastic delivers all of those benefits.

So how do we reduce our use of plastic when it comes to our products? The industry is working hard on this and has set a target to have all plastic packaging of household cleaning products be recyclable, compostable or reusable, with at least 20% recycled content by 2025.

It is also working on the design of plastic packaging to reduce plastic use. For example, certain bottles now have a plastic sleeve with all the label information on. This enables greater use of – non coloured - recycled plastic as sleeves can be individually designed. Lightweighting of packaging is another example of better design.

A circular approach

In the bigger picture, instead of the linear economy that we have been used to, where we make things, use them, and then throw them or their packaging away, the idea is to design away waste and pollution from the start. We move towards a circular economy where we recycle all the plastic items we use to keep them in the economy and out of the environment.

This is the vision of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, which the A.I.S.E, which represents the industry in Europe, has officially endorsed.

Recycle and refill

In addition to companies‘ efforts to design their packaging more sustainably, consumers have a key role to help packaging be more circular by sorting them in the right bin! This is why we recommend you to retain permanent or refillable packaging and buy refill packs where available.

The content is just the same and it means less cardboard and/or plastic packaging waste. Generally, follow the guidance provided by your municipality to sort smartly!

Fólie na obalech

Některé prací, mycí a čisticí produkty se nyní dodávají v lahvích, které jsou vyrobeny z recyklovaného materiálu, a jsou potaženy plastovou fólií označením v podobě návleku. Obaly s vysokým množstvím recyklovaného obsahu (někdy až 100 %) mají často žlutý nebo šedavý odstín. Výhodou této tenké fólie je skutečnost, že ji lze přizpůsobit a že zakrývá lahev. Díky této metodě není nutné samotnou nádobu barvit, což usnadňuje její recyklaci po odebrání fólie. Vzhledem k tomu, že lahev a fólie označení jsou často vyrobeny z odlišných materiálů, fólii je nutné před recyklací od lahve oddělit. Tímto způsobem lze zajistit vysokou míru recyklace. Uvidíte-li tuto ikonu, nezapomeňte prosím za účelem recyklace oddělit fólii označení produktu od lahve.
Poznámka: Některé produkty mohou obsahovat také perforovanou část, která ukazuje, kde lze začít s odtrháváním fólie označení.
