Why Choose OceanSaver EcoDrops
Written by Hazel Barraclough
For most of us cleaning the house is our least favourite activity, unless you’re Mrs Hinch! Walking down the cleaning isle of the supermarket can be overwhelming, with row upon row of plastic bottles – when did cleaning get so complicated?
It can be difficult to know where to start with eco-friendly cleaning, especially if you want to go zero waste. It takes time to make your own cleaning products and, let’s face it, we don’t have that luxury – we are all juggling. This is where OceanSaver drops come in – they’re eco-friendly with minimal waste, so let’s get back to basics; one drop, one bottle and add tap water, it’s that simple!
There has been this misconception that eco-cleaners don’t work as well as traditional cleaners. OceanSaver have proven them wrong – they work just as well, just look at the video to see for yourself.
What are OceanSaver EcoDrops?
OceanSaver was create from a love of the ocean and a concern over the plastic problem, the scary statistic that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Thankfully, the OceanSaver company have taken a stand and created a solution.
EcoDrops are made from a water soluble & 100% biodegradable film (PVOH), plant-based, cruelty free, non-toxic and completely dissolve into water without generating any micro or nano plastics, creating a safe and mighty product to clean your home spotlessly, completely replacing your traditional sprays and saving another plastic bottle. Small change. Big impact.
They are so easy to use, simply add one drop to an empty plastic trigger bottle, fill with water and shake!
What makes them sustainable?
Firstly, the EcoDrops are 100% plastic free, their packaging is entirely cardboard and the cylindrical pods are completely biodegradable in water, they disappear within seconds, it’s that quick. OceanSaver EcoDrops have four key characteristics that make them sustainable and it’s why we love them:
- Pods are plant-based
- Non-toxic – perfectly safe for animals
- Cruelty free.
Once you have dropped the pod into water, it releases a powerful concentrated cleaning solution that can be immediately used on your surfaces. Regular cleaning products can contain up to 90% water, which are then shipped all over the country. EcoDrops are small and lightweight which means fewer trucks on the road, helping to reduce carbon emissions.
Why choose OceanSaver EcoDrops over cheaper non-sustainable alternatives?
While these EcoDrops are not the cheapest they are not extortionate products. Yes, you could get a cheaper alternative but at a cost to the environment and your health. After an endorsement of Zoflora by Mrs Hinch declaring it a “must have” there has been a surge of interest of this cheap cleaning product. But what people don’t realise is that cheap cleaning products similar to Zoflora contains chemical ingredients which are potentially are not only harmful to the environment but also humans. The most shocking chemical included is Butylbenzyl Propionaldehyde, also known as lilial, which is essentially a perfume used in many cleaning products. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) classifies lilial as “toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects, may damage fertility or the unborn child, is harmful if swallowed, causes skin irritation and may cause an allergic skin reaction.”
EcoDrops are safe for humans, animals and aquatic life. Once diluted they are safe to use around children and pets, no worries about if your pet or even child is going to lick the surface you have cleaned using EcoDrops.
Why choose this over other sustainable alternatives?
OceanSaver EcoDrops are cheaper than most sustainable alternatives – our anti-bac spray is £1.50 (£1.20 if you’re a Home Club member) while method anti-bac spray is £3. Not only are they cheaper, each time but you use one, you are also not buying another plastic bottle. With OceanSaver you can buy a bottle for life and reuse them over and over, or use one of your own.
Why not try them out for yourselves and discover an insanely impressive product that combats tough stains, dust and spills that is better for the environment and saves space in your cupboards. If you want to save even more join Home Club for a discounted price.
