Preserving Our Oceans: A Call to Action

Eco-Friendly Alternatives: A Path to Sustainable Living

At The Cleaning Collective, we believe that making small changes in our daily lives can have a profound impact on the health of our oceans. We try to do our bit and stock a wide range of eco-friendly products, carefully selected for their sustainability and effectiveness in reducing plastic waste.

Ecozone stands out for its unwavering dedication to eco-conscious practices. Not only do their products effectively clean your home, but they also go a step further by utilising recycled plastic in their bottles. By choosing Ecozone, you actively support the reduction of plastic waste, making a positive impact on the environment while maintaining a pristine living space. Additionally, all Ecozone products are vegan and cruelty-free, aligning with the values of those who seek ethical and sustainable options.

Bio-D is another brand we offer, renowned for its commitment to renewable and sustainable ingredients. Their wide range of eco-friendly cleaning and laundry products enables you to uphold your cleaning routines while minimizing your ecological footprint. With Bio-D, you can trust that every cleaning task you undertake contributes to the well-being of the planet without compromising on quality or performance.

Excitingly, we will soon be introducing Ocean Saver to our product lineup. Ocean Saver revolutionises the way we clean by providing water-soluble sachets that transform into effective cleaning solutions when mixed with water in reusable spray bottles. These innovative sachets are not only convenient but also contribute to tackling plastic pollution. Made from recycled plastics, they give a second life to materials that would otherwise harm our oceans and environment.

Reducing Plastic Waste With Toucan Eco

In addition to these eco-friendly brands, we also want to talk about the Toucan Eco. This product goes a step further, by eliminating the use of single use plastic bottles all together. This innovative technology allows users to create their own cleaning and sanitising solution using just water, salt, and electricity. By electrolyzing these ingredients, the Toucan Eco device produces a powerful disinfectant that is effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This method eliminates the need for single-use plastic cleaning products, as users can simply refill their Toucan Eco device whenever needed.

The Toucan Eco system not only reduces plastic waste but also eliminates the consumption of harmful chemicals often found in traditional cleaning products. By implementing this technology, households and businesses can actively contribute to a healthier environment while maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene.

So Why Should You Care?

Plastic poses a grave threat to marine creatures such as birds, whales, fish, and turtles, as they can easily mistake it for food. This can result in severe consequences, including starvation, as their stomachs become filled with plastic instead of nourishing sustenance. Moreover, plastic can inflict injuries and entanglement upon these animals.

Over time, plastics disintegrate in the ocean, transforming into "microplastics" that are small enough to enter not only human lungs but also the wombs of expectant mothers. In a recent discovery, microplastics were even found in human embryos.

The full extent of the repercussions caused by ingesting plastic is not yet comprehensively understood. However, it is believed that microplastics can give rise to health complications and potentially trigger premature death in humans.

Making a change to help our oceans is imperative due to the interconnected nature of marine ecosystems and their impact on both fish populations and human well-being. By taking action to reduce plastic pollution and promote sustainability, we can protect marine life, preserve fragile ecosystems, ensure a sustainable seafood source, and safeguard human health. Our individual choices today will have a profound knock-on effect, creating a positive ripple that will benefit the oceans, the fish that inhabit them, and ultimately, ourselves. It is crucial that we act now to create a healthier and more resilient future for our oceans and the generations to come.
