Greenscents is committed to sustainable packaging which reduces our carbon footprint and ensures that we respect the Earth’s resources. We are continually searching for new approaches to plastic-free packaging and you may see different versions of our bottles and boxes which are on trial.
Greenscents is proud to say
The “I’m Green” logo means that Greenscents has made a commitment to renewable, environmentally sustainable packaging. All Greenscents bottles are plastic-free, made from biopolymer plastics which are produced from the waste products from sugar cane. A lot of packaging is made from conventional polyethylene, which traditionally contains fossil based raw materials, such as oil or natural gas. The renewable sugar cane captures CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, this biopolymer is also recyclable, which means landfill dumping can be greatly reduced.
Our new 5 litre containers are entirely recyclable and made from sustainable cardboard and plastics. The boxes and bag can be flat packed which reduces volume and transport energy. The 5 litre option provides you with the ultimate flexibility for use and is very sustainable too.
Greenscents offers two types of 20 litre containers for you to choose from:
- The classic 20 litre jerrycan made from conventional plastic which is very robust. We are happy for you return these jerrycans for washing with organic cider vinegar and reuse which significantly improves their sustainability
- The 20 litre bag-in-box option which is totally recyclable. Just flatten the box when you have finished with it and recycle as cardboard then send the plastic inner bag back to us for specialist recycling.
Sustainable and Recyclable Boxes
All Greenscents boxes are made from sustainable cardboard and can be recycled easily. When you receive your box of Greenscents products you will often see loose filler which is used to protect the products. Our filler is made from renewable sources, is 100% biodegradable and fully compostable. Alternatively, we may use shredded cardboard which can be recycled in the usual way. Our packaging tape is made from sustainable paper and is 100% recyclable.
I have atopic eczema and have been suffering a flare since February. I have tried numerous cleaning products that claim to be sensitive skin friendly, including the simplest of cleaning hacks, such as vinegar, however all have left me with sore, rash-y skin, other than Greenscents! I am delighted. Thank you so much for producing this fabulous product that has left my home gleaming and my skin happy!Grace R,
