Recycled plastic packaging for Bio-D

Recycled plastic packaging for Bio-D

UK eco cleaning product company Bio-D is switching all of its packaging to recycled plastic

Bio D packaging will all be recycled plastic by the end of 2018

Bio-D recycled plastic packaging has already been introduced for many of its liquid products and all plastic used by the company should be recycled post consumer plastic by the end of 2018.

British eco cleaning brand Bio-D is introducing new packaging for its liquid products made from 100 per cent UK post-consumer waste. With growing global concern over contamination from plastic packaging, the Yorkshire-based company – which produces more than 20 products including washing up liquid, hand sanitiser and floor cleaner - hopes its decision will encourage other brands to follow its lead.
 
At present although much of the plastic packaging used for household products is recyclable, it's still made from a large amount of newly-produced ‘virgin’ plastic, polymers derived from fossil fuels. By contrast, new packaging already being used by Bio-D is made from recycled plastic only. The more companies switch to recycled plastic, so landfill waste and quantities of ocean plastic will reduce.
 
Bio-D managing director Lloyd Atkin says 'don't cost the earth' should be everyone's ethos: 'The issue of plastic waste is always high on the green agenda, as the amount that the world’s population collectively uses and wastes currently shows no sign of slowing. At Bio-D, we’re passionate about making products that don’t cost the earth and want to lead by example; this is consistent across all our production processes, from the ingredients we use in our detergents to how we make our bottles.'
 
The new recycled plastic packaging is being introduced across the majority of Bio-D products and should be rolled out fully across all products by the end of this year.
 
Bio-D was formed in Hull, Yorkshire in 1989. It produces hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly products made from sustainable, naturally-derived raw materials. Bio-D products are free from synthetic fragrances, preservatives and enzymes. All are approved by Cruelty Free International and the Vegan Society, and its fragrance-free products are accredited by Allergy UK.
