Packaging

We use a mix of recycled and recyclable materials for our packaging.

Minimising packaging is our biggest ongoing challenge. Right now we’re reducing waste wherever we can and using a mix of recycled and recyclable materials for our packaging.

Here's a quick breakdown of the things we're currently doing:

  • Laundry boxes = 95% recycled.
  • Auto dish tab boxes = 85% recycled (some virgin material is needed for strength).
  • ecostore bottles = HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) - code 2 for recycling. 
  • Screw-top plastic lids on some of our bulk containers = Polypropylene - code 5 for recycling. (Lids have to be tougher to withstand pressure needed to tighten them).
  • We’re testing ways to use post-consumer recycled plastic in our bottles.
  • Polypropylene labels printed on a clear polyester backing = fully recyclable and don't need to be removed for recycling. 
  • Clear backing and labels reduce the amount of printing inks and dyes required.
  • Water-based adhesive is used to apply our labels.
  • We offer refills and bulk sizes. 
  • The plastic bag inside our laundry boxes is made of LDPE (code 4 for recycling). We’re getting rid of the bag as soon as we’ve made some adjustments to our laundry powder. 
  • Measuring scoops inside our laundry powder boxes = 100% post-consumer regrind plastic. 
  • We manufacture the only plastic trigger spray in NZ that contains no metal parts making it fully recyclable.
