Caring for your world over the summer
At Earthwise, we don't set out to change the world but we do believe that every little bit helps. It's as simple as that...One drop, one lake. One leaf, one tree. Together, we can make the small changes that make a big difference. Here's a few suggestions on how you can care your your world as a consumer
Environmental Choice endorsement
Environmental Choice is a government owned and endorsed environmental labelling program that is independently audited. We are proud that the majority of the range of Earthwise laundry liquids and powders has met the high standard required and carry the Environmental Choice logo. This is an easy way to do something effective to make your own personal contribution to living sustainably every time you shop.
Good change takes time
As recently as five years ago, environmentally-friendly products were still viewed as premium products - so Earthwise set about changing all that. In a recent radio interview, Rory Garvey talked about the company's drive to make it easier for Kiwis to bring about good change.
Did you know of the roughly 150 litres of water a day that we each get through – around 20% washes our clothes and 30% or more washes our bodies? One way of reducing the load on the water system, saving money and being more environmentally-friendly is to install a system to reuse your household ‘grey water’. But you need to be extra careful which household personal care and laundry products you buy. Find out why in this blog.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle — Rot
We love recycling! The team at Earthwise often get asked about the environmental impact of our products so we thought that Recycling Week would be the perfect time to talk packaging. We had a chat with our resident environmental chemist, Gill Worth, to get her take on recycling, composting and biodegradable plastics.
The tick that keeps on ticking
We're top of the class! Now a wide range of the Earthwise products that you rely on for the great cleaning power have been independently proven to be environmentally gentler too! Four of our ranges have now received the Environmental Choice tick.
