Our Picks Of Eco-friendly Washing-up Liquids
A hot topic in recent years has been (and very much still is) eco-friendly ways of living. Odds are you’ve already made conscious changes to your lifestyle as a result of this, such as buying less single-use plastics, eating more locally produced foods, and trying to buy refills rather than brand new products.
These are all great efforts, but what about your washing-up liquid? Perhaps you’ve already got your eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging nailed down, but it’s equally important to consider the actual contents of this.
Chemicals in some non-eco cleaning products can be harmful to humans, wildlife, and the environment. That’s why this round-up of eco-friendly washing-up liquids can be a great guide when you’re next shopping for cleaning heroes. See what we did there?
