Earth Day 2024: Planet vs Plastics

Earth Day 2024: Planet vs Plastics

Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day unites people across the globe to celebrate our amazing planet and take action to protect it. It's a day to raise awareness about the issues facing our planet and to inspire people to take action towards a more sustainable future.

The focus of Earth Day can vary year to year, but it always centres around environmental issues like climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss.

This year's theme, "Planet vs Plastics", which highlights the issue of plastic pollution and its impact on the environment.

As consumers, we all have a role to play in reducing our environmental footprint. One area where we can make a significant impact is by choosing cleaning and laundry products that help to reduce plastic and are kinder to our skin and homes.

We'd love you to help you celebrate Earth Day so we're giving you 20% off our products that help to reduce plastic. [Look out for the code in your email inboxes if you subscribe to our newsletter and on the website this weekend.]

Why choose plastic-reducing cleaning and laundry products?

Traditional cleaning products often come in single-use plastic bottles, contributing significantly to plastic pollution. Landfills overflow with plastic waste, and millions of tonnes end up in our oceans, harming marine life and ecosystems.

By opting for more planet-thoughtful cleaning solutions, you can:

  • Reduce plastic waste: Opt for products that do not contain any plastic, come in concentrated formulas, can be used in refillable containers, or do not come in plastic packaging, or have recyclable packaging.
  • Minimise environmental impact: cleaning products that help to reduce plastic are often also plant-based or biodegradable and so are safer for waterways and wildlife, so choose ti support those companies.
  • Promote sustainability: Support companies that are committed to responsible manufacturing, reducing air miles and think about people and the planet before profit.


How Simple Living Eco can help you celebrate Earth Day (and every day!)

At Simple Living Eco we are passionate about providing effective plant-based laundry and cleaning solutions that are kinder to the planet than mainstream brands that you find in the supermarkets. We offer a variety of options, including:

  • Concentrated formulas: Our Concentrated Cleaners are shipped without added water and come in minimal packaging, resulting in a smaller environmental footprint. 
  • Products that help to reduce single use plastic - Our Laundry Detergent Sheets eliminate the need to buy single-use plastic detergent and fabric conditioner bottles. We also have a Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner Bar that replaces bottles of shampoo and conditioner.
  • Refillable options: Our Concentrated Cleaners can be added to any empty cleaning bottle with a spray which significantly reduces plastic waste. Our Concentrated Washing Up Liquid helps to reduce the need to buy single use plastic bottles and Refill pouches will be added to the website soon.
  • Recyclable packaging: We use recyclable packaging whenever possible, promoting sustainability throughout the product lifecycle.


Simple swaps for a big difference

Here are some simple and easy ways you can incorporate better for you and better for the planet cleaning products into your routine:

  • Ditch single-use bottles: Choose concentrated formulas and products that can be refilled or can be used in refillable bottles.
  • Opt for plant-based ingredients: plant-based ingredients are kinder to your skin, waterways and wildlife than products that contain toxic chemicals.
  • Choose plastic-free products: Look for products that not only reduce single-use plastic but come in cardboard packaging or recyclable plastic.
