WHEN DID CLEANING BECOME SO UNSUSTAINABLE AND COMPLIACTED?
Last time we check the supermarket shelf we counted: 53 different cleaning liquids, with 41 various scents, and 15 "unique" surface cleaning solutions. All of them are mostly 95% water wrapped in one-time-use plastic.
Throwing the cleaning bottle in the bin after usage is a considerable contribution to the global plastic waste! This is why we started Skosh.
Our mission is to make cleaning sustainable while making it more convenient for everybody.
WE ARE RELYING ON RECYCLED AND COMPOSTABLE MATERIALS
Sustainability comes first
The core value of our products is sustainability. This means we strictly rely on eco-friendly ingredients as well as compostable and recycled materials.
100% recycled plastic
Our spray bottles are entirely made from recycled plastic. The material is called “PCR” which stands for Post Consumer Resin. Thus, instead of introducing new (virgin) plastic into the cycle we take existing plastic and produce new products. Through this approach, we are able to reduce plastic waste bit by bit.
Concentrating on reusing instead of one-time-use comes with substantial benefits for the environment. Since we don’t produce a new bottle for every refill, we are able to save over 1.700 tons of CO2 emissions per year. This means that we can prevent 95% of CO2 emissions by reusing our cleaning bottles!
Existing liquid refill solutions make it easy to reuse the bottles you already have at home. Just buy the refiller, fill it into your bottle, mix it with tap-water and you are ready to go. However, a tablet provides the additional advantage that one doesn’t need any plastic packaging since it is in a dehydrated state.
Because we don’t have to transport any water weight around the planet, we’re able to reduce transportation CO2 emissions by 96%! The ingredientsare all eco-friendly and achieve outstanding cleaning performance. We further used natural coloring and scents.
We made sure to strictly rely on materials and resources that are made from recycled material. The starter kit cardboard material is fully biodegradable, the tablets are packaged in coated FSC paper which is fully recyclable and the bottle is made from fully recycled plastic (PCR PP).
WE ARE SUPPORTING 3 OF THE GLOBAL SUSTAINABILE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
GOAL NO. 12
We are following a circular business model by focusing on reusing instead of one-time-use. Our bottles are designed to last forever and might be the last spray bottle you will ever buy. Say goodbye to one-time-use plastic and hello to reusable bottles!
GOAL NO. 13
PROTECT THE PLANET
Why do we ship all that unnecessary water weight around the planet when it is already at your home? Since current cleaning solutions are up to 95% water, the cleaning industry produces a substantial but avoidable share of the worldwide CO2 emissions. Through tablets, we are to reduce CO2 emissions by 96%!
GOAL NO. 14
LIFE BELOW WATER
One garbage truck of plastic waste is dumped into our oceans every minute. Plastic brakes into small particles called micro-plastic. Those particles get eaten by marine animals. In fact 1 out of 3 fish has plastic in their guts. By completely relying on non-plastic packaging solutions we try to protect the life below water.
