1000 Flowers for the Planet - #451 Buy Concentrates
Often we have the option to buy concentrated products, and many household cleaning products are available that way. If you feel the need to buy products specifically for cleaning, because you don’t feel water alone can possibly clean anything, then seek out products you can buy in concentrate so that you decrease the amount of packaging you use. This saves so much more than just packaging – it saves resources, it saves transportation and all the costs involved in moving stuff from one place to another, so it saves fossil fuels, it reduces your need to travel to the shops to replace product and it saves money. All of these things are better for the planet.
