Resolved: Recycling...

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I do like the product; it smells wonderful and works fairly well for an eco-product. Unfortunately, the small glass refills are not as friendly as you may think.

The advantages and disadvantages of a glass bottle:

Like paper, glass is fully recyclable.

It can also be endlessly reprocessed with no loss of quality, according to England's national recycling campaign, Recycle Now. Glass is also a highly recycled material, with an average recycling rate of up to 80%, according to Glass Alliance Europe, while the paper recycling rate is at 66.2%, according to Recycling Today.

However, due to the heaviness of the material, transport emissions are high and glass can only be recycled in furnaces which use a lot of energy in order to reach a high heat, thus emitting pollution.

Furthermore, glass is made from sand, soda ash, limestone, and other additives. These materials needed to produce glass have to be quarried, which is a process that creates visual pollution and destroys wildlife habitats.

I won't be reordering.

Pros:
  • Love the smell
  • Cleaning is okay
Cons:
  • Not as environmentally friendly as other eco products

Preferred solution: The company needs to stop using small glass bottle refills.

User's recommendation: Tablet cleaning products that you add to water, one example: The Green Company.
