Biovate Hygienics Introduces Paper Bottles for Cleaning Products

Biovate Hygienics Introduces Paper Bottles for Cleaning Products
15 March 2023
 

One of the world’s first plastic free paper bottles for commercial cleaning products has launched at The Cleaning Show.

Biovate Hygienics’ “Zero Compromise” cleaning products feature bottles made of vegetable waste fibre paper pulp. The paper can be easily pulped in most recycling centres and the natural coating comes away and is used within the organic waste stream for composting back to nature.

The bottle has been designed to be recyclable or compostable, while its screw neck and cap are made of Moso Bamboo that breaks down easily and can also be recycled. An interior bio-liner prevents contact with the liquid.

The range includes 500 ml ultra concentrates of floor and wall degreasers and washroom and multi-purpose cleaners. The products do not contain any petroleum-derived ingredients and Biovate Hygienics is intending to submit the range to organic certification organisation, Ecocert, to be classified as natural eco detergents.

Co-Founder Nick Winstone said: “We spoke to cleaning operatives, managers in cleaning businesses and distributors and we kept on hearing the same thing, namely that the industry wants to eliminate chemicals and plastic from their cleaning practices. However, it was also clear that the products still needed to smell good, work better and cost no more than the chemicals they were replacing. After this extensive feedback we are delighted to unveil our 'Zero Compromise' range”.

“Our plastic-free bottle is made in the UK using sustainably sourced vegetable waste fibre paper pulp. This makes the bottle not only plastic free but it’s also created using materials that would otherwise be discarded. This sustainable sourcing also means that no trees were cut down in the production of our new bottles, helping to reduce waste and decrease our carbon footprint”.  

Founded in 2022, Biovate Hygienics achieved £2 million in sales in its first year of trading.
