Green cleaning company, Bio-D, has saved more than 70 tonnes of carbon emissions in one year by using post-consumer plastic packaging.

The company has achieved a 13 per cent reduction in carbon emissions per single product it creates and has also saved over 70 tonnes worth of CO2 emissions by using bottles created from post-consumer plastic, which is detailed in Bio-D’s most recent Sustainability and Impact Report.

Heather Nixon, Sustainability, NPD and Regulatory Manager, commented: “For half a decade now, we have been reporting on our practices and goals. We have been holding ourselves accountable, and that in itself has driven great changes and improvement. With the increase of greenwashing and ever growing ‘eco’ brands, our customers can be assured that creating environmentally responsible products is far more than wording on a label.”

Continually innovating, Bio-D has recently redesigned its 12.5kg Washing Powder packaging so that the same amount of product is now in a smaller box – saving over 25 per cent of cardboard compared to its previous packaging. Additional successes from 2023 include a 25 per cent reduction in electricity usage at Bio-D’s factory and an overall decrease of over 30 per cent in waste CO2e compared to the previous year. Its focus on five litre and 20 litre refill options for its product has also saved over 1.3 million consumer sized bottles over the past year.

Over the past five years, Bio-D has reduced its gas carbon footprint to zero and transferring to electricity generated solely by solar power means that the company is net zero for both Scope 1 and Scope 2.
