Rethinking home and personal care products so you can make the ethical choice without compromising on convenience, effectiveness or aesthetics. Spruce started in order to challenge established consumer products that have not seen much innovation in years.
For decades, we have been cleaning our homes with toxic chemicals without realising they do more harm than good. Companies have been greenwashing consumers by selling single-use plastic bottles filled with 90% water content, topped with toxic chemicals, artificial dyes and fragrances while marketing these as the green and eco-friendly cleaning products.
Their goal is to put an end to single-use plastics and toxic chemicals from everyday products, and make it convenient for you to adopt the low-waste option. Spruce has been working diligently on perfecting our formulation and packaging to bring you high quality products that are kind to you and the planet. All of their packaging is carefully designed for convenience and with minimal impact to the planet.
Spruce hope you will join us on the journey to end single-use plastic pollution and have a positive impact on our planet.
They also remove the equivalent of 25 ocean-bound plastic bottles for each starter kit purchased!
How does Spruce work with Plastic Bank?
For every starter kit you purchase, we remove ocean-bound plastic waste equivalent to twenty-five 500ml plastic bottles. Working with our partner Plastic Bank, we support plastic waste collection in high poverty coastal communities.
Why do we do this?
For decades, developed nations have been shipping their contaminated plastic waste to the developing world. They lack the infrastructure to manage their own plastic waste, resulting in more plastic pollution in the oceans and air pollution resulting from incineration.
Why 25 bottles?
That's the equivalent of the number of single-use plastic cleaning bottles a typical UK household might go through in a year.
Why did we choose Plastic Bank?
The program funds bonuses that go towards supporting the waste collectors and the infrastructure needed to recirculate the plastic back into the global supply system.
What impact has Plastic Bank had so far?
The impact that Plastic Bank has had so far is amazing! To date, they have recovered ocean-bound plastics equivalent to:
This translates to roughly:
707,367,900 plastic bottles
1500000000 coffee cups
500000000000 plastic straws
We’re thrilled to partner with Plastic Bank to tackle plastic pollution that empowers local communities across the globe! For more information about the project, and how it’s helping people and the planet.
