Solving a plastic pandemic with "Think Green"
If you were to go through any cleaning supplies cupboard or store, you’d see a selection of tubs, bottles, sponges and other miscellaneous cleaning consumables. What common features do these items all have? They are usually all made of plastic. When used up or empty, these items are disposed of, and all too often they end up in landfills.
It’s estimated that the UK uses 5 million tons of plastic every year. Single-use bottles, product packaging, delivery materials, and even our clothes make up this shocking statistic; but one of the easiest ways to reduce our plastic consumption is to rethink how we clean.
What is "Think Green" and how we making cleaning sustainable?
CMT Think Green offers a sustainable alternative to break the cycle. Our environmentally responsible cleaning products entirely remove the need of single-use plastic bottles, without compromising on hygiene. We offer a range of soluble tablets for all basic cleaning solutions - just simply add water into a reusable spray bottle. The tablet breaks down and combines with the water to create powerful cleaning solutions that will get the job done as efficiently as any pre-bottled brand of spray.
Developed and manufactured in the UK, we are providing a simple solution to an all-too-common problem. Our tablets are cruelty-free and vegan, meaning they cut out any animal products and aren’t tested on animals either, on top of reducing reliance on single-use plastics.
Every pallet of our capsules is the equivalent of 38 tons of ready-made products. This is a 92% reduction in volume, and 97% reduction in weight, meaning a great saving in transportation emissions. The capsules really do improve sustainability across the board.
CMT offers eight cleaning solutions, ranging from a classic surface cleaner, disinfectants, toilet cleaners, and degreasers. With a variety of fragranced and fragrance-free options and colour-coded for easy identification, this versatile sustainable cleaning product can easily replace the conventional cleaning supplies that fill up your cupboards and landfill. You can either opt to reuse spray bottles or containers you already have or invest in the CMT -Think Green Bottle4Life; designed for our capsules and featuring labels, instructions and measurements.
