The current environmental crisis...

Plastic is a growing environmental issue threatening our planet, with a build-up of plastic both in the ocean and around the world where plastic waste flowing into the oceans is forecast to triple by 2040. Once at sea, plastic waste breaks down into small particles, these micro plastics spread throughout the water column and have been found in every corner of the globe. These microplastics have been found in drinking water systems and drifting through the air causing harm to wildlife and humans.

 

Here are some plastic facts for you…

  • Half of all plastics ever manufactured have been made in the last 15 years.
  • Production increased exponentially, from 2.3 million tons in 1950 to 448 million tons by 2015. Production is expected to double by 2050.
  • Every year, about 8 million tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans from coastal nations. That’s the equivalent of setting five garbage bags full of trash on every foot of coastline around the world.
  • Plastics often contain additives making them stronger, more flexible, and durable. But many of these additives can extend the life of products if they become litter, with some estimates ranging to at least 400 years to break down.

 

Let's Sanitise are taking this crisis seriously and want to do everything we can to reduce any waste in our products and making it easier for you to recycle your products purchased from us!

We will take care of all things you can't recycle at home including pumps, caps and flexible tubes. Simply pop all non-recyclable items in the compostable bag provided and return to us. We will then dispose all the items using our Terracycle program.

All orders returned to us will receive 20% discount code to use towards your next refill bottle.

Alternatively, if you aren’t ready to send your bottle(s) back to us, we highly recommend purchasing our refill bottles and pouches to  keep reusing your bottles. Shop hand wash refill pouches, hand gel refills and mist spray refills.

Additionally, we have signed up with ecology where a tree is planted for every order placed. So far we have planted 2,370 trees, helping forest restoration in Kenya, planting in Madagascar and Uganda as well as reforestation projects in Mozambique.

Helping wildlife and the planet in any way we can is so important to us, and we really hope we have encouraged you to recycle your products of ours, down to the caps and pumps. From planting a tree when you purchase fully recycling your product at the end of its lifecycle, we hope we have another reason to shop with us and return again soon!
