On a mission to remove single use plastic
Plastic is made to last forever but mostly is used only once. Australia generated 75.8 million tonnes of solid waste in 2018-19, which was a 10% increase over the last two years (since 2016-17). Across the world 14 billion pounds of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year which is breaking down into small particles called microplastics. These particles are increasingly showing up in our food and water supply. According to studies 90% of the water we drink and 31% of the fish we eat contains microplastics which is causing health issues.
Cleaning products traditionally come in heavy, single use plastic bottles. With each evercleaner tab you save one plastic bottle and carbon emissions. Everyone has water at home, so why not use that water? This way we are able to reduce carbon emissions by 85%. We want to remove single use plastic from all households in Australia and we are starting with this amazing and eco-friendly innovation: cleaning tablets.
evercleaner was founded by Casper and Benjamin in 2021 with a big dream: to remove single use plastic - forever. With backgrounds in food manufacturing and e-commerce they were horrified to see the amounts of plastic being used behind the scenes to manufacture and package products. They started exploring ideas and concepts on reducing the environmental impact in everyday life. Entirely removing plastic bottles for kitchen, bathroom and glass cleaners and instead replacing them with tabs and re-usable bottles is their first step of a big dream.
