Earth Brand has a mission to remove single-use plastics from the cleaning routines of Canadians
Canada’s largest janitorial support company is bringing its innovative industrial secret to the kitchens and bathrooms of everyday Canadians through their revolutionary Green Seal Certified cleaning pods. Plastic is a problem and water is heavy – Earth Brand tackles these problems by reusing existing bottles and taking the ‘just add water’ approach to the at-home cleaning process.
According to Oceana, Canadians produce a lot of plastic waste; an estimated 3.3 million tonnes per year. About 2.8 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in Canadian landfills every year – equivalent to the weight of 24 CN towers. Given this, the Government of Canada has recently passed legislation that bans single-use plastics by the end of 2021.
Earth Brand ensures that consumers can access high-quality cleaning solutions without the need for additional plastic waste. By replacing the need for single-use plastic cleaning products and reducing transport-related carbon emissions by up to 95%, Earth Brand is transforming the way Canadians clean with their easy-to-use and sustainable cleaning solution.
The completely dissolvable pods can be used to refill and reuse any existing spray bottle. Alternatively, the one-time purchase of a reusable Earth Brand bottle system will allow the consumer to simply add water to produce a powerful, earth-friendly cleaning solution.
By reusing existing plastic bottles, Earth Brand limits contributing to the overwhelming amount of plastic that currently exists in our environment. By recycling the Earth Brand Pouches that contain the pods, the system has a negative plastic footprint when reusing a single-use plastic spray bottle.
Earth Brand’s initial cleaning line-up is everything a consumer needs to keep their home clean, without contributing to the global plastic problem:
For ease-of-use, the pods are colour-coded, creating a cleaning system that is simple and intuitive – no specialized or complicated cleansers are needed. Consumers simply drop the dissolvable cleaning pod into water, shake, and they’re ready to clean. With lower shipping costs and no need for repeat bottle purchases, this innovative cleaning solution comes in at 75% of the cost of traditional, brand-name cleaning products.
“I am thrilled to introduce Earth Brand cleaning pods to the world. As an environmentally-conscious buyer and new father, I am always looking for ways for our family to be environmentally responsible, conveniently, without sacrificing quality or spending a fortune,” says Nik Barey, who is spearheading the launch of Earth Brand.
“We feel strongly that dissolvable cleaning pods are the future when it comes to household cleaning. We’ve seen the adoption of pods for laundry and dishwashing, it only makes sense for cleaning around the house!” Nik continued.
Earth Brand has a mission to remove single-use plastics from the cleaning routines of Canadians. By implementing pod-based cleaning solutions, consumers are able to reduce plastic waste introduced into the environment, reuse their favourite existing bottles, and recycle their plastic waste conscientiously.
