Ecover makes cleaning products that are effective, good for the environment, and made from natural, sustainable, and plant based ingredients. You can clean your home with their products and avoid the chemicals that you don’t want around. This is a good way for you and your family to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Ecover has four categories of products: Dishwashing, Household, Laundry, and Zero. They make dishwashing liquid, automatic dishwashing powder, and automatic dishwashing tablets. Household products include bathroom cleaner, toilet cleaner, glass and surface cleaners, floor soap, all purpose cleaner, hand soap, limescale removal, and more. Laundry products include laundry liquid, laundry bleach, stain remover, fabric softener, and more. The Zero line has a variety of products from all the other categories, but without fragrance. You can buy Ecover products online, through the Ecover store at Alice.com. Prices range from about $3.00 to around $11.00.
Products that are fragrance free are great for people who have allergies, (or who live with family members who have them). A floral fragrance can cause people who have allergies to pollen to have an allergic reaction. Most of Ecover’s products are gluten free, (except for the Lemon and Aloe Washing Up Liquid, which contains wheat). Cleaning products that are made from plant based ingredients are nice because they do not contain petrochemicals, (that can irritate the skin of some people). Ecover has its headquarters located in Malle, near Antwerp in Belgium, and also has sites in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Switzerland. The Ecover mission statement is: “Making a healthy and sustainable lifestyle easy”.
