Ecover have a new campaign out its called “Message in our bottle” and their pledge is to help clean up the planet one bottle at a time.
Ecover have recognised that plastic is a huge problem, and for 3 years they have been working hard to find an alternative packaging solution, and they came up with this: PolyEthylene (PE) which in english terms to me and you is a green plastic which we call Plant-astic that’s 100% renewable, reusable and recyclable and its made from sugarcane! and they are so pleased with the outcome they are making all there bottles 100% plant-tastic! How cool!
Its very easy to make these bottles, sugarcane is originally harvested to produce sugar, which is then fermented and then distilled to produce ethanol. The ethanol is dehydrated to create ethylene, which is polymerized into Plant-astic, simples..
Ecover are currently in the process of changing all bottles over to the new packaging, and as of 2011 Ecovers products are being made from fantastic new plant-tastic
Cleaning the seas, one bottle at a time. Visit The-Splash for more information and to read our pledge.
