Cif launches refill bottle that you can use again to cut down on plastic
If you use Cif to keep your house clean, we have some good news.
The brand has launched concentrated refills that use way less plastic.
The ecorefill will remove 1.5 million plastic bottles from UK supermarkets.
Available in a kitchen or bathroom version, the idea is you add the concentrated refill to an old spray bottle and mix it with water.
You just twist the top, click it into a bottle and shake it and add the spray top before starting to clean.
When that runs out, you can buy another refill and top it up.
The refill bottles are currently 75% recyclable and Cif hopes to make them 100% recyclable by the end of next year.
They also hope to role out more products in the same format in the future.
The bottles promise the same 583 cleans as the original spray bottles.
The brand already sells refill bottles, where you can reuse the spray head on each bottle but this is taking it a step further.
The ecorefill bottles cost £2.50, which is around the same price as the normal bottles, depending on where you shop.
You can pick up the refill bottles from Amazon, Ocado and Morrison’s from next month.
It’s great news that brands are starting to recognise the need to use less plastic.
Elsewhere, Aldi announced last month that they were getting rid of plastic packaging from their toilet paper.
Boots also started to replace all their plastic bags with fully recyclable paper bags, and even McDonald’s scrapped the plastic from their McFlurry and salad packaging.
