Suma says 'Put a Little Spring in your Cleaning!'
Published: 16/03/2015 by Suma
It’s been five years since we first launched Ecoleaf, our own brand of cleaning products and we’re really proud of how well it is doing.
Derived from plant extracts and made form biodegradable and natural ingredients, these multi award winning eco friendly household cleaning products have been added to, and updated since they were first launched in 2009.
One of our favourite aspects of Ecoleaf is that unlike some other environmentally friendly cleaning ranges, they are all made entirely in the UK, not a million miles from Suma HQ.
Last year saw us add “Fresh Linen” Laundry Liquid and Fabric Conditioner, a “Cool Blue” Toilet cleaner and a “Grapefruit Twist” Liquid Hand Soap to our the range – all are non-toxic, safe for use around the home, and kind to the environment. It’s not just the performance and ingredients that we care about, the products all carry the BUAV cruelty free logo, are certified as vegan and come in fully recyclable packaging.
As a range, it’s been really successful, selling well and winning awards - Ecoleaf Laundry Liquid was awarded Best Eco Product in both Natural Lifestyle magazine and Your Healthy Living magazine in addition to the Ecoleaf range being awarded Best Household products in Health Food Business magazine.
There are many other products, which can be bought from Suma that are also being made by UK companies, which are ethically motivated and have a minimal impact on the environment.
Bio-D is an independently owned company, dedicated to promoting the use of hypoallergenic, environmentally responsible detergents. We’ve been selling their products for as long as we can remember.
Ecoegg gives you laundry from just 5p per wash and tumble drying time reduced by 28%! Environmentally friendly and free from any harsh chemicals, all Ecoegg products are produced in the UK and even come with a ten year guarantee.
Living Naturally Soapnuts are the dried shells or husks from the soapberry. These amazing little berry shells contain soap (saponin) which we can use to clean not only clothes but vegetables, kitchens, pets and much more too! The products are a completely natural alternative to harsh detergents. Save the money and look after the environment with every load.
Greenfrog are another company that harness the gentle cleaning power of soapnuts. Bottled with delicate essential oils for use in a range of truly ecological home cleaning products.
From the start, we always believed it was possible to have effective, natural cleaning products that are safe and that don't cost the earth, five years on, we are just as sure. Now that Spring has sprung, it’s the perfect time to give any of these UK products a try.
