Smarter home care habits for a healthier planet

The issue

From the products we choose to the way that we use them, our home care habits can have a negative impact on the planet. But smart changes in our daily routines and living habits can make a big difference.

What can we do about it?

Did you know that a dishwasher uses 85% less water than washing by hand? And smart buying can make a difference too. For example, choosing Persil Small & Mighty Bio Eco Packs can reduce your detergent plastic use by 78%.

Our Cleanipedia platform shares lots of easy and practical tips like this to help make cleaning, washing and everyday home organisation more sustainable. Whether you want to reduce waste, tackle toxic ingredients or be more responsible about recycling, we can help.

Get inspired to make small changes that count. Read our guides on cleaning your home eco-consciously, improving indoor air quality, upcycling unwanted items and low-waste living.
