Are You a Green Goddess? Win Ecover Products! #GreenCanClean - ENDED

How 'green' are you?  Whilst not everyone wants to install solar panels or turbines, give up flying and driving, become vegetarian or vegan, and start campaigning on green issues, there are two easy things everyone can do to help improve the global environmental crisis.  The first of these is to follow the 'reduce, re-use, recycle' message as closely as we possibly can; the second is to use 'green', environmentally-friendly products in the home.


Every time you wash your hands, do the washing up, or turn the washing machine on, you are potentially washing harmful substances into the environment.  With Ecover products, you can seriously reduce that footprint, without compromising on performance.  So we can all be Green Goddesses!  (Remember her from '80s breakfast TV?)


We have used Ecover products for years, and love them, finding their washing up liquid one of the best on the market already.   We choose not to have a dishwasher so do all our dishes by hand, and often the morning dishes have to wait till evening to be dealt with*, so there are dried on bits and all sorts.  The new formulation cuts through all this grease and grime amazingly well, smells great, and lasts for ages.

(*Not slovenly, just busy - honest!)

Ecover's new and improved washing-up liquid really does prove that green can clean just as well as, if not better than, the leading brands.  With 20% more plant-based content making a 99.8% plant-based content, the new and improved Washing-up liquid offers a fast and powerful clean, without compromising on care for the planet.  The new formulation even washes up to 40% more plates!*

Tom Domen, Innovation Manager for Ecover says:

"Ecover has been on a journey to not only make products even less harmful to the environment, but to ensure they match the performance of conventional cleaners, which is good for both our customers and the planet. Going forward we’ continue to look to nature to create the ecologically powerful cleaning products for the home and for busy lives. It’s our commitment to lessening the burden on the earth’s resources."

By harnessing incredible technologies inspired by nature, Ecover’s new product formulation proves without doubt that green can clean.  It works just as well as conventional cleaners, cutting through grease and grime to leave dishes sparkling clean, time after time.  The formula is also skin-friendly and suitable for those with sensitive skin.

You see, Ecover aren't interested in just being 'less bad' than conventional formulas, they want to make the best green cleaning products around, and continually strive to find new ways to impact the future of our planet.  Firstly, they are passionate about using sustainable natural ingredients to create effective products that have the lowest possible toxicity and the fastest biodegradability.  But beyond that they have invested in Plantplastic®, a 100% renewable, reusable and recyclable plastic made from a combination of sugar cane and post-consumer recycled plastic.  Now all of their bottles are made from this amazing new plastic.

Ecover Washing-up Liquid is available in four fragrances: Lemon & Aloe Vera, Camomile & Marigold, Pomegranate & Lime and Grapefruit & Green Tea, RRP £1.60 for 500ml, £2.40 for 1 litre.  It is available from stores including Tesco, Sainsburys, Co-Op and Waitrose, and online from Ocado and via www.ecoverdirect.com.

If you would like to become a green goddess, but maybe without the emerald velour tracksuit, just enter via the Rafflecopter below.  The winner will receive an Ecover power pack, which includes the new formula washing up liquid and a host of other Ecover products.
