Pastel-coloured aluminium bottles of cleaning products can be purchased once and reused endlessly with UK startup Spruce’s plastic-free dehydrated refills.
Spruce offers a more sustainable way of repurchasing its multi-purpose cleaning or bathroom spray. The startup has been shortlisted for sustainable design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020.
The first purchase set comes with what Spruce calls an eternity bottle made of metal, and a trigger spray pump. Customers can then continue to use it with Spruce’s plastic-free refills, saving them from continual purchases of cleaning products in plastic containers.
Refills arrive in sachets made of compostable material. To refill the bottle, the sachet contents are emptied into the bottle and mixed with tap water to create 500 millilitres of cleaning liquid. Spruce offers one-off refill
