When you support Culture Clean, you are also supporting a better future for our planet.
What does sustainability mean? “A simple definition of sustainability is the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level. For a product to be sustainable, it must be possible to produce and/or consume it in a way that doesn’t result in harm or destruction. If the production of a product requires nonrenewable resources, damages the environment, or results in harm to individuals or society, it is unlikely to be considered sustainable.” ~ Earth 911
Here is how I make Culture Clean as sustainable as I can:
♥ Glass Bottles
Glass bottles are used to reduce plastic, hold up the integrity of the fermented product and be easily reusable or recyclable.
I have some new refillable pouches for All Purpose Spray and Mould Magic. These pouches are made in Australia from foil, so they can be reused or recycled. They are also lighter to transport and enables you to keep reusing your glass spray bottles at home.
♥ Bottle Buy Back
Bring back your glass bottles and I will give you $2 off your next bottle! I wash, sterilise and reuse them. It’s an arduous process, but every little bit helps the planet!
♥ Local, Natural Ingredients
Culture Clean is a plant-based cleaning range and many of the ingredients are grown in my garden, including this lemon verbena. I forage for the pine needles, which fall off after the black cockatoos have been at them!
♥ Traditional, Slow Production
Culture Clean is handmade in small batches in a traditional old fashioned way. Using a recipe of my grandmother’s I ferment natural ingredients. It’s a very gentle process with no industrial production required.
♥ Upcycled Packaging
You may get some very strange boxes when you get your Culture Clean order in the mail!! I upcycle everything, including these plumbing supply boxes from my husband’s business. I use shredded paper to cushion and recycled paper and newspaper to wrap.
♥ Helps Not Harms
Unlike other cleaning products, Culture Clean actively helps your health and that of your home with the good bacteria!! Each batch is hand-cultured using a traditional method and contains absolutely no toxic ingredients.
♥ Sustainable Business Practices
Sustainabilty is a way of life to me, so that naturally transfers to my businesses. All processes and practices are thoughtfully considered to have the least impact possible and to be completely ethical.
I am so thrilled that my sustainability efforts were recognised at this year’s Ausmumpreneur Awards where I received the Silver Award for Sustainability.
Thank you for supporting Culture Clean to be sustainable and low impact!
