As Earth Day approaches (22nd April), we’re trying to encourage as many people as possible to make a green pledge to help protect our fragile earth.
For over 40 years, Earth Day has inspired and mobilised individuals and organisations worldwide to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability and this year, the team at Bio-D are helping to spread the message by encouraging people to pledge their support on facebook and twitter via www.earthday.org.
There are lots of small things that people can to help protect the environment. Many people aren’t aware that they can make a real difference just by changing to an environmentally responsible wash powder or liquid as the more biodegradable the product is, the less energy and water is needed to dilute the waste water to a level at which it is safe to return to the water system.
An article in Green Health Watch magazine in 2009 reported that the waste water from an average wash using conventional laundry products needs 10,000 – 12,000 litres to make it safe, whereas a green product like Bio-D needs as little as 4,000 litres.
We’ve pledged to support the earth by making natural, biodegradable, hypoallergenic cleaning products that are safe to use and have minimal environmental impact – what will you pledge?
