Comet chooses Bio-D as ethical partner in unique initiative

Leading electrical retailer Comet has teamed up with UK ethical business Bio-D to sell ethical laundry products in all its stores.

The initiative sees Bio-D’s environmentally responsible, hypoallergenic and chemical free Laundry Liquid and concentrated Lavender Fabric Conditioner on sale alongside washing machines and washer dryers in 250 stores throughout the UK.

Commenting on the launch, Comet’s Assistant Buyer for Home Appliance Essentials Robert Macpherson-Smith said; “As an increasing number of washing machine purchase decisions are based on energy efficiency grades and environmental concerns, it makes sense to offer consumers a laundry brand that respects the environment too.”

Of the deal, Bio-D’s Managing Director Lloyd Atkin said; “We applaud Comet’s thinking and look forward to extending distribution of Bio-D’s best selling laundry lines both into Comet’s stores and online.”

Robert continued; “We selected Bio-D because we identified with the company’s ethos and we know that the fact that they are UK made is important to our customers.”

The new lines are in store and online now.  The RSP of the 1 litre Laundry Liquid is £4.99 and the 1 litre Lavender Fabric Conditioner is £3.99, but both are on offer for £6.00 when bought with a washer or washer/dryer.

Bio-D heads to Natural and Organic Products Europe to launch new ethical cleaning products

Here at Bio-D, the new management team of Sara Holtby and Lloyd Atkin is eagerly anticipating the launch of two new products at the Natural and Organic Products Europe Show next month (3-4th April).

We are a Hull based environmentally responsible, ethically sound and hypoallergenic laundry and cleaning products business and have chosen to exhibit at the Olympia show for the first time to launch our new products and to showcase our range of exclusively UK manufactured natural and safe cleaning products that don’t cost the earth.

The new products, the first to be developed by the new team, are;

A one litre Concentrated Lavender Fabric Conditioner  that is an effective, hypoallergenic conditioner fragranced with natural lavender oil that leaves clothes soft and delicately scented and a one litre Disinfectant that has been developed to satisfy consumer demand for a smaller, more convenient size of Bio-D’s best selling 5 litre general purpose disinfectant.

We are very proud that all of our products are regularly allergy tested by an independent expert.  Products contain no petrochemicals, enzymes or animal by-products, packaging is recyclable and manufactured to contain effective levels of recycled material and, wherever possible, raw materials are from sustainable sources.  Neither products nor raw materials have been tested on animals and products are approved by BUAV and The Vegan Society.

We would love to see you at the show – check us out on stand 2023 – but if you can’t make it, you can find our products in leading independent health food shops and Oxfam shops nationwide.  Please join our quest to make a cleaner future.
