A few months ago, I was asked if I'd like to sign up to become an "Agent of Change" for Ecover to help spread the word about their eco-friendly household cleaning products by handing out samples and money-off vouchers to my friends. Well, that was a bit of a no-brainer - of course I did !
As you can see from the picture, they sent through a whole box full of samples, money-off vouchers, brochures and rather funky Mona Lisa postcards to hand out. I was very popular at the school gates for a while, I can tell you !
But I also received a bottle to try for myself so we've been putting it through its paces in the Madhouse kitchen. Well, first of all, I absolutely love the fragrance. It's fruity, uplifting and perfect for some Feel-Good Cleaning, which is what Ecover are promoting at the moment, as I told you in this blogpost here.
The washing-up liquid is thick and not overly runny, like some of the cheaper brands. It doesn't create a huge amount of bubbles but it's still effective at cutting through grease and grime on plates, pots and pans, without drying your hands out. When I use it, I don't have to keep reapplying washing up liquid to the sponge for it to keep cleaning effectively, which means a bottle lasts for a long time.
But it's also gentle, on both your skin and the planet. Ecover explain : "All of our washing up liquids are GHI Approved and carry the Sensitive Skin logo. Made from plant-based ingredients, Ecover washing up liquids leave no unnecessary chemical residue; what gets washed away biodegrades quickly and completely with minimum impact on nature , and you can even use the leftover grey water to water your plants. Kind to both your skin and the environment, our bottles are 100% recyclable and made from 100% Plant-astic plant-based plastics."
