I haven’t reviewed any home office products recently – mainly because I have been out of of the office far too much running training course and networking. However I have a day at home to write and catch up with clients and blog posts today, so thought I’d review a new product from Ecover and let you know about a great discount on eco friendly office supplies.
I’ve written about Ecover before: their PR company sent me a trug full of goodies to compare to their chemical counterparts. Well, I haven’t been sent a whole trug full this time: in fact the package they sent through was surprisingly compact – but that’s the whole point of their new concentrated laundry liquids. Because the liquid is concentrated it takes 54% less packaging than the regular Ecover laundry liquid. This has follow on benefits too as it takes fewer lorries to deliver the goods. I’ve tried the liquid on the last few washes and it is great. I think it smells better than the regular Ecover laundry liquid and is certainly as effective at getting clothes clean. My only issue is that I need to focus more on using the right amount – no more adding a quick slug and hoping! It is only available at Waitrose and Ocado right now, but will certainly make your shopping bag lighter if you can get hold of it.
