After undergoing rigorous testing, the brand – which is the UK’s leading manufacturer of environmentally responsible, ethically sound, vegan cleaning products – received full marks for its eco credentials for both the Dishwasher Tablets’ ingredients and packaging.
Of all the Dishwasher Tablets tested, the brand was the only one to win an Eco Buy award, with competitor products tested from Ecover, Smol, Splosh, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Tesco.
Lloyd Atkin, managing director at Bio-D, said: “Having the Which? Eco Buy endorsement not only verifies the efficacy of our Dishwasher Tablets, it also highlights the environmental standards that are part of who we are as a brand.
“Having this highlighted gives shoppers the confidence to know that what they are buying not only works, but it’s doing good too.”
The Dishwasher Tablets form part of Bio-D’s zero-waste product range and utilise 100% recyclable cardboard packaging and biodegradable water-soluble wrappers.
Each tablet is also just 12g in size, meaning carbon emission savings in both production and transport compared to traditional 20g alternatives, which often use filler products to bulk out tablets. For every five trucks of 20g tablets, Bio-D only need three, which means it can fit 40% more boxes into transportation lorries compared to other average sized offerings.
The Which? Eco Buy endorsement recognises products that perform well under its thorough testing standards whilst also scoring top marks top marks for its sustainability performance.
Which? is the UK’s largest consumer organisation and has over 1.3 million members and supporters. Testing products that shoppers want to know about, including top sellers and ones with new and innovative features, 73% of people agree that a Which? endorsement logo is likely to influence the product or service they choose.
