Reuse vs Single-use

Reuse vs Single-use

limpieza y desinfeccion

Most, think that single-use is just plastic, but remember it means use it and through it and it can be made of any material, paper, plastic, glass, cotton, canvas…

Reuse

Sostenibilidad, ecología, evitar desperdicio, alimentación sostenible, limpieza sostenible, productos de limpieza en el hogar, marketing, zero rsiduo

Reuse has more benefits and less costs than single-use

We have tones of “eco” waste from single-use, plus the resources need to produce them but we only pay attention, or better say, we starting to pay attention only to plastic

Reuse avoids the need for resource extraction and reduces energy also the use them to the manufacturing of new products and recycling. In addition, it can incentivise a shift toward more conscious consumption and reshape our relationship to products.

1 reusable bottle of HPDE has 65% less emissions than single use PET and HDPE plastic bottles

Reuse is clearly the best choice to single-use. This is applied to companies as an individual. Think global and act local

  1. Reuse saves money 
  2. Washing costs for reusables are minimal or non-existent
  3. Reuse increases satisfaction 
  4. Reuse builds brand loyalty
  5. Reuse improve behaviours
  6. Reuse saves communities money
  7. Reuse creates new opportunities

1. Reuse save money.

Same as you do not go everywhere by taxi. You use your car, bike or public transport because at the end you will spend more money. Single-use increase all costs. It has to be produced individually, transported, used only once, disposed and finally recycled using more resources or trying to give them.

 

Switching to a reusable bottle, swab, bag… means save €€€ transformed in less energy and less resources need it what at the end make spend less money

Eco save money
WASH SAVE MONEY

2. Washing reusables costs are minimal or non-existent

Here is the same as your underwear. You do not buy a new underwear every day, you wash your own and reuse them. So, if we do it with the underwear, why not do it most of the things we use daily?

3. Reuse increases satisfaction.

Each day more people are getting conscious about being eco-friendly and sustainability and at the same time companies are adapting them strategy to get customers

As an example, customers who participated in a Starbucks reusable cup pilot project consistently stated that they preferred reusable cups. Eighty-two percent of the Starbucks customers surveyed liked the idea of reusable cups, and when asked what they liked most about them, 59% noted the environmental benefits. 

4. Reuse builds brand loyalty.

Companies with environmental leadership looking at action and not reaction are becoming more appreciated and gaining value.

While governments and companies are focusing on separating and recycling, they are still identified as top polluters and investing in refillable and reusable solutions are more attractive

 

Reusable toothbrush, deodorants, cleaning sprayers are only some of the examples to be mentioned

Brands that lead on switching to reuse are capitalizing on the increasing consumer support for moving away not only from plastic but from all single-use. In an August 2019 survey, 71% of 2,000 U.K. shoppers polled said they would buy food from a refill store if the option were available.

REUSSE bring loyalty

5. Reuse improve behaviours

Everything is a matter of behaviours few years ago marketing convinced us that use, waste and buy was the way and we adapted the single-use behaviours.

 

People that adapt again the reuse behaviour is going to look for more ways to reuse and of course if people does it the individual will do it at least to not be pointed

6. Reuse saves communities money

In 2020, the total waste generated in the EU by all economic activities and households amounted to 2.151 million tonnes or 4.808 kg per capita. Now consider the cost of managing all this waste

Single-use disposables add costs to businesses to buy single-use products and pay for waste hauling.

City governments add costs for managing the waste.

Reuse stops waste before it starts and reduces costs for businesses and local governments to manage all the waste. Reusables cut the number of single-use items that end up in the waste management system. The number of times a reusable product is used dictates the amount of waste reduced. 

6. Reuse create opportunities

Reuse create opportunities

Everyday new start-ups, projects and actions are created to improve reuse and sustainability

WeTKare is here with this great gol!!!

WeTKare and Recycled Symbols

Recycling symbols

limpieza y desinfeccion

With the right information you have the power to choose

There are labels everywhere, and these labels are most of the time very confusing, even though they are designed to make our life easier. Recycling labels are one of those labels.

Because We TaKe care this or guide

Sostenibilidad, ecología, evitar desperdicio, alimentación sostenible, limpieza sostenible, productos de limpieza en el hogar, marketing, zero rsiduo

Green recycle dot

Green Recycle dot

This only means that the producer has made “a financial contribution” towards the recovery and recycling of packaging. Well done? Well this is better than nothing.. But maybe it should be considered a recycling symbol as it does not add much.

Monbius loop

The monius loop recycle

Packaging is posible to be recycled but this symbol does not make it clear enough on how to recycle it or even if they mention it on the product, it is not outlined clearly. 

The numbers 1 to 7 used inside the Mobius Loop, refers the resin code of the type of plastic used

Do not recycle

Dont-Recycle

Here the information is quit clear. In most cases, plastics are not that easily recycled and most likely won’t be accepted by most recycling facilities.

Try to avoid products with this symbol, and if you have to use the product, make sure to put it in the trash.

Rinse Recycle

Rinse-Recycle

You can recycle but rinse the product before you through it away to avoid, left overs can contaminate other materials

Lid on Recycle

Lid-On-recycle

You will find this symbol when the the item or plastic is to small (under 40mm) and the machinery can not process it. just put it back or into a bottle t make it easier

Cap on - Remove sleeve

Cap-On-and-Remove-Sleeve

This appears when you need to separate the components

PLASTIC RECYCLING NUMBERS:

We are sure you have seen these many times.

Tip of the day!!The lower number means the material is more likely to be accepted for recycling.

Please try avoid the number 7

PET

Recycle 1

In appearance, it is clear and transparent, and also a bit flexible. Yet, it is still strong and will not tear easily. It is lightweight and can be easily shaped when melted .

It’s frequently used for water bottles, shampoo containers, soda bottles and cloth.

Good for recycling but not for refill and reuse

HDPE

one of the most versatile plastic materials. strong, lightweight and easy to shape.

It is used in a variety of applications: plastic bottles, milk jugs, shampoo bottles, bleach bottles, cutting boards, and piping.

This type of plastic can be reused and recycled again and again, making it an efficient, and long-lasting product with endless applications.

PVC

recycle 3

It is a high strength plastic widely used in pipes, medical devices, wire, cable insulation, crystal or cling wrap, cooking oil bottles and some clear food packaging.

It is not accepted for recycling and needs to go in the landfill cart

Due to the fact that several harmful chemicals are produced in the manufacturing or disposal of this type of plastic, it can lead to health risks and environmental issues. 

Keep it away from heat and do not use it to store food. It has a strong potential to turn into microplastics.

 

LDPE

recycle 4

Very light It’s used to make grocery bags

Sometimes bags are labeled with number 2 and or 4, but the problem here is that bags are usually so light that they get caught in recycling machinery, which can cause severe problems.

It is recommended to take them to a drop off station

PP

It is hard and has a high melting point, so it’s often chosen for containers that will hold hot liquid.

Easily Found in: Some yogurt containers, syrup and medicine bottles, caps, straws

But still not really accepted for recycling. Not even 1% of it worldwide is recycled.. So when you dispose of it, make sure to clean it properly and to get rid of any potential food in it as it will then become even more difficult to be recycled.

PS

recycle 6

Rigid or foam products

Mostly Found in disposable plates and cups, meat trays, egg cartons, carry-out containers, aspirin bottles, compact disc cases

Not many recycling programs will accept it, although it is suitable for reuse. It is high risk to end up as microplastics.

Others

Here there are very few chances to be recycled

Found in: Three- and five-gallon water bottles, bullet-proof materials, sunglasses, DVDs, iPod and computer cases, signs and displays, certain food containers, nylon

Remember

– Recycling symbols are only guidelines. You need to still check with your local waste collection service to make sure what type of waste is accepted.

– Plastic can last over 500 years before it come back tot he landfill

– Black plastics are notoriously hard.

Now you know a bit more about symbols, so each time that you buy something, think about the resources that are needed to produce it and how these resources can be recycled.  Fortunately, now you already know the inconvenience of single-use products.

So basically being sustainable is always the best recycling that you can do. 

WeTKare is committed to sustainability and minimizing packaging and transport waste as much as possible.

Cleaning at home

Cleaning at home, How many products do you use?

limpieza y desinfeccion

How many cleaning products do you use at home? How many pollute and can be very harmful to your health, children and pets?

Productos de limpieza en el hogar WeTKare

Sostenibilidad, ecología, evitar desperdicio, alimentación sostenible, limpieza sostenible, productos de limpieza en el hogar, marketing, zero rsiduo

Cleanliness is critical, and marketing takes advantage of it

We use an average of five cleaners per household (kitchen, bathroom, furniture, glass, floor). This is five plastic bottles and almost 5L of water that need to be transported. 5 chemicals, which clean your house and dirty the water, the earth and you have to have to protect your health (more if you suffer from allergies) in addition to protecting the most vulnerable (children and pets) from possible harmful effects. Easy access to these products

But what’s behind it?

We have been indoctrinated that we need specific cleaning products for each place and furniture and that everythingis also disinfected, as it was necessary to disinfect daily. The truth is that disinfectants are biocides that eliminate all kinds of life, and this causes problems due to excessive cleaning and other negative effects.

Every day more companies like WeTKare are committed to improving consumption habits and today we are going to see with perspective the importance of minimizing waste, eliminating chemicals and reducing water waste and CO2 emissions, and being a little more sustainable

Being sustainable, that buzzword, is fundamental since ecology alone is insufficient and here WeTKare is one of those companies that looks beyond and together with it we will show the importanceof taking into account the cost behind each product, and that this is not only economic;  water, transport, production of packaginge, production of the product and a long etc are present.

1. Excessive cleaning

In 1980, British epidemiologist David Strachanobserved that, in the dirtiest, most polluted and least wealthy cities of East Germany, children had much lower rates of hay fever and asthma than in the cleaner and wealthier cities of West Germany with their less social lifestyle with other children.

Other doctors have since found that, in general, people in wealthy, more sanitized nations have much higher rates of asthma and allergies than those in the developing world. And while there might be other variants here, it was observed that people who move from a developing country to a richer one  are more likely to develop these diseases than people who remain in their home country.

Productos de limpieza en el hogar WeTKare

This is why more and more doctors have hypothesized that we live in a modern, ultra-sanitized world in which too much cleanliness may be causing us to develop allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases, and other autoimmune disorders.

Lack of exposure to bacteria, viruses, and allergens impedes the normal development of the immune system, which ultimately increases the possibility of disorders within this system in the future. This is called the hygiene hypothesis.

Our immune system needs education, just like any other organ. Erika von Mutius, a pediatric allergist at the University of Munich suggests that early exposure to microbes helps in educating a baby’s developing immune system. Without this education, your immune system may be more likely to attack the wrong target, in the case of autoimmune diseases.

Here it is very important to differentiate.  Excessive cleaning is not related to not getting vaccinated and of course basic cleaning practices (Infrastructure, water and garbage treatment, washing hands …) are necessary and avoid a large number of diseases

True, it is still not fully understood how the immune system develops as we grow, but the idea is that exposure is really necessary for it to develop properly.

At the moment, the hygiene hypothesis remains a hypothesis: and no scientist believes it can explain all cases of allergies and asthma, but the interactions between a person’s environment and genes contribute to rates of autoimmune diseases.

None of this means you should stop cleaning your house or washing, or start drinking potentially contaminated water. And if you learn to clean dirt and sanitize without removing everything with mostly chemical biocides , which can be harmful to health.

2. The cost of cleaning products

We are going to include cleaning products in 5 broad categories and make a quick analysis of each one:

- Non-ecological cleaning products.

Mostly or all, made of very aggressive and toxic chemicals. They clean, although they usually involve a high price, due to the environmental and health impact they can cause due to chemical spills, poisonings and allergic recessions.

They are bottled in single-use plastics (producing each of these bottles involves an average of 3 – 4L of water) and have a formula composed of 10% chemicals and 90% water.

Productos de limpieza en el hogar WeTKare

Its use is quite limited and after pouring the toxic content we throw away the plastic bottle to buy a new one.

Summary: We clean with a cleaner that contaminates and may affect our health and the environment. We waste water to produce each bottle and once finished we dry rivers and springs to fill it with water and transport it. We emit tons of CO2 in producing bottles and packaging and transporting water, when water is transported on its own…

Do you consider it efficient?

- Standard organic products

These products differ from the previous ones in that their components are less polluting.

However, they are still bottled in single-use plastic bottles and emit large amounts of CO2 in addition to being a strong waste of water as we saw earlier. And they have the same proportion 10% cleaning product and 90% water

- Organic products in bulk

Here we begin to see some change. The vast majority are organic products and there may be times when they are not.

They are transported in large quantities, (from about 5L) still with the same proportion (10-90%), to a point of sale, to which each customer must go with their bottle to fill with the product you need.

This can mean enormous savings in plastic bottles and other materials however there is still a large amount of CO2 emissions to transport those drums in addition to the aforementioned waste of water.

Productos de limpieza monodosis

- Single-dose organic products

This model is gaining more followers every day. In this case, 90% of water is eliminated and the customer acquires only 10% of cleaning product  in pill or liquid.

Many of these products are eco-friendly, although there may be exceptions. Here the great savings they represent in the production of single-use plastic bottles, reduction of CO2 emissions and water waste stand out.

However, what is not taken into account is the cost of producing each of the wrappers of each dose and the cost of producing each, which are quite high. And here we talk about the economic cost, energy cost and production cost (example: necessary machinery)

- Homemade cleaning products

These products are usually the most environmentally friendly as they are made mainly from 100% natural products; Vinegar, baking soda, lemon, soda, natural oils, plants…

But what is the cost in producing each of these components? What is the cost of producing the packaging of each? Do we take advantage of 100%?

3. Economic cost

As we saw above the costs behind each cleaning product, now we will see that economic expense that the client perceives.

How do you go to work each day? If you go by public transport, do you pay for your individual ticket every day? Or do you prefer to pay a monthly pass, trimestral.. ?

Most of us who use public transport use a pass, for the simple fact that paying individual tickets in the medium and long term is a much greater expense. The same happens with the car versus moving daily by taxi.

Supermarkets and most stores offer cleaning products for an average (according to brands and characteristics) of € 1 up to € 4 and € 5. We also have the products that are purchased online mostly taking advantage of the single-dose model with an average of € 1.50 doses.

We will take a global average price of € 2.5 per cleaning product. If at home you use, as we indicated at the beginning, about five products (Kitchen, bathroom, furniture, glass and floor) we will have an average expense of € 12.5. Not to mention specific products for types of wood, furniture, floors, bleach, etc.

How much do you think you spend on cleaning products?

Conclusion

n 2019 in Spain, only in domestic cleaning products, the expenditure was 225 million euros and since 2020 its consumption increased more than 20% making each citizen spend more than € 90 on cleaning products in a single year.

We like to enjoy a clean home and be able to visit places where we are comfortable.  As we have seen and know the cleanliness, it is fundamental, without a doubt and at the same time we have to take into account that this cleaning respects our health and the environment.

Each cleaning product has some pros and cons but we have in our hand the possibility of choosing those more respectful and that best suit us.

WeTKare are cleaning products with such a concentrated formula, that the five cleaning products mentioned (kitchen, bathroom, furniture, glass and floors) and some more 😉 they have managed to agglutinate them in only two bottles, with an easy duration of one year. WeTKare Multi-surfaces offers between 50 and 100  cleaning sprayers, just dilute the right dose in each of its  aluminum sprayers, add water and clean normally. Its floor cleaner with 250ml provides up to 250 buckets of water. It’s like having bulk cleaning at home in the minimum space.

A simple gesture that benefits us all such as avoiding food waste.

Limpieza, desinfección o ambas

Limpieza, desinfección o ambas

Malos hábitos de limpieza, miedo y desconocimiento hacen que la limpieza ensucie más que limpie y la pandemia empeoro eso factores. Sobre todo un exceso de uso de desinfectantes

limpieza, desinfección o ambas

El covid provoco que muchas personas se hayan vuelto misofóbicas (odio y/o temor exagerado a los microbios) que junto a una falta de conocimiento y una información masiva y muchas veces inconclusa provocan un grave impacto a nuestro alrededor

Cualquier buscador en internet nos dará cientos de artículos de cómo desinfectar… ¿pero hasta que punto es necesario?

José Luis Jiménez  experto en aerosoles y Catedrático en Química y Ciencias Medioambientales en la Universidad de Colorado, EE.UU, en agosto del 2021 con la pandemia aun reciente, participo en un estudio publicado en Science en el que se reafirmar que el virus  SARS-CoV-2 se propaga y contagia principalmente al inhalar aerosoles cargados con partículas virales que pueden acumularse y permanecer en el aire varias horas e insiste en desterrar mitos, como que el virus se transmite por contagio en superficies.

limpieza, desinfección o ambas

¿Entonces? ¿Demos desinfectar o basta con limpiar?

Vayamos por partes ¿Cuál es la diferencia?

Limpiar, consiste en eliminar manchas, grasa, polvo, restos de orín, vómitos, vino, moho… en definitiva suciedad y de este modo, higienizar respetando la superficie a limpiar, microorganismos no nocivos y la salud de todos (humanos, animales, insectos, plantas…)

Desinfectar, esto es más complejo ya que podemos hablar de desinfección y propiedades desinfectantes.

  • Desinfecion: Biocidas que eliminan Cloro, alcohol isopropílico, etanol, peróxido de hidrógenoy compuestos de amonio cuaternario son los desinfectantes más usados.

Necesarios en lugares que por sus condiciones y riesgos, desinfectar es fundamental y necesario, aunque su frecuencia puede variar. Hospitales, hotels, edificios públicos…

La forma en que se aplican también es importante, además de la dosificación hay que tener en cuenta el tiempo necesario para que sean efectivos. Las soluciones con cloro deben actuar de uno a diez minutos y las soluciones a base de alcohol no hay que retirarlas, sino que se evaporan

Muchas veces no se espera el tiempo indicado, porque puede dañar la superficie o por prisa. Utilizamos más desinfectantes de lo necesario, mal e incrementamos el daño que ocasionan

Los desinfectantes matan virus y bacterias, pero al dejar superficies estériles lo primero en aparecer son los cuerpos nocivos y sin nada que los combata irán directos a nosotros. Además, todos los desinfectantes se caracterizan por una elevada toxicidad la cual es más nociva que beneficiosa para nuestra salud.

  • Propiedades desinfectantes: Vinagre y productos elaborados con plantas. Si bien son grandes aliados en la limpieza gracias a sus características. Sin embargo sus características menos agresivas los hacen mas ineficientes y en ocasiones contraproducentes ya que pueden dejar residuos. Un biocida debe eliminar absolutamente todo dejando la superficie completamente inerte.

Si, Hay muchos estudios que indican que el vinagre es un desinfectante. Estos estudios también dicen que necesita actuar más de 30 minutos. Esta es una de las razones por las que su uso es negativo en zonas con alto riesgo de contaminación como la cocina.

Alternativas

No existe un producto mágico si es ecológico no desinfecta o no lo hace del todo mas bien higieniza y si desinfecta no es ecológico. Lo que si podemos hacer es complementar cuando sea necesario.

Limpieza diaria

Una limpieza diaria, o al menos frecuente es necesaria y beneficiosa para evitar la proliferación de gérmenes nocivos y vivir en espacios salubres

Hay que seguir las instrucciones. Es decir, no vale con echar o pulverizar sobre una superficie y luego retirarlo con una esponja o paño, sino que hay que dejarlo actuar el tiempo indicado.

Por tanto, si abusas del desinfectante o usas alguno menos tiempo del debido, no estás limpiando las superficies de virus y bacterias y si estas perjudicando tu salud y dañando el medio ambiente

Por tanto no es necesario desinfectar a diario y, de hecho, no es nada recomendable.

Como vimos anteriormente los desinfectantes destruyen todo, y además el uso excesivo puede aumentar el riesgo de resistencia de bacterias y virus, como sucede con los fármacos antibióticos a la hora de combatir una enfermedad. Si hablamos de los limpiadores con propiedades desinfectantes necesitas un elevado tiempo de actuación y por tanto pierden eficiencia junto a otros posibles inconvenientes (residuos, olores…)

Aquí WeTKare permite una limpieza diaria eficiente respetando tu salud y sin contaminar. Puede ser combinado con desinfectantes para una limpieza más profunda cuando sea necesario. Combinar es utilizarlo a diario y en ocasiones concretas aplicar un desinfectante tras su uso

Si hablamos de un hogar, la desinfección es prácticamente innecesaria bastaría con una limpieza diaria y ventilación. A partir de aquí podemos y debemos realizar una limpieza sostenible. Limpiar y desinfectar sólo cuando sea necesario.

Enzyme´s benefits

Enzymes to clean your home and why those who have pets should know

enzymatic cleaner, claner made of enzymes

We can say that cleaning with enzymes enhanced through biotechnology is not new and that every day it gains more followers among users and professionals. They do not contain toxic products, are eco-friendly, completely environmentally friendly and biodegradable, and yet remain a great unknown to the vast majority with questions around them: What are they? How do they work?

Why didn't I know them? Are they efficient?

The simplest way to explain how they work is: These cleaning products use non-pathogenic bacteria composed of enzymes that break down dirt into small parts that convert the bacteria’s food into carbon dioxide and water, and at the same time will end bad odors. In addition, these bacteria will feed until all the dirt is broken down or until they are removed.

It is important to know that the enzymes of these cleaners are not living beings, they cannot grow and reproduce on their own. They are tools designed to be able to break down molecules.

There are several types of enzymes that are used in cleaning the most popular are:

Proteases: They break down the molecules of blood, vomit, urine, grass, egg…

Lipases: Act against oils, fats and cosmetic products

Amylases: Break down carbohydrate and starch molecules

WeTKare has been able to take advantage of the cleansing, degreasing and sanitizing power of enzymes and has combined the three types to be as efficient as possible against all types of dirt and stains.

That is why enzymatic cleaners are accompanied by numerous benefits:

  • They are environmentally friendly and do not pollute
  • They are safer for health, as they do not have aggressive chemicals and
  • Do not emit harmful gases (VOCs: Volatile Organic Components)
  • As they are not toxic, they are less likely to cause irritation in the skin and respiratory tract, being a great ally for sensitive skin and lung conditions
  • Help reduce allergic reactions
  • They are very efficient against food, feces, urine, vomiting, sweat, fats.
  • Enzymes can penetrate small nooks and crannies and act to remove dirt and bad odors where chemicals would not reach.
  • The residual enzymes will continue to work up to 80 hours after application. That is, they will continue to clean and eliminate bad odors once you are finished.
  • Thanks to natural selection, non-pathogenic bacteria will displace pathogenic bacteria (causing infections and diseases) which is a health benefit.
  • They help keep the scourers useful for longer, especially if they are natural like the loofah.
  • They do not contain strong chemicals and can be used on a wider variety of surfaces without damaging them.
  • Containing no corrosive components, enzymatic cleaners can be applied on persistent dirt and left to act without fear of damaging the surface.

Thanks to their features and benefits, enzymatic cleaners have almost infinite applications, they are a great option for general surface cleaning, very efficient in cleaning bathrooms and kitchens, they do not damage and maintain the shine of parquet and marble, they are a great alternative to clean carpets and other fabrics and also eliminate the bad smell

They are increasingly valued among consumers aware of respecting nature and especially among those who have pets and are looking for products that clean, eliminate bad odors instead of covering them and of course take care of their health.

For those who still do not know it, WeTKare is the Spanish start-up that has come to stay and evolve an almost forgotten sector, such as the cleaning sector, to make it more ecological and sustainable

WeTKare wants to bet on improving consumption habits and has been able to take advantage of the full potential of enzymes in a concentrated formula that in addition to enjoying its benefits, its products minimize the use of plastic, CO2 emissions and water waste.

WeTKare with its concentrated formula gives users the option to adapt a single product for the entire cleaning instead of buying 5 (kitchen, bathroom, glass, furniture and bleach) Just dissolve the right dose in a sprayer and add tap water. It’s that easy

Its 1L Multi-Surface Cleaner  provides up to 100 cleaning sprayers allowing a bottle to clean all our blood 1 year by dissolving the corresponding dose according to the needs and  its  250 ml Floor Cleaner offers up to 250 buckets of water.

 

WeTKare, is not only cleaning but also investing; are the most economical cleaners on the market, they represent a  very considerable decrease in the manufacture, use and waste of plastics, CO2 emissions are super reduced since they do not transport water, which translates into less weight to transport and avoid drying rivers and wetlands to transport water that transports itself

WeTKare / The Reason Behind

We are WeTKare

Clean, windows cleaner, home cleaner, house cleaner, glass cleaner, eco-freindly cleaner, cleaner, office cleaner, kitchen cleaner, chipping board cleaner, pet cleaner, degreasing

fight climate change

WeTKare is the start-up that has managed to bring sustainability thanks to its concentrated formula to an almost forgotten sector: home cleaning.

 
 

The firm has taken into account both the composition of its products and its spare parts systems, including only the essentials. These decisions, in addition to respecting the environment, mean savings for the company both in packaging and transport that in the long run have an impact on a better price for the consumer.

This firm of cleaning products proposes a unique concentrated formula based on enzymes whose degreasing and sanitizing properties are enhanced thanks to biotechnology, avoiding the use of aggressive and harsh chemicals with the environment to achieve an efficient and truly sustainable cleaning at home.

In addition, these products do not emit harmful gases (0% VOC), which are present in most cleaning products, ammonia, bleach or perfumes. In the case of your

Multi-surfaces, they have even opted for a product practically free of residues and without aromas to also avoid as much as possible allergic reactions and their possible consequences

WeTKare on Spotify

A sustainable cleaning of our home is one in which products formulated from ingredients that are effective are used, avoiding causing negative impact on the environment and health.

In addition, WeTKare seeks to improve consumption habits and minimize the use of plastic and waste of water. Therefore, it proposes a better option than even cleaning with vinegar and lemon.

Although vinegar and lemon are good options for cleaning, WeTKare products have a much more sustainable production process since it requires a much lower expenditure of water.

On the other hand, although vinegar is a great disinfectant, it is also true that it leaves a strong residual odor in addition to being quite corrosive and can damage many surfaces. To this is added that it is packaged mainly in plastic bottles.

WeTKare has two products in its range: a multi-surface and a floor cleaner.

The Multi-surface is suitable for all types of space or surface, from glasses to ovens. Being a concentrated formula, you will only use the necessary dose in the sprayer, mixing it with warm water to enhance the action of the enzymes. The brand recommends using half a dose for cleaning furniture and glass, and a dose for bathrooms and kitchen, and you can increase the doses when very dirty surfaces occur. 

The bottle of the Multi-surface is 1L and each dose is 20 ml, so it can last up to a year avoiding buying more products and throwing away up to 100 bottles a year, in addition to the savings in the transport of 100 Kg of water and plastic thus reducing 90% of CO2 emissions.

WeTKare Multi-Surface
WeTKare Floor-Cleaner

In the case of  the 250 ml floor cleaner, simply apply the dose directly to the water bucket (3-5L), and you can clean all types of floors, including parquet and marble. Its formula is equally concentrated, so you will have service for up to 250 buckets of water.

New customers who purchase one of their KIT will have included WeTKare’s aluminum sprayers or diffusers, an infinitely recyclable material. Then you will only have to buy the refills that will  go in a  recycled cardboard packaging, and even reuse their own boxes that are in good condition. And they do well, why throw them away?

WeTKare Sprayers

With each WeTKare bottle you are saving money and protecting the nature around us.

WeTKare is Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly.  Neither the brand nor its suppliers test their products on animals, and it is a member of Friends For The Earth, a global community of sustainable brands that champion the circular economy with the aim of promoting environmental sustainability and green culture.

He is also a member of Plastic Pollution Coalition, is a finalist of the Beyond Plastic Awards, and is in the process of getting the Ecolabel that we already talked about here.

When a start-up or a company does things well, sooner rather than later the results end up coming. Chance is in a distant place when WeTKare is part of groups so well worked in sustainable matters and is about to receive the aforementioned awards.

You can buy the products online or contact WeTKare to find out which is your nearest store. If you are a business you can also contact them at the same address: WeTKare Store
