A large part of the 5×4 Project is considering the overall life cycle of the building, so the lifestyle of its residents is very important if the Project is going to be successful. The personal care and cleaning products used in everyday life need to be environmentally developed, with sustainability paramount in their process.
Other things to be considered with these products are the effect they will have once they are washed down the drain, and whether the plastic that their containers are made from is recycled and recyclable!
We have contacted body-care, washing and cleaning companies, and have received support from Nature’s Organics and their Earth’s Choice range, Laundress detergents, as well as Burt’s Bees’ body care range. Whilst these fantastic companies are not the only environmentally conscious companies on the market, we thank them for their support.
