4 easy and sustainable swaps to protect our waterways

4 easy and sustainable swaps to protect our waterways

Every day, our oceans are filled with hazardous chemicals that kill marine life and pollute our planet. In fact, according to the Environment Agency, 55% of UK river bodies and 73% of lakes fail the current standards for good ecological status, and there are an estimated 400 dead zones across the world’s oceans. In the UK, barely a week goes by without another horror story in the news about unacceptable sewage in public waterways.

The cleaning products used in our homes are a significant contributor to marine pollution, as they contain a concoction of hazardous chemicals, such as phosphate, ammonia and chlorine, all of which can cause serious harm to marine animals and plants once it goes down our drains.

Our aim at Clean Living is to help consumers to make more conscious and positive choices in how they clean their homes, making their living spaces and the natural world more healthy.

Here are 4 easy, sustainable ‘swaps’ from our product range to make a positive difference to our waterways and marine life.
