Are Ecover’s products biodegradable?
Yes. All of our product formulations are uniquely developed to biodegrade completely—and as quickly as possible. We always think about what happens to our products and ingredients once they’re washed down your kitchen sink, shower or toilet. Usually, products are broken down by bacteria, fungi or other simple organisms. So, by definition, most chemicals are biodegradable, but some take much longer to biodegrade than others: a piece of bread will break down pretty quickly whereas a piece of plastic will take decades or more. So we also made our bottles recyclable. You’re welcome, Mother Nature.
