Earths Friend is a pioneering eco-friendly cleaning brand that was created in 1970 in a garden shed in Cardiff, Wales. The product range includes body and hair care, laundry, household cleaners, dishwashing products, and air fresheners. In trying to attract younger consumers who are starting out in their first home, they have put together a Cleaning Essentials Starter Kit. The starter box contains ten essential cleaning items:
3. Laundry tablets
4. Stain remover
5. Dishwashing tablets
6. Toilet cleaner
7. Bathroom cleaner
8. Air freshener
9. Cleaning cloth
10. Scrub brush
Each product and container is completely recyclable and made from recyclable plastics, even the cleaning cloth, and scrub brush! The Cleaning Essentials Starter Kit is boxed in recycled cardboard and contains dividers to keep all ten items neatly stored.
