I never checked the contents outside the home cleaning liquids I was using. It’s interesting to note that most of the branded chemical cleaners which we use in house doesn’t specify the quantity of each of the contents on label.
Some brands may be safe and taking safeguards as part of Sustainable Development Goals. That’s great. For rest, what we buy does it truly reflect the real cost- before and after. Real cost when we buy it but before we use it- in terms of the impact it has already had on people and planet and real cost after – on these chemicals going back in water bodies.
It’s not just about these cleaners but almost everything we consume. I have specifically mentioned cleaners here in context of waste reduction which can be done at individual level. Let me share my experience and help you understand BIO-ENZYME & how it can contribute to reduce waste.
Sizeable portion of the bin includes peels of fruits and vegetables which is processed in our houses to prepare meals. Some peels are not edible and rest we are mostly not used to consuming.
BIO-ENZYMES helps reduce the food waste in terms of the peels esp Citrus Fruits which can be converted to cleaners at home by doing one time simple step and 2 minutes of your time per week post that.

Instead of composting, you can put the remains of fruits and vegetables which we don’t consume into one another level of use as bio enzyme before we compost it.
Save those peels going in bin and put them in any plastic container ( including soft drink bottles-reuse plastic waste as well) with water and jaggery in ratio of 3: 10 :1. Wait for 90 days with initial 30 seconds check everyday by opening the bottle cap to release the gas formation which happens in this mixture.

So do you have 2 minutes in a week to contribute to waste reduction ?
