Prepping this price comparison was a bit of an eye opener to be honest. It’s about 2.5 years since I bought any cleaning products from a supermarket and I didn’t realise how cheap they were.
If you were to look solely at price for these products I could understand why someone would think that sticking with the ‘regular’ products over the eco ones was better for them.
But I will still argue the point:
- All of the eco products I compared will last almost twice as long as the non-eco counterparts. Some may last 3-4 times longer (the washing up brushes/scrapers etc). This would mean then that comparatively, there isn’t a great difference in price.
- If you were to buy the non-eco products in these comparisons, guestimating that they last one month each, you will have 7-8 pieces of plastic EACH MONTH, just from washing up!
Let’s take a look at the figures:
For me it is a no brainer. I totally get that everyone has a budget and it may not stretch to some of these items but, if you can switch the ones that are within budget, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how well they work and how long they last.
