Yonder celebrates Organic September
Each September, the Soil Association campaigns to promote the benefits of choosing organic products, which has become increasingly important in a world challenged by climate change, diet-related illness and a decline in wildlife. Throughout Organic September, we’re reminded that making the right choices about what we buy can help support biodiversity and wildlife, combat climate change and reduce exposure to pesticides. That’s why here at Yonder we offer organic products and use organic ingredients in as many of our formulas as possible, and we’re constantly working on ways that we can include more.
Organic laundry solution
One product that we’re proud to offer for its organic credentials is our Soap Nuts. Unlike traditional laundry detergent, which is often a cocktail of harmful chemicals, Soap Nuts are a natural, organic product which grow in tropical climates on the trees of the Sapindus genus. They have been used for thousands of years as a natural washing detergent and, as well as being gentle on skin and clothes, they are hypoallergenic and biodegradable, and each dose is reusable up to four times.
Solve drain blockages naturally
Blocked drains are a nuisance and many of the unblocking solutions available tend to be an ineffective concoction of chemicals, which pollute the water system and put aquatic life at risk. Here at Yonder, we have a natural maintenance solution in the form of our Enzymatic Drain Cleaning Sticks. The sticks are formed of powerful natural bacteria and enzymes, which break down organic matter, preventing blockages occurring and bad odors. Just pop one of the sticks through the plug hole once a month to ensure that no nasty blockages build up.
Effective limescale deterrent
It’s an unfortunate fact that where there is water, limescale is bound to build up and, while many people around the world rely on limescale removers to combat this, many of these chemical-based solutions pollute the waterways, causing issues for agriculture and wildlife. For washing machines and dishwashers, Yonder’s Magnoball uses magnetic power to crystalize calcium particles, helping to prevent limescale building up. It works as an alternative to single-use water softener tablets and should limit the need for machine repairs due to limescale-related malfunctions.
So, this Organic September, why not see what changes you can make in your everyday life to work towards a cleaner, greener planet? See the Soil Association website for even more inspiration.
