Ecominim’s mission is to reduce waste and toxicity from our day-to-day cleaning. Ironically, as we clean, we actually dirty and contaminate the environment via the usage of common cleaning agents. Household cleaning agents are one of the biggest pollutants on the Earth. Ecominim aims to change the way people clean; by using eco-friendly detergent ingredients and encouraging everyone to help us play a part in minimizing and reducing these common pollutants by choosing products that abstain from known toxic ingredients.
How do we do it:
- We ventured onto the road less taken and diverged from the usage of SLS/SLES, which is the common surfactant used in most cleaning products. SLES often contain a compound that is known to be a possible carcinogen according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
- Our products are non-toxic to aquatic life. Instead, our products are made using the certified organic plant-derived decyl glucoside; a milder non-ionic surfactant that works as well, if not better, than its harsher counterparts. This decision is key as we need to understand what we flush down into the waterways.
- We took extra care to ensure that all our chemicals are not only safe for the environment but are gentle to your skin as well! We carefully sourced biodegradable raw materials, so that our products leave no trace and harm on aquatic beings.
- We created a community called miniMes, our Earth warriors to join us in this fight to preserve Mother Earth for our future generations, our mini-mes.
