The world is drowning in single use plastic and packaging. Over 8 million tons of plastic enters our oceans every year – that’s a rubbish truck every 30 seconds. Without change, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050.
The cleaning and personal care industry contributes to this problem with billions of bottles manufactured each year filled 85-95% with water, a tiny amount of active ingredients, and then transported around the world… and discarded… Massive waste and massive emissions resulting from shipping water.
Cleanery have created affordable, easy-use, and effective, cleaning and personal care products delivered as a powder that dissolves in water at home. The initial Cleanery range includes super effective plant and mineral based surface cleaners and handwashes. They will soon have easy mix powders for body washes and shampoos (gel based products like this are a world first) and the powder based platform can extend to dish-washing liquids, window cleaners, laundry and more.
Cleanery, led by co-founder Mark Sorensen and an experienced team of scientists, engineers, designers and marketers have also created a scalable model to manufacture and sell these products – at low cost, in high volume, for mainstream consumers – and novel and exciting technology that enables a broad range of products to be produced.
Cleanery are looking for experienced investors to participate in their pre-seed funding round.
