Consume less plastic — one simple gesture at a time

We often hear that small daily gestures can have a significant positive impact on the environment. This is exactly what happens when we choose bulk products. To help you reduce your plastic consumption, keep your home clean and people healthy, Purenature has thought of everything - even waste-proof spouts, that is! Vie de Parents takes a look at all this to demystify the bulk universe and its benefits.

Laundry detergent, dish & hand soap

Tell me how many bottles you have, and I'll tell you who you are

Reducing your plastic consumption means thinking about reusing your empty bottle of dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent. Store them in your entryway closet or in your vehicle, so that you remember to bring them along with you during your next trip to the pharmacy. This way, there’ll be no shortage of soap in your home and you won’t have to buy new bottles to add to the pile you already have. The idea is to reduce waste, no matter what bin you put it in.

Starting from scratch is way too good!

No containers? No problem! Each household product is available in a transparent bottle format, to make refilling easy! You can refill up to two liters in the pharmacy. We can then refill the smaller bottles at home, such as two or three bottles of hand soap for example. Each in-store filling station is at the cutting edge of innovations in the bulk products field to make things easier. Anti-spill valves and compressor system make the experience a breeze! In most places, a clerk even takes care of filling the container for the customer.

Purenature: A combination of positive points

For Purenature, it’s obvious that the most important part of the product is the product itself! Research and development have made it possible to find the right high-performance ingredients to maintain your home properly. The products are phosphate-free, chlorine-free and toxic-acid-free, and are available in concentrated forms. The result is that you can clean quickly using a small amount of soap. Rub less with less; that definitely sounds good!

Saving money is a winner

Just like reusable grocery bags, refilling empty containers saves us from paying for soap AND plastic. In fact, that's a 25% savings that applies to each fill. And the result is millions of plastic bottles less in circulation every year. It makes a notable difference for our planet.

Every gesture counts

It is not just up to the consumer to make an effort in their purchasing habits, Purenature is also committed to taking concrete actions to improve its ecological footprint. Once the in-pharmacy refilling jug is emptied, it is returned to the factory to be sanitized, refilled and put back into circulation. The manufacturing plant has been Ecocert Climate Commitment certified for a fifth year. This is a certification that highlights a company’s sustainable actions.

Keeping your plastic containers and bringing them with you on your errands is a habit that can be learned. Like using reusable bags. Buying bulk requires a small, meticulous effort that ends up being good for both your wallet and our planet.
