If there were an alternative to plastic bottles, we would use it. For detergents, however, the only practical and safe containers available are plastic. So we took a novel approach to limit the plastic WVCP contributes to the environment: we designed our own bottle. We made it from 100% post-consumer plastic, which means we are using recycled plastic to make a recyclable bottle. What’s more, the plastic we use is High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This is one of very few plastics that is considered a valuable recyclable: there is a growing domestic market for recycled HDPE.
We’re also focusing toward the future by making our heavy-duty bottles reusable. Wallowa Valley Cleaning Products envisions and is developing a future refill program where empty bottles can be refilled with new product at designated locations, or a return program where bottles can be sent to us to be refilled and returned to you. Stay tuned!
