“Be kind, be # elmkind”
Elmkind is an eco-friendly cleaning supplies business founded in 2019 by Emma Moore and Alex Dobson in Chudleigh Knighton, Devon. Elmkind have a strategy to remove single-use plastic spray bottles for cleaning supplies (a similar concept to single-use water bottles).
Specifically designed to help the environment, Elmkind’s aluminium bottles are both refillable and fully recyclable. The bottles are stylish and will naturally fit into the family home.
The formulations are plant-based and fragranced with high-quality organic essential oils. Every product has a highly concentrated refill version available, which can simply be poured into the bottle (N.B. you only need to pour 100ml of concentrate into your bottle and then top the rest up with water).
