Replenish – MBDC certified cleaning product launches today


Here’s an ecologically intelligent cleaning product that we can wrap our hands around and (pardon the pun), flip over…Sustainability guru William McDonough and his posse at McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) worked closely with Jason Foster, Founder and CEO of Replenish, and his development team to bring a more sustainable household cleaning product to market and it launches today.

replenish.jpgRecycling is good for the environment – but it’s just not good enough.  We need to get to reuse.  By creating more sustainable products, we can help change our throw-away, disposable culture,” said Jason Foster, Founder and CEO of Replenish.  “We hope to bring Replenish’s innovative design to all forms of household liquids, and in turn inspire a reuse revolution with smart, sustainable products for happier homes and a healthier planet.”

Why we like it:

  • Replenish is made from 98% plant-based ingredients – natural, sustainable ingredients that are non-toxic to aquatic life, readily biodegradable and PH Neutral –  safe for you, home and planet
  • high-tech green chemistry reduces the amount of cleaner needed to rinse away soils by more than 50 percent
  • 100% made in the USA and has a supply chain radius of only 200 miles
  • works on all surfaces that can be cleaned with water
  • replace the Concentrate Pod, not the bottle…spray head & bottle are 100% recyclable (PET #1, the most recyclable plastic) and engineered to last about 3 years

Created solely from upcycled materials, the ‘Mustachioed Mechanical Gentleman‘ mask features a base that in its prior life was a video cassette case, and has now been molded and painted to look like formed brass. A cracked clock face, positioned with thick metal wire, hovers as a monocle in front of his right eye. (more…)
