Zero Plastic Inside

Zero Plastic Inside


This month, Marcel’s Green Soap is all about plastic. Or rather: no plastic! Because the negative consequences of plastic on our planet are becoming increasingly evident. And the plastic particles are getting smaller and smaller... Despite alarming reports about microplastics, they are still being used in the products of many big brands. They certainly won't find their way into our products. And yours? Join #plasticfreeMay!

MICROPLASTICS: A BIG PROBLEM IN SMALL PIECES

Microplastics are found everywhere: in oceans, soil, surface water, and our food. Bizarre, isn't it? Recently, scientists even found these tiny pieces of plastic in the human body. The harmfulness of their presence is still unknown. But the mere presence is not a pleasant thought.

MICROPLASTICS IN CLEANING & CARE PRODUCTS

The fact that microplastics end up in nature, our food, and bodies through the breakdown of larger plastic products is bad enough. But deliberately adding microplastics to the products we use is even worse. And most of the time, these tiny pieces of plastic don't even serve a purpose. Microplastics are often added to make a product look 'better'. For example, some brands give their detergents a milky color because it is supposed to look nicer. And this color is caused by an ingredient made from microplastics. It's unnecessary if you ask us. Or do you think the color of your detergent is important? ;) However you spin it, it's unnecessary, and it's high time brands stopped this practice.

ZERO PLASTIC INSIDE

Marcel’s Green Soap products have always been free of microplastics. And since January 2023, they officially carry the 'Zero Plastic Inside' certificate from the Plastic Soup Foundation. Brands that are 100% free of microplastics receive the Zero Plastic Inside certificate from them.
