Cleaning Products

Green bee biodegradables

It is their mission to provide, to households and businesses, biodegradable products that work as well as commercial brands and are priced competitively against these same brands.  In addition, they aim to facilitate the avoidance of plastic where feasible and the reusing of plastic in all other scenarios, by providing refillable bottles and collecting bulk packaging for cleaning, refilling and recirculation.  They believe that reusing plastic is far superior to recycling!

They supply dishwashing liquid, all-purpose cleaner, hand wash, laundry liquid, fabric softener, automatic dishwasher powder and waterless hand sanitiser.  All our products are fully biodegradable, non-toxic and are free of EDTA and phosphates, making them safe for the whole family including pets. The ingredients are plant based and free of petrochemicals.

Mike & the Organics

Mike & the Organics’ focus is on building soil organically.  Soil fertility is a fundamental resource for future food security but is being continuously depleted by chemical-based large-scale commercial farming.

Their vision is an urban society that increasingly produces a significant portion of its own food in a system where urban waste is recycled back into the nutrient supply chain.

Mike & the Organics’ products  include vermi-composting worms, vermi-compost tea, comfrey plants and powders, various compost & manure products as well as wood-chips.
