Every year, approximately nine million tons of plastic go to the world's seas and oceans, which would be enough to completely cover large cities such as Warsaw 10 or even more times ...
At Werner & Mertz, we contribute to change the world for the better every single day, which is why since 2014 in the production of our cleaning agents and detergents we have been using plastic bottles made of 100% used plastic (recyclate) and that are 100% recyclable. So far, we have introduced over 400 million of these recycled PET bottles onto the market and thanks to this, we have saved over 15,000 tons of raw material. If we were to put them all into one giant bottle, it would be 459 meters high and 218 meters wide!
The world is getting smaller while the population is increasing, so we have to take better care of it. Already back in 1986, the German brand Frosch started developing a broad range of highly effective, eco-freindly cleaning products for your home and family. They are gentle on the skin, based on natural ingredients, and sold in innovative recycled packaging – which is good for our planet!
