Too good to waste, these cleaning products are made using food waste

The eco-friendly Belgian cleaning brand Ecover has unveiled two new products made out using food waste. The two products in their limited ‘Too Good To Waste’ range, include a Multi-Surface Cleaner and a Toilet Cleaner. They are crafted using up to 97% of rescued food waste (excluding water).
Potato peels have been ingeniously transformed into potent cleaning surfactants. They are fermented to fatty acids and treated with alcohol from zero-alcohol breweries and then converted into surfactants to turn them into a descaler. And the magic doesn't stop there, rescued lemon and mint have been used to create a fresh fragrance while sugar beet pulp has been repurposed into a thickener so the cleaner sticks. The bottles are also made with recycled plastic and the Multi-Surface Cleaner intentionally comes without a spray nozzle, saving 35% plastic.
This is such an interesting take on food waste reduction, imagine if it could be scaled up! Let's hope it becomes more than a limited edition.
