Arm & Hammer ‘Essentials’ Dumps Bottle, Cuts Supply Chain Emissions
Arm & Hammer introduced Arm & Hammer Essentials cleaners. The company says the new products benefit the environment in several ways:
Uses fewer chemicals
The products use plant-based cleaners derived from coconuts and palm kernel oil, as well as other biodegradable cleaners. The products contain no ammonia or phosphates, and contains between 20 to 38 percent less chemicals than traditional cleaners in pre-filled 32oz bottles.
Uses fewer resources
The production of Arm & Hammer refill packaging uses 82 percent fewer trees per ton and 82 percent less petroleum per ton than for traditional trigger spray bottles.
Consumes less Energy
The company says shipping fewer trigger spray bottles takes 70,000 trucks off the road, saving more than 18 million gallons of fuel and 40 tons of CO2.
Produces less packaging waste
The refills were designed to use 80 percent less packaging than two standard, prefilled 32-ounce cleaners, which reduces potential landfill waste.
Clorox Company, which also makes cleaning solutions, was recently reprimanded by the National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business Bureaus for making dubious claims about Clorox Green Works.
