Today is World Environment Day, the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. It is supported by many non-governmental organizations, businesses, government entities, and represents the primary United Nations outreach day supporting the environment. The theme for 2023 is #BeatPlasticPollution and with that in mind, let's look at one of our greenest product ranges, Nilaqua.

Nilaqua are a UK based producer of waterless hygiene and bathing products, with a focus on sustainability and environmental protection. They recently received their Ethical Accreditation by the Good Shopping Guide for "[continued] respect for the Environment, Animals, and People at the heart of its values."

Nilaqua's products are known for their ease of use and are especially suited for care environments where individuals are unable to bath due to limited mobility or have sensory or cognitive issues which could make bathing distressing or unsafe. They also make excellent travel toiletries, perfect for camping, festivals, road trips or to save space in your luggage!

The range includes: 

  • No Rinse Dry Shampoo
  • Skin Cleansing Foam
  • Alcohol Free Foam Hand Sanitiser
  • Rinsfree Waterless Shampoo Caps

As their products require no additional water or rinsing, they actively save water use. 

Let's look at some statistics

  • 1 bath = 80 Litres
  • 1 bottle = 480 Litres /320 Litres
  • On average people bath about 2-3 times per week, that’s 156 times per year! 12,480 Litres PER PERSON!

  • 1 Shampoo at average 50ml per wash : 10 baths saved = 800 LITRES
  • 1 Body Wash at an average of 33ml per wash: 15 baths saved = 1200 LITRES!
