Liquid handwashes have been lifesavers (literally!) in 2020. Unfortunately, they are either packaged in thick plastic bottles or laminated refill packs. These are mostly high-grade plastic and though theoretically recyclable, less than 15% would actually get recycled. So, most of this material would end up in a landfill.
Since the dominant ingredient (80%+) of handwash liquids is water and we have plenty of that at home, why not re-use our existing bottles and create some more handwash when we run out?
Great idea! This handwash powder pack contains the active ingredients that just need to be added to 500ml of water to create a thick, fragrant, and antimicrobial handwash. Our ingredients have been carefully chosen to be gentle on your hands and on the water bodies they drain into.
Packaging: The powder is packaged in a fully compostable pouch. This pouch can be added to a home composting unit or to your garden soil, and will break down under natural conditions in about 6 months. It is CPCB approved and will also be accepted at a community or industrial composting unit near you. If not composting yourself, the best way would be to segregate and inform your waste collector about this material.
Please refer to the leaflet inside for detailed instructions on mixing; the images on the left will help you get an idea as well.
Did you know that frequent handwashing and bathing were not intuitive personal hygiene practices till as late as 1880s? What the Covid-19 pandemic has re-iterated as a simple and life-saving technique was in fact a revolution brought about by a young Hungarian physician in the mid-19th century. And yes, ‘life-saving’ is not an overstatement; according to the World Health Organization, routine handwashing can prevent more than a million deaths every year.
