Startup Re.stor saves 50,000 bottles in six months

Household cleaning products start-up Re.stor says it has managed to save 50,000 single-use plastic bottles from landfill in just under six months.

The company has created a waterless cleaning solution that is convenient, cost-effective and helps reduce plastic waste.

The brand first launched its laundry detergent sheets range in late October last year which garnered praise and hundreds of reviews. Following this, the brand has now introduced a line of concentrated cleaning tablets.

The non-toxic, cruelty-free tablets make 500ml of cleaner when dissolved in water while the refillable bottles are made of 100 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic.

Founder Grant Taylor said the business was set up to create a sustainable and circular cleaning option at an affordable price. “It’s the merging of these three pillars that enables us to make a greater change for the better.”

The concentrated cleaning tablets retail for $6.50 for a 2 pack while the refillable bottles retail for $5 for a starter pack. The laundry detergent sheets retail for $12.50 for 60 sheets.

Countdown and FreshChoice supermarkets across New Zealand will sell Re.stor’s naturally-derived concentrated cleaning tablets and refillable bottle range from Monday (May 16).
