Household probiotics

When you read the words ‘probiotics’ and ‘good bacteria’, you’ll probably picture a tub of yoghurt or Yakult – not necessarily cleaning products. But today’s a new day, complete with a natural new science-based health trend: Pro-microbiome.

L’eaundry 1

Sleek, sophisticated, stylish. Probably not the first words that come to mind when you think of laundry branding. (More like bright, garish and in-your-face.)

But shaking up the shelves is L’eaundry, a luxury brand that wants us to treat our clothes as well as we treat our skin. With the strapline ‘Treat your second skin like your first’, the ingredients are intended to ‘pamper’ clothes by gently washing them and leaving them with a light aromatic fragrance that lasts until the next day.

Clean up your newsfeed

The sponsored tweet from British Gas. The now obsolete Breaking Bad memes. The inappropriately named ‘best Vines on the web’ posts.

Any Facebook or Twitter user will know the feeling of having their social media feeds clogged up with the unnecessary and frankly annoying posts of pages they don’t even remember Liking. But now cleaning brand Ajax has the perfect answer to all the unwanted mess, with their new app, Social Wipes.

Fill ‘er up

Traditionally the three R’s have (somewhat confusingly) referred to reading, writing and arithmetic, but in recent years it’s been (more accurately) associated with Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Although many of us do our best to Recycle, Brooklyn-based Common Good are helping us with the Reuse bit through their range of refillable dye and phosphate-free soaps, cleaners and laundry detergents.

There’s method in that mo

Method is launching two limited edition ‘Soap for Hope’ hand washes in support of two important causes: breast and prostate cancer awareness. Both hand wash bottles feature unique designs, including a moustache pattern as a wink to Movember, the global charity that challenges men around the world to grow a moustache during the month of November, raising money and awareness for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer.

Clean sweep

Ketchup. Wine. Pomegranate jus. Just a few of the challenges found in the modern washing basket. But spending all day up a chimney takes laundry to a whole new level.

Tangent Garment Care was co-founded by David Samuelsson, inspired by his chimney sweep grandfather’s meticulous approach to looking after his clothes. Taking strong cues from the beauty sector, Tangent GC uses minimalist branding mixed with apothecary-style glass bottles to reinforce their message of natural care.

Legacy of loud

For most of us, Marshall Amps mean proper, loud music. Over the last 50 years, they’ve travelled on the Highway to Hell with AC/DC and shared the stage with various rock icons. And now, they’re coming to our living rooms.

Green bottle glamour

The classic glass ‘contour’ Coca-Cola bottle is about as iconic as modern design gets. Synonymous with the brand and instantly recognisable, the bottle has been a staple of Coca-Cola for nearly a century. Now, they’ve teamed up with Nendo to create a range of kitchenware – inspired by the classic bottle.

Who gives a…

If you’ve ever thought ‘there isn’t anything left that a social entrepreneur could attach a buy-one give-one model to’, then clearly you haven’t met Simon Griffiths.

Griffiths is the founder of Who Gives A Crap, a company that sells recycled toilet paper. His business donates 50% of their profits to Water Aid, who use the funds to improve sanitation in Africa. Apparently his recycled rolls are lovely and soft, too – making this social enterprise beneficial to everybody.
