Detergent Bottles is a very general term for what these really are. They are not all detergents in the way we consider detergent (i.e washing powder). These are the PET Botttles with Trigger Spray guns on them for cleaning the counter top, cleaning the shower, spray on a stain on a shirt, oven cleaners, disinfectant, etc. You all know the type.
Now if like me (and before someone suggests it I am NOT a Green Nut), I am concerned for our environment and alos the future of my childrena nd grandchildren and their children and so on.
Whne the wife an I go shopping to one of the above named stores we invaribly return with at least 1 of these bottles if not 2. and both with spray triggers. What have the empty ones got More f**king triggers!. What do I put in my recycle bin ?. I rinse out teh bottle and put it in, the trigger I'm afraid goes in the land fill waste bin because it is not acceptable recycleable rubbish.
Why of Why cant the manufacturers offer 'Refills'- An Eco Friendly Solution for thier product. We can reuse our existing trigger, and when the spring is eventually worn out we can buy a new bottle with a trigger on it. Think what else, we could save ourselves a few cent on expenditure - probably not a lot. I would prefer to pay the current price and have the savings passed on into researching more biodegradeable containers for the detergents.
