Consumers’ awareness when purchasing everyday products has increased in recent years. Price and brands are taking a back seat and sustainability is becoming an increasingly important topic for consumers. Even if conventional cleaning agents are the cheaper alternative, more and more consumers are choosing to use cleaning agents that are less harmful to nature and humans. Sustainability not only includes more environmentally friendly and degradable ingredients; packaging is also a key issue. Attitudes towards plastic usage and recycling have changed and are becoming more important to consumers. Products that focus on sustainability have recently developed from a niche product to a top seller.
