All products marked Eco on the SupermarketOwnBrandGuide.co.uk are deemed so by the producers/manufacturers or by the supermarket/s selling them.
Product/s labelled Eco on our shelves are derived from mineral and plant based material. As they are not based on petrochemical ingredients there is no residue from chemicals – which in turn helps the environment and lowers the consumer’s level of pollution.
