The new carpet cleaner is called Woolite, it is an environmentally friendly carpet cleaner that uses recycled plastic pellets and is made of recycled polyester, a material that is considered to be 100% renewable.
Woolite is one of many products being made to replace traditional carpet cleaners that rely on petroleum-based products such as kerosene and diesel.
A report by the National Green Tribunal in September found that the carpet cleaners made from recycled plastic had to be sourced from a landfill or waste treatment plant, and were often not tested for safety or environmental impacts.
But the Tribunal found that most of the recycled plastic products used by the cleaning companies had been certified as biodegradable, meaning that they could be recycled and used in a wide variety of uses.
“The carpet cleaner has been developed in a very unique way to address the sustainability concerns of a growing number of households in India,” the report said.
“It is made from organic recycled plastics with an eco-friendly coating that provides an environment-friendly alternative to traditional carpet cleaning methods.
The products are manufactured in India using environmentally friendly methods and come in different colours, sizes and types to suit any household.
The report concluded that there were several issues with traditional carpet cleaner manufacturing in India.”
In particular, the recycled plastics have been found to have low recycling rates and environmental impacts compared to conventional plastics, resulting in high manufacturing cost and high energy consumption,” the National Greens Tribunal said.
The company that produces the carpet cleaner, Kudlare, said that the products it is making from recycled plastics were safe and that there was no environmental risk associated with the products.
Kudlore said that it was confident in the quality of its products and had not received any complaints from any customers.”
There has been no incident related to any of our recycled plastic items, nor any issues with any customers,” it said.
Kurdish carpet cleaners were banned in India by the country’s government in 2014, but they are still widely used in rural areas.
The ban came into effect in February and resulted in widespread protests in several states.
