The Bio D Company's mission is simple: To manufacture effective and ethical cleaning products that don’t cost the Earth. For over 30 years we have been creating household products that are plant based, effective and kind to our planet. We use a range of plant based, sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients. We use environmentally responsible packaging. We make everything at our factory in Hull (which has BRCGS and ISO14001 certification for sustainable manufacturing). We are independently owned. We don’t test our products on animals or use ingredients that have been tested on animals. We only use vegan ingredients. We make products that are suitable for use in septic tanks and sewage treatment plants. We make our products affordable for everyone!
