eco kit packaging Facts

Is it recyclable?

Yes, it is recyclable and widely recycled in the UK via council kerbside schemes.

What is it made from?

100% cardboard; 76% recycled, 24% virgin material.

Why is it not made from 100% recycled material?

Making a box from 100% recycled material means it is not strong enough to keep your bottles safe during delivery, so we use 24% virgin material in our box that is obtained from sustainable sources.

frequently asked questions - General Questions

This is a new cleaning bundle range from Lever that looks to reduce the amount of plastic used whilst helping you care for your home. It offers a range of laundry & surface cleaners in our innovative ecorefills & ecobottles.

In refilling your laundry & surface cleaner range at home with our ecorefills and re-usable ecobottles, you help us to reduce the amount of plastic packaging required to get the product to your home (as they are smaller than conventional products) and save plastic with every reuse.

Initially, let's be honest, yes, the starter pack of ecobottles and ecorefills is similar to buying the regular products in terms of plastic content. However, by the next refill you've already started saving plastic and with continued use of the ecorefills over a year you could save up to 68% of the plastic that you might have used in looking after your home.

100% cardboard: 76% recycled, 24% virgin material. Our cardboard carries the FSC Mix label which ensures that sourcing originates only from acceptable non-controversial harvesting, including material from FSC-certified forests, recycling and/or controlled wood.

We have found that making a box from 100% recycled material means that it is not strong enough to keep your bottles safe during delivery, so we use 24% virgin material in our box which is all obtained from sustainable sources.

Yes, it is recyclable - please recycle it via your council kerbside scheme when you have finished with it.

Eco Kit System: Dilute at Home

In using our ecorefill system you help us to reduce the amount of plastic packaging required to get the product to your home as ecorefills are smaller & lighter than conventional products.

Never use the concentrated ecorefills without dilution and always follow the instructions on the pack. Use of the undiluted ecorefills may risk damage to your surfaces and clothes.

Eco Kit System: ecobottles

The ecobottles are specially designed for multiple uses and allow you to re-use them for up to a year before replacement. This saves lots of plastic, helping you to do your part for the environment.

These bottles are made from 100% recycled PET material which leads to the slightly greyish colour.

This new Cif ecobottle is part of the wider Lever Eco Kit dilute at home product suite, so we have developed this separate matching ecobottle for Cif which forms part of that product suite alongside the Persil ecobottle. The other bottle sold on our site (Cif Beautiful Bottle) was developed before the Lever Eco Kit was created.

We recommend that you change your ecobottle every 12 months. This will be free if you stay shopping with www.leverdirect.co.uk and we will automatically remind you when it is time for a change.

We do not recommend that you clean the ecobottle out before using a new ecorefill but please ensure that you use the correct ecorefill with the correctly labelled ecobottle. If you do decide to clean it out, then use fresh, cold tap water and ensure that the ecobottle is dry before re-using it. We recommend you do not wash it in a dishwasher.

Eco Kit System: Re-ordering

When you are running low on a product simply scan the QR code to be taken to the re-order section of the Leverdirect site.

When a product is about to run out, scanning the QR code on the ecobottle label will take you directly to the re-order section of the Leverdirect website where you can select the number of ecorefills that are required.

Products: Persil ecorefill

Persil ecorefill by Lever is an innovative biological laundry liquid concentrate. N.B. it must be diluted with cold drinking tap water before use.

No. This is a slightly different formulation to that sold in supermarkets due to the need to make it highly concentrated. We hope you will be delighted with the fragrance and great cleaning performance from this new product.

No. Please dilute the ecorefill into the ecobottle provided and follow the instructions on-pack.

After ensuring that the cap is securely tightened you should simply turn the bottle upside-down and back 5 times to mix. There is no need to shake.

As Persil do not have a 44 wash standard pack on sale in the UK the fairest way to calculate the amount of plastic saved by using the pouch system is to compare packs using the amount of plastic on a per wash basis. Comparing the 44W ecorefill pouch to the closest size Persil bottle (38W) on a plastic mass per wash basis led to the 86% plastic saving figure.

As plastic pouches are not currently collected and recycled by most local authorities in the UK we must include this instruction. We are working really hard to improve our product and hope to have updated packaging & guidance on how to recycle them soon.

As plastic pouches are not currently collected and recycled by most local authorities in the UK we must include the Don’t Recycle instruction. We are working really hard to improve our product and hope to have updated packaging & guidance on how to recycle them soon.

Products: Persil Bio by Lever (Diluted product)

Persil products always deliver a great cleaning result and a fresh fragrance you'll love. We're confident that the Persil ecorefill system, with its fabulous new fragrance, will delight you & your family.

We do not have a non-biological variant in the ecorefill range at the moment but may decide to bring one out in future. Keep checking the website.

Persil bio by Lever is a unique product with a different formulation to the Persil liquids that you can find in the supermarket. As such, although many ingredients are plant-based, it does not contain our full range of plant-based stain removers as used in other Persil liquids.

Products: Cif ecorefills (General)

The refill is the same, but we have given more information on the ecobottle to show you how the diluted liquid can also be used as a Floor product. In addition, we have included a dosing ball with the Lever Eco Kit, which can be used to help with dosing into a bucket if you want to use the Kitchen or Anti-Bac as Floor products.

Yes, the product in the ecorefill is super concentrated, and when diluted as per instructions will give the same great cleaning performance as the corresponding conventional Cif spray product.

Products: Cif ecorefill (Kitchen 2-in-1 Spray & Floor)

We would like you to try pouring directly from the bottle with the spray head removed into the multi-function dosing ball provided with the Eco Kit. If you find this inconvenient then please do let us know & we can arrange to send over a dosing cap for the Cif 2-in-1 products. Please ensure the dosing ball is washed & dried before use with another product.

Products: Cif ecorefill (Anti-bac 2-in-1 Spray & Floor)

We would like you to try pouring directly from the bottle with the spray head removed into the multi-function dosing ball provided with the Eco Kit.

Please ensure the dosing ball is washed & dried before use with another product.

If you do have specific hygiene requirements on flooring we would recommend that you spray the product directly and evenly on to the surface and leave for 5 minutes, then wipe with a damp cloth. In case of heavy dirt, apply twice. You can then mop the floor with a diluted solution as instructed if required.

Products: Cif ecorefill (Bathroom Spray)

Our Bathroom ecorefill formulation is unsuitable for use on some floor surfaces found in bathrooms.
