You don’t have to live a toxic-free lifestyle to be concerned about the chemicals in your household cleaning products. However, it can be difficult to make the switch from the standard supermarket products to something a little more natural in the fear that the alternative might not be as effective as its chemical-laden counterpart.

Luckily there’s an option that does both—Koala Eco creates affordable cleaning products that are not only safe for your family and the environment, but they are just as effective as your usual suspects. The brainchild of husband and wife duo, Koala Eco was created when Jessica Bragdon and Paul Davidson were trying to find cleaning alternatives that were safe to use around their children and pets. They were unsuccessful in their quest to find safe and toxic-free products that would actually work, but instead of giving up they created their own.

By harnessing the power of essential oils in local plants from Australia, Jessica and Paul were able to create safer cleaning products that are also independently lab tested and proven to kill 99.99% of germs. Koala Eco products are vegan, all natural, environmentally-friendly, anti-fungal, disinfecting, and don’t contain dyes, synthetic fragrance, masking agents, palm oil, SLS or phosphates.

So how do they do it without toxic chemicals? Koala Eco manufactures their powerful antimicrobial cleansers using essential oils and other plant based ingredients including surfactancts and ethanol derived from sugar. From eucalyptus and peppermint, to rosalina and mandarin, the essential oils used provide both antimicrobial and aromatic functions. Essential oils are the healthy, eco-friendly and ethical alternative to synthetic fragrances that usually contain toxic ingredients. Koala Eco products are also plant-derived, biodegradable, and safe for daily use.

On top of their safety in the home, Koala Eco products are also better for the environment. They aren’t tested on animals, their bottles are made with 100 percent recycled and recyclable materials, and with each bottle sold Koala Eco donates a percentage to charity One Percent for the Planet.

So the next time you’re looking for a new dish soap or multipurpose bathroom cleaner, make the switch to environmentally-friendly, ethical and Australian-made Koala Eco products and give your family and the environment the quality they deserve.

Koala Eco Founder
“We couldn’t find what we wanted, so ultimately we thought: why don’t we make our own? We're both from entrepreneurial backgrounds, and so being Koala Eco’s first—and therefore possibly most demanding—customers, we had some pretty specific and sophisticated aims in mind”.
