Sustainable Household Cleaning Market: Opportunities and Trends

Convenience vs. sustainability

Sustainability alone will not be enough to attract demand; consumers will always prioritise convenience ahead of it. Brands will need to highlight the convenience of buying eco-friendly products without requiring much effort and speak to the widely common view that brands need to do the work to make consumers’ lives sustainable.

  • Eco-friendly cleaning products challenge: 36% of consumers believe that convenience is more important than sustainability.

Empower consumers to act and buy sustainably

Consumers want to feel empowered and confident that their sustainable behaviours are making a difference, yet the majority struggle to know the environmental impact of their household chores. Brands can give confidence to consumer efforts by detailing the full product lifecycle and help consumers take a more active role by gamifying the process.

  • Sustainable household cleaning market challenge: 34% are discouraged from buying eco-friendly products because it’s difficult to know which products are truly eco-friendly.
