Founded by Angus Grahame in the little town of Hay on Wye, in the Welsh Marches, the Splosh story first began. It was in January 2012 in a supermarket car park throwing empty containers into a recycling receptacle, where he came up with the idea of reusing plastic bottles. This was instead of needlessly throwing them away after one use when they are in perfectly good condition. After many months of research and working with designers, chemists and fragrance experts, Angus’ dream became a reality.
The idea was to sell home care products direct to customers as concentrates and without using any water, making the products much better value and without any plastic waste. It is an excellent way to buy your laundry and home cleaning essentials by utilising brilliant chemistry together with a clever refilling system, which also greatly reduces environmental impact through low CO2 emissions. As the starter bottles are refillable you don’t need to throw them away, which means miles less waste going to landfill and better value by cutting out all of the unnecessary materials such as water and packaging.
In November 2013 Splosh picked up a prestigious Green Apple Award at the House of Commons. This Europe-wide award recognises environmental best practice, officially making Splosh an award winning brand!
