Lavo case study - Same amount of doses


Concentrating the product to reduce packaging

The initiative

La Parisienne multipurpose bleach has been available in a more concentrated formula since 2013. The product contains the same amount of reagents and less water, so consumers get the same number of doses in a smaller format.

The winning solution

The concentrated formula reduces the environmental footprints of the product and packaging, in particular by limiting resource use. Less water goes into the bleach’s formulation and less plastic goes into its packaging and the compact format allows to transport more bottles on each pallet, which means fewer trucks on the road and less greenhouse gas emissions!
