TORONTO — A Canadian janitorial support company, Earth Brand, is bringing their Green Seal Certified cleaning pods to the Canadian market.

According to Oceana, Canadians produce a lot of plastic waste; an estimated 3.3 million tonnes per year. About 2.8 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in Canadian landfills every year – equivalent to the weight of 24 CN towers. Given this, the Government of Canada has recently passed legislation that bans single-use plastics by the end of 2021.

Earth Brand ensures that consumers can access cleaning solutions without the need for additional plastic waste. By replacing the need for single-use plastic cleaning products and reducing transport-related carbon emissions by up to 95%, Earth Brand is trying to transform the way Canadians clean with their solution.

The completely dissolvable pods can be used to refill and reuse any existing spray bottle. Alternatively, the purchase of a reusable Earth Brand bottle system will allow the consumer to simply add water to produce an earth-friendly cleaning solution.


By reusing existing plastic bottles, Earth Brand limits contributing to the overwhelming amount of plastic that currently exists in our environment. By recycling the Earth Brand Pouches that contain the pods, the system has a negative plastic footprint when reusing a single-use plastic spray bottle. Consumers simply drop the dissolvable cleaning pod into water, shake, and they’re ready to clean. With lower shipping costs and no need for repeat bottle purchases, this innovative cleaning solution comes in at 75% of the cost of traditional, brand-name cleaning products.

“I am thrilled to introduce Earth Brand cleaning pods to the world. As an environmentally-conscious buyer and new father, I am always looking for ways for our family to be environmentally responsible, conveniently, without sacrificing quality or spending a fortune,” says Nik Barey, who is spearheading the launch of Earth Brand.

By implementing pod-based cleaning solutions, consumers will be able to reduce plastic waste introduced into the environment, reuse existing bottles, and recycle their plastic waste conscientiously.
