Big Thicket Messenger - July 2008
Caring about the environment isn’t just for tree huggers any more. The national green movement is sweeping the nation and consumers realize they can make a positive difference without making major lifestyle changes.
One company – Wonder Tablitz Corporation – is helping consumers reduce plastic and cardboard consumption and reduce the carbon footprint by simply using new household products. Wonder Tablitz are household cleaners and deodorizers that are sold with a liquid-free spray bottle and patented effervescent tablets. Consumers just add hot tap water and drop one tablet into the specially designed spray bottle and can begin cleaning immediately.
Wonder Tablitz, new household cleaners and deodorizers, use patented effervescent cleaning tablet technologies to deliver powerful and effective products. Consumers simply add water and a single tablet to an exclusive spray bottle to produce the solution. Four Wonder Tablitz products are currently on the market: Glass and Multi-Surface Cleaner, All Purpose Cleaner with Bleach, Citrus All Purpose Cleaner and Fabric Refresher and Odor Eliminator.
According to Wonder Tablitz Corporation, Wonder Tablitz products offers multiple consumer advantages:
• They are safe and easy to use.
• They are effective home care products
• They cost up to 50% less than comparable cleaners.
They eliminate the need for large refill bottles requiring less storage space and fewer trips to the store.
• They reduce the use of plastic bottles by two-thirds or more.
Unlike traditional household cleaners, Wonder Tablitz spray bottles are sold with three effervescent cleaning tablets – each tablet representing one full 32-ounce bottle or a total of 96 ounces of product.
“Consumers simply add hot tap water to the patent-pending Wonder Tablitz spray bottle and drop in one of the three tablets to produce a full 32-ounce container of cleaning product,” said Bill Schultz, Wonder Tablitz Corporation partner. “The tablet is 100% water soluble and will completely dissolve within one to three minutes, depending on the water temperature. When the bottle is empty, the process is repeated, reusing the original spray bottle. By reusing the spray bottle, consumers are able to reduce plastic consumption, which means fewer plastic bottles are being produced and entering landfills.”
“More than 80 billion pounds of plastic are produced annually in the United States; the vast majority of which end up in landfills where they will likely still exist many millennia from now,” said Schultz. “Understanding consumers want to make a difference, but also want effective household cleaning products, we set out to create new cleaners that would be just as powerful and no more costly than the leading brands, but would also positively impact the environment. Specifically, we focused on ways to reduce plastics production, landfill waste and the carbon footprint.”
The use of specially formulated cleaning tablets allows consumers to use their own tap water and reuse their original dispenser. Adding water at home versus the manufacturing point significantly reduces shipping costs and fuel needed to transport the products. And because each unit represents three 32-ounce bottles, fewer corrugated boxes are required and shipping costs are reduced. The result is reduced carbon dioxide emissions and reduced landfill waste.
A beneficial by product of Wonder Tablitz products is pricing. “Consumers will save up to 50% of the cost of Wonder Tablitz products over comparable cleaning products of the same size,” said Schultz. “The math is fairly simply, with Wonder Tablitz, consumers are purchasing only one bottle along with three tablets that yields three full bottles of products.
