The bide ethos: bide eco cleaning products are a zero waste cleaning solution, powered by local homeworkers. bide home manufacturing empowers people to earn a living from their own homes. When you buy a bide product, not only are you helping the planet, but you are also supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs. All boxes are hand selected and feature products that are home made in the UK. A tree is planted for every purchase, in partnership with Ecologi.
100% recycled or compostable. No waste, No plastic. The filler is made from starch and can be dissolved in water.
bide is a pending B Corporation Social Enterprise. At their core, they care deeply about the planet and the people who inhabit it. Their cleaning products are made from toxic free, plant derived raw ingredients. This means that there is no toxicity when they are used to clean homes and they do not release harmful materials into the water system.
Equally important is that they are safe for our home producers to handle during the manufacturing process.
bide addresses 2 major challenges; exponential growth in unemployment rates, expedited by COVID-19, and the climate crisis calling for mass adoption of sustainable practices.
bide was formed to find a solution. They produce goods that are environmentally positive and have social impact.
In 2020 bide launched "bide home manufacturing" (bhm). Instead of manufacturing their products in factories, bide bring the factories to people's homes. This is a socially and environmentally impactful method of producing.
The home manufacturing network is an initiative to empower the unemployed and marginalised, as they can earn a living from the safety of their own homes. This is done by partnering with charities whose vital outreach efforts help the underrepresented to rebuild.
