Cleancult Teams Up with Walmart in National Retail Launch to Debut Patented Home Care Products
Cleancult, a disrupter in the home cleaning space on a mission to remove single-use plastic waste from the household cleaning category, today announces its largest retail expansion to date into more than 3,000 Walmart stores nationwide. Through this new class of trade, Cleancult will bring their first-to-market, paper-based refill cartons of hand soaps, dish soaps, all-purpose cleaners, and laundry into the homes of even more customers.
Both Cleancult and Walmart are committed to becoming more regenerative through their products and business practices. By harnessing their patented carton technology, Cleancult is proud to support Walmart's goal to avoid or reduce one billion metric tons (a gigaton) of emissions from its global value chain by 2030. Cleancult has been recognized as a Giga-Guru by Walmart as part of its supplier engagement platform Project Gigaton™, the top recognition status for suppliers engaging with Project Gigaton. The Giga-Guru status acknowledges companies that are driving sustainable impact by setting SMART goals that are shared publicly and report having reduced or avoided emissions in at least three areas (of a possible six: energy use, nature, waste, packaging, transportation, and product use and design). In addition to implementing these goals, Cleancult is an Activator in the U.S. Plastics Pact, a global network driving change to ensure that all plastic packaging be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025. Further pledging their dedication to plastic reduction, Cleancult is a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, supporting the collaborative's mission to take meaningful action toward packaging sustainability.
