Introduction to SimplyGood
Created by the UglyGood team, SimplyGood is a consumer brand that shines the spotlight on plastic waste with its line of sustainable cleaning products.
Having seen the plastic problem on the global scale, we are convinced that plastic straws aren’t the main culprits – consumers’ purchasing decisions are. This is why we conceived a simple yet elegant solution to help consumers make sustainable decisions, starting with cleaning solutions in refillable tablet form and reusable bottles.
Currently, SimplyGood’s cleaning tablets come in 3 variants, (i.e. bathroom, all-purpose, window & glass), all with non-toxic formulations. Better yet, these tiny tablets are effective, coming out on top in numerous efficacy tests against competing products, and help consumers save space with their small form factor (i.e. 200 times smaller than traditional cleaning products).
With sustainability at the core of whatever we do, our tablet packaging are designed to reduce single use plastic packaging by up to 90%. They also reduce the carbon footprint required to ship liquid solutions (water, basically) around, being 300 times lighter than cleaning solutions.
All these are made possible, because we have reimagined conventional household products and built sustainability into our products and processes, all while focusing on offering our consumers a simple and good user experience.
Why we do what do?
The statistics are terrifying. A recent study  showed that Singaporeans use 467 million plastic bottles a year. Linking each bottle from top to bottom, they stretch across 107,410km, equivalent to going around the earth 2.6 times. But Singapore is just one country. A Bank of America global research report recently revealed that Asia contributes 82% of plastic waste entering oceans. Globally, 1 million plastic bottles are being bought every minute, ranging from consumer products like shampoo conditioners to cleaning solutions.
So, why does this affect us? Tiny plastic particles are found in air, food and water. The average person unintentionally consumes a credit card’s worth of plastic – 5g – a week. This adds up to about 260g of plastic that a human being eats, drinks or breathes in a year, according to a World Wide Fund for Nature study. Needless to say, this brings up images of animals ingesting plastic materials and is detrimental to humans as well, whether or not we are aware of it.
