Need Wipes offer biodegradable cleaning product for fitness centres across Australia

Need Wipes offer biodegradable cleaning product for fitness centres across Australia
September 6, 2021

Australian-owned company ,Need Wipes is offering a 100% plant-based solution to the problem of plastic waste with their line of biodegradable antibacterial gym wet wipes.

The founders of Need Wipes, Andre and Leonard Hwang, note "the world is changing and the way we live needs to change with it. We are committed to making a difference by doing what we can on a small scale within the health and fitness industry”.

Andre and Leonard Hwang, who also own and operate franchised gyms in Sydney, understand the specific requirement for health and fitness operators to provide an easy and effective cleaning solution for their staff and members to use that helps keep gyms clean. They are passionate to work with many like-minded businesses to make the conscious decision to use plastic free 100% bamboo biodegradable wet wipes, while inspiring others to do so in the process.

Hwang highlights that gym members appreciate using biodegradable wipes, that are thicker and heavier compared to regular wipes, and better for the environment.

Need Wipes’ mission is to provide a product that meets the needs of health and fitness operators, and the planet with an environmental impact in mind. The need for disposable products has increased dramatically over recent years, resulting in a significant increase in waste production. This includes billions upon billions of wet wipes being used globally. Unlike other suppliers, Need Wipes do not stock or support any plastic blended wet wipes that ultimately end up in landfill forever.

To counter this issue, they have a product that not only protects from harmful germs but also nurtures nature at the same time by using sustainable bamboo-based material, which means it will biodegrade within 3 months of use into our environment when disposed of properly. All packaging materials are also recyclable or compostable, making these wipes an environmentally preferred alternative to traditional plastic blended products that are being offered on the market today.

These biodegradable gym wipes, along with their sleek line of wall and floor standing dispensers are available online for purchase. Every online order contributes towards offsetting carbon emissions through Ecologi’s reforestation efforts, who plants one tree for every product purchased online.
