The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
There are 17 SDGs in all. They recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
That is why the SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing goals: clean water and sanitation, reduced inequalities and discrimination, zero poverty and an end to world hunger.
The creativity, knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society are necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context.
The Better Home was started in 2020 with a simple thought: that everyday household choices can make a significant impact to the world. We began with the belief that you don’t have to choose between what is effective, what’s good for you and what’s good for the planet.
Our mission is to make every home in India a part of the movement to achieve a greener, healthier future for us and our planet.
The Better Home cleaners are free of the harsh chemicals in most commercial cleaners. Chemicals such as bleach and ammonia that, with regular exposure, cause a range of respiratory illnesses and skin trouble.
They are made with safe, non-toxic, naturally-derived ingredients that are safe not just for human health, but for the larger well-being of the environment.
Our main mission is to provide household hygiene and keep toxic chemicals out of our waterways. Chemicals such as phosphates pollute the water and destroy marine life.
The Better Home cleaners contain mild, plant-based ingredients that readily biodegrade in the soil and water, leaving no toxic residues behind.
The wastewater from floor mopping and laundry can safely be repurposed in the garden.
Today, we have saved 38.5 million litres of water from being contaminated and have made 5.9K homes healthier.
To help achieve the UN’s goal of full and productive employment, and decent work for all by 2030, The Better Home partners with small and medium Indian businesses across the country. We have created several employment opportunities across the supply chain.
We prevent domestic wastewater from being polluted with toxic chemicals, thereby reducing the polluting of our lakes and rivers.
Our cleaners allow wastewater to be reused, thus reducing the dependence on freshwater.
Our bottles are designed to be reused, thus minimising the burden on municipal waste management systems, and reducing the plastic garbage sent to landfills.
Through the takeback and recycling programme we have for our refill pouches, we take full responsibility for recycling of our packaging.
The efficient management of our shared natural resources, and the way we dispose of toxic waste and pollutants, are important targets to achieve this goal. The Better Home is committed to responsible production across the value chain - from our ingredients and packaging to the end of life solutions we offer for it so as to reduce waste by recycling it.
We make responsible consumption an easy choice. Our cleaners, by being safe and non-toxic, allow for reuse of precious water and help users be more resource-efficient.
The Better Home is an eco-friendly brand committed to non-toxic ingredients, responsible packaging, waste reduction and improved recycling.
We help customers reduce their carbon footprint with the use of pollution-free products that are biodegradable and safe for terrestrial and marine ecosystems.
We make an active effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste we put out into the environment and encourage practices of reuse and recycling.
The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind.
A key aim of The Better Home is to protect marine ecosystems and other water sources by reducing pollution from contaminated domestic wastewater.
Our ingredients are free of toxic chemicals and microbeads that accelerate ocean pollution and destroy fish and other marine organisms.
