Gloss Fuel are committed to delivering Premium Car Care and Car Detailing products whilst minimising single use plastics. No other detailing brand cares for your car and the environment like Gloss Fuel.
It's nearly impossible, and certainly not financially viable, to completely eliminate plastic in the world of detailing. It is possible for us all to reduce plastic waste and minimise single use plastic, with some simple changes in buying practices.
We are not producing weak eco chemicals which are manufactured to maximise our profits. Our products are capable of doing a fantastic job without the need of extremely harsh ingredients or strong caustic/acidic blends.
All of our caps and triggers are fully recyclable. Our trigger sprayers are designed to output a minimum of 5000ml. This means you can refill one of our 500ml bottles ten times, maximising the life of the trigger.
Both our HDPE bottles and PET bottles are made from 30% recycled plastic material and are are fully recyclable plastic bottles. We encourage all of our customers to keep the bottles and simply refill them using a Gloss Fuel Refill Pack.
Gloss Fuel Refuel Packs are our way of helping to reduce the amount of single use plastic and plastic waste in the Car Detailing scene.
2x 500ml bottles + 2x caps: 78g 'vs' 1x refuel pack: 19g =
59g/75% reduction in single use plastic waste!
2x 500ml bottles + 2x caps + 2x triggers: 118g 'vs' 1x refuel pack: 19g =
99g/84% reduction in single use plastic waste!
Our Refuel Packs are 100% recyclable (recycle code 7). You may/may not be able to recycle these via your household kerbside collection - please check with your local waste collection contractor. Refuel Packs can be recycled at any Terracycle collection point. Please empty the Refuel Pack, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before recycling.
If you cannot find a suitable recycling option close to where you live, please return your empty Gloss Fuel Refuel Packs to us and we'll ensure that they are fully recycled.
