Bio-D cleans up with consumer champion Which? Eco Buy endorsement

Hull’s green cleaning products manufacturer has had its top eco credentials underlined when it comes to dealing with plates, pots and pans by consumer champion Which?

Bio-D has secured the Eco Buy award, a key endorsement for its range of environmentally friendly dishwasher tablets.
