Essential Oil Bug Repellents
Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic (PCR) Bottles

At Nantucket Spider, we have always searched for ways to decrease our reliance on plastic and reduce our impact on the environment.  In 2019, we switched to bottling our natural essential oil bug repellents in post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) bottles. By 2025 we will be taking our efforts on step further and completing the switch from plastic to aluminum.

What is PCR?

Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic (PCR) is the process of creating new usable material from used plastic that would have otherwise been thrown away. This helps to reduce waste in landfills and water sources.

The Future

We are in the process of moving to an even more sustainable option for bottling our natural essential oil bug repellents. Stay tuned for more information, and sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the latest news from us.

100% Compostable Boxes

When we set out to create a new line of products, we knew we needed to do the best we can to create a product that creates no waste. All of our Nantucket Footprint products are packaged in 100% compostable, child-resistant boxes. After using the product and composting the box, there is no waste left behind.

Child-Resistant Button

Every Day in the USA, there are over 350 calls to poison control centers about children who have ingested household cleaning products.
As more products become available in attractive pods, candy-like tablets or concentrates, the danger to children from these pretty poisons becomes greater. Companies are not required to deliver cleaning products in child-resistant packages. We have chosen to do so simply because it is the right thing to do.
One case of poisoning is one case too many!

Laundry Detergent

Lightweight & Easy to Store

A bonus of our super concentrated cleaning and laundry strips is that they are small and lightweight. They take up very little space and when not in use, tuck away on a shelf like a tiny row of books.
