Discovered in 2013 and located in the Barents Sea, nearing the Arctic Circle, It’s one of the smaller plastic islands. The traces of residue adhering to it come from Europe and North America’s East Coast, being carried across oceanic currents up to the coast of Norway.
Discovered in 1972, it’s the second biggest garbage patch of the world, with a surface of 4 million km2. It’s sadly famous for its high density of residues: up to 200 thousand km2. It is propelled by the North Atlantic oceanic current, traveling from North to South due to a weather phenomena known as “El Niño”, which creates anomalies in the atmosphere and in the ocean, causing droughts, intense rains and the rise of the sea’s temperature.
It travels 1600 km depending on the season.
Recently discovered, it is found in front of the coasts of Chile and Peru, with a surface of 2,6 million km2. It is already 8 times bigger than Italy.
It is believed that it has been growing since 1988, but officially it was discovered in 2010. This island has an extension of 2 km with an estimated density of 10.000 residues per km2. The island doesn't look like a single compact body, it contains a high level of pelagic plastics, chemical sludges and other types of waste, mainly particles that are invisible at plain sight.
The latest discovery, the island of plastics from the Sargasso Sea is located in the North Atlantic. To the west you can find the Gulf’s current, to the East the Canary Islands current, and to the South the Ecuatorial South’s current. It is formed by highly recognizable residues:
Shampoo bottles, fishing apparel, rigid containers, bags and plenty of other types of plastics.
Located in the Pacific Ocean between California and the Hawaiian Archipelago. Formed 60 years ago, it’s the world’s biggest plastic island. It is estimated to contain 100 million metric tons of garbage and it’s surface extends up to 10 million km2. This equates to the sum of the Iberian Peninsula and the United States of America together.
Situated between South America and South Africa, it's one of the smallest islands. It travels through the South Atlantic oceanic currents. It extends more than 1 million km2. There is not much information on it due to its difficult access and it’s rarely intercepted by commercial routes.
With each MiniClean capsule, you spare the planet from another plastic bottle.
14 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year.
The water-soluble material is fundamentally composed of polyvinylalcohol. During the dissolution process and subsequent biodegradation, the capsule is decomposed in basic molecular units that leave no residue.
MiniClean is 100% cruelty free, none of our products are animal tested.
The entire Miniclean line of products offer maximum professional efficacy, similar or superior to conventional products.
No they do not. The capsule’s film container is degradable and compostable and under certain conditions of temperature, humidity and time, it goes through a process of bio-oxidation. It transforms into CO2, water, mineral salts and biomass (compost).
Dissolution times may vary depending on the specific product. Capsules are broken down and dissolved in under 2 minutes.
All of our capsules contain Bitrex to prevent accidental ingestion.
Yes, our capsules will dissolve in any type of water, including hard waters.
MiniClean capsules will dissolve at any temperature, hot or cold. Hot water will speed up dissolution.
Any bottle will do, but in the case of our Anti-Scale Bathroom and Kitchen Degreaser products, the bottle comes with a foam spray gun. With a normal spray gun you wont get foam.
