Love Your Lakes
What's it all about?
Love Your Lakes works in partnership with Windermere Reflections to improve water quality in Lake Windermere and the surrounding catchment lakes. We're helping local businesses, residents and visitors to take simple steps to reduce the use of phosphate. By reducing the amount of damaging phosphates entering the lakes we can all do our bit to protect the future of one of Lakeland's most beautiful destinations.
Choosing Phosphate Free
You can do your bit to reduce the amount of phosphates getting into the lakes by simply choosing phosphate dishwashing products. Always check the labels of your dishwashing products to ensure they are phosphate free, here are some well known products to try.
P-Free Dishwashing Products
- Tesco Naturally
- Faith in Nature
- Planet Clean, 5 in 1 dishwasher tablets
- Persil Powerpro Dishwash Tablets
- Sainsbury ‘All in One Ultimate Dishwasher Tablets’
- Co Op Premium Powerpod
The range of phosphate free dishwashing products is quite small and can be expensive so its worth buying in bulk and going online to find cheaper deals.
