Those handsome glass bottles.
That luscious scent.
And so ridiculously effective.
You’re a real dish.
What’s that? You make eco cleaning a breeze.
You’re just what the world needs.
Natural, UK made cleaning products that actually work? That’s right.
Hello there. We’re Tony and Annie Mcwilliam. Parents of two girls, interior design pros and nature lovers.
Having children was a kick up the backside. It got us thinking deeply about our home and the world we live in.
Our house was childproof. But it was full of toxins from the traditional cleaning products we used. We were literally breathing in, playing among (and quite possibly licking) harmful chemicals.
The cupboard under the sink was a no-go zone. And the smell? Hold-your-breath, I’m cleaning!
Finding natural cleaning products in the UK was near impossible.
So we created our own.
Award winning natural cleaning products UK
Three years later, Colt & Willow was born.
While we’ve won some shiny awards, that’s not what keeps us going.
Because we know you care about low tox living.
You want a clean home, but not at the cost of the planet.
Products that nourish your family and that don’t need to be hidden under the sink.
And that heavenly smell? It’s a joyful reminder of the beauty of nature.
Doing our bit

A word about packaging
Any business that makes stuff inherently creates waste.
We believe less is best.
That’s why we bottle our main products in beautiful amber glass.
You can reuse them and refill our bottles with one of our recyclable 1 litre PET bottles. Link to Refills page? It’s a win for the planet and a win for your bench.
Yes, PET is plastic.
After extensive research, it turns out PET is the most easily recyclable product we can currently use.
There are biodegradable plastic alternatives. But at the moment, they rely on your local council having the infrastructure to ensure they are composted correctly. Unfortunately, most councils currently don’t.
We are fully committed to finding a better solution than using plastic for our refills in the long run… so watch this space.
Our packaging boxes are made from FSC certified cardboard. We skip frills and ribbons for protective filling made from recycled paper. Your compost (or recycling bin) will love this!
