Muc-Off has received a Design & Innovation Award for its Punk Powder, the world’s first plastic-free bike cleaner.
The Design & Innovation Award has become a benchmark achievement for the bike industry’s highest-performing products, with a select group of international journalists, professional test riders and industry experts spending more than 6000 hours during the testing process.
“Punk Powder is easy to mix with water and its excellent cleaning power will leave your bikes shining like new, even after the filthiest mud fight. If that isn’t enough, the price point means it’s cheaper than the equivalent 2 x 1L bottles of cleaner. So Punk Powder isn’t just good for the environment, but also your wallet!” , says the Design & Innovation Award.
Muc-Off’s Punk Powder contains readily biodegradable ingredients and uses 92% less packaging than the equivalent two 1L bottles of Nano Tech Cleaner. The fast-dissolving powdered formula is ready for use within seconds of water being added. It can be mixed in an old Muc-Off plastic bottle or in one of their aluminium Bottles for Life, for all the eco-warriors out there.
“We’re stoked to see the team’s hard work be recognised with this award win. Punk Powder was in development for a number of years, as we perfected the formula to ensure it delivered the legendary cleaning power Muc-Off is known for. We’re always pushing boundaries in innovation, particularly when it comes to sustainability, and this win is a celebration of that – It drives us to keep finding innovative ways to improve riders’ experiences!,” says Alex Trimnell, CEO of Muc-Off.
Back in 2020, Muc-Off launched their ambitious Project Green Initiative. Since then, the British brand has saved over 136 tons of plastic through packaging swaps and product innovations, and they’re fast on track for achieving their 200-ton end of year target.
“Whether it’s removing PTFEs from lubes, reducing plastic across the range, or developing a world first, sustainability is at the core of Muc-Off. Bagging a win at the Design & Innovation Awards 2022 is both testament to, and recognition of our significant developments in this area,” boasts Muc-Off.
