Home-cleaning brand bio-home has been honoured with a 2016 Green Good Design Award for three products from its eponymous eco-friendly range of cleaning solutions. The products are Liquid Laundry Detergent for regular clothes, Liquid Laundry Detergent for delicates and Floor Cleaner.

The Green Good Design Awards, which were given out last month, are presented by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.

The awards honour products and companies for ecologically friendly and sustainable designs. Other categories include urban planning and landscape architecture; and green transportation.

The bio-home range received the award in the Green Product/Graphic Design category for its use of biodegradable and renewable plant- based active ingredients. The brand – made by Lam Soon Group, which also sells the Knife Cooking Oil – does not test on animals.

There were two Singapore winners in the architecture category. Architect Chang Yong Ter won for his 2014 bungalow in Cornwall Gardens that has an abundance of plants, a pool and verandahs.

On the property, two 12-storey L-shaped blocks surround three green squares. The first square features a long tree-lined driveway, the second square is dotted with large forest trees and the third square opens up directly to Goodwood Hill, giving residents a good view of the greenery.
