Some people think that it requires lot of time, effort and money to make a home eco-friendly. With Cleanomic, this is a thing of the past.

These products are also produced in collaboration with communities, organisations, business and brands in the green and sustainable niche.
Cleanomic stands for clean and economic, and it is the result of founder Denia Isetianti Permata’s concern about Indonesia’s rampant plastic waste.
“As a working mom I relied on online shopping to buy household needs, but I was disturbed by the amount of plastic in my purchase, even for a small item, like the sticky tape, bubble plastic and plastic to wrap the item itself. I then thought about what I can do to not harm the earth with these plastic wastes? Then I built a business that does not damage the environment. This business was first started from Instagram and then developed to an e-commerce,” explained Denia.
