Yes of course – that sort of generosity will certainly get us to our goal faster than we’re planning. All you need to do is call Craig, our business guy on 021 590 326 and he will sort you out.
Glad you asked! It is quite simple. Call Craig, our business guy on 021 590326 and he will contact someone high up in your company to make things happen.
Yes. All our products are manufactured by Terry Morris’s company called Chemical Solutions. He is a major supplier of eco and commercial cleaning products. Terry follows all the rules and all their eco products are tested and certified.
Yes. All our bottles are made from 100% recycled NZ milk bottles. Depending on the batch run, some will be greener, some bluer and some more yellowie brown. That’s because the milk bottle lids will influence the colour. Sorry about the colour, as all that’s white is not 100% eco! That’s the ugly truth about our beautiful bottles!
We did contemplate using virgin white plastic. It would have looked nice but when we found out all the white plastics and those bottles with beautiful pictures printed on shrink wrapping are not eco or recycled, we looked for alternatives and Dean our partner came up with the ultimate solution. We believe that to be ethical we must put our products into 100% recycled plastic bottles and not pretend we are.
All WILL&ABLE cleaning products are made at our partner Terry’s factory, just ten minutes’ drive from our factory in South Auckland. He delivers it to us in large 1,000 litre containers. When we have finished a container, Terry collects it and refills with new product. We then do the rest of production at our factory in Auckland.
No not all. Our management and supervisors are able bodied. Our staff who work at WILL&ABLE are somewhere on the mental and physical spectrum that makes them suitable for employment. They are a great bunch of people and their work ethics are simply amazing.
In our parent business, Altus Enterprises, our disabled workers get paid through a combination or benefits, subsidies and a contribution from the profits of Altus operating activities. There are constraints as to how many people can work at Altus as we depend on government subsidies and most of our workers have a minimum wage exemption.
The exciting thing about WILL&ABLE is that we are looking to be free from Government intervention by paying all our disabled workers the minimum wage, as well as giving them an equity stake in the business that they are responsible for building.
Yes. We are going to monitor the growth of the project and bring on more workers with disabilities. We have an aggressive growth forecast that sees us employing an additional 90+ workers after 2 years.
We also are planning a profit share scheme for the workers and we will teach them basic business skills. It’s never been done before but we will give it a try and involve them like any able bodied person would be in the real world.
YES. We guarantee our eco products will work effectively. Obviously if you abuse and use them for the wrong reasons, we can’t guarantee. Based on honesty and good will we will replace and give you your money back.
We are a social enterprise and we are looking to make money like any business. The difference is our profits go back to support workers with disabilities and will help develop more products.
We charge about the same as other eco products.
We provide high performing products and made reordering super simple.

Yes. We can confirm that the products are septic tank safe so fear not!
We endeavor to process orders as speedily as we can which includes same or next business day shipment. Delivery depends on where in the country you are. For Auckland orders it should take 1 business day. Please allow 48 hours additional in areas outside of Auckland.
As many as you want! Initially we want you to order the full set of 5 that gets delivered in the ecoGiftBox. However, if you just want to order 1, or more of any product, that’s fine. We will pack and deliver whatever you ask for. Remembering the more you order at one time the more jobs for people with disabilities we can create.
No. We exist to provide work for people with disabilities and pay them well. If you really want a cheap product that’s discounted, then there are plenty to choose from in the supermarkets. We are a Social Enterprise trying to do good.
