The problem with existing detergents…
Laundry detergents are often packaged in heavy plastic bottles of liquid, or in bulky plastic boxes of powder and gel pouches. These are heavy, messy and often very wasteful as a lot of the product ends up down the drain before the washing machine gets going. Or, you just end up using far too much of it which ends up being very expensive!
Not to mention the carbon footprint transporting these weighty detergents around the world has on our planet.
These laundry detergent sheets are a really small product, with a really big impact. We love them because:
Made from naturally-derived materials that are vegan and biodegradable
Not tested on animals
Comes in a fully recyclable Kraft paper box. Zero Plastic!
Super simple to use. Take a sheet and put it in the drum
Scented version uses natural flax to give it’s fresh scent
Comes in a pack of 64 sheets. Use a single sheet for a small load, use two sheets for a large load.
These sheets are of the 'Biological' variety of detergent cleaners
Packaging made from 100% recycled and recyclable brown Kraft paper.
We work with some of the UK’s most credible chemists to create our products, with each ingredient thoroughly examined and tested to ensure it causes as little harm to the planet as possible. We review each ingredient through an independent body. We ensure all ingredients score as low as possible (lower the better). For some reason beyond us, certain products [laundry powders and sheets] aren’t required to disclose all the ingredients they use, so many products will hide the fact that they contain ingredients they would rather you didn’t know about.
These laundry sheets are mostly made from naturally-derived ingredients:
