Natural, eco-friendly laundry products are a eco household essentials and a daily necessity when it comes to a natural, eco-friendly laundry routine. Not only is using natural, vegan, chemical free, eco-friendly laundry products better for our health and home, they are also kinder to our planet.
It does get overlooked but commercial washing powder, stain remover, fabric conditioner, dryer sheets, laundry boosters, fabric softener, whitening gels and powders, detergent, and bleach- all use a cocktail of harmful and unnatural ingredients to get the job done. Chances are that whatever you pick up from the supermarket shelves in the laundry aisle, will be packed full of all sorts of unpronounceable nasties that can easily be replaced with natural, eco friendly, sustainable alternatives.
What many of us do not realise is that not only can these ingredients cause rashes, allergies, irritation and respiratory issues, but they also have a negative ecological impact on the world around us. As is often the case with shampoo and conditioner, soap, and other household cleaning products, we don’t consider what is in them and what happens to these chemicals when they go down the plughole. In many cases, this polluted water ends up in nature, killing marine life and plants, and even ending up coming back through our taps. This systematic poisoning of our environment cannot continue and thee microplastics and chemicals released due to humans wash their clothes is one of the single biggest contributors.
Thankfully there are other natural, sustainable, eco-friendly options. Humans have come a long way from scrubbing clothes on a wooden board using a soap made from animal fat and ash and there are a number of natural, eco alternatives that don’t include using poisons and toxins. Today, the eco friendly, natural, vegan ingredients used in certain eco-friendly laundry products are just as effective as their chemical counterparts and they are capable of getting the job done without having disastrous consequences on our planet.
