My Laundry Room Makeover

I will never use fabric softener again. The same goes for over-packaged laundry detergent.

 As part of my sustainable journey, I have been transitioning ‘one room at a time’ to be plastic free, and over the holidays it was my laundry room.

I admit that I was skeptical. I used to work for Procter & Gamble selling Tide and Downey and have been a loyal user of both for most of my adult life. As much as I want to be eco-conscious, it can’t come at the expense of clean clothes.  

 Leading up to my laundry room plastic-free makeover, I researched and tested several eco-friendly brands before deciding on Tru Earth Laundry Eco-Strips.These strips do a great job cleaning clothes and are packed in a small, compostable package containing 32 loads. And I'm not the only happy user.  After 2700 on line reviews, this detergent has 4.9/5 rating!

Tru Earth also makes premium organic New Zealand Wool Dryer Balls which I cannot say enough about. Not only do they eliminate static from my clothing but they save me money. I estimate I will save $130 over the next 3 years and that is just in fabric softener I no longer buy. As the wool balls absorb moisture, they also reduce drying time and electricity. They come packed in a cotton drawstring bag that can be used many times over for bulk tea, candies or nuts. And when the balls no longer work, they make great toys for your dog.
