Our Picks Of Eco-friendly Laundry Detergents
A hot topic in recent years has been (and very much still is) eco-friendly ways of living. Odds are you’ve already made conscious changes to your lifestyle as a result of this, such as buying less single-use plastics, eating more locally produced foods, and trying to buy refills rather than brand new products.
These are all great efforts, but what about your laundry detergent? Perhaps you’ve already got your eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging nailed down, but it’s equally important to consider the actual contents.
