5 of the best eco-friendly laundry products

Lower your carbon footprint with these eco-friendly products

Eco-friendly cleaning is one of 2019’s hot topics as more and more people are turning to natural, vegan and cruelty-free products.

Over the years we’ve become increasingly aware of the sheer volume of chemicals found in the products we use, from food to clothes and even the detergent we use to wash our clothes. Additionally, a huge number of fashion choices can put a considerable strain on the environment by releasing microplastics into the UK’s waterways.

According to a YouGov study, eight in 10 Brits say they want to do everything they can to make their household more environmentally friendly, while 85% are already making necessary steps to go completely plastic-free.

Fortunately, there are multiple brands ensuring we can achieve this by developing eco-friendly products that are easily accessible and affordable.

Today, for example, supermarket giant Waitrose has launched the EcoEgg, a refillable, earth-friendly laundry product.

It is the first UK supermarket to launch such a product, which can be used for up to 70 washes, last for over 10 years and costs just £9.99 - putting an end to weekly detergent spends and using single-use plastic detergent bottles.

The egg-shaped case is dermatologically tested and has been awarded the Allergy Friendly Product award by Allergy UK thanks to its non-biological mineral pellet based washing system, which contains no petrochemicals, enzymes, bleaches, phosphates, parabens, palm oil or microplastics.
