Everyone knows that washing on 30 degrees and drying your clothing naturally is far better for the environment than hot washes and tumble dryers.
But, did you know that even the detergent you use to clean your clothes has a negative impact on our planet and its ecosystem?
Laundry products cause a number of issues which we explain below.
The detergents that we use to clean our clothes destroy germs and keep us healthy, but they come at a high cost to the environment.
Perfumes, enzymes, and colourants are used in both detergents and fabric softeners, and these harmful chemicals often end up in bodies of water, endangering marine and plant life.
Your laundry products also come in plastic packaging that mostly ends up either in landfill or in the sea.
Whilst everyone does their bit and recycles plastic, globally, only 9% of all disposed plastic ends up being recycled.
Traditional detergents are also often tested on animals in a cruel and inhumane way.
You can have both effectiveness, sustainability and a product that doesn’t cost the earth with our friends at Smol.
