...and found some troubling issues
You've probably never looked, but google a few of the ingredients on the back of your laundry detergent and you may find they contain some pretty toxic chemicals. These are having a direct affect on both you, and the environment. And these are the ones that are listed, the chemicals which go into creating that strong fragrance you often get, are not even required to be disclosed.
The more we looked into it, the worse it got...the plastic problem
Prior to researching packaging and plastics, we were under the impression that our recycling endeavours were making a significantly bigger impact than it transpires they are - to say the least. We discovered that the problem with the disposal of plastic is colossal.
For example, we had no idea that even if we are all gold-star recyclers, this by no means ensures that our plastic waste is recycled. For example, we had no idea that hundreds of thousands of tons of good (and bad) plastic is actually shipped overseas, often in developing countries, where most of it ends up in landfill or illegally incinerated or dumped, thereby finding its way into the environment.
Toxic detergent and plastic packaging re-thought
Our revolutionary, ultra-condensed laundry sheets represent a completely natural, plastic free way to do your laundry. There is no compromise on cleaning power or price, no mess or bulk, and no concerns about little ones finding capsules. Better still, we'll post 40 washes straight through your letter box at a frequency of your choosing. Every part of our packaging is 100% recyclable and compostable.
