Day 51 – From the day I started doing my own laundry, I have always used liquid detergent. Liquid detergent in a plastic bottle that I assumed was being recycled when I put it out with my recyclables. Well, I am learning that not everything is getting recycled and the best thing we can be doing is avoiding single use plastic. So, I was on the lookout for an alternative and I’m happy to report that there are many options. You can get laundry detergent in strips, pods and powder, just to name a few. Everyone will have their own preference and price point, but I decided to go with laundry powder. I purchased Meliora’s laundry detergent.
Here are just a few of the reasons I decided to purchase Meliora:
There are just 5 ingredients in their detergent and all 5 are people and environment friendly.
There product is plastic free, all the way down to the metal scoop.
Refills are packaged in paper bags, so you can refill your canister without purchasing a new one. You can also refill your canister at zero waste stores.
Meliora is a Chicago based company and I love to support local businesses.
