Tru Earth Laundry Strips – Review

It was probably when I got pregnant with Brooks that I started to take a more serious look into the products that were coming into our home. When I first had Pearce I was so focused on just being a good mom, and make sure he was hitting all the mile stones, I never considered that products that were coming into our home weren’t good.

Last year during the Covid Quarantine, I started to spend more time focusing on how products I buy affected the environment. I wanted to learn about where are food came from, what actually happened with products once I put it in my recycling bin, and how I could make small changes to improve the environment.

During this time I was introduced to Tru Earth Laundry Strips, I think my favorite thing about the strips was that it came in a cardboard box, and that I didn’t have to measure! Something I’ve always hated when doing the laundry – other than actually doing the laundry is having to measure. So when I found out you just put the strip into the washer it seemed to good to be true. But it wasn’t, you put strip in and it dissolved, no residue was left on our clothes and it smelt great.

In a front load washer you rip up and place into the detergent slot. Or place in the drum before clothes.

There are so many great features about the strips, before you even talk about how it actually cleans your clothes and leaves them smelling fresh.

  1. The actual package takes up very little space – unlike a jug or box of other detergents.
  2. All their packaging is recyclable.
  3. The ingredients are safe and eco friendly, phosphate free, biodegradable, hypoallergencic, and 1, 4-dioxane free

This time around we also got their eco friendly produce bags which I love, because they are super easy to wash and dry, they come with multiple sizes so it is easy for you to fit all your goodies. I also love that I am no longer using the plastic store produce bags and am in turn using less plastic. The produce bags are machine washable for easy reusing.

If you are looking to reduce your waste, use more eco-friendly product or generally just want to give the eco-laundry strips a try I suggest you do. You will not be disappointed, and you will be helping the environment. Check them out online, on Instagram and on Facebook.

Thanks
