It's really nice to find soaps that don't have palm oil and options for ones without essential oils. I have very sensitive skin and am so glad this soap works well and doesn't make me itch. I bought it in hopes that it would help moisturize my hair and body when I have issues with dryness. It has been working perfectly for that issue and is a generous size. I suspect it'll last a long time since it's not super soft and drains well. It'd be great to have other unscented flavours as well, like maybe the lavender one without the essential oil, for example, or other ones where flower petals are used instead of essential oils. It also could be helpful to include the size in the description. I was unsure of how big/small exactly it would be.
This soap is great! Love that it's made locally too. It's not overly drying and doesn't leave a weird feeling on your skin afterwards like other soaps do. They're also so pretty and instagram-worthy if you're into that thing. I will continue to buy these! Worth the price for sure!
The rose/ylang ylang smells like heaven and it will make you want to shower even when you don't need to. The lemon poppy smells and lathers great, but it's a strong exfoliant. I have dry skin so I only use it once a week.
Second time ordering soap from Eco Collective and I’m so impressed. This soap smells amazing while not giving me a headache. It lasts forever! My partner and I both use it and it lasted us three months. 10/10. I now have one for the shower and the sink.
I love these soaps-- I got one for each of our bathroom sinks and they're both really nice. I especially love the smell of the blue clay and patchouli. They're very smooth and suds up very nicely. I will be repurchasing when I run out of soap again.
I always appreciate that Eco Collective stocks local eco-concious brands that I likely wouldn't have heard of otherwise. Thank you for introducing me to Flourish Botanicals!
It’s hard for me to find bars of body soap that don’t leave a residue after I rinse off. This soap smells so good and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Definitely recommend!
I've had my handheld pot scrubber for less than a month now and I am concerned about the durability of this product. I store my brush upright and away from water as the use and care instructions dictate; however, the wooden handle is cracked near the bristles and the bristles keep falling out. I hope this is simply part of a break in process and the pot scrubber will last for months to come. The scrubber does tackle grease and burnt food extremely well and provides a great soapy lather!
Thanks so much for sharing your experience with this product! Your feedback is really useful - we'll be sure to pass it along to the manufacturer to improve the product in the future. There's certainly some fine-tuning that comes along with creating a durable biodegradable product!
Also - I realized upon reading your message that it might not have been clear in our original instructions that upright in this case means bristles pointing down, handle facing up! So I do want to clarify that in case you thought we meant bristles pointing upright, which could result in the wood near where the bristles attach to deteriorate more quickly from water, causing bristles to loosen or fall out.
I hope this helps! Feel free to email us if you have any additional questions/concerns!
Summer from Eco Collective
This scrubber is super effective especially on pans with burnt bits and a great replacement for steel wool/Brillo pads!
It’s super stiff at first but relaxes a bit after some use so works perfectly! Works great in tandem with the loofah
Works so well on hard to clean stuff and works great to hold suds from a bar of dish soap. Love it.
Great little scrubber! Super tough on stuff that's burnt/stuck on pots and pans.
I love these bags! This size is so versatile. I use it to store cut up vegetables, popcorn, nuts, leftover dinner. After using, I pop right in the dishwasher and it’s ready to use all over again.
This is the perfect little bag for days worth of snacks, compost on the go, and more! I use 1 or 2 of the bags almost daily and have quite a few in many fun colors. Very easy to clean, too.
Plus - my pack cam in a box/packaging that was formerly used for this companies laundry pods!
I love that EC thinks about the whole picture in it's approach to helping people consuming less
At first, I was concerned that the pods wouldn’t dissolve well and would leave that powdery residue all over my dishes, but I’m happy to report that is NOT the case! I actually think my dishes are even coming out cleaner than when I was using cascade. The only thing to be mindful of is to leave plenty of space in front of the detergent dispenser. I had a pan at an angle in front of it, and did find some undissolved powder under the dispenser. But since I’ve started loading the bottom rack a different way, I have not had any issues. So glad that I can make another staple in my home routine plastic-free!
Works well in our dishwasher. Really appreciate the plastic-free packaging
The pods do a great job of cleaning the dishes. They also limit the waste created from plastic packages surrounding other pods I used.
Been using these for a year and consistently impressed with their effectiveness.
Mine works perfectly. Unlike the other poster, mine is not sensitive at all and works great to dispense just the right amount of liquid. Maybe they got a bad one or something. I'm really happy that this is made in the USA as well. Love the amber colour. Shipped perfectly and with no problems, all without plastic. This company proves that you don't have to pack with plastic in order to ship glass and fragile items.
Works fine. No problems so far
These are great, except for the pump design. I filled mine up with liquid soap and every time I press the pump very gently, it still splatters everywhere. The pump is super sensitive!
I bought the 16 oz amber bottle. The pump works great. I use this for my moisturizing shampoo.
I had a couple amber dispensers from another brand's soap and wanted to find something reusable to match when we moved to a new home with more space. I ordered two of these pump bottles and they're great! Clean look, functional, chic- all I can ask for. Quick shipping and well packed.
I'm really happy with my purchase. The only thing I wish is that the sets came in different colors. Thank you for the quick service.
I love my straw tips, they are a perfect fit to my metal straws!
The process was seamless! Highly recommend this if you want to give someone the flexibility to shop the Eco Collective collection at their own pace.
It was a pleasant and easy experience to purchase a gift card. Highly recommended!
Easy, plastic-free bulk hand soap for refilling bottles. Lathers well, and the bergamot scent is lovely!
I absolutely love the ability to fill up my handsoap dispensers right at Eco Collective in non-Covid19 times . . . but just as easy was purchasing this same soap in a returnable glass jar (deposit to be refunded) and filling up dispensers at all the sinks around my house. Wonderful! And great quality soap as well!
I bought a couple of the stand-up bags along with the starter set. Really glad I got both. I find these very handy because, as the name implies, they stand up while you're filling them. They also stand up in the fridge, with their little windows facing forward so I can see all the stuff at a glance. They are thick enough that I put muffins inside, stacked, and froze them. Easy to open and grab one out to reheat.
They clean up easily, do the job better than the alternatives - what's not to love?
I've always tried to write out on paper what's in season and when. This wheel makes it so much easier and is much more comprehensive when I can't simply go to a farmers market. It's also very pretty and has me noticing many other fruits and vegetables that I didn't even know were local to the PNW. I've only had this for about a month but would never want to live anywhere without it.
The back of it also has loads of extra information about seasonality and when things are commercially available if the front doesn't have everything you need.
Mine is pinned up very simply with a thumbtack in drywall in my kitchen.
I always wanted to know what was in season monthly and this is the guide! I have it on the same hook as the wall calendar and can refer to it when shopping and planning the garden!
This was perfect for storing a small amount of hand lotion on the go. I wanted something that was reusable and easy to transfer from a bigger lotion bottle.
I was sad to find out this gum is only offered in the cane sugar version. Chewing sugary gum will cause serious dental issues over a few months. I like the eco friendly aspect and natural ingredients but if this could be offered in a birch-sourced xylitol version, it would have much more to offer. Cavities are no joke, so this gum is supposed to be healthy but it’s pretty risky!
Tastes great and love that it’s nearly zero waste :)
