When I first went "zero waste," I made my own laundry detergent. It's easy to do, yet super time consuming to grate soap. I think bought liquid soup in bulk. Again easy to do... yet this option was a bit messy when filling up at the store. Laundry pods are the best solution for me. They are mess-free and still support a low/zero waste lifestyle. Plus, I really think they clean better than what I was using previously.
I love using the laundry pods. They are so easy to use, I love having no plastic waste not having to lug a huge bottle of detergent home. Thanks for selling this product.
My clothes always feel fresh and clean with this detergent. I hate how over powering the smell of conventional clothing detergents are this one is just right. Highly suggest.
Love this product! I'll put a few drops of lavender or eucalyptus essential oils in each of these and it provides such a nice smell to our clothes without the added chemicals and dryer sheet waste! Thank you Eco Collective, these are great!
I have a front load dryer and using this helped reduce the static and I haven’t had to run the dryer twice so far for my normal loads. This is really great on for use on towels.
Works great, haven't seen any fuzz or shedding, doesn't she'll like burnt plastic like the, you know, plastic ones. Definitely heavier though, expect some thunking on light loads.
I found these after I got tired of going to the coop to fill up a big jug of laundry detergent from the bulk section, which always ended up being slow and messy. I was intrigued by these when I saw them on the shelves of Eco Collective so I got a box and gave them a try, and wow am I glad that I did!! At the moment these pods are the only thing I will use to do laundry with, they are so compact and portable which is great because I have o go to a laundromat. Plus, being the self-contained pods that they are, there is no mess at all! I also got my mom hooked on them, she says that with these pods laundry has never been so simple.
I love the minimal scent how easy the pods are to use. I appreciate how earth friendly the product and packaging is. I will definitely continue to purchase your products. Thank you!
The pods a great. There is no drop in the cleanliness and smell from the last detergent I used. And, I know I'm limiting my waste to society.
These worked well for me. I appreciate the scent (which didn't trigger my asthma) and how powerfully effective these little pods are. The packaging is minimal, too, just a small cardboard box. I will be buying more of these.
So much easier than the DIY detergent I was making before to live low waste and they work just as well as my old chemical-laden commercial pods!
I had been searching for a lower waste, plastic-free laundry detergent. I'm not sure if this is 100% plastic free given the picture of the bulk container, however, since it sounds like they re-use these that is good enough for me and far better than the plastic laundry jugs I had been buying. When researching other laundry powder options I saw a common complaint was white flecks left behind on clothes so I was a little worried about that. I am happy to report that this product did not have that problem for me - I washed black pants on cold delicate cycle in my HE washer and air dried with no residual powder spots in sight!
Overall, really happy with this detergent. I wish the fragrance stayed a little stronger post wash, but otherwise, it’s perfect.
I think we bought the lavender scent. It smells lovely going in the wash, but the scent isn't strong enough to be noticeable by the time the clothes come out of the dryer, which is my preference. We will definitely be using this again!
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.
The absorption of this tiny cloth is crazy!
I only bought one for me as I bought others to give us gifts. I’m super excited to gift these now that I know how useful they are. I used mine for wiping down the counters and it left no streaks. I washed dishes with it, dried dishes, cleaned my fridge. They are much easier to use than a dishrag because of the size. All I had to do between jobs was rinse it out in a little soapy water. I’ll be replacing all of my dishrags with these eventually. Highly recommend it!
Love ‘em. Fun patterns. Great gifts. Thanks!
I use these all the time instead of sponges, rags, or paper towels for wiping counters and surfaces. They don't smell, they stay sturdy, and they can be cleaned and sanitized to extend their life even further.
I love these for mopping up spills, drying dishes, and cleaning countertops. They seem much more sanitary than dish/cleaning rags and don't carry a musty smell.
I am so glad you guys have bulk liquid dish soap now! Makes me so happy to refill the last plastic container of dish soap that I purchased! Wonder how long the container will hold up . . . 10, maybe 20 years :-)
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.
I received the package quickly since the outlet is in Seattle where I live. The brushes are a good quality but shorter than I expected. Overrall though, I'm happy with the experience.
I was excited to find this brush, but unfortunately it broke where the wood connects to the metal after less than a month of use. Thankfully it wasn't too pricey!
Love the ethical and sustainable manufacturing of this product so it's worth it even if it's not 100% perfect! The bristles are definitely firm, so it can double as a scouring material if you need! But also a bit harsh on plastic bottles (I bet they'll soften with use though), so just need to be delicate or it will scratch them up (washing the inside of my Nalgene bottle, for example). I also wish that there was more material along the wirey bottom of it because I can see why other comments felt it was a bit flimsy. But if you're delicate with it, I think it will hold up nicely! Gets the job done for sure! I use with a solid bar of castile soap and ta da! Vegan friendly, palm free, and ethical products are the move in 2020 y'all!
This brush is so useful for getting inside jars and containers with small openings. Because the bristles are so stiff, it cleans really well. My only complaint is that it bends really easily. (I did not find that this has impaired my ability to clean with it in any way though).
This has been a great brush to have in the sink. The bristles are nice and stiff, so it works really well -- even on things that aren't bottles!
These un paper towels work great as napkins or “paper” towels, either in the kitchen or bathroom. I love them and have made them a standard present for many people!!
Only been using them a couple days now but love the quick and easy clean-up they allow for. I've mainly used them for cleaning countertops and wiping up small spills. But so far so good! I imagine we'll invest in more in the future.
I can use them for everything in the kitchen. I love that I can ring them out and rinse them off in the sink if I need to!
So cute and work great! They wash very well too.
These are great! Better quality then expected. I was able to wrap them around my current paper towel holder and it works great. Will be ordering more colors soon.
I have this one and then 2 other ones I bought elsewhere. This one is the best one yet. It's bigger and higher quality.... Doesn't feel like it's gonna unravel. I definitely recommend
Easiest way to save small pieces of soap! Quality is as pictured and described!
I've really liked this pouch so far. I didn't know what to do with my small soap pieces because they were too small to use but I also didn't want to waste them. This pouch dries hard if you keep the soap in it after each shower/bath, but softens when wet.
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!
