With Earth Day 2021 behind us, it’s easy to fall back into our same routines. It doesn’t mean we don’t care, it just means we’re human. As humans, we’re creatures of habit and if saving the planet isn’t part of our daily habits, it’s hard to keep up.

But what if you could take a simple task, a household chore, that is inevitable in your life and turn it into something good for our planet? Take laundry for instance.

Most of the popular commercial brands of detergents are manufactured using synthetic chemical compounds, making them very different from soap, which is made from natural substances like lye and plant saponins. These chemical-filled laundry detergents are added to dirty laundry and do their job of lifting stains before getting washed out, diluted, and sent down the drain with the wastewater from your washing machine. This is where the problem from our laundry for our environment begins.

Chemicals from the most popular detergents can have a far-reaching environmental impact, but there’s an alternative that doesn’t make you change your habits. Continue to do laundry as you normally would with Tru Earth.

I've studied biology and lived for 3 years on an off-grid permaculture farm. I love kitesurfing and keeping my body healthy and fit. Hence, I care so much about keeping our environment clean and being as zero waste as possible. Being a zerowasteman is a superpower everyone has inside of themselves, and I want to teach you how you can unleash it.
