Earth Breeze Eco Detergent Sheets Review
In the last couple of years, we have seen a huge amount of ecopreneurs (yep that’s a term, look it up) coming up with new solutions to battle our ever-growing plastic pollution problem.
I mentioned the guppyfriend bag to collect microfibers and I am yet to write about Planetcare a filter also for collecting microfibers but externally.
I was very excited when I heard about detergent laundry sheets and I even made a video about it. Now this one is from Tru Earth one of Earth Breeze’s competitors. Yes, they look and sound very similar but Earth Breeze is putting in big efforts to stand out.
Well if you compare their Instagram, Earth Breeze is smashing it. Yes, they make the eco sheets in China, unlike Tru Earth, which makes them in Canada but that doesn’t mean they are of low quality.

A big advantage of producing this great product overseas is the cost.
64 loads of Tru Earth’s laundry sheets are $25 when you subscribe, while Earth Breeze offers a whopping 40% off for a subscription bringing the price down to $12 for 60 loads. I guess it reduces the cost of making the laundry sheets overseas much more than in Canada. Both offer free shipping and a 100% money-back guarantee.
With that out of the way, let’s get into the nitty-gritty stuff.
So who the heck is Earth Breeze, and why should you try them?
Earth Breeze is an American company founded in 2020 in Miami, Florida.
They noticed the problem of 700 million wasteful plastic jugs ending in landfills every year, just like Tru Earth noticed that…
Not only are these big plastic jugs mainly filled with water, but they often have a list of ingredients that only a Harvard professor can decipher.
Sadly recycling is not working, and worldwide we only recycle 9%, the rest ends up in our ocean or gets incinerated, releasing more carbon dioxide, the main cause of climate change.
Did you know that Laundry detergent is among the top requested items at homeless shelters, homeless outreach, veterans organizations, women’s shelters, animal care shelters, and disaster relief?
With Earth Breeze, you can do your part from the comfort of your home.
I love that they are a 1% for the planet member and give back to charities that plant trees and do ocean clean-ups. Also, they choose to donate 10 washing loads to people in need for every pack purchased by you; pretty cool right?
Since the packaging is made from paper, they promote a more sustainable lifestyle by coming in zero plastic packagings, 100% biodegradable earth-friendly cardboard package. They are also animal test-free, and the free shipping they provide is offset; this means they donate money to make the shipments carbon neutral.
They are cruelty-free, bleach and dye-free and vegan, and animal friendly.
Why are we even talking about this, and how is it saving the planet?
First of all, washing our clothes has a huge carbon footprint that starts with using a lot of water to clean our clothes, how often we wash our clothes, and the quality of clothes. What do I mean by that?
Ever heard that our clothes shed millions of microfibers during each wash that end up in the environment and eventually on our plate?

Detergents are designed to make your clothes shiny, bling, bling new. At least that’s how they advertise for this stuff. And yes, all of them, except for the new detergent sheets, are heavily packaged in wasteful plastic jugs that litter the environment or end up in landfills.
So what is the alternative, you might be asking? Earth Breeze and others have come up with 100% biodegradable packaging, eliminating heavy plastic containers and liquid detergent.
It also reduces the amount of carbon produced by big trucks and cargo ships to transport plastic containers worldwide. Sure Earth Breeze still needs to use those to get their product send around the world, but it weighs a lot less and uses less CO2, and remember they are offsetting the cost by donating money to WE ARE NEUTRAL.

How to use Earth Breeze Laundry Sheets?
Earth breeze laundry sheets come in two versions:
The unscented and the scented
A single load requires one sheet. For tough stains, they recommend using two sheets.
The prize for 60 regular loads is $20 for a singular purchase or $12 when you subscribe. You can choose how often you would like the sheets delivered to your doorstep from 1 month to 4 months and cancel anytime.
Which washing machine can I use the detergent sheets in?
Drum roll, you can use them with all types of washing machines.
Front loader or Toploader, and even HE machines, they all work just fine.
The earth breeze eco sheets are designed to dissolve in cold or warm water thoroughly, and after removing the toughest stains, leave your load of laundry with a fresh scent while doing your part to save the environment.
Next, you might be wondering, but what about my sensitive skin or, what about my baby?
And Earth Breeze has the cleaning power without the harmful chemicals and is therefore sensitive to your skin and save for your babies clothes.
We have been using them to wash our baby’s cloth diapers, and they didn’t work so well for those. When your cloth diaper gets smelly it is often due to soap residue hence why we actually wash our diapers with sevens generation, which comes in a plastic jug.
Again zero waste is not about being perfect but doing your part and if you don’t need to wash cloth diapers you are good to go anyway.
I would highly suggest you get rid of your big plastic jugs and replace them with Earth Breeze Eco Sheets. You get a full load of clean laundry every time and if you have any questions they have the best customer service. They always respond to my emails in no time. So go and follow this link to get yourself some zero waste laundry sheets and save 40% when you subscribe.
