Sustainable Swap to Laundry Detergent Sheets

Better-for-the-planet sustainable swaps for Great Big Green Week!

The sun is shining (on and off!), the birds are chirping, and guess what? It's Great Big Green Week June 8th-16th – the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. This year's theme is about finding swaps that are better of us and the planet. 

But how can your everyday cleaning routine contribute to a greener future? Here at Simple Living Eco, we're here to show you how the Great Big Green Week can be a powerful force for good!

Why 'Green' Matters, Even in the Laundry Room and Under the Sink

Our laundry and cleaning habits have a bigger impact on the environment than you might think. Traditional cleaning products often contain harmful and harsh chemicals that can pollute waterways and harm wildlife. Additionally, single-use plastic containers contribute significantly to the plastic waste crisis.

The good news is, there's a simple way to make your cleaning and laundry routine more sustainable during the Great Big Green Week and beyond! Here's how switching to plant-based/concentrated/plastic eliminating laundry and cleaning products makes a difference:

  • Plant Power: We ditch the harsh chemicals and embrace the power of plant-based ingredients. These natural alternatives are just as effective at cleaning while being gentler on the environment and your skin.
  • Plastic Free : Say goodbye to mountains of plastic detergent and cleaning bottles. Try our plastic-free, refillable and concentrated formulas, which helps to reduce packaging waste and minimise plastic footprints.
  • Water Warriors: Our precious water resources deserve protection. Our products are formulated with kinder to the planet and aquatic life ingredients, or are biodegradable, minimising their impact on water quality.

Small Steps, Big Impact: Your Eco-Friendly Cleaning and Laundry Action Plan for Great Big Green Week

Ready to join the Great Big Green Week and make some swaps? Here are some simple yet impactful swaps you can make this week (and beyond!):

  1. Embrace the Power of Concentrates: Ditch the bulky bottles and opt for concentrated eco-friendly laundry sheets and cleaning solutions. You'll use less product, save money and reducing plastic waste. Try our Laundry Sheets, Concentrated Multipurpose Cleaners and Concentrated Washing up Liquid.
  2. Refill Revolution: Look for products that offer refillable options like our Concentrated Multipurpose Cleaners, Fragrance Boosters and our Powder to Gel Washing Up Liquid Refills which can be used to refill any bottle you already have. This allows you to reuse existing containers, minimising plastic waste further.
  3. Vinegar Power: This kitchen staple is a natural cleaning powerhouse. Vinegar is great for everyday tasks like tackling limescale or cleaning windows.
  4. Embrace the Power of Baking Soda: Another household hero. Baking soda is a fantastic natural deodoriser and can be used for cleaning carpets or tackling oven grime.
