You Can Stop Frothing, Foaming in Lakes with This Simple Change!

Eco-friendly laundry products you'll love!

If froth and foam spewing lakes, which are sometimes on fire, give you reasons to worry—don’t just blame the industries and authorities. One of the most important causes of water body pollution is a common household item—your laundry detergent.

Toxins in your regular detergent

Commercially available laundry detergents are a deadly cocktail of toxic chemicals.

They contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate & Sodium Laureth Sulfate/ Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLS/ SLES), Phosphates, Formaldehyde, Chlorine Bleach, and Ammonium Quaternary Sanitizers, among others.

With these, you are exposing yourself to a higher risk of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, lung and kidney malfunctions, osteoporosis, allergies, and inflammation of the skin and eyes.

Here are a few available eco-friendly alternatives that you can easily adopt and keep your family and the environment healthy.

1. Chemical Free Stain Fighting Laundry Powder


A natural and probiotic-based laundry powder, that’s gentle and safe. Removes bad odour and is tough on stains and dirt.

2. Plant-Based Natural Liquid Laundry Wash

This ‘safe-for-the-skin’ laundry liquid is hand-made. It uses Coconut oil, Rice bran oil, Castor oil, Palm oil, Water, Salt and other plant-based surfactants.

3. Eco-Friendly Laundry Fragrance Booster

This contains essential oils and natural fragrances that keep your clothes smelling great all day long, and acts as a fabric softener.

4. Biodegradable Power Laundry Powder

Safe for both the skin and washing machines, this product is completely biodegradable, vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly.

5. Bio Liquid Concentrate

Made from natural ingredients like coconut, Karanja and soapnut, it requires a less amount of water to rinse off. Just dilute it overnight in water for use.

P.S: We think you’ll also love this range of great products like Air purifiers, Water softeners, Reusable bags and Composters for your home.
