Earth Month: Sustainable Living
The month of April usually brings thoughts of Spring, warmer weather, cleaning and organizing, tulips and Easter/Passover for people. For us it is the start of EARTH Month and a chance to reevaluate our families lifestyle and make sustainable, realistic changes that will reduce their carbon footprint. We are NOT joking. We are both a huge proponents for saving the planet, recycling, using clean cruelty free products, drive fuel efficient and/or electric vehicles, and eating mostly vegetarian/plant-based in the hopes of combating the effects of global warming. Doesn't it make you feel good to do something good for the environment!?...don't litter and be sure to recycle you wine bottles :)
Last year we wrote a piece on how to make six sustainable simple swaps that can make a huge difference in saving the environment. Read all our easy tips and tricks! This year we are adding a seventh by switching up our laundry routine with Earth Breeze. If your households are anything like ours you do several loads of laundry every week (or day). We never really thought during the tedious task of washing, drying, folding, hanging and putting away how our laundry could be impacting the planet. Like most people we assumed our plastic laundry detergent jugs were being recycled, but did you know that 700,000,000 end up in landfills and oceans every year?! In 2015, only 9% of America's plastic was properly recycled.
So why should you make the switch to Earth Breeze? You may be surprised what a difference your laundry can make!
Eliminate Plastic Waste
The creators at Earth Breeze saw how much plastic was used in packaging and knew they could create a powerful product without causing harm to the planet. The packaging and product has ZERO plastic and the sleeve is biodegradable leaving virtually no waste. Liquid detergent leaves a residue in plastic jugs that makes it almost impossible to properly recycle even when you believe you have the best intentions. Every time you use an Earth Breeze product you are reducing plastic waste keeping our earth and oceans clean!
Giving Back & Cleaning Up
Since 2020 Earth Breeze has been able to donate 100,000 loads of laundry detergent to distressed and displaced families in need. When you purchase Eco-Sheets you participate in their Buy One, Give Ten program. This program allows the consumer to choose where their contributions goes. Just select the partnership of your choice at checkout. Each purchase of Earth Breeze Eco-Sheets allows the company, at no cost to the consumer, to donate 10 loads of laundry. Since starting the program, in addition to donating loads of laundry, they have dedicated their efforts and funds to ocean clean-ups, native tree-planting, and offsetting carbon emissions. Earth Breeze is also cruelty free and vegan. It is easy to support and partner with a company that is compelled to act with love an kindness and NEVER tests on animals.
Organization & Storage
If you have been following us for a while you know we are a sucker for anything that is compact, easy to store, takes up less space, and keeps us organized! The size of Earth Breeze Eco-Sheets alone has us as lifelong customers. One eco-sleeve of Earth Breeze does about 60 loads of laundry while the standard liquid detergent does about 63. The number of loads is extremely comparable, but the size difference is astronomical. We can store 10xs more eco-sheets than plastic jugs in the same space. And the best part is no more bulky containers filling up our recycle bins! We love being able to keep our (tiny) laundry spaces neat and organized with Earth Breeze.
Why We Love Eco-Sheets
Is there anything worse than cleaning up spilled liquid laundry detergent? We don't think there is anything harder to clean up and we've spilled a few more times than we'd like to admit. With Earth Breeze Eco-Sheets there is NO MESS, NO SPILLS, NO IMPOSSIBLE CLEAN UPS!
Eco-Sheets are gentle on any skin and hypoallergenic. We trust Earth Breeze products on all our families laundry; including our kids. There is no need to have two separate detergents because Earth Breeze does it all from baby items to extra messy soiled loads to delicates to bedding. It may be shocking to learn Eco Sheets deliver a powerful clean. Through many trials, research, and development they have created the World's BEST laundry detergent. Earth Breeze is eco-friendly and will still remove the toughest stains with dehydrated sheets while liquid detergent can be up to 90% water! Eco-Sheets are paraben, phthalate, phosphate, bleach and dye free so you get all that powerful clean without harmful chemicals.
With two laundry Eco-Sheet options you have a choice between fragrance free or fresh scent. Eco Sheets dissolve within seconds in hot or cold water. They work in all machines, HE included. You can even hand wash with Eco Sheets. Meeting the standard for septic and greywater; Eco Sheets are concentrated, low-sudsing, and biodegradable.
Another thing we love about Earth Breeze Eco-Sheets is how lightweight and compact they are. We loath going to the store to buy liquid detergent because they are bulky and HEAVY. It is almost impossible to not spill when they are newly open and are always difficult to lift/carry until they are empty. And you can never use all the product because of the plastic jug design creating even more waste. Earth Breeze is conveniently delivered to your door, shipping is always FREE, and shipments will be carbon offset. Eco-Sheets are easy to purchase and perfect for anyone with limited mobility that has difficulty lifting heavy objects.
Since starting Earth Breeze the company has dedicated their efforts to reducing waste, giving back to make a difference and empowering other's to do the same! Switching to Earth Breeze has been simple, affordable, and stress-fee! For only 20 cents a load you can put your mind and wallet at ease. One sleeve of Earth Breeze can do 60 loads of laundry. That is comparable to a standard size of liquid detergent. Since making the swap from liquid detergent plastic jugs to Earth Breeze eco-friendly sheets we have made an everyday chore a positive force for good. YOU can eliminate plastic waste today to help create a better tomorrow! Small acts now make BIG future impacts.
