A funny thing happened on the way to the laundry room. We quickly discovered the whole Dropps movement is great for the planet. Inside, the eco-friendly laundry formula has been approved by the EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) program, which recognizes formulas with safer chemistry. We have also removed all of the water from the formula making it so concentrated that we can put the liquid detergent in a water soluble film. The formula itself is 100% biodegradable, and the detergent is enzyme-free, NPE-free, chlorine-free, phthalate-free, phosphate-free, and safe for septic tanks.
Outside, by putting the detergent in pre-measured pacs we are able to ditch the detergent jug entirely thereby reducing the plastic used in packaging the product and the energy that goes into shipping it. For example, if we compare Dropps with traditional laundry detergent, the same amount of wash loads can be shipped in 1 truck carrying Dropps versus 3 trucks carrying traditional jug detergent. The space reduction extends into the home. Since the product is so lightweight and space efficient, it takes up much less space and is inexpensive to ship.
We’ve taken this one step further and teamed up with TerraCycle® to create an innovative recycling solution for its packaging, making Dropps a 100% zero waste liquid laundry detergent. TerraCycle converts the Dropps pouch material into unique products. For each empty Dropps pouch received, your collection location will earn two TerraCycle points that can be converted to cash for the charity or school of your choice. Shipping the empty pouches back to TerraCycle is free. Sign up for the Dropps Laundry Detergent Pouch Brigade today!
