Climate Team Green Tip:
Purchase Detergent Strips for the Laundry

Reducing plastic waste will greatly reduce pollution in our soil, air and water. Luckily there are a number of easy ways we, as individuals, can reduce our plastic waste.  Here’s an easy tip for laundry detergent purchases.

  1. You could purchase laundry sheets or strips instead of plastic jugs. A tiny 4” x 2” strip will do an entire load.  These strips are not expensive, have zero waste, are eco-friendly cleaning power, lightweight and tiny.  Members of the UUCC Climate Crisis Team tried TruEarth Eco-Strips and they worked great!
  2. You could also purchase detergent in cardboard packaging.  Although this may involve higher shipping costs to stores and takes up more space, it’s preferable to plastic containers.
