Day 60 – Used Environmentally Safe Laundry Soap
I used Dr. Bronner’s Soap (the peppermint kind to be exact) to do my laundry this morning.
On their web site it states that, “Dr. Bronner’s Soap are completely biodegradable and vegetable based.”
To sum up a PlanetGreen article on greening your laundry, regular laundry detergents are neither good for the environment or you. The phosphate in these soaps can screw up the ecology. When looking for eco-friendly detergents, look for labels that describe the soap as readily biodegradable and phosphate free, and made from vegetable based ingredients.
LighterFootStep advises to be on the alert of products like The GreenWashBall that are BS and claim to green your laundry.
