It’s a serious query, isn’t it? How to get your laundry clean affordably without adding to your carbon footprint. Plastics that don’t degrade, resources used needlessly to transport product… I know I’ve tried many different DIY laundry soaps, pods, powders, liquids and anything you can think of in an attempt to stop paying for water. Until, that is, I found TruEarth.
I was on Instagram when I first found TruEarth and became aware of the products they carried. It started simple… Laundry strips in scented, unscented and baby. They cut out the plastics, and they cut out the nasties and everything terrible for both you and the planet… and managed to keep a functional and excellent product.
TruEarth – Eco-friendly laundry detergent – all-natural and plastic-free!
Using TruEarth laundry strips the first time, I was a skeptic. It didn’t seem possible this little strip would clean the mess my kids made. Of course, being me, I had to use the worst clothing I could find as a test…and was very pleasantly surprised.
Bye mud. Bye, unidentified substance. So long grass stains and…man, how do these kids get so dang muddy?!
Best of all… Bye-bye smell from leaving the laundry in too long…my greatest enemy! I’m sure (or at least hoping) we’ve all left something longer than we should have. The smell that comes with that is most unpleasant, and TruEarth can save you from that as well.
If everyone switched to Tru Earth Eco-Strips, the annual eco-savings would be enormous:
Eliminate one billion plastic jugs (you read that right!), saving 700 million from going to landfills
Save truck fuel and CO2 equivalent to taking 27 million cars off the road for a day, or planting nine million trees

TruEarth Multi Surface Cleaner Strips
This time, when looking at the new products available, I noticed something incredible. They’ve recently added an eco-friendly spray cleaner! Let me tell you… My cupboards are white, all of them. My fridge, appliances, everything. White. Sometimes I dream about finding whoever decided white was suitable for a kitchen and give them a good solid smack! Even if I didn’t have eight little hands touching everything and eight cat paws who think they can go anywhere, it would be a disaster to clean.
Using the cleaner is easy – I used an old plastic spray cleaner bottle and followed the directions, making sure to measure everything correctly to get the specific dilution. Suddenly Mr. Miyagi comes to mind, “Wax on, wax off” because that’s how easy it was to clean the counters and cupboards. Once more, TruEarth knocks it out of the park, hitting its mark with a perfect balance of cleaning power and low impact.
If you haven’t tried these fantastic cleaning supplies, it’s high time you did. Not only can you feel great knowing you’re doing a small part (while they do a big one!) To make the world a better, cleaner place, you can also relax because they save you so much time and energy dealing with your chores.
Find me on Instagram and let me know if you’ve tried TruEarth’s products; I can’t wait to hear what you think!
