Over the last few years, I’ve been working toward how to reduce plastic pollution. Specifically our family’s waste, plastic consumption, and switching to Eco-friendly and non-toxic products.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m always doing laundry and there are only 3 of us! Kind Laundry is the eco-friendly and non-toxic laundry I was looking for.
Everything from their poly mailers to the packaging and the actual product itself is either compostable, recyclable, and biodegradable.
Made with only 4 simple plant-derived and biodegradable ingredients (mostly Coconuts) their sheets contain no harsh chemicals, yet still, harness the strong cleaning power of traditional laundry detergents.
Kind Laundry is based in Canada and is an eco-conscious company championing a plastic-free life. They are on a mission to eliminate over 1 million single-use plastic laundry detergent jugs, one load at a time.

Small changes can make a positive impact. What’s the impact of changing one shirt to organic cotton? Bringing your own bag to the store? You could compare it to switching to energy-efficient light bulbs or turning off the faucet as you brush your teeth. Remember even the smallest changes add up.
