Unfortunately, today, there aren’t a lot of options when it comes to buying household products that are good for you and your family, but for nature and our planet too.
But, brands like the Seventh Generation are trying to change this and offer sustainable and eco-friendly products that won’t harm you or our home-planet Earth.
They’re making liquid detergent that’s vegan and packaged in recycled cardboard and paper bottles.
How can cardboard and paper hold liquid? Here’s how…
Let’s learn more about this amazing brand!
Vegan Liquid Detergent Packaged in Cardboard Bottle
You probably think that a cardboard bottle is the last thing that can hold a liquid detergent; however, you will now better after you learn what this company succeeded doing.
Namely, their sustainable detergent is made using all-natural ingredients and it’s stored in recycled cardboard bottles.
The concentrated laundry detergent comes in a neat paper bottle that’s been acquired through recycling paper, a material that doesn’t hold a very good reputation when it comes to containing liquid materials.
But, the company has made it a viable packing by moulding it into a rigid bottle- it’s 30 percent recycled newspaper and 70 percent recycled cardboard.
The bottle is durable and strong and available in two scent options- one is the free and clear and the other is the geranium blossoms and vanilla.
Good for You, Good for the Planet
The detergents are made in the US and are also hypoallergenic, free of chemicals, dyes, and fragrances, and are USDA certified bio-based product.
The detergent is held inside thanks to the plastic pouch. The innovative bottle was made in collaboration with Ecologic Brands- a company that makes sustainable packaging.
The company notes that this bottle uses 66 percent less plastic than the conventional 100 oz. 2X detergent bottles.
It’s good for you, good for the planet! Unfortunately, today- we’re swimming in a pool of plastic- we produce around 300 million tons of plastic garbage per year or same as the weight of the whole human population.
How to Dispose of Your Cardboard Liquid Detergent Bottle?
When you’ve used all of the detergent, you should take off the bottle’s cap, pop open the shell, and take out the pouch.
All three items need to be placed in the recycling bin. The shell can be composted.
This laundry detergent available in two scents is definitely a beneficial way to minimize the waste we produce.
The empty bottles go through a specific spin cycle and are turned into new bottles constantly until the fibers wear out, around 7 times.
