Dropps, $24

Composting is in and plastic is out, but if you care about the planet, you already knew that. You’ve also got to know about Dropps, the biodegradable, low-sudsing, detergent that would treat natural fibers right so it keeps your clothes looking better for longer. This detergent comes in dissolvable pods that are filled with plant-based ingredients. Dropps also provides baby detergent and dishwasher detergent, creating eco-friendly washes all across your home.

Be True to the Earth

Tru Earth, $20

Maybe pods aren’t your style, and maybe you’re still suffering PTSD from the Tide Pod Challenge that swept the nation years ago. Maybe, just maybe, Tru Earth detergent is right for you. Tru Earth created a laundry strip that almost resembles a dryer sheet. The only difference is, Tru Earth laundry sheets aren’t filled with harmful chemicals that are bad for you, your clothes, and the environment. And also they're for laundry and not softening your clothes. So yeah, other than being laundry-related strips, they're totally different.

Tru Earth replaces detergent with strips that are hypoallergenic, paraben- and phosphate-free, and vegan. One strip of Tru Earth equals one load of chemically-filled liquid laundry detergent. Just, ya know, without all the chemicals.
