In 1980, a cotton sweater factory was facing a huge problem. Every laundry detergent they used was stretching out their beloved yarn and causing it to change colors. Unable to source anything that would both clean their products and maintain the fabric's integrity, owners Jonathan Propper and his mother, Lenore Propper Schwartz, set to work creating something on their own. With an innovative, sustainable formula, Cot'n Wash came to life! Effective, but gentle on clothing and skin, it became a huge hit.

Years later, the sweaters are gone and Cot'n Wash has transformed from the classic liquid laundry detergent into a small, compact pod, known today as ‘Dropps'! The clean-revolution didn't stop there, though. Dropps recognized that in order to create real environmental change, businesses needed to use their platform to inspire and educate consumers.

Finally, detergent pods that aren't filled with harmful colorants or unnecessary ingredients, only effective, gentle formulas! Clean on, people! And feel good about it, too.

Powerful Cleaning, Safer Ingredients

What comes to mind when you think about the dishwasher or the washing machine in your home? Maybe the amount of water or energy they require? What about the products we use to help them run effectively? While often overlooked, household goods like dish detergent or laundry pods play a huge role in the impact humans have on the planet and its other inhabitants. In addition to creating an incredible cleaning product that we didn't even know we needed, Dropps also partners with Oceana, the largest international ocean conservation organization. Through science-backed policy reform, Oceana is effectively tackling major issues like overfishing, habitat destruction, and various other threats to marine biodiversity. Not only will your Dropps pods help reduce plastic and chemicals from entering our waterways (and soils and drinking water!), but they'll help support a leader in environmental change!
