Eco Nuts

Nothing feels better than fresh, clean laundry. But what if the products you're using are actually dirty? Most conventional laundry detergents are hiding irritating ingredients masked by the cover-all word, fragrance. Likewise, while dryer sheets can help clothes stay soft and fresh-smelling, they typically contain toxic chemicals, that cling to fabric and vent into the air we breathe. Plus, being single-use is hardly a green choice!

After years of struggling with skin sensitivities themselves, Mona Weiss and Scott Shields were frustrated by the lack of transparency in laundry products. This led them on a journey to seek out cleaning products that were safe, trustworthy, and eco-friendly. Their inability to find anything they felt great about inspired the couple to come up with something entirely new. In 2009, they created Eco Nuts, a laundry company that turns to special dried berries to form their super gentle detergents. These berries come straight from trees in the Himalayas and contain a natural surfactant called saponin.

Crazy About Clean

Eco Nuts is dedicated to creating products with high quality ingredients that are effective, eco-friendly, and ethically-sourced. There are no harsh odors, harmful chemicals, or fake fillers, so you can rest assured that the articles closest to your body (clothing, bed sheets, towels) are truly clean and safe. This also means there are no destructive ingredients washing down the drain either. Plus, their packaging is thoughtfully made with sustainable, easy-to-recycle materials, like cardboard and aluminum. No plastic! Eco Nuts also uses low-impact machinery in an effort to reduce their water use when creating their lifestyle products. The soap berries themselves are sourced from Nepal, where they are grown in the wild and never subjected to pesticides or fertilizers. In fact, all of Eco Nuts products are USDA Certified Organic. This seal helps to ensure that farming techniques work to maintain the health of the soil and surrounding ecosystems. Eco Nuts berries are harvested once a year by employees that are paid Fair Trade wages in safe and equitable working environments. Their wool dryer balls offer an excellent alternative to dryer sheets and plastic PVC dryer balls, softening clothes and reducing dryer time. They are also Certified Cruelty Free! The wool is sourced from New Zealand where extensive Country laws and regulations ensure that the shearing process is completely painless for the sheep. Eco Nuts is your sustainable and safe solution to conventional laundry troubles!
