Compostable Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that can be composted in home systems or industrial facilities. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

End of Life

  • The Dropps pod membrane is a biodegradable, water soluble film made of polyvinyl alcohol. When the film dissolves and enters the water stream in microparticles, micro-organisms that commonly exist in nature break down the PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) to water and carbon dioxide. As many as 55 species of micro-organisms (including bacteria, yeasts and fungi) that are naturally present in water and soils are capable of breaking down PVA! Research has shown that in river water, PVAs take no more than 1 month to break down into their component parts.
  • Biodegradable product formula

Certifications

  • Dropps has been a leader in the eco-friendly laundry detergent world since 2008, when their laundry pods received the EPA Safer Choice certification! Safer Choice helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform and are safer for human health and the environment. To qualify for the Safer Choice label, a product must meet EPA's Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria!
  • Certified cruelty free by PETA

Earth Friendly Features

  • Traditional liquid dishwasher detergent pods are usually packaged in high density polyethylene plastic containers. 68% of these bottles are not recycled, and they contribute to the approximately 275 metric tons of plastic waste that goes into our oceans and waterways annually!

    Great for lazy me! Works in older models too

    claireloritz (verified owner)

    One of my biggest sustainability flaws is that I HATE doing dishes by hand. Plus, I just don’t feel like they’re properly hand-washed unless I use a rather excessive amount of hot water… The “hand-washing dishes saves water” argument does NOT apply to me. I’ve tried Dropps in two different models of dishwashers and they work exactly as they should either way. My current dishwasher is older so I can’t adjust temperature and whatnot; it still gets the job done properly!

    Currently renting, so the dishwasher is kind of old but that doesn’t stop these pods. No soap scum and leaves a nice scent. Come in a cardboard box that easily put away under the sink. Will buy again!

    Cleaning with a clean conscious

    scissors233 (verified owner)

    I got Dropps once I ran out of the Cascade dishwasher soap I was previously using. Dropps leaves less soap scum and removes grease just as well as the big brands. My favorite part is knowing I’m supporting a smaller company that uses sustainable practices at the industrial level.

    Half of my pods were broken

    woodjessicarose (verified owner)

    When I opened my box over half of the pods were broken and there was a mess of spilled dish powder everywhere. I sort through them and found the ones still intact and saved the dish powder. But, I’d bought these to save time, if I’d wanted dish powder I could purchase that cheaper… Will not purchase this product again. I’d purchased these in the past and not had this problem, so I was disappointed because they do clean well.

    I can’t believe how well these work, even in my hard water. For details: I don’t rinse any dishes completely clean, just mainly get off any solids. Sometimes stuff goes in with baked on crusties and this stuff takes most of that off, too. I’m ridiculously impressed. These are my new go-to.

    Before switching to Dropps, I was using a less sustainable pod and it wasn’t dissolving completely in my dishwasher. So, I was nervous I would have the same issue. But, that wasn’t the case! Dropps dissolves completely and I have had no issues. After 3-4 months, I am still on my first box and just ordered my 2nd, so plenty of value for the money invested.

    my partner and i try to avoid fragrances (even essential oils) in washing products for both personal use and cleaning our home. we were shocked that there wasn’t a difference from our typical consumer-market liquid dishwasher soap to these pods. so happy that we found common ground with something that’s better for our water system and works for our lifestyle! one thing to note is that our drinking glasses still have to be rinsed because of residue/water marks, but that’s not a problem for us. we just rinse them before use.

    Best affordable sustainable solution for automatic dishwashers

    allisonguggenheimer (verified owner)

    I have tried several “sustainable” automatic dishwasher soap products, but most powders leave a gritty residue on my dishes. Using these pods the dishes come out clean every time. The packaging is extremely eco-friendly with cardboard only and dissolvable pods. The best solution I have found so far. Having the product “pre-measured” also prevents me from wasting it by accidentally using too much which an awesome bonus. Will be buying again.

    Works pretty well! Great alternative to the normal pods. No big issues so far. I think the pods are made with the “better” type of material, but it is still plastic I guess. Maybe trying tablet form next.

      Hi there! We’re so happy that you’re liking these dishwasher pods! Good news: these pods are 100% plastic-free. The pod’s membrane is comprised of a biodegradable, water-soluble film made of polyvinyl alcohol. When the pod comes into contact with water, the membrane rapidly dissolves. The PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) further breaks down into water and carbon dioxide, thanks to the presence of soil and water-dwelling microorganisms. Pretty cool stuff!

    Works perfectly. More compact than regular dishwasher pods so they’re great for saving space! They don’t leave soap residue on my dishes like other brands.

    I absolutely love this dishwasher product. It is a bargain per load and leaves the dishwasher smelling refreshed and clean without the dishes or mugs tasting like the cleaner. I highly recommend buying into anything Dropps. like buying bulk it costs to buy in- but as a single person the cost savings are so worth it and the product is good for the earth. A+

    The only downside to this product was that some of the pods got stuck together in a big clump. I’m afraid if I pull them apart the outer shell will break and spill out the inner contents. Otherwise great product, cleaned my dishes nicely.

    Great alternative, however

    Blanca (verified owner)

    I love everything about this brand and product, in principle.
    However, they didn’t clean as well as other (albeit, not good for the environment) brands do.
    Like there’s more white marks left behind on glasses and some traces of food, like when you wipe chalk from a chalkboard. So my significant other is not happy to switch.
    Anyway, it’s still a great alternative, and I’m still considering using it but it’s a 8 out of 10

      Hello! All of Dropps products are comprised of biodegradable formulas that contain plant-derived ingredients. The main differences between the dishwasher and laundry detergents are in the pH and type of surfactants (the stuff that suds up!). Dishwashing powder typically has a much higher pH which helps it cut grease and break apart remaining food. The laundry pods are comprised of slightly different ingredients that are gentle on clothing, such as glycerin. We list all ingredients below each product, too! 😀
