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

    Just what I was looking for

    amleri15 (verified owner)

    These work great, I love that they come in a little cardboard box. They acutually are as potent as they advertise! My clothes always smell and feel fresh and clean. I very rarely feel the need to put more than one little pod in there. Only when I really big loads at the laundromat.

    Not for heavily soiled items

    Alex S. (verified owner)

    Works great for my day to day clothes, but it doesn’t seem like Dropps are cut out for heavy duty jobs. I do occasional field work that leaves my work clothes muddy, sweaty, and smelly. It took two washes & twice the amount of recommended pods to get the stains and odor out. One Gain pod would’ve done the job in one wash, but I guess that’s only downside from making the switch to a more a sustainable option.

    terrific

    Shana (verified owner)

    I’d been using liquid detergent for many years and switched to powder a couple of years ago to get rid of the plastic jugs. But now I may be hooked on Dropps! These pods are just so easy! We don’t absolutely love the fresh scent but probably because we’re not used to any scent at all.

    quality ingredients, thoughtfully made–i’ve used other zero waste detergents in the past and have had issues with them dissolving properly in my machine. this is liquid concentrate on the inside with a lovely, though subtle scent–and works perfectly! new go-to, so grateful.

    These are the 1st pods I have used in my front load washer. I’ve always used a liquid prior to these. They cleaned the mixed load nicely and have a light scent.

    Highly Recommend!

    rebecca.f.leser (verified owner)

    I wasn’t sure what to expect with my first time ditching the plastic Tide bottle that I’ve become so accustomed to using, but I am completely sold on the Dropps brand. I love that I’m using an eco-friendly brand that is plastic free. I’ve been using two packets for supersized loads and one packet for smaller loads. The detergent doesn’t have a strong scent like mainstream brands, but I’m good with knowing it’s environmentally friendly. I will be buying this product for years to come.

    I was using soap nuts before. I am noticing that my clothes feel/look cleaner and smell fresher with Dropps Lavendar Eucalyptus detergent. Comes in a cardboard box for extra points for those trying to ditch plastic.

    Smell is subtle and nice. Seems to work really well — my clothes feel just as clean as when I use my homemade soap/baking soda mixture, and this is a lot easier.

    Love the Fresh Scent

    jennamelvin4 (verified owner)

    Tried these when one of my fave YouTubers mentioned it on a video. Decided to try them out and really love that there is no plastic in the product or its packaging. Have read reviews that they do not dissolve consistently but I have not had that problem…they dissolve every time. The scent is not overpowering and I must say my sensitive skin does seem to like this detergent better than all other brands I’ve tried. Definitely recommend!
