"Perfectly gentle while still washing away dirt I use these to wash baby clothes as they are very gentle and free from allergens. Laundry water is safe to flush out too as these are chemical-free." -Andrea
Soap Berries Laundry Wash - 100% plant based - 250g
Also known also as 'Soap Nuts', these little soapberries grow on trees in the Himalayas are a 100% natural and organic alternative to traditional soaps. They are part of the lychee family and are collected when they drop to the ground and dry out. The berries contain ‘saponin’ which is a surfactant that acts like soap. How amazing is that?!
They are totally waste free which is what we love and contain absolutely no harmful toxins, SLS’s foaming agents or anything at all that can cause any harm. Perfect for sensitive skin.
I am not at the stage in my business to use pretty ‘Us and The Earth’ branded boxes. A good portion of mine came from the stash I collect behind my local ‘Kidstuff’ or the supermarket. I have also been known to stop my neighbours on their way to the recycling bin with boxes. That’s just how I roll.
The jewels are on the inside and packed with so much love!! And just in case you are wondering - any bubble wrap used is all recycled too.
I recycle. I reuse. when I can
Carbon Neutral Parcel Delivery
The process of delivering a parcel emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which is shown to harm our environment.
We are using Australia Post and Sendle for our shipping delivery
Plastic-free Packaging that turns into fertiliser
HERE IS WHY I LOVE THEM...
WHAT ARE THEY MADE FROM?
Unlike traditional shipping mailers, these are NOT made from single use plastic. Our mailers are made from 30% plant-based materials such as PLA and 70% from a certified compostable material called PBAT (a synthetic bonding agent).
ANOTHER COOL TIP - YOU CAN REUSE THEM AGAIN
There are 2 sticky strips, so when you receive the mailer, you can cut along the line on the flap and re-use it with the second adhesive (glue) strip. HERO mailers are one of the only ones in the world that have a reusable strip!
HOW DO YOU COMPOST THE MAILERS?
To compost them at home, it’s best to remove any labels ( unless they too are compostable), cut them up and place them in your compost bin. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!
