Dropps - Sustainable kitchen and laundry products
Pros: plastic-and-toxic-free, everything (including the packaging) is compostable
Cons: the pod sometimes doesn't dissolve totally (think it might be our dishwasher)
Review: Love these pods so much. They are legitimately exactly like your usual dishwasher pods, but without all the harmful effects. The packaging is so compact and very informative as well. Dishes come out squeaky clean, as long as the pod breaks open. However, it always dissolves on heavy wash, so I think it is the power of my dishwasher.
Happy Sustainability Sunday! We are having a very lazy day here today which means we don’t want to do anythingggg, especially all the dishes from the weekend. Good thing we got our handy dandy dishwasher (sorry New York folks). But we can’t be lazy about sustainability. So while we have that time-saving machine do all the cleaning for us, we still need to make sure we are looking out for the planet.
In comes @dropps, the OG inventor of the detergent pod back in 2005. Through decades of innovation and harnessing the power of nature, they provide effective and eco-responsible products that are convenient, safe, and effective even against the toughest grime. And to avoid chemical-run off, all of their formulas are dye-free, phthalate-free, phosphate-free, and animal-cruelty-free. Who doesn’t love free?!? One of the largest environmental impacts from dish detergent is the boom of algae overgrowth that threatens marine life and aquatic plants. Nearly a thousand manatees have died in Florida in 2021 due to these algae booms. We must stop introducing toxins to our water system to protect our health and the health of the world’s wildlife.
And don’t get us riled up again over the plastics used in detergent. @dropps dissolvable pods and compostable packaging helps keep single-use plastics out of the landfill, already saving 2 MILLION plastic containers from being created. All of the shipments are 100% carbon-neutral, and have created carbon off-setting projects to further diminish CO2 accumulation. Through partnership with @clearloop, they are able to expand access to clean energy by funding the construction of new solar projects. Mic @dropps.
It’s okay to take shortcuts at times, but never on sustainability. Technology and innovation are meant to make our lives easier, but it should never come at the expense of our planet. By using @dropps, you are helping turn the tide against toxic pollution, plastic waste, and animal cruelty. So load that dishwasher up and add some @dropps, so you can sit back and relax knowing you are keeping Mother Earth safe. 🌎
