Washing your clothes is a pretty environmentally unfriendly thing to do. Not only are we using a lot of energy to work the machine, but an amazing amount of plastic waste comes from your average container of powder or liquid detergent product. I always look forward to trying new, more ecologically sound methods. So when I was contacted to review their laundry detergent sheets, I was very happy to do so. Here is my Earth Breeze review.

Just how well do these Earth breeze laundry sheets work? How zero waste are they? Do they match up to their claims? And are they good for sensitive skin? Here is what I found out.

And – read on, because at the end you get the chance to win some for yourself!

Earth Breeze Review & Giveaway – A Zero Waste Eco Detergent?

 

Earth Breeze Review - here is what I thought of the Earth Breeze detergent sheets. Are these laundry washing sheets a good eco alternative? I tried the fragrance free style of Earth Breeze laundry sheets. Are they as good as my usual washing liquid? Are they good for sensitive skin? How much do they cost? How zero waste and eco friendly are they? Find out in this article.

 
 

Cleaning your clothes with traditional washing powders or liquids ends up wasting a ridiculous amount of plastic. In fact millions of tonnes of plastic waste is created by all the plastic laundry liquid bottles that we use across the world each year.

But Earth Breeze are aiming to stop all this. They have developed a laundry system that they claim is about as zero waste as you can get.

Who Are Earth Breeze?

Earth Breeze is an American brand, but they have now got a UK warehouse and are spending their message in the UK! They aim to provide a brilliant wash without all the nasty ingredients or plastic. Their products claim to clean laundry with no plastic jugs.

Their website states that they truly care. And they achieve this by their

  • plastic free packaging – it’s space saving too!
  • cruelty free ethos – the product is vegan and animal friendly
  • powerful clean – this eco friendly laundry detergent cleans away tough stains and odours
  • being safe for even the most sensitive baby skin.

Plus they donate 10 loads of detergent for every package bought, partner with We Are Neutral to offset their carbon footprint and are a member of 1% For The Planet – which means that they aim to put planet before profit. Their overall aim is to empower all of the people in their team and community. Or how they put it ‘saving the planet one laundry load at a time’.

My First Impressions Of The Earth Breeze Laundry Detergent Sheets

My Earth Breeze laundry strips arrived in a plain paper envelope, and needed very little in the way of packaging. The whole package wasn’t much larger than an A5 notebook, and really light.

There are two scents in the range of eco sheets, and these are

  • Fragrance Free and
  • Fresh Scent.

I have incredibly sensitive skin, and though Earth Breeze say that their Fresh Scent fragrance is also hypoallergenic, I decided to ask for a pack of the Fragrance Free sheets to review.

The pack contained 30 sheets of what initially looks like paper, but is actually very thinly pressed dehydrated detergent sheets. This is enough for 60 loads of laundry, which sounds amazing when you look at this in a size comparison to your usual detergent product!

A Picture of what the The Earth Breeze Eco Sheets look like

I am old enough to remember soap flakes and hand washing soap books, and these detergent sheets had a very similar feel. I was very keen to see if they worked…

How Well Did The Earth Breeze Eco Laundry Detergent Work?

 

Firstly and most importantly, a standard load of laundry only needs half of one of the sheets provided. The sheets are easily ripped in half, but I did wonder why they just didn’t make them half the size?

I actually had a massive load of sheets and towels and so used a whole sheet for my first load, folding it and placing it into the machine drawer as instructed.

When I took my clothes out they certainly felt clean, and maybe even slightly softer than my normal non-bio would leave them. (Again, because of my skin sensitivity I tend not to use fabric softener in my wash loads.)

They had no scent, but this is because I had chosen the fragrance free. To be honest, my usual detergent has very little scent compared to some of the detergents my friends use, which are probably biological washing powders and liquids.

I’ve done several loads with the sheets at the time of writing, and used half a sheet since. And I am actually very happy with the way that the sheets worked. I am amazed at how convenient they are. And obviously the packaging is miles smaller than what I am used to.

You can also do hand washing with the sheets. I just tore a quarter of a sheet and dissolved it in the water before hand washing my clothes as I usually would.

How Zero Waste And Eco Friendly Are Earth Breeze Sheets?

 

I actually looked at other Earth Breeze sheets reviews before writing this post. And particularly those reviewers who really know their stuff about being eco friendly. Very few of them gave the product 5 stars for being eco friendly, and some claim that some of the ingredients listed are dubious…so I thought that I would take all their points when thinking about buying these for myself.

Are The Laundry Sheets Eco Friendly?

The laundry sheets themselves do contain PVA and polyethylene glycol, neither of which is natural, and the glycol is a derivative of petroleum. However other than that they are as paraben, chlorine, bleach, phthalate and phosphate free as they claim to be.

My response to anyone questioning the chemicals in these sheets? How many chemicals do you think are in your usual washing detergent?

You could claim that using soap nuts or horse chestnut soap is a viable zero waste alternative to standard laundry liquid. But soap nuts are transported halfway around the world in some cases, so can hardly be claimed to have no carbon footprint.

Some of the reviews I read also commented on how the ingredients are sourced or shipped. Apparently some of the materials are ethically sourced in Asia and transported to where the sheets are manufactured in the UK and USA.

Overall, I guess that it would be hard for any product to claim to have zero carbon footprint these days. But I do think that Earth Breeze are trying to make their sheets as eco friendly as a detergent can be. 

Is The Packaging Eco Friendly?

A Picture of the Earth Breeze Packaging

Definitely. The paper packaging is compostable, and biodegrades in about 3 months. As compared to a plastic bottle that can take up to a 1000 years!

If you offset the use of plastic reduction by using these sheets as opposed to even buying bulk plastic bottles of detergent, then there is a massive saving there. I think if you are using a standard washing liquid or powder, then switching to Earth Breeze is quite definitely an eco alternative. 

Are The Sheets Hypoallergenic?

I have certainly found them to be sensitive skin friendly.

My Conclusions On Earth Breeze Detergent

So there is my Earth Breeze review. What did I think overall?

I think these are a brilliant alternative to your standard washing detergent liquids and powders. The sheets do a great job and are easy to use and store. 

Earth Breeze as a business also aim to offset all their carbon footprint and take part in good environmental initiatives, such as tree planting and beach clean ups. So I really do think they are doing a great job on being as eco friendly as it is possible to be.

    I would have thought that if the typical load only requires half a sheet that they would have made these half the size, too. As someone who has always used liquid or tabs etc, it’s really bizarre to imagine a small sheet. I always go non-bio and even then we have to be careful so it’s good to know these are both hypoallergenic. I’d maybe go for scented, providing they really are kind to skin and not likely to cause any problems. I can see why you erred on the side of caution with fragrance-free though.

    The size of the pack is just mind-boggling compared to cupboards with giant bottles of liquid. The subscription service is an interesting one, too. Shame there’s no free sample availability but providing they honour the money back guarantee, that gives some peace of mind.

    Another fantastic review, Jo!
