Eco Laundry Club have created an ultra-concentrated, plastic-free, zero-waste alternative to traditional laundry detergents. A laundry sheet is simply placed directly into your washing machine (or in a basin of water for hand-washing), and dissolves instantly in either hot or cold water. This is a completely natural, eco-friendly cleaning product.
The laundry sheets have exactly the same cleaning power as mainstream detergents, and cost the same. They take up a fraction of the space, create no mess and contain zero plastic.
Use 2 sheets for large loads and 1 sheet for smaller washes.
This simple compostable and recyclable cardboard box contains 40 laundry sheets, suitable for up to 40 washes.
No toxins or chemicals
It is completely safe to both humans and aquatic life, and has been rigorously studied, due to its extremely high usage across a multitude of applications.

We have also partnered with Eco Laundry Club to offer you a new way to have an eco-friendly laundry. Sign up to Eco Laundry Club's subscription service and they will post 40 washes-worth of laundry sheets, straight through your letter box, as frequently as you wish. No more lugging home huge plastic bottles to cram into an already overflowing cleaning cupboard. 1 box of laundry sheets takes up 90% less volume than the equivalent mainstream liquid detergent (which also means our carbon footprint in transportation is substantially less too). It's a win win!

Water (extracted during manufacturing), naturally derived surfactants from coconut oil, polyvinyl alcohol, natural essential oil fragrance derived from Osmanthus.
Osmanthus Absolute Oil is antimicrobial, expectorant, detoxifying and stomachic. The aromatherapy properties of Osmanthus Absolute Oil are both soothing and comforting, lending to its use in essential oil blends for pain relief, meditation and yoga.
Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is an extremely common binding agent (often used in contact lens solutions and eye drops), which we use to create our instantly dissolving detergent sheets.
Note that this product is currently ethically manufactured in China. Eco Laundry Club's aim is obviously to produce as close as possible to the country in which their product is used. As with many eco-friendly alternatives, the raw materials required are not always native to the country in which they are consumed (there is no getting away from the fact that the UK does not produce coconuts, bamboo, natural sponges etc).
With this being the case, Eco Laundry Club go to considerable lengths to ensure that their product is ethically manufactured, from both a workforce and raw material perspective. Due to the weight of the product (112.5g per box), their carbon footprint is minimal, particularly compared to bulky mainstream detergents. Given their laundry sheets are plastic-free, zero-waste, non-toxic, cruelty-free and vegan, they strongly believe they represent a better choice.
Eco Laundry Club also support Treesforcities.org and donate an monthly basis to offset their company’s carbon footprint.
These are brilliant! I’ve never tried anything like this and was quite skeptical about them but the smell is lovely, everything came out very clean. When we do a small wash we cut the sheet in half and that works fine. They are really good value and easy to use with great packaging that takes up much less space than standard washing detergent bottles. Highly recommend!
Hi Zoe, thanks for your review and feedback on the laundry sheets. They have several good things about them, we're glad you agree!
The sheets themselves smell great. The clothes, after washing, don't really have a smell at all but are definitely clean. There isn't any gel or powder so you can 'spill' them. And you could probably cut them in half for smaller washes so you don't waste a whole sheet but my household does not do small washes. Definitely works and I would recommend.
Hi Hannah. Thanks for your great feedback on the laundry sheets. We think they are a great alternative to plastic based and chemical ridden laundry products so we're glad you agree!
