Conventional Laundry Detergents – A Curse For The Environment

Conventional Laundry Detergents – A Curse For The Environment

When we put a capful of detergent in the washing before every wash, we rarely consider what it contains or the harm it can do to our environment. The only thing on our minds is getting some fresh, clean clothes.

It’s time that we think beyond and consider the long-term effects of the detergents and soaps we use to clean our garments.

Laundry detergent is harmful to the environment and, as a result, the earth. It has negative consequences for all living things, but it is particularly destructive to aquatic life. After using detergents, the remainders are emitted through wastewater from homes and businesses and directly harm our ecosystem.

Detergents are chemical molecules that are both polar and non-polar. These detergents seem to have become a necessary component of our daily routine. Regardless of the form, both powders and concentrated water-based products are widely used all over the world.

And it has become a standard we seem to no longer think about the negative effects our daily routine has on the environment.

Conventional laundry detergents consist, among others, on surfactant and phosphates which are the two major constituents in laundry detergents. These components are used to classify laundry detergent and are quite harmful and dangerous. Why? It sadly became a standard to use these ingredients in detergents to improve emulsification, foaming, wetting, and dispersion qualities as well as for keeping dirt off the garments or other items that are being cleaned. Alkyl ethoxylate sulfate, ethers of fatty alcohol, and alkyl sulfates are just some examples. While surfactants seem to be useful and handy in our laundry routine, they have a significant negative impact on the environment which can not be ignored.

And besides, it is not only the chemical compounds in the detergents but also the amount of single-use packaging which we thrown out every time we finish one product. Laundry detergents are usually available in single-use packaging material. In many cases, even made from plastic, a non-recyclable substance and,non-reusable. There is no sign of plastic free detergents.

Many stats show that the amount of detergent sold in a year directly impacts the amount of plastic produced and consumed. Imagine the amount of plastic produced from one massive batch of detergent sale. And of course, along with that, the other chemicals used in detergent are affecting the environment at a fast pace.

But there is an easy, approachable, and inarguably guilt-free solution to this problem. Yes, it is possible to ban harsh chemicals, single-use packaging waste from your washing routine.
