If you have read my most recent blog post, you know I have been using and loving Tru Earth laundry eco-strips. Check it out here if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet! Why I switched to Tru Earth Laundry Strips
Basically, Tru Earth is a Canadian company who has created a completely compostable, all-natural laundry detergent strips that has eliminated over 2,000,000 plastic jugs from ending up in the landfill. The strips come in very minimal packaging and make it super easy to store in your laundry room, especially if you are lacking in storage space. We just bought a new house this month and I’m so excited to have my own laundry room where I can have all my strips on display! ..Not that anybody is coming to my house these days.. I think it’s time to snap some pictures of the new space!
In March 2020, Tru Earth started an amazing donation initiative where they have started matching customer subscriptions with donations to charity. In July they celebrated a donation of over 2,000,000 loads of laundry detergent to families in need. How amazing is that?
I’ll explain a little bit more about their subscriptions. Their options are great. You can choose a delivery every month, two months or three months, or six months. You can specify which pack of detergent you would like, for example a 32 pack of the baby scent, or perhaps a 64 pack of unscented! The options are endless. One of the best parts is the amount you save when choosing the subscription. Another neat option is they give you the chance to contact them if you’re needing a more customized delivery option. This information is all on their website.
I love being able to support a company that just cares so much about those around them. The more you buy, the more they give. I think this is a great incentive.
In August, Tru Earth was able to donate 150,000 Tru Earth laundry strips to The Village of Hope, valued at $75,000! This donation eliminated laundry costs for more than 500 families and individuals who access programs at The Village of Hope. They are challenging other Canadian companies to step up and help out those who are needing help providing food for themselves. Food banks need fresh food, pantry items, but they also need household products. I know I used to think a Food Bank was just that, food, and I’m glad that I know better now. They need everything from laundry detergent, to hygiene products! Help out where you can.
I encourage you to check out Tru Earth, and give their laundry strips a try! You won’t regret it. If you’re unable to donate yourself, Tru Earth has a great opportunity with purchasing the eco-strip subscription. The holiday season is a great time of year to do as families need assistance more than ever, such as clean clothes! Visit their website to find more details on getting your laundry strips today.
