Here are a few reasons you should consider changing your Laundry Detergent
Detergents are manufactured from synthetic chemical compounds, as opposed to soap, which originates with natural substances like lye and plant saponins. Detergents can have far-reaching environmental impacts. LIVESTRONG
Phosphate-containing detergents can create algae blooms in fresh water. These in turn use up the oxygen available for aquatic life.
Surfactants, surface-active chemicals that reduce the tension of oil and water and help stains come out of fabric, can disrupt the endocrine systems of humans and animals.
Laundry and dishwasher detergents come in plastic containers that are generally non-reusable and non-recyclable.
