Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE) and works with both hot and cold water.
Eco-Strips laundry detergent has a dramatically smaller eco-footprint than liquid and powder detergents. It's packaging uses less plastic, and it's light weight reduces transportation fuel consumption and carbon emissions by 94% compared to today’s leading-brand liquid and powder detergent.
Over 30 billion of loads of laundry are done in North America each year, and the environmental impact is massive. A load’s worth of today’s leading detergent weighs in at over 40 grams. A single Tru Earth Eco-Strip weighs less than 3 grams, or a whopping 94% lighter! With so much less to truck around, and no plastic jug, Eco-Strips helps you lighten your load on the environment. If everyone switched to Tru Earth Eco-Strips, the annual eco-savings would be enormous:
- Eliminate one billion plastic jugs (you read that right!), saving 700 million from going to landfills
- Save truck fuel and CO2 equivalent to taking 27 million cars off the road for a day, or planting nine million trees

Depending on size of order and what is ordered along with your detergent, this detergent is shipped in a post consumer recyclable/compostable kraft envelope, or a recyclable/biodegradable no wax paper glassine bag.
Glassine is a thin, flat, and smooth paper that is resistant to water, air, and grease. It's made through a manufacturing process called supercalendering, which involves running paper web through hot rollers to make the fibers lay flat and in the same direction.
