Doing laundry sure consumes a lot of water and electricity. If you care about the environment—and I hope you do—it’s worthwhile to consider investing in some environmentally friendly laundry products.
These environmentally friendly laundry products can make for a minimalist laundry experience that reduces water and electricity; extends the life of your clothing, towels and bed linens; and gives you a tremendous sense of satisfaction that you are heavily engaged with the laundry process.
Let’s take a look at an electricity-free portable clothes washer, high-powered spin dryer that uses much less energy than traditional dryers, and natural and safe cleaning product that works for laundry and many other cleaning jobs around your home!
Environmentally Friendly Laundry Products: The Laundry Alternative WonderWash Portable Clothes Washer
Let’s talk about water briefly in taking a look at the first environmentally friendly laundry product on this list. As the human population surges, we’re facing water shortages more than ever. These water shortages aren’t going away, and it’s up to all of us to use less water.
Enter The Laundry Alternative WonderWash portable clothes washer. This hand-cranked manual clothes washer will surprise you over how effectively it washes clothing and with so little water. By simply turning the crank, your clothes will thud hard against the opposite end, smacking out dirt. In mere minutes, your clothes are ready for the next stage of the environmentally friendly laundry process.
Yes, spending a few minutes per small load requires more time and effort than just pressing a few buttons, but if you want to do your part in helping with the water crisis so you and others can have water to drink, you’ll come to appreciate this time investment and how you’re stepping up for Mother Nature and showing her some love.
Do you know what else will come out of this time investment? Your investment in your clothing will pay off more, as your clothes will last longer while using The Laundry Alternative WonderWash.

Environmentally Friendly Laundry Products: The Laundry Alternative Spin Dryer
With your clothes washed in The Laundry Alternative WonderWash, the next step in your journey with environmentally friendly laundry products is to get the water out and get your clothes dry.
The Laundry Alternative Spin Dryer, also marketed as the Ninja Dryer, moves at a head-spinning 3,200 revolutions per minute. A week’s worth of T-shirts can be ready to hang dry after The Laundry Alternative Spin Dryer takes out 90 percent of the water in about 3 minutes.
Traditional dryers generally are set to run 30 to 60 minutes at a time. Beyond demanding more electricity, they also take some of your clothes and other items with each use, turning them into lint.
By comparison, The Laundry Alternative Spin Dryer extends the life of your clothing, as there is no lint collection involved.
If you are devoted to doing less damage to the environment and to your clothes, the Ninja Dryer is your ticket to a minimalist laundry experience.

Environmentally Friendly Laundry Products: Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap and Dr. Bronner's Laundry Soap, A.K.A. Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds
I’ve talked about washing clothes and spin drying but never shined a light on an environmentally friendly detergent or soap.
Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps are natural soaps that can be used for anything from washing your body and dishes to even laundry. Available in a range of scents, these soaps have won over a legion of fans over the decades.
This longtime company also puts out Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds, also refered to as Dr. Bronner’s Laundry Soap. Unlike Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps, Sal Suds produces much more suds, which some folks want to see when cleaning.
When you consider the fact that water is reused after being treated by municipal water plants, wouldn’t you feel better about drinking water that was used for laundry with Dr. Bronner’s soaps as opposed to toxic chemicals such as the majority of detergents sold?
If your favorite shirt gets a big red watermelon stain, you might also want to pick up the Amazing Whip-It Cleaner, which is extremely effective in making stains magically vanish. This potent cleaner is yet another environmentally friendly laundry product.
Top 3 Environmentally Friendly Laundry Products: Summing up
I hope you can see how easy it is to make rather small investments in these environmentally friendly laundry products but make a big difference week in and week out in showing more love to our planet, our only home.
I have used this low-cost laundry equipment since autumn 2017 and feel good about these choices, knowing they’re better for the planet than ginormous washers and dryers that require lots of resources to make along with lots of electricity and water to use.
Get back to being engaged when you do laundry with these environmentally friendly laundry products! 🌞
