Switch to organic detergents.Refill the second time detergents in reusable bottles, canisters.
Describe your tip
Reduce the use of plastic packaging.Switch to reusable canisters of liquid laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, and shampoo.Nowadays this direction is developing and many brands are installing machines for filling shampoos, detergents into cans and reusable bottles.Check where there are such refilling machines near you, possibly at the nearest supermarket.Alternatively, you can switch to natural organic detergents.This is also very important. Since inorganic substances after washing or washing dishes enter the sewer and go to the cleaning station. But the station cannot process complex inorganic compounds, and some of these compounds will end up in the ocean or pollute the soil. Bacteria at the station do not eat inorganic compounds.If you switch to organic detergents, it will also allow the beneficial bacteria to live in the stations and they will purify the water and may even release methane gas for clean energy.Go organic and find a re-fueling station!
Please provide the name we should use to attribute the tip to you? (First Name, Nickname, etc.)
