Summer Travel Zero Waste Essentials

Are you looking to spend time outdoors this summer? Check out our zero waste plant-based biodegradable products to clean your space and yourself.

The weather is starting to warm up and many of us are planning summer vacation. If you’re going to be out in nature, show it love and respect by using our Zero Waste Collection.

This is a no-mess option for washing your dishes because there is no liquid in the solution. Simply dip your sponge in the jar, take just a little bit of dish soap and clean your dishes.

Our solid dish soap comes in a glass canning jar with a lid. When it’s finished, you can re-use the jar.

This grease fighting solid dish soap is handmade and uses natural and renewable ingredients.

Laundry Butter Detergent


This detergent is great for sensitive skin. We use a coconut based soap and the only other additives are washing soda and borax.

Our laundry butter comes in three scents: no scent, lavender, and lemongrass. We use quality essential oils for the scented options.

Generally when people react to detergents, it is the added colors, synthetic fragrances, and lathering ingredients that commercial detergents include. 

It is considered zero waste because it comes in a reusable glass jar. Once the jar goes through the dishwasher it is safe to store food. The butter is made from renewable plant-based ingredients and the resulting grey water from your laundry load is made from natural products. This makes it safe for city or septic water systems.

How To Use Our Laundry Butter

The texture of our butter is pudding-like, making it easy to scoop one tablespoon per laundry load. 

Do not use it in your detergent dispenser, add it to the machine drum before you add clothes.

This is a no-sud detergent and can be used in high-efficiency front load and top load washing machines.

Shampoo And Conditioning Zero Waste Bars

Our package-free shampoo bars are great for grab and go packing.

Our conditioner bars are long-lasting because you only use a little bit. 

Store them in a soap holder and let them air dry after use so that they last longer.

From an environmental standpoint, the ingredients are renewable plant-based and the colors are clay and botanical based.

We use essential oils to infuse our shampoo and conditioner bars.

Hair bars are great for normal to dry hair because they hydrate your hair with a coconut based surfactant.

How To Use Our Hair Bars

Wet your hair and the bar. Rub a few times and spread through your hair with your fingers. Add more if necessary. You can use the shampoo bar on your scalp but we recommend you keep the conditioner to the middle and ends of your hair. 

You’ll find that you actually use less than when you use a liquid equivalent.

This is a zero waste product because it is plastic free. When your hair bar arrives it comes in a recyclable paper label. 


We hope you’re as inspired as we are to include zero waste products in your daily life.
