Soap Nuts an environmentally friendly laundry alternative.
Soapnuts (Sapindus mukorossi) are an environmentally friendly, sustainably produced, bio-degradable and compostable alternative to commercial laundry detergents. Grown wild in India, for centuries these nuts have been used for many purposes, from laundry to cleaning jewellery and treating contaminated soil. They are most widely recognised as being an effective and environmentally friendly natural detergent, but can be used for a wide variety of other uses. These Soapnuts are imported directly from an Indian FairTrade Organisation, giving consumers the added value in knowing the harvesting and production is done under FairTrade conditions.
This 500 gm bag should wash 200 loads, or 7-10 loads per week for around 6 months. A number of people use these Soap Nuts within the congregation.
I am willing to order them for you so saving on postage. Each 500gm bag costs $17.50, postage will be shared among us. Please see me, phone me or email me if you are interested or want more info. Contact Jackie, in the office 8278 7699.
