For comparison, the average person, per pound, per year contributes about 1.4 pounds of waste. When it comes to detergents, the average person, per pound, per year is 1.5- 2. Where does this go? Into surface waters. According to an article on Mother Earth News, the estimated amount of phosphorus in lakes and rivers from detergents ranges from 50% to 75%. Those are huge numbers and according to Mother Earth News, those amounts are actually increasing, as is the amount of phosphorus in detergent products.
The graph below is taken from lanfaxlabs.com. This shows that the majority of detergents are well-over normal environmentally friendly levels.
(Sodium and Phosphorus - only one product had phosphorus above 1 mg/wash. The industry standard for powder laundry detergents is 7800 mg/wash. Where wash and rinse water are mixed prior to land application, the load of sodium and phosphorus does not change.)
In our efforts to continue broadening your mind on the pollution factor equated with laundry detergent pollutants imagine this (gathered from hbmag.com):
Take the cost of a jumbo economy box of Tide detergent into $6,000,000,000 that translates into over 140,000,000 boxes. That’s enough to fill 126,000 semi-truck loads. Parked bumper-to-bumper, that would fill I-5 from Vancouver to LA!
That is a lot of detergent. Now mix all that with 26-30 gallons of hot water per washer load and you get 333 billion gallons of dirty, chemical laden water seeping out of laundry machines in North America each year.
This is just the icing on the cake, add to that: the millions of laundry jugs and boxes thrown away each year, the fact that some chemicals in detergents take years to break down, the emissions used to produce these products-with the plant facilities and truck emissions…the list goes on.
This is all enough to make you sick, and is killing the environment. The EcoWasher® eliminates these pollutants all together. Get your EcoWasher today®!
Natural Detergents are not the answer!
Laundry detergent is the ultimate backstabber. The fresh scents, and pearly whites leave you trusting and believing your clothes are clean and fresh. As you embrace the smell of a fresh shirt, you are actually inhaling synthetic chemicals and expelling toxic wastewater into the environment.
The natural direction most people take is switching to natural or organic detergents. While these prove better, some still have faults. The price is always a consideration. Generally all natural products tend to be more expensive. Also, they can be sneaky.
The following “natural” or “better” detergents still proved some-what bad. This was taken from www.gimmethegoodstuff.com:
• Green Works Free & Clear Detergent. Contains a number of bad ingredients, including synthetic preservatives. EWG score: F.
• BabyGanics Loads of Love Laundry Detergent. Contains SLES and undisclosed conditioning agents. I like that they are relatively transparent about all of their ingredients, and while nothing sounds particularly horrid, when I asked for more details on what was meant by “naturally derived plant based cleaning agents,” they admitted: “Our products do not contain SLS however some our products do have SLES in them.” Yuck! I’ve often made my peace with SLS, but definitely not with its more sinister cousin, which is sometimes contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, a well-established carcinogen. EWG Score: F.
• Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Laundry Detergent. Contains synthetic fragrance (though phthalate-free), and preservatives such as methylisothiazolinone, a suspected neurotoxin. EWG Score: F.
• Seventh Generation Liquid Formulas. Also contains methylisothiazolinone. The powder formulas are okay, but not quite Good Stuff. EWG Score: D.
• Caldrea Laundry Detergent. Also contains neurotoxic methylisothiazolinone and sodium laureth sulfate. EWG score: F.
• Charlie’s Soap is the perennial favorite on tons of natural living blogs, and having used their powder formula, I can attest to its effectiveness. Like other producers, Charlie’s is unwilling to provide their exact ingredients, and would only say this when I probed them further: “Our formulas are what make us special. They have been fully tested for toxicity (Duke University) and biodegradability (Japan Food Research Labs) and effectiveness (SGS US Testing Labs). They are unique and (following the practices of Coca-Cola) secret. Their formula is secret too, but that doesn’t keep folks from drinking it.” Hmmm, comparing themselves to Coke probably isn’t Charlie’s savviest PR move—The Coca-Cola Company is not exactly exemplary when it comes to concern for the health of its consumers. While Charlie’s denies using SLS or SLES, one of the ingredients they disclosed is sodium metasilicate–which Skin Deeps considers moderately hazardous and which the Journal of Reproduction and Fertility found to show reproductive effects in animals at low doses. EWG Score: D
• Citra-Suds has also been moved from Good Stuff to Sneaky Stuff. One of my readers suspected that their laundry detergent contains sodium laureth sulfate and I followed up to discover that it does. When doing the initial review I had an email exchange with a company representative and I asked twice if their laundry detergent contained SLES and was told that it did not. I suspect that the woman I talked to was just uniformed, but this is no excuse. In addition, some Citra products (laundry and otherwise) contain limonene, a potential carcinogen and definite respiratory irritant. I was told they used orange oil for fragrance, which is a misleading answer as orange oil is technically a different (and harmless) ingredient. It also contains neurotoxic methylisothiazolinon. EWG Score: C.
Tide Free & Gentle contains optical brighteners and 1,4-dioxane, a probable carcinogen. (A recent New York Times blog post discussed Tide Free & Gentle specifically.) EWG Score: F.
So, you can’t believe everything you hear. The EcoWasher® immediately fixes the problem by eliminating all chemicals correlated with detergents.
