MyGreenFills is a company that caught my attention because of its unique approach to reducing harmful ingredients in laundry products but also its commitment to environmental stewardship. Instead of purchasing bottle after bottle of detergent and throwing the plastic away at the end, My Green Fills allows you to purchase one bottle and simply mails you the refills in a paper baggie. Mix with hot water and you’re good to go another few month or more!
My Green Fills began with a simple vision: “To create sustainable non-toxic products that work great and save money.” Founder Ruth Smith, created her own green laundry detergent out of necessity to help relieve her own children’s severe skin allergies. Made from essential oils and a mix of Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Chloride, Tetra Sodium Salt, Sodium Citrate, My Green Fills is nontoxic and free from SLS, perfumes, glycol, dyes, fillers, phosphates, 1,4-dioxane, chlorine, DEA, thickeners, fillers, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, and optical brighteners. Each bottle makes 50 oz of detergent and only 1 oz is needed per load for high efficiency washers.
