Natural Laundry Detergent Helps the Environment

Sure, you choose a natural laundry detergent like Charlie’s Soap because it doesn’t harm the environment. But what if we told you our eco-friendly laundry soap does something even more amazing? With every load you wash, you’re actually helping the environment. No kidding!

Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent Helps the Earth: Here’s How

Have you ever gone into an area of a city that has a rank sewage smell about it? Yeah, it stinks – literally! Cities spend billions of dollars dumping chemicals down drains to clean sewer lines. Most of the time, their tactic just doesn’t work. Parts of the city may still have a pretty bad odor about them.

So what does this have to do with your dirty sweatshirts, underwear and socks? Each and every time you wash your clothes with Charlie’s Soap, you are helping to treat 109 gallons of waste water in your community. Just like our eco-friendly laundry detergent keeps your washing machine clean, it’s keeping your home’s pipes clean.

And it’s not just keeping YOUR pipes clean, but it’s keeping the city’s pipes and manholes clean and odor free.

Charlie’s Soap to the Rescue

We even have a case in point to share from the North Carolina town of Mayodan.  A sewer system manhole was emitting a foul odor for years, with city workers and officials attempting to eradicate or mask the scent to no avail.

Would you know that around the same time, our soap manufacturers realized 30,000 gallons of Charlie’s Soap natural laundry detergent that had been warehoused too long wasn’t up to standards to be sold in stores.

So one of our company owners, James Sutherland, donated the eco-friendly laundry detergent to the town of Mayodan. The city poured 55 gallons down the stinky manhole – and the stench disappeared for a full six weeks. The city tested and refined its strategy, finding it needed one gallon of Charlie’s Soap per day to keep the stench fully at bay. How cool is that?
