Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

I've been using for about 3 years. Amazing how much soap is in the nuts. So many washes out a bag. Wouldn't consider a chemical alternative at all.

Magic beans

Years ago, I was at my friend's house and he had two small children, so I was helping hang out the wet laundry. In the washing machine was this little bag of damp dried nuts. I told him the kids must have left one of their treasues in their pockets, but he told me this was actually how they did their washing. I thought he was crazy. However, a few moons passed and I tried soapnuts for myself. Now I think people who use perfumes and powders are crazy. Soapnuts are so simple, compostable, and clean. The clothes feel just really clean. I'm a mountain biker and I colour my hair and they deal with semi-permanent hair dye and mud really well. These soapnuts from evowarehouse were perfect. Dry and plump. I put them in glass jars or they get sticky. But I love them. Well worth buying. And they really do last as long as it says on the box.


Love Soapnuts

Have been using soap nuts from Ecowarehouse for years. They do the job, used shells go on my garden & I love that this is a natural product.

Washed my new cotton sheets with the soapnuts was very pleased with the results also good for my normal wash. Great if you have water problems as you don't have to rinse!
