Greening Your Laundry Routine with Tirtyl Laundry Sheets

by Tirtyl Team

Did you know that the average Australian household does laundry 2.5 times per week? With so much laundry, using a product like Tirtyl laundry sheets will help reduce your efforts. Instead of measuring and pouring liquid or powder detergent, you simply toss a sheet into the washing machine with your clothes. The sheets dissolve in water and release the detergent, saving you time. 

Greening your laundry routine is an easy and effective way to reduce your environmental impact. By using Tirtyl laundry sheets, you can cut down on plastic waste and energy usage while still getting your clothes clean. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of using Tirtyl and how it can help you create a more sustainable laundry routine.


Environmental Consequences of Traditional Laundry

Laundry is one of the leading causes of carbon emissions and energy use in the average home. Your dryer uses up almost 6% of your home's energy usage, while each load of laundry releases 3.3kg of carbon dioxide.

Using eco-friendly laundry detergent sheets can help cut down on some of these emissions. On the other hand, here are some of the consequences of doing your laundry without eco-friendly tools.

Water and Energy Consumption of Traditional Laundry Detergents

While your dryer is the main culprit of energy consumption, your washer is safer in this regard. Your washer will only consume about 1% of your home's average energy usage.

However, the usage of fresh water to clean your clothes is still immense. Your washer uses between 8 and 21 gallons per load. So if you're doing several loads in a day during spring cleaning, you're using up to 378.5 litres per day—or more!

The energy dramatically spikes if you use hot water to wash your clothes. Up to 90% of a washing machine's energy is used to heat water. So cutting down the temperature can reduce carbon emissions significantly.

Production and Transportation of Laundry Detergents

The production of laundry detergent is severely harmful to the environment. One of the core processes is to use phosphates.. Unfortunately, these chemicals cause significant harm to the environment. Phosphates are often used to soften water, but when they enter waterways, they can contribute to water pollution and harm aquatic life. 

When too much phosphate gets into the waterways, they cause enormous algae blooms. These blooms suck up oxygen, damage wildlife, and harm the environment.

The transportation of laundry detergents requires heavy carbon emissions. Whether travelling by train, truck, plane, or shipping container, transportation pumps enormous quantities of Co2 into our environment.


Why Use Tirtyl Laundry Sheets?

Now that we know more about what makes laundry detergent harmful to the environment, how can Tirtyl laundry sheets help? What makes our product the best laundry sheets, and how can you help cut down on environmental pollution? Here are some of the best perks of Tirtyl detergent sheets.

Tirtyl Laundry Sheets are Vegan-Friendly

One of the most popular benefits of our laundry sheets is that they're vegan-friendly. Vegan-friendly products are products made with no interaction with animals.

Many people prefer vegan products for moral or health reasons. Additionally, these products are made with less environmental impact. Not only are our products cruelty-free, but they're also much more environmentally friendly.

The environmental impact of animal-centric industries, such as cattle, is immense. Our product comes without this impact, helping to create better eco-friendly detergent sheets.

Tirtyl Laundry Sheet Packaging is Environmentally Green

Another substantial benefit of our laundry detergent sheets is their green packaging. The packaging used in most laundry detergents is not recyclable and clutters trash bins.

Our packaging is fully recyclable and made of green materials. It’s plastic-free and recyclable, promoting zero waste. We help you keep waste down while ensuring we don't pour more plastic into the environment.

Refillable For Less Cost and Emission

One of the most significant flaws of traditional liquid laundry detergent is the container. While some environmentally-savvy minds find other uses for a laundry detergent container, most throw them away. There's no reason to keep it around, as these containers are bulky.

Tirtyl solves this problem with our Refill and Save program that promotes the bulk purchase of laundry detergent sheets. This significantly cuts down cost and reduces emission. You can visit this page for more details!

Easy to Use, No Extra Equipment Necessary

Have you needed help measuring the precise amount of liquid detergent needed for your laundry? What about times when you've measured incorrectly and had to rewash your laundry to get them clean?

We help you measure out your laundry without any difficulty. For every 7 kg of laundry, add one laundry detergent sheet.

You can easily decide how many sheets to use with such a simple calculation. Your days of free-pouring liquid detergent over your laundry and wasting half the detergent are done!

Effective Product Keeps Down Waste

Ineffective products are more than just a waste of money! If your laundry detergent doesn't clean your clothes adequately, you'll use more than you should need. Not only will this waste your detergent, but it'll also waste your money and time.

A single sheet of our product is effective, helping to reduce your waste. You'll also have an easier time storing, using, and keeping track of the products.
