EcoEgg: The Egg that washes your clothes, saves you money, and protects the planet.

What are EcoEggs and why is everyone talking about them? 

Thanks to the BBC’s “Shop Well for the Planet” you’ve probably heard of EcoEgg Laundry Eggs. For those of you that haven’t, EcoEggs are an innovative, eco-friendly 2-in-1 replacement for laundry detergent and fabric conditioner that are better for the planet and your pocket. Originally designed for those with sensitive skin, they are kind to skin, cruelty-free, and vegan. 

Why do I need an EcoEgg?

Firstly, EcoEggs contain more environmentally-friendly levels of surfactants (the compounds in laundry detergent that clean your clothes), which are better at breaking down in our waterways than normal detergents. 

Secondly, having a laundry egg helps to reduce single-use plastic. Your EcoEgg arrives in a cardboard box containing all you need to get started. Once you’ve got your EcoEgg, you’ll only need to buy refill packs. Plus, they're totally reusable. You’ll never have to buy a plastic bottle of laundry detergent or fabric conditioner again! 

Thirdly, priced at £10 and lasting an expected 70 washes, you’ll only be spending 14p per wash with an EcoEgg, and just 12p when you refill.

How long does the EcoEgg Laundry Egg last?

If it’s your first time buying an EcoEgg Laundry Egg, you’ll be getting the starter kit which comes with the reusable egg and mineral pellets expected to last 70 washes. When it’s time to refill, all you need to do is grab yourself some EcoEgg Laundry Egg Refills to last you another 50 washes. 

How do you know when to refill an EcoEgg?

After roughly 70 washes, you may notice the mineral pellets have shrunk in size. The egg’s fragrance may also be slightly less powerful than on its first use. You can continue to use your EcoEg, but you might wish to give it a boost to get the best possible wash. It might be time to get yourself some EcoEgg Laundry Egg Refills

How do you use an EcoEgg Laundry Egg?

It couldn’t be easier to set up your EcoEgg. In just a couple of minutes, you’ll be ready to start your first load of washing. Simply load all of the mineral pellets that came in the box into your EcoEgg, then with the EcoEgg closed, place it inside your washing machine drum and start your cycle. It’s that easy!
