The problem with normal dish soap
You just cooked an amazing Sunday brunch for your family and you’ve enjoyed some really yummy dishes with your family. But, then it dawns upon you that your perfectly cooked dinner has left quite the number of dirty utensils and dishes that you need to clean. Well, I am pretty sure that a bar of zero-waste dish soap is probably something that never crossed your mind in the first place.
While your traditional zero waste dish soap gets the dishes clean, you end up polluting the environment without realizing it. The toxic chemicals in the dish soap can not only harm our health but severely harm marine life as well.
Honestly, if you ask me, a zero waste dish soap is one of the coolest waste-free swaps that anybody can make without compromising on the effectiveness and its ability to clean the dishes.
So, here are 5 Reasons To Start Using a Zero Waste Dish soap
Toxic Chemicals & Ingredients:
Normal dish soaps contain ingredients that are super toxic to the environment. I mean sure they definitely get the job done and not all chemicals in those soaps are bad for our bodies – But, some of them tend to severely disrupt the balance of our ecosystem.
When our dishes are washed some of the harmful chemicals can linger on our dishes. For instance, some of the most popular liquid dish soaps contain bleach.
Being an eco-warrior I can tell you with the utmost confidence that you really wouldn’t want them having a party in your dishes while you eat food from them.
Unnecessary Waste of All Sorts:
REALITY CHECK! Conventional dish soap 80% of the time is packaged in a plastic container. Well, yea some of them are refillable but, these bottles take more than 100 years to break down. Using conventional liquid dish soaps also contribute to global waste. Not to mention the extra amount of water you end up using. All things apart, when using a dish soap that has harmful toxins in it, we also contribute to water pollution as well. Even though the water is treated, it’s extremely difficult to remove all of the toxins.
The habits of using conventional products and the reluctance to adopt waste-free products run deep within our subconscious. But, making a zero-waste swap can be easier than you think. All you have to do is make some minor adjustments and the best part about is the fact that you are going to make a positive impact on the planet just by making a more conscious choice ofswitching to a zero-waste dish soap
