Net Zero Strips - Laundry Detergent Strips
Newsflash: There’s nothing clean about traditional liquid laundry detergents.
Liquid laundry detergents are made up of 90% water. And you’re not the only one that has to lug around those heavy jugs – gas-guzzling trucks have to transport them.
These laundry detergent strips are ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic and create over 90% less transportation pollution. They’re also free of the harmful chemicals you’ll find in liquid detergents (parabens phosphates, dyes, bleach, formaldehyde and more). Our sensitive formula delivers a powerful clean to eliminate tough stains, restore whites and keep colours bright.
- Choose from 32 or 64-load packages.
- 1 strip = 1 load. No measuring, no mess.
Made in North America, Plastic-Free, Vegan & Cruelty-Free, Non-Toxic Formula.
Net Zero Strips work in all washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE). They easily dissolve in hot or cold water. To clean, place your laundry inside the washing machine. If you have a medium-sized load, place a single strip. Bigger load = 2 strips, small load = ½ strip. Finally, run the washer.

Mode on what we kept in our zero-waste laundry detergent strips:
Vegetable Glycerin: A softener and efficient solvent derived from soy! It helps to lift tough stains such as mustard off from clothes.
Starch: A biodegradability booster derived from maize (corn).
PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol): Biodegradable matrix.
Potassium Sorbate: Food grade preservative to protect the strips!
Cocamido Propyl Betaine: coconut oil based, biodegradable amphoteric surfactant (cleaning agent) and foam booster
Sodium Gluconate: A plant-derived and food-grade, biodegradable chelating agent to keep dirt from settling back on after being lifted away from fabric.
Lauryl Dimethyl Amine Oxide: A plant-derived, biodegradable, non-ionic surfactant (cleaning agent) and foam stabilizer
Sulfonic acids, C14-16-alkane hydroxy and C14-16-alkene, sodium salts: biodegradable surfactant (cleaning agent). This can also be found on shampoo!
Glycereth Cocoate: A plant-derived and food grade, biodegradable water softener.
Caprylyl Glucoside, Octyl Glucoside: non-ionic surfactants (cleaning agents)
Fragrance oil blend (excluded in fragrance-free version): natural essential oils and synthetic ingredients
Light Mineral Oil: A processing aid in manufacturing. (inactive ingredient)
Residual Water (from manufacturing)
More on PVA:
PVA is not a petroleum based product. It starts off as an ethylene (natural gaseous hormone given off by plants that causes the fruit to ripen) and turned into vinyl acetate through a chemical reaction with oxygen and acetic acid (also known as vinegar in diluted form). It is polymerized (bonded to form repeating molecules), and then dissolved in alcohol to become a water-soluble polymer.
PVA and starch are what gives us the paper-like carrier matrix. Same material is used on various laundry sheets and pods as an outer case (which dissolves in water) and biodegradable with no adverse eco impacts.
Our product with PVA is certified biodegradable.
Net Zero Strips are palm oil free & gluten free.
