Why the World (and You!) Needs Our Laundry Detergent Strips
When Lisa and I started Good Juju, we knew right from the start that we wanted to offer Laundry Strips as part of our solution. Good Juju is on a mission to remove 50 million plastic bottles from the waste stream by 2030, and our efforts start in the home. Laundry detergent is a very high use item, with most households averaging five loads a week, and most of that laundry detergent comes in bulky, plastic jugs. We knew we could provide a plastic-free alternative that still keeps clothes bright and clean, and our Laundry Detergent Strips were born!
Here are my top reasons why the world, and you, desperately needs Good Juju Laundry Detergent Strips.
#1 94% reduction in carbon emissions
The first reason, which is also nearest and dearest to my heart, is that our strips can MAJORLY reduce CO2 emissions. Liquid laundry detergent is made of as much as 80% water, and water is extremely heavy. Lugging around those massive, heavy jugs doesn’t just hurt your back, it hurts the planet too! The emissions from transporting liquid detergent is significant, not to mention the fossil fuel extraction resulting emissions from the plastic manufacturing process.
Our light and compact envelope of strips reduces the transportation-related emissions alone by 94%. Gold star for us, and you!
#2 They are clean
Did you know that one of the most common ingredients in liquid laundry detergent is formaldehyde? WTH?! Well, we removed that, along with Parabens, Phthalates, SLS, Phosphates, and 1,4 dioxane, a forever chemical that is a likely carcinogen.
#3 They work!
Our strips contain three gentle but super effective cleaning agents, as well as a plant enzyme made from a probiotic found in nature. This plant enzyme provides water soluble, non-toxic cleaning power, especially in cold water washes! But don’t take our word for it, here are what some of our customers have to say.
Okay, so I found Good JuJu at the most perfect time in my life! I was so sick of bulky laundry detergent bottles with formulas that were flaring up my eczema. Once I found this brand and their laundry strips, I WILL NEVER BUY ANY OTHER DETERGENT AGAIN! Not only are the strips incredibly convenient to use, but the detergent itself is also way better than any other laundry strip I've used before.

Never going back to liquid detergent in plastic bottles again. Absolutely love these laundry strips. They clean so well with NO soapy residue. What a great Canadian product!
– Gail, ★★★★★
I've been struggling for almost 2 years to find a good detergent that cleans well but not harsh for my skin. Of course, I often end up with non scent stuff. However, I tried these laundry strips and I fall in love!!!! My skin too! Yup, I took a risk by taking the scented one. So far, so good for my skin! I can't believe how well it works! And no more plastic bottle!! I strongly recommend making the switch!

I LOVE my Good Juju laundry strips! They work just as well (if not better) than my old liquid detergent, they're effective at cleaning my dirtiest workout clothing and leave my clothing smelling amazing. I feel great knowing I'm not contributing to more plastic bottles in the landfill. Zero waste and zero compromise - I love it!

#5 Your purchase makes a difference
Each time you purchase a pack of Good Juju Laundry Detergent Strips, you're making a difference for our planet. Here's how:
You remove 1 one-litre plastic bottle from the manufacturing and waste stream. That means less carbon released into the atmosphere from fossil fuel extraction and plastic production, waste management, and a 94% reduction in transport emissions alone.
- Trees are planted and forested areas protected, offsetting the carbon emissions from shipping and making your order Carbon Negative.
