Why is “Switch to all-natural dishwasher detergent” green?
Most commercial dishwasher detergents contain phosphates, which are a nutrient to plants and contribute to harmful algae growth in waterways. Phosphates are also difficult to remove from the water. Many have a petroleum base, which promotes the production of fossil fuels. In addition, dishwasher detergents contain unnecessary amounts of water, which increase our water usage and transportation costs for the detergent. All-natural dishwasher detergents are phosphate-free and do not contain any unnecessary ingredients like dyes, fragrances, or chlorine.
