Washing powder

Ditch the washing tablets in a big plastic box or powder blocks wrapped in plastic for washing powder in a cardboard box.

Recommended suppliers:
Ecoleaf laundry liquid and powder from Little Green Refills

You can buy most of the branded tablets in powder form but I am really getting on with Surcare from Sainsburys at £6 a box – perfect for a family with very sensitive skin.
