A new addition to our family of earth-friendly laundry tools is the Cora Ball! This playful product actually tackles a serious problem facing the whole planet - microfibers that get washed from your laundry into the waterway and eventually into the ocean. While we are on a mission here to move towards natural fibers like wool and organic cotton, we realize that that is not a one-step process, and that even the staunchest natural fiber fanatic has got some polyester or nylon somewhere in their laundry cycle. This genius product lives in the washing machine with your clothes, and as the wash cycle progresses it picks up microfibers and traps them in its wiggly blue fingers. At the end of your laundry cycle, you grab the Cora Ball before your clothes go into the dryer. You then clean out the microfibers from the Cora Ball and dispose of the in the trash, not the drain.
Do not use the Cora Ball in your laundry along with lace items, or items with tassels!
Made in Vermont using recycled plastic.

Natural Laundry Care:
Wool Dryer Balls
These simple fuzzy friends are a natural and chemical free alternative to fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Many people have already eliminated the use of fabric softeners and dryer sheets from the laundry routine in order to reduce waste and chemicals, but are missing out on the soft fluffy laundry that comes out of the dryer ready to hang and fold. A set of these 100% Wool dryer balls can last for years and will help to reduce the drying time of each load of laundry by 15 - 25% - saving energy and money. They are handmade right here at Echoview using USA Wool.
Delicate Laundry Bag
Using a delicate bag can prolong the life of items with delicate elastic like bras and underwear but we could not find a laundry bag that wasn’t polyester which creates a laundry dilemma - prolong the life of your undergarments or forgo the added microplastics? We found a 100% cotton mesh fabric and decided to just make them ourselves so that we didn’t need to compromise. Delicate Laundry bags are also a great way to keep socks from disappearing during the laundry cycle.
