We did the calculations for you.
For the average person, saving the earth isn’t a top priority. Rather, saving money is the topmost concern. But what if you could save the earth AND save money at the same time? Sounds like a fairy tale, but let me say today that this can be your reality if you switch to soap nuts for cleaning.
Assuming a family of 4 people who washes clothes 5 times a week, with a 7kg laundry load. By using soap nuts instead of washing powder, you save $3.20 a month or $38.40 every year. By using soap nuts instead of washing liquid, you save $2.20 a month or $26.40 every year. And if you use a commercial eco-friendly washing liquid, you save $8.80 a month or $105.60 a year!
Read on to see the details of how we calculated your savings.
