We are so proud of our pouch and the innovation of using an HDPE#2 material. Why all this excitement over a pouch? When we started Savvy Green we searched the web for months to land on just the right bag for our laundry detergent. It had to be perfect. First and foremost, we needed packaging that lived up to our standard of smart, green and clean.
Here in Florida, we co-habitate with mold and everything else that’s drawn to hot and damp surroundings. In order to ensure that the powder didn’t lose its fluffiness and was protected from humidity, we needed lots of protection. Cardboard wouldn’t cut it – too much clumping.
When we did find the perfect pouch we had to order tens of thousands of them. We thought it was crazy to start with so many. But soon, our family, friends and business colleagues convinced us that it was the right decision to go full steam ahead. This is one smart pouch. For one, you can reuse it for other dry contents. It is also amazingly, unabashedly green: there is more than 50% reduction in packaging for the product, as well as decreased bulk for shipping, and less room required on store shelves.
Best of all, you can recycle the bag.
The matte color finish uses water-based inks instead of the normal more volatile chemical inks.
Finally, the pouch contains a super-concentrated formula that means you only need to put in one tablespoon per wash to get your clothes clean. We are not ashamed to admit that we love this pouch! From the smooth feel of the matte finish to its surprising sturdiness on the shelf to its easy fit in your hand to the convenient open-and-close top.
It’s all in the bag. Enjoy!
