We use dryer sheets once and then we toss them in the trash. It’s not the most sustainable method but it’s the one we’re used to. We don’t have to settle. I’ve switched to wool dryer balls and add in essential oils when I wash my sheets! It’s been one of my best zero waste swaps! Here are some dryer sheet alternatives!
Most laundry detergent comes in plastic packaging that more often than not ends up in our landfills. There are so many other options out there, even if you don’t have access to bulk suppliers! Here are a few examples and suggestions!
The single-most monumental change you can make in your laundry routine is cutting your dryer loads in half and use a drying rack when possible! I think you guys can figure this out but I’ve linked some that I’ve either tried or have wanted to try!

A teacher of mine in high school told my class to put up dividers around our desks and then passed out M&Ms to everyone. He asked everyone to organize them. After a few minutes he gets to my desk and sees that I have made a sun and a tree out of the colors I had been given. Laughing, he asked everyone to see how their neighbor had organized their M&Ms. Everyone had organized them into color columns or blobs. He points to mine and says “everyone does things a little differently, and we can all be right.”
