Is Earth Breeze the ecological revolution it claims to be?
If so, do their laundry sheets work when compared to classic detergents?
As someone committed to doing my part by living a greener life, I was curious about their claims.
- Tide Pods: $0.22/load
- Kirkland Pods: $0.14/load
- Earth Breeze: 0.20/load (w/ subsciption)
- Smell: Fresh scent is mild but nice
- Stains: When Compare to Tide Pods, stain fighting was the same
Overall, I noticed no difference in switching from Tide pods. I like what they stand for and plan to continue using them.
I live in a small space, so I’m always trying to save space. The packaging is compact and easy to organize. Also, I’m a big traveler, so it’s great to know that this will fit easily in my suitcase if I go away for a longer trip.

The Pros and Cons of Earth Breeze
Many people are interested in protecting the planet. However, not many people want to compromise on clean clothing. Here is a list of the pros and cons of Earth Breeze laundry sheets to get a better idea of the value.

Earth Breeze VS Traditional Detergents
- Traditional detergents are often made up of up to 90% water. Detergents are being shipped around the world containing water, a resource that is available in homes.
- Earth Breeze uses the water already consumed during a machine wash. The sheets dissolve in hot or cold water. You place them in with the laundry or where you would pour liquid detergent.
- Traditional laundry detergents can use up to 40 grams of product in 1 load of clothes.
- Earth Breeze uses 3 grams of the product. That’s simple math even for me.
- Some people complain about pod detergents leaving residue.
- With Earth Breeze, you don’t have to worry about any residue.
One thing I dislike about traditional detergents is the mess. The liquid soap is always pouring down the side of the bottle and creating a sticky mess in my laundry space. Earth Breeze doesn’t make a mess.
- The results of Earth Breeze laundry strips will be as effective as traditional detergents if not more so.
Unfortunately, Earth Breeze is not yet available in mainstream stores. Hopefully, one day saving the planet will be the status quo and not the exception to the rule. The best way to receive Earth Breeze is to sign up for their subscription program online.
Earth Breeze Laundry Sheets
- Earth Breeze laundry sheets come in 2 scents: fragrance-free one and another that is a fresh scent.
- A single package of Earth Breeze is for 40 loads. 1 strip is used per load.
- A one-time buy of 60 loads is $20 and that goes down to $12 per month with their subscription-based model.
Does Earth Breeze work?
After reading many online reviews and watching YouTube videos about Earth Breeze this product is worthwhile. They may be slightly more expensive than traditional detergents, yet, that’s a price I’m willing to pay to do my part to help the environment.
The Environmental impact of Earth Breeze
You may not realize it, but laundry waste is a huge problem.
Over 700 million plastic jugs end up in landfills and oceans each year.
You may have heard of Plastic Island or the Great Pacific garbage patch. It’s a collection of garbage, plastic, and sea debris in the Pacific Ocean that is estimated to be over a million square miles.
Even if you recycle your current plastic jugs, there is a huge debate over the effectiveness of recycling. It is estimated that 8.4% of plastic is reused. Isn’t it better to reduce plastic consumption from the source?
It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish. Small changes can make a big impact if we work together. The cost of transporting Earth Breeze products is minimal considering that they are super lightweight.
How Earth Breeze Prevents Plastic Pollution?
I have already extensively talked about the wasteful use of plastic jugs. With Earth Breeze laundry strips even the packaging is zero waste. The cardboard that the strips are packaged in is 100 percent biodegradable.
Is it possible to change the way people do laundry?
People have been using classic detergents for a long time, it’s normal that they will be resistant to change. But, the world is waking up to environmental issues. Our shopping habits are changing with our growing environmental conscientiousness.
One of the most difficult challenges facing Earth Breeze is to convince people to sign up for a subscription program to receive their laundry strips. Most people are not in the habit of thinking this far in advance.
Because I rank the environment over some minor convenience I am happy to try a new model. To hesitant people. I would recommend keeping a small bottle of backup detergent in case you run out before your next order comes in. You have nothing to lose.

Earth Breeze YouTube Reviews
Kristen, from the YouTube channel Strolling Through Life reviewed Earth Breeze laundry sheets. Her channel often reviews sustainable products. She used the Fresh Scent laundry sheets.
She said the following:
“It does really well with getting scent out of clothing and kind of giving nice fresh scent. It did a great job with sportswear and workout-wear.”
Kristen was really surprised. She really liked the smell. Although she has been buying unscented detergent, she didn’t find the smell overpowering.
She made a great point that Earth Breeze is perfect for college students living in a dorm and don’t have a lot of space.
She also had some curry stains which didn’t go out after the first wash. However, curry is a notoriously difficult thing to wash out of clothes, even for conventional detergent.
Another content creator named Lauren Nowicki from the YouTube channel Lo Without Limits reviewed Earth Breeze.
Both Lauren and Kristen had a small problem with the mailing packaging. Although the Earth Breeze packaging is biodegradable, the envelope that it was sent in was not recycled paper.
Laurent tried the fragrance free laundry sheets. She mentioned that she has super sensitive skin and didn’t want to take any risk with extra fragrance. Overall she was impressed that Earth Breeze took a coffee spot out of her jeans. Earth Breeze also took out a large stain on her white shirt. In the end she said that she was “a big fan”.
Earth Breeze Reddit Reviews
People in the zero waste community of Reddit were curious about Earth Breeze products. User soniahadid asked if anyone could share their experience.

Earth Breeze Trustpilot Reviews
Earth Breeze gets some less stellar reviews on Trustpilot with only a 3.5 rating out of 5.
One of the things that stands out is the customer service. Many people applaud Earth Breeze for their availability and great customer services. It’s clearly a company that cares about their customers.
Some people complained about Earth Breeze’s ability to get out tough stains, although I wonder if that would be similar to any laundry detergent?
For tough stains, it may be beneficial to use two sheets of Earth Breeze laundry sheets.
One user, Liz commented:
Taking all the reviews into consideration I would still check out Earth Breeze. I will definitely keep into account that no laundry detergent is perfect and tough spots may require extra attention. The great thing about Earth Breeze is their money back guarantee and the fact that you can cancel the subscription at any time without penalty.
Earth Breeze Vegan Friendly Ingredients
Many people, myself included, look at the back of traditional detergent bottles at a list of mystifying ingredients. One thing you can feel good about is knowing that they don’t include any unnecessary dyes or bleaches.
Earth Breeze is committed to be transparent, cruelty free, animal and planet friendly. Their vegan ingredients include:
- Primary Alcohol Ethoxylate
- Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate
- Sodium Acetate Trihydrate
- Polyvinyl alcohol
- Polyethylene Glycol
- Fragrance (for Fresh Scent)
- Deionized Water
- Starch (corn)
Is Earth Breeze worth it?
It is a product worth trying if you are committed to the environment.
Some people complained about the power of Earth Breeze to get out harsh stains. Haven’t people been complaining about those same stains with traditional detergents for years now?
In my case, Earth Breeze is an easy choice for its environmental benefits and its hypoallergenic formula.
Although Earth Breeze is not going to solve the planet’s environmental problems alone, it’s a step in the right direction.
