The Beginners' Guide to EC30
A CLEAN YOU CAN STAND BEHIND
HOW TO USE EC30
When it comes to personal care, preferences are, well, personal. Some people like more lather, while others want to keep things simple! You can cut EC30 swatches in half or use more than one depending on hair length and preference. Our shower dispenser also makes storage for our personal care swatches in your shower convenient while protecting them from moisture.
"THE BEST SHAMPOO EVER!"
"Nothing has ever made my hair feel as healthy and clean as this does. This shampoo may seem expensive, but it’s worth EVERY penny! Plus, you are helping the environment and you don’t have those annoying bottles littering your shower =)"
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
Don’t just dump on top of your head – soak the swatch in your hand and watch it transform; lather first in your hands to generate a rich foam. Then massage it through your hair, adding water as needed to spread the lather. Unlike a traditional shampoo, make sure you lather it up in your hands BEFORE you apply to your hair, or you will have problems moving it around your head!
Is EC30 tested on animals?
The EC30 product you purchase is not tested on animals.
Our body wash can be used simply in your hands but is best used with a loofah or sponge to easily control the lather and spread.
"This product not only gives you the peace of mind knowing you are helping the environment, but I was also extremely impressed with the lather I got when showering. One square when put under water gives you more than enough soap to clean your entire body while smelling great."
This will go against everything you’ve learned about handwashing thus far – but when using our hand wash swatches, be sure to pick it up with dry hands! We promise – it’s worth the wait! Cup your hands a little so that the tiny swatch does not get washed away when you wet it! Wait for it to go ‘transparent’ before you start to rub!
Is the packaging compostable?
All EC30 packaging is compostable or recyclable (check your local restrictions on recycling and compost.) Please do not throw our packaging into landfill waste stream if you have recycling or composting options available. It will degrade at a very slow rate as landfills are created with the intent to block water, light, and oxygen.
If you have a dispenser drawer in your machine, that’s where this belongs. It may seem a little big, but that’s ok – you can fold it or cut it so that it fits in. And very importantly, make sure you have the dispenser on the powder setting (check your machine’s manufacturer’s instructions for this!) to allow the swatch to fully dissolve and travel into the machine.
No drawer? No problem. Just be sure to put the swatch in the drum BEFORE adding your clothes. EC30 is suitable for all machines and all temperatures – including HE washers.
"I really like this laundry detergent. This is the 4th more eco-friendly detergent I have tried and finally I have found one that my husband likes too. It cleans comparable to major name brand detergents. It dissolves completely (I had issues with other brands not dissolving). My husbands favorite part is the smell is amazing."
The first time you use it, we recommend using a brush but for subsequent uses, just use brush as needed. It is septic safe! Toss it in – no other steps needed! Plus, it’s perfectly portioned to give you the best clean possible. Just drop it in the toilet and great ready for clean.
IS EC30 safe for septic systems?
There are no septic safety concerns anticipated with use of this product, if used as directed in a properly functional septic system.
As we reimagined clean, we asked ourselves the purpose of every ingredient. EC30 is made with the minimum ingredients needed to give you the best performance. EC30 scientists looked at the cleaning tasks you complete across home and personal cleaning and tailored them to make each product unique.
Each swatch is uniquely formulated for the cleaning job it performs. We’ve chosen ingredients that are both effective and sustainable and of course made sure that they’re safe for you and your family to use. The cleaning actives (surfactants) used in EC30 are biodegradable, and our cleaning products are septic-tank safe.

You may notice our products have a scent – and we hope you love it as much as we do! We felt that just because we’re eco-friendly doesn’t mean we can’t smell good, too.
Our products contain notes of crisp Granny Smith apples and charming Bluebell flowers. The heart of the fragrance is like fresh bamboo surrounded in a bouquet of white rose and Sicilian lemon-peels.
EC30 is not tested on animals.

HOW TO STORE
When it comes to EC30, the most important thing you can do is keep it away from direct moisture when not in use. We’ve designed these products so that they readily activate when they come in contact with water – but don’t get them wet until you’re ready. In fact, we recommend taking a few of our products out at a time to store in a dry place, while leaving the rest in the shipping bag until you’re ready to use them.
As far as our hand wash, we know it’s best to have a bunch of swatches at the ready. We don’t have a dispenser yet, but some of our customers have said that they throw a few swatches in a glass jar for use when they need them.
Our personal care products are not water repellant in the shower, so we created our own shower dispenser!
Laundry can be stored in its box in the laundry room – and in much less space! Bye-bye big bottles hello tiny box!
Keep away from high humidity. EC30 toilet cleaner activates with water contact. Store product in a dry, cool place for best results. Our reusable shipping bags can also be used to block humidity.
HOW DO WE OFFSET
In launching EC30, it was hugely important to us to make sure we surrounded ourselves with the best of the best – the subject matter experts in their given fields. For the 50% of CO2 we can’t yet reduce, we invest back into nature. Which is why we’ve chosen to partner with the Arbor Day Foundation to purchase high quality carbon reforestation credits and support projects that advance reforestation efforts in the United States.
