Plastic-free dishwasher tablets.

Oct 12, 2017 | 0 comments

/ The pursuit of looking for plastic-free alternatives continues, and the more you think about going for that type of product, the easier it actually gets to find them, I think. You get to know the local supermarket’s range a bit better, so in time you don’t have to make a big effort to find these products, because you know exactly where to find them. I have slowly started replacing conventional products in our kitchen and scullery with products that are effective but at the same time respects our environment. One of the products that has become a favourite are these 100% plastic-free dishwasher tablets. We buy them in the Danish supermarket Kvickly, but try keeping your eyes open for an alternative where you’re living.

Jagten på de plastik frie alternativer fortsætter herhjemme, og jo mere man gør sig tanker om at gå efter netop dén type produkter, des nemmere bliver det faktisk at finde dem, synes jeg. Man lærer sit lokale supermarkeds sortiment lidt bedre at kende, så med tiden skal man ikke som sådan gøre en indsats for, at finde disse produkter. Jeg er langsomt begyndt at udskifte konventionelle produkter i køkkenet og bryggerset, med nogle der er effektive men samtidig med respekt for vores miljø. Ét af de produkter der er blevet en fast bestanddel herhjemme, er de 100% plastik-fri opvaske tabs fra Änglamark. Dem køber vi i Kvickly, men de kan sikkert også fås i andre coop-butikker.

/ The cool thing about the dishwasher tablets is that they are wrapped in a soluble film so you don’t have to unpack them and throw away excess trash. Just pop them right into the machine! The cardboard box they come in can go in your recycling bin. In it has all the right eco-friendly labels and doesn’t contain perfume or color. It’s a fairly simple product, but we turn on the dishwasher once a day. Imagine how many small pieces of plastic you throw away on a monthly basis when you buy the conventional ones! Of course, they’re not the cheapest on the market (we pay around 6 $ for a box with 30 tablets), but sometimes it’s worth looking beyond the price and simply choosing environmentally friendly alternatives like this one. The slightest change in our habits can make a huge difference!

Det smarte ved de her opvaske tabs er ganske enkelt, at de er pakket ind i en opløselig film, så du skal ikke stå og pakke dem ud. Det er bare direkte ind i maskinen med dem! Papæsken de kommer i kan du jo så med fordel smide i din genbrugscontainer. Desuden er de astma/allergi mærket og indeholder hverken parfume eller farve. Det er et ret simpelt produkt, men herhjemme tænder vi opvaskemaskinen 1 gang om dagen. Tænk hvor mange små stykker plastik det er, der egentlig lidt unødigt ryger i skraldespanden hver dag, hvis vi købte de konventionelle tabs! Selvfølgelig er de ikke de billigste på varehylden i dit supermarked (en pakke med 30 koster ca. 35 kr.), men nogle gange er det værd at se bort fra prisen og bakke op om miljøvenlige alternativer som dette. Den mindste ændring i vores vaner kan gøre en kæmpe forskel!
