Have you heard that liquid detergents are as much as 90% water? All that water is heavy to ship around the world and to your door. It takes a lot more energy and fuel. That’s why we took the water out. What’s left is our ultra concentrated detergent that is light in your hands and on the earth.
Our packaging is 100% cardboard, our strips are 0% plastic and larger than other strips on the market. Like nature, no cleanup necessary. Lazy is best. No liquid, no mess. Compact and easy to carry. Use them at home, in the dorm, or when you travel. And try to have fun. :)

Why go zero plastic?
Plastics have revolutionized our world. For example, cheap, configurable, single-use plastics used for medical purposes can save lives. But not all uses of plastic are wise or sustainable. Consumer products and packaging made for convenience are of questionable overall value. And plastics may have serious implications for human and environmental health.
We created Lazy Coconuts™ because we want to be a part of the solution. With more eco friendly products available, it’s becoming easier to make choices that keep our planet clean. The real power is in your hands. Your purchases drive product innovation and force companies to address real environmental problems.
Plastics may affect our health
A growing body of literature suggests that plastics and their byproducts may be toxic. In many studies, BPA (Bisphenol A) has been shown to be endocrine disrupting, and to cause metabolic syndromes. Other plastics may have adverse health effects too.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3791860
“Transforming fossil fuel into plastic resins and additives releases carcinogenic and other highly toxic substances into the air.”
“Documented effects of exposure to these substances include impairment of the nervous system, reproductive and developmental problems, cancer, leukemia, and genetic impacts like low birth weight. Industry workers and communities neighboring refining facilities are at greatest risk and face both chronic exposures.”www.ciel.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Plastic-and-Health-The-Hidden-Costs-of-a-Plastic-Planet-February-2019.pdf
Huge amounts of plastic are entering the ocean
Almost half the plastic ever manufactured was made since 2000 and it’s exponential
Approximately 42% of all plastic usage is for single use packaging.
Purchasing products without plastic increases demand for better packaging and forces innovation in packaging.www.advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/7/e1700782
Cleanup will be challenging
“I am very doubtful about the cost-effectiveness and technical feasibility of large-scale removal. How are we going to remove floating micro-plastics without removing plankton which have the same size and form the base of the food web? How are we going to collect plastics from the ocean floor given that the average depth of the ocean is 14,000 feet?”
“We know how to design waste management systems, but waste management is not just a design problem, it is also has social and cultural dimensions.”
We can do better
We got tired of buying plastic products that come in plastic packaging and decided to do something about it. For us, out of sight is not out of mind. We imagine a world free of plastics and full of plentiful renewable energy that can sustain itself indefintely. Join us!Shop Lazy Coconuts Strips
