One of the best parts about life in the Pacific Northwest is our close proximity to wilderness & outdoor recreation–our home state of Oregon boasts over 350 state parks and 11 national forests!
If you’re anything like us Portlanders, you’re already preparing your summer essentials checklist, and dusting off your camping and hiking gear in anticipation of outdoor adventure.
This year, try adding Ecosuds to your list. Ecosuds are a lightweight, no-mess, biodegradable, powder soap that can wash anything–your sticky marshmallow hands, camp dishes, or socks. Just pour a nickle-sized amount of powder into your hands (or a bowl) and add water–it’s that simple!
Ecosuds are formulated with sodium cocoyl isethionate, a natural surfactant derived from coconut oil that aids in foaming and helps water mix with oil and dirt to rinse away grime. Add to that baking soda, which neutralizes odors as it gently cleans, and powerhouse MSM, a potent yet gentle ingredient that leaves hands soft and smooth.
No more lugging bulky, messy gels or leaky liquid hand cleansers that explode into backpacks and bags–try Ecosuds for an eco-friendly, lightweight option on your next camping or backpacking trip. We predict it’ll soon be one of your go-to summer essentials–right next to the sunscreen!
Please Leave No Trace: Even biodegradable soaps and cleansers shouldn’t be used in a natural water source. To wash yourself, your laundry or your dishes, carry water 200 feet away from streams or lakes and use small amounts. Then pour wastewater into a hole 6 to 8 inches deep.
