“Typically, most of us consider the laundry to be a drag. But what if it were an indulgence? The products in this monthâ€™s kit invite you to reconnect with a sense of gratitude at the joy of washing, to think of the laundry as a small, daily ceremony of renewal in harmony with the environment and echoing with the traditions of earth-centered livelihoods around the world.”
“Each Laundry Box will come with a set of 3 handmade 100% wool dryer balls!
Wool dryer balls is a chemical-free and eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener as they decrease drying time and naturally soften your clothes. Just toss them in with your clothes for more softness on the other side!
These dryer balls were handmade exclusively for our customers in Kyrgyzstan, where wool is a way of life. (The country is world-famous for its shyrdak felt rugs.)
The wool balls were made by artisans of Altyn Kol Womenâ€™s Cooperative. The cooperative employs over 1,000 craftswomen and serves as one of few sources of cash income available to the regionâ€™s remote farming and shepherding villages.
The wool balls is a GlobeIn signature product and will retail for $15.”

What are soap nuts? Soap nuts are a natural, eco-friendly, chemical-free way to clean your clothes. They releases a natural sudsing detergent which behaves the same way as commercial laundry detergent, but without the chemicals.
