Forests in the Himalayan foothills supply many local families with sustainable incomes. One natural product they are harvesting is soapnuts - berries related to the lychee family which contain high percentages of saponins.
Saponins act like soap or detergent when put into water, meaning they can be used in washing machines as a detergent alternative.
Many families are switching to soapnuts for their detergent as they are allergy-free, unprocessed and contain no animal products.
Recently the price of the wood from the soapnut tree has been higher than the price for soapnuts, meaning the forests are being used for timber instead of soap. By using soapnuts we are increasing demand, making it more profitable to leave the trees alive.
They wash your clothes without leaving a harmful residue, without damaging our waterways and without harming our environment through mass industry.
Soapnuts are all natural, come from the wild and literally grow on trees.
