Dishwasher + Oxi Boost Pods (Dropps)

We love a multi-purpose product around here! It's the ultimate zero waste move.

Highly requested by our EcoWarrior community, these Dropps pods are a more sustainable alternative to the big-brand names on the big-box shelves. Even better, they're both a dishwasher detergent and a laundry oxygen booster in one. One pod, multiple uses.

As a dishwasher detergent, these pods will make your dishes shine, every time.

As a laundry oxygen booster, the pods will add some extra oomf to your laundry routine to whiten whites, brighten colors, and fight stains.

Not a fan of the PVA coating? We get it! Check out our locally-made, PVA-free dishwasher pods instead.

Ingredients

Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Percarbonate, Poly(itaconic acid-co-AMPS) Sodium Salt , Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate, Alkoxylated Alcohol, Subtilisin, Silicic Acid, Tetraacetylethylenediamine, Alpha Amylase, Polyvinyl Alcohol Film (PVOH / PVA)

What is PVOH / PVA?

Polyvinyl alcohol is a bio-based film. Most evidence to date shows that these film coatings do dissolve in the water system. Is it a perfect solution? No, but we believe it's a step in the right direction. Check out our blog post for more info!

To Use

As a dishwasher pod: Add one pod to the detergent dispenser of your dishwasher. Use all settings as normal.

As an oxi booster pod: Add one pod to the drum of your washing machine, along with your laundry detergent. Add laundry and wash as normal.

Packaging + End of Life

If your order is being shipped to you, the pods ship without packaging.
If your order is being delivered locally, the pods will be stored in a reused cardboard box with minimal paper tape. The box and the tape can be placed in curbside paper recycling.

Simple and easy! No plastic

The weird plastic-looking film thing around the pods throws some people off, but these aren't wrapped in plastic! They are very comparable to other pods I've used. No issues with leaving dishes dirty or not rinsing fully. Work great with my dishwasher.

Works

my dishes are clean and I haven’t had any issues. Takes up less space that the big plastic boxes/ bags the corporate stuff comes in. Less wate, works good and comparable price. I will buy again

Work Great!

These clean my dishes really well. I am so happy that you have this product as unfortunately the other dishwasher soap blocks didn't work for me. I am very thankful for a product that is more eco friendly and effective!

These work great!

I don't notice any difference between these pods and the ones I was using before in the way that they clean the dishes, and I love that they are delivered in re-purposed packaging that I can either reuse or recycle.

We ship ugly boxes

Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.

We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.

You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.

Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?

Don't take our word for it...

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
