Works well

No plastic packaging at all! I keep these in a small tin on the counter. It works great!

Hassle free pods

I love these hardworking pods. They get the job done, they don’t take up a ton of space under the kitchen sink, and when they are all gone there isn’t a large plastic container that you have to send to the landfill. I add a little vinegar to the dishwasher so there is no water marks on glasses.

Dishwasher Pods

I was originally skeptical that this product would work well but want to reduce the amount of plastic our household uses so I ordered a jar. I've been pleasantly surprised to find that it is working as well as my jell soap - no spotting after the rinse either. I definitely will purchase this again.

sustainable packaging

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.
