Not all packing tapes (and plastics) were created equal!

Here at ‘That Red House’ we are hot on reducing our footprint on the earth. We have audited every step of the soapberry journey – starting with their harvest from the Himalayan treetops right through to their arrival at our front door in South Australia. We amended certain steps to reduce our carbon emissions and our plastic waste, which is how we came to be 100% waste-free. To pack our little balls of wonder into our cardboard boxes – we use Bio-Gone Tape, which is ‘landfill bio-degradable’. It has a patented additive to make it this way, meaning it will...

Awesome stats for soapberry lovers and eco-warriors!

According to statistics at our end, soapberry lovers: * Do 60,500 cycles of washing per week with soapberries. That's a mammoth 3.14 million loads per year!! Jeez you're a dirty bunch!! * In doing so, soapberry users wash through 4.5 million litres of water per week. That's 4.5 million litres of 100% uncontaminated, environmentally safe, chemical-free water which re-enters our waterways, gardens and is safe enough to go directly onto your organic veggie patch. *KISS* (that's for you... from mother nature) * Using soapberries also means you can cut out the rinse cycle on your machine. The saponins (natural soap) in soapberries are a surfactant, which means they break the surface...

Plastic Free July and beyond…

‘Plastic Free July’ is designed to raise much needed conversations about our abhorrent single-use plastic consumption, raise eyebrows and drop jaws at our excessive and mostly unnecessary usage and hopefully evoke change in all of us.   The statistics which accompany this campaign are horrific by anyone’s standards. By 2050, it is predicted there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish, we have seen images of our oceans choking on garbage and marine carcasses laying on the beach, their bellies full of plastic. The most disturbing statistic though is that every piece of plastic ever made, IS STILL IN...
