Tide purclean - A Step Towards a More Sustainable Future

Wednesday, October 12, 2016


If you told me that motherhood doesn't change you, I would definitely beg to differ. There is something that happens to you when you have a baby, changes that take place even before baby takes her first breath. I believe its nature's way of preparing you as you take on the incredible responsibility of caring for another human being. You begin to develop a sense of preservation, an instinct that screams, Protect this child at all costs. It wasn't until my first child was born a little over a decade ago that I became more critical of the way we lived our lives, the products we brought into our home and the ways in which we could make a positive impact on the environment. Since then, we have purchased many a reusable bag, observed off-peak hours when tending to the laundry, and consumed more natural and organic foods than I can count. I have also tried several different environmentally friendly cleaning products, including laundry detergents, but oftentimes it felt like I was sacrificing "clean" for "green." 

Tide purclean Honey Lavender and Unscented

Over the past few years, I made the switch back to Tide because I longed for a laundry detergent with enough cleaning power to tackle grass stains, dirt, and other everyday stains that are part and partial of having kids. When Tide introduced their line of Free and Gentle laundry detergent, I was so happy to discover that they had created a detergent that was free of dyes and perfumes, and that it was gentle on skin. But then, in September, Tide launched Tide purclean, the first bio-based detergent with the cleaning power of Tide, and in doing so, has taken a step towards a more sustainable future. The mama bear in me jumped for joy. Not only is Tide purclean 65% bio-based, as certified by USDA BioPreferred Program, it still boasts exceptional stain removal, brightening power, colour-care and efficiency in energy-saving cold water, just like Tide Original Laundry Detergent.
Since I first started using Tide purclean, I have tested it out on our cotton towels, on the kids uniforms and on our everyday clothing, without disappointment and with greater peace of mind. Why? Tide purclean is free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates and optical brighteners. You may also be surprised to learn that it is produced at a facility that uses 100% renewable wind power electricity, resulting in zero manufacturing waste to landfill. And yes, it is available unscented but trust me when I say, you have to try the Honey Lavender scent. It is a delightful potpourri of lavender, jasmine, orange flower and amber woods that is incredibly pleasant and mild to the senses. 

Tide purclean is HE-Compatible and is now available at retailers across Canada.
