Ecover: Powered by Nature Review and Giveaway! - US Only!


I am constantly on the look-out for exceptional Green cleaning products. I'm not a fan of vinegar. I cannot stand the smell and even with essential oils thrown in there, I hate it. I love me some eco-friendly cleaning action and I love finding new products to trust in my home! I knew I wanted to try Ecover products when I had heard they have devoted over 25 years of research into the development of products which use plant power and mineral based ingredients! The result is safe and effective cleaning.



I have found a hard time finding eco-friendly dishwashing tablets. I love my Seventh Generation brand, but I have found them hard to find in my stores, and I really dont care for the loose powder. I love that my Whole Foods carries the Ecover Dishwasher Tablets! I know some people might say a dishwasher is not eco-friendly, but really, it is! I use mine on a short cycle and turn the heated dry off to save on energy. Dishwashers are also amazing at saving water! They use much less water than you would use to wash dishes in the sink! Not to mention, they use less of my time! I love having a natural dishwasher tablet that I can trust. NO measuring, just pop it in and go. Each box of Ecover Dishwashing Tablets contains 25 tablets. Each and every time I have used my Ecover Dishwasher Tablets my dishes have come out sparkly clean, with no residue at all!

Here is a little bit more information about the Ecover Dishwasher Tablets:
  • cleans and degreases effectively
  • easy dosing
  • hygienic, efficient and safe
  • no residue
  • plant based ingredients
  • phosphate free
  • quick and complete biodegradability
  • minimum impact on aquatic life
  • no animal testing
  • safe for septic tank
The carton is made of 95% recycled cardboard. The plastic wrappers are made from Polypropylene and are 100% recyclable. (The wrappers protect the tablets from moisture damage.)

Here is the complete ingredient list! I love that they disclose every ingredient!
  • Sodium Citrate
  • Sodium Carbonate Peroxide
  • Sodium Carbonate
  • Disodium Disilicate
  • Sodium Bicarbonate
  • Sodium Poly Asparaginate
  • Tetra Acetyl Ethylene Diamine (TAED)
  • D-glucitol
  • Sorbitan Sesquioctanoate
  • Capryl Glucoside
  • Protease
  • Amylase
  • Glycerin
  • Fragrance
  • Limonene
  • Sodium Gluconate

I have yet to try out any of the other Ecover products, but plan on purchasing:


The Dishwashing Liquid! One of my friends swears by it! I also plan on purchasing:


The Laundry Detergent! Another one of my friends told me it seriously rocks and I tend to trust her on matters having to do with laundry, as we both cloth diaper! I have got to try this stuff out!

I am extremely happy with my Ecover experience and I cannot wait to try out more of their fabulous eco-friendly cleaning products.
