Did you know that for more than 130 years, Purex’s parent company, Henkel, has been dedicated to sustainable and responsible business practices. Through their brands and technologies, they work to meet the needs of people today without compromising the development opportunities of future generations. This principle applies to all their operations and throughout the entire value chain – from raw materials, production and logistics to the use and disposal of products.
Through the business activities and Purex products, they aim to make a valuable contribution to society. The basis for this is the vision to make people’s lives easier, better and more beautiful with their brands and technologies. Purex systematically focuses their activities throughout the value chain on the challenges of sustainable development as they relate to operations. Today, the Purex brand is committed to developing products that are readily biodegradable, are free of NPE’s, APE’s, and phosphates. Because of the commitment to using safer alternatives, the United States E.P.A. Design for the Environment program has awarded Purex Champion Status with their Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative.
Purex developed Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets with significant consideration to our environmental impact. You can also get laundry advice.
Less Water: As you may have noticed, liquid detergents have gone to smaller bottles and converted to a 2X Ultra Concentration. Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets take concentration to the next level! If everyone in the United States switched to buying Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets, 41 Olympic-sized pools worth of water would be saved each single refill purchase vs. purchasing a standard 50oz bottle of liquid detergent!
Less Packaging: The Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets Refill has 43% less packaging than the products it replaces. If every American bought just one Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheet Refill instead of even one bottle of liquid detergent, we could prevent the equivalent of 91 million detergent bottles (27 million lbs), originally destined for landfills, from being produced – keeping over 8 football fields worth of packaging out landfills.
Less Weight: With less water and packaging to transport, Purex is able to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation by 67%. That’s an equivalent savings of removing 3,143 cars from the road for a year versus the CO2 that would be generated from the same people buying a bottle of detergent!
Purex developed Purex Natural Elements with significant consideration to our environmental impact. Purex Natural Elements detergents are formulated with cleaning ingredients from plant based starting materials, fragrances that contain natural fragrance extracts, and naturally softened water. They have biodegradable, phosphate-free, concentrated formulas and come in recyclable bottles. Purex Natural Elements detergents include surfactants derived from renewable resources, such as palm and coconut. Additionally, the feedstock for all the surfactants used in Purex Natural Elements is plant based. Only the final conversion into surfactants involves petro-chemically derived ingredients. Using renewable plant based surfactants reduces the dependency on oil.
If 200 million consumers buy just one 50oz bottle of Purex Natural Elements detergent, they’ll be preventing the release of over 6.3 million gallons of oil based surfactants. Purex Natural Elements is the first 2x concentrated laundry product to receive recognition from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Designed for the Environment (DfE) program. The DfE Safer Product Recognition distinguishes chemical products that are safer for human health and the environment. This program makes safer cleaning products accessible to more people and makes safer products easier to identify. The program evaluates all ingredients in a product, and ensures that each is safer for people and the environment.
