Sponsor Spotlight: A Happy Green Life Detergent {Review}


If you're looking for an easy way to go green, A Happy Green Life natural laundry wash is the way to go! Founded by two eco-minded mamas early in 2012 looking for a way to greenify the lives of families while adding funky-fresh fun to an everyday chore: laundry!


Yep, that's by big bag-o-awesome up there. I got to try a big bag of A Happy Green Life in the Country Apple scent, yum! Actually, I should say that I am currently trying the bag, as it lasts 50/100 wash loads and lasts forever!

By this time in my cloth diaper journey I've tried a few detergents on Jace's dipes. Though most of them smell wonderful right out of the bag and in the wash, the scent disappears as soon as the clothes come out of the dryer. Boo. A Happy Green Life has stumbled upon something amazing...a formulation of great smelling fragrance oils (not perfumes, there's a difference in the chemicals!) that are not only nice for your own clothes but are cloth diaper-safe, too! They use natural essential oils and synthetic fragrance oils and come up with creative, funky names like "Bite Me," "Doodle Bug," and "Monkey Farts" to add a little pizazz to an otherwise mundane chore.

So what exactly is in A Happy Green Life, you may ask? It's made up of naturally-occurring chemicals like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and contains:

  • NO Borax (Borax can deteriorate elastic and break down cloth diaper materials)
  • NO optical brighteners
  • NO soap flakes or residue-leaving soaps
A Happy Green Life is safe for ALL laundry! Cloth diapers, family laundry, undergarments, even military uniforms are safe. 

I have to say that I've found A Happy Green Life to be one of, if not the, most effective laundry wash for Jace's cloth diapers and our family's general laundry. Our clothes have never felt so clean! We rent, so most of the time I do laundry at the laundromat and don't get to enjoy the awesome smell emitting from the washer and dryer while A Happy Green Life is doing it's thing. But boy do I love that fresh, warm, appley smell when they come out of the dryer. People probably think I'm nuts, sniffing my baby's clean diapers and inserts...I just want to make sure they're fresh! Sheesh!



A Happy Green Life natural laundry wash is sold in several great scents in bags of 50/100 loads, or in a trio of sample packs (above.)
