Our Story: Meet Dropps

The original laundry detergent pod.
We like to think of ourselves as textile engineers-turned-detergent scientists.

They were the best of times. They were the worst of times.

Leaders in innovation.

Convenience with a conscience.

Compostable & Recyclable Packaging

Dropps ships to your door in a 100% recyclable, repulpable, and compostable cardboard box.

Be Part of the Solution

Our innovative recyclable, compostable, and repulpable product packaging doubles as the shipping container. Way less space and waste. Join us in the fight to eliminate single use plastic!

Our pod membrane is a biodegradable, water soluble film made of polyvinyl alcohol. When the film dissolves in your washer and enters the water stream in microparticles, micro-organisms that commonly exist in nature break down the PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) to water and carbon dioxide.

As many as 55 species of micro-organisms (including bacteria, yeasts and fungi) that are naturally present in water and soils are capable of breaking down PVA. Research has shown that in river water, PVAs take no more than 1 month to break down into their component parts.

The Global Plastic Pollution Crisis

Traditional liquid laundry detergents are usually packaged in high density polyethylene. 68% of these bottles are not recycled and contribute to the approximately 275 million metric tons of plastic waste that goes into our oceans and waterways annually.
