Our Critical Cause

Our critical cause is to make true lasting change that helps save the planet.

Let’s Battle Plastic Together

At its core, you’ll discover that Tru Earth, is actually a movement (#TruEarthMovement). The Tru Earth team joins millions of equally committed people in more than 82 countries to combat the 645 billion plastic household product containers dumped in landfills and oceans globally each year. For every 32 laundry eco-strips purchased from Tru Earth, one plastic container is prevented from entering landfills and oceans. As we often say here at Tru Earth, many small hinges can swing this very very big door. Thanks for joining us in our current battle to eradicate plastic.

Your Purchase Helps People

Our donation program started as an initiative due to COVID-19 when household supplies were hard to find and aid organizations were struggling to ensure everyone had clean clothes. We saw this as a call for help and jumped into action. We have reached more than 800+ organizations including food banks who are stretched to their limits, maternity programs in the global south, local women’s shelters & non-profits across Canada and the United States. We would not be able to have such an enormous impact without the help of our customers, the #TruChangeMakers. For every subscription purchase, 32 loads are donated to an organization in our communities in need across the globe.
