Developed by a team led by Deirdre Imus, founder and president of the Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology at Hackensack University Medical Center, Imus GTC's Citrus Sage detergent uses natural enzymes to attack stains and essential oils for a mild, pleasant scent. An added bonus: 100 percent of the profits go to the Imus Cattle Ranch for Kids with Cancer. $6.95.
Ecos Ultra Concentrated detergent is low-sudsing and doesn't leave residue on clothes that can cause skin reactions. It also comes with a built-in soy-based fabric softener that eliminates the need for wasteful dryer sheets, many of which use beef fat as their secret softening ingredient. Look for it in a range of plant scents, including lemongrass. $6.79.
Method's 3x Concentrate in Fresh Air Scent is the perfect option for those who want that "fresh air" scent (without compromising the environment), this small, sleek bottle contains a highly concentrated formula, which means you'll get the same number of loads as from those bigger jugs, with less packaging. $8.
