If You Care does a great job in the dishwasher with no toxic ingredients. The formula is mineral and plant based with powerful enzymes to dissolve stuck-on food and grease. The tablets are wrapped in a water soluble, PVA material. No need to unwrap. Just tuck them into your diswasher’s soap holder in the wrapper. They dissolve quickly and get right to work. Plastic Oceans and others dispute the claims that PVA film is fully biodegradable and may contribute to microplastics in oceans.
Packaging is recyclable cardboard. No plastic bottle, no energy wasted in transporting heavy liquid, no phosphates or chlorine. Just clean dishes with the planet in mind.
The 4 rating is due to unresolved concerns around PVA.
Planet-friendly rating: 4
