Krya’s first sustainable goodie

This post was last updated on January 4, 2023 by Preethi Sukumaran

Today is the first day, of a super exciting year. A brilliant day to talk about the first sustainable goodie from Krya.

So we’ve made a detergent. By powdering a fruit.

sustainable goodie: the krya classic detergent made from a fruit

It washes really really well. In our washing machine. And in a bucket when we feel like it.

We’ve washed everything known to us with the fruit that’s a detergent.  It Works.

We save tons of water per cycle – because it is a non-fussy fruit, you need to rinse just once.

And we direct all the wash water into the garden and not down the drain – it is safe because, hey, we are washing with a fruit.  And our plants grow really well.

So we’ve established it is a goodie.

Now for the part that makes it a sustainable goodie:

  1. It is a fruit.
  2. It is a forest collected fruit.
  3. It is a forest collected fruit sourced from tribal co-operatives .
  4. It is a forest collected fruit sourced from tribal co-operatives bought at fair prices.
  5. It is a forest collected fruit sourced from tribal co-operatives bought at fair prices that is hand picked, and solar dried and processed at the Krya facility to make a detergent.

We’ve been using this fruit, which is a detergent, exclusively for 1 year to this date.

Happy new year! And Happy washing to you too with the Krya Classic Detergent! Here’s where you can find out more about how we make detergent from a fruit, how you can use this fruit to clean your home and many more natural ways to clean your home.
