Would you like to save over $100 a year in household supplies? Well - this low waste living option will be your new laundry staple.
Low Waste Living is a Numbers Game
When you think about it, low waste living is really a numbers game.
What one process or product can I use to reduce the amount of time and materials I was using before?
The math is pretty easy.
When it comes to our household waste, most of us are beginning to ask: do I really need so much?
And the answer is no!
Save yourself time and money by investing in fewer products, and by choosing those that provide a multi-purpose.
Alpaca Dryer Balls help you save on monthly expenses and promote low waste living by reducing the amount of energy and wasteful materials required to do your laundry.
And a pack of 3 will last you over 500+ loads!
But just how much money have you been wasting? Let’s take a look at the numbers!
How Many Loads of Laundry Does the Average Canadian Wash Per Year?
Canadian families are washing an estimated 2 loads of laundry a week per person.
A family of 4 is then looking at somewhere between 7-8 loads of laundry for the same time frame, for an average of 364 – 416 loads a year!
3 Ways Alpaca Dryer Balls Promote Low Waste Living
By converting to this low waste alternative, alpaca dryer balls eradicate the need for the following items:
1. Toxic Dryer Sheets
Alpaca dryer balls are a chemical-free alternative to your everyday toxic dryer sheet.
When you think about those single-use sheets, realize the astronomical amount you’d have to buy to keep up: between 364 – 416 a year!
Depending on the brand, the going rate is between 5 – 15 cents per sheet.
Your laundry is therefore costing you anywhere from $18.20 - $62.40 annually in dryer sheets alone.
2. Additional Fabric Softener
Alpaca Dryer Balls are naturally antimicrobial, and a superior softener to wool.
That means you can ditch your fabric softener all together!
If you head to your nearest grocery store, you’ll find the average bottle of fabric softener costs anywhere from $6-22, depending on the brand. And the bottles claim to last between 50-120 loads of laundry.
*While there is data to prove that the typical family uses much more than the recommended dosage of liquid softeners in each laundry cycle, we’ll keep things easy and use the above numbers to run our math.
Liquid softener thus costs an average of 10 - 25 cents per load, depending on the brand.
By ditching the antiquated liquid softener, you are now saving between $36.40 to $104 a year!
3. Unnecessary Electricity Use
Alpaca dryer balls are made from natural alpaca fibres and felted directly to the middle. This extensive felting process allows the balls to absorb more moisture and increase air circulation, resulting in your laundry drying faster!
Thus, by reducing dryer time and requiring less wattage and electricity, alpaca dryer balls promote low waste living by wasting less energy.
And the specific amount of energy you save is a direct translation to money saved on your next hydro bill!

And that’s not including what you’ll save in hydro/electricity fees.
