Thanks to our reusable eco dryer balls we avoided the use of 445 Million dryer sheets and 4.4 Million bottles of fabric softener. That equals 1,864,000 lbs of plastic and a pile of dryer sheets 143 miles high!
Thanks to shorter drying times, together we have saved enough energy to power 21,100 homes for a full month.
We plant one tree towards permanent reforestation for every item sold. So far we've planted over 530,000 trees and provided 5,300 days of fair wage work to the people planting them!

Our mission is to provide plastic-free alternatives to common household items. Thanks to our best selling Eco Dryer Balls, we have prevented the use of 445 million dryer sheets and 4.4 million bottles of plastic softener so far. That is over 1,864,000 lbs. of plastic waste that didn't end up in our landfills and oceans!
Each set of Eco Dryer Balls reduces drying time by 20% to 40%. All these savings build up, and over the last 6 years we estimate a total of over 220 Gigawatts were saved by those who made the switch to Friendsheep Eco Dryer Balls alone. That's enough energy to power 21,100 homes for a full month - or if you prefer to send Marty McFly back to the future 182 times - wow!
Healing our planet. We are partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects and have pledged to plant one tree towards permanent reforestation for every item we sell (yes, even the smallest pet toy counts!). Since starting the program we have planted 530,000 (over half million) trees and provided 5,300 fair wage work days in Madagascar, a nation with more than 200,000 unique species endangered by the unregulated deforestation of the last decades.
