Live For Tomorrow A Great Local Green Product

Live for Tomorrow.
It’s a winner in our household.
LFT is the new kid on the block.
It’s a laundry detergent and fabric softener line that is made right here in Richmond.
Now laundry detergents and softeners for the most part are nasty things. They are full of harmful chemicals that are bad for the environment. But not LFT. All of its five products are phosphate free.
Phosphate is bad for the environment and the federal government has announced new regulations that will be in effect in two years.That means phosphates will no longer be allowed in our household cleaners,laundry soap and dishwasher detergent.
Now the big question. Why do we like LFT?The answer is simple – it delivers what it promises.
Take LFT’s powdered laundry detergent. It says that one-third of a cup will do one regular load of laundry and it does just that. The clothes come out clean and soft and smell great. Some other so-called Living Green detergents we have tried have required double the suggested dosage before the laundry was clean.
LFT’s products took eight months of development before they were launched. And the company believes in recycling and re-using. Once you have used your LFT product you can return the empty bottle to the original retailer for return to LFT. And that simple step – returning one bottle saves two pounds in green house gas emissions.
LFT products are becoming more readily available in Metro Vancouver.
The website has a list of who stocks it. It is in the where to buy section.
And, before we forget, our one litre bottle of powder laundry detergent was
good for 16 regular loads of laundry.
At $8.99 a bottle that is great in our books.
