Washkers – prepared conkers for you to wash your clothes with.
Using conkers or horse chestnuts is a free way for you to make sure your washing chemical free and will do no harm to our world.
I have used them for four years now, and every year I get to have lots of conversations with people helping them start this journey.
The one thing I found was that even when people really loved using them, preparing enough to last a family from session to session was quite hard for many.
Pressures of modern life, working, parenting, or not having anywhere close to collect conkers, and for many not having the physical ability to chop and dry was the biggest barrier to having enough for a whole year.
So WASHKERS was born.
I will always provide the instructions and help people prepare their own, but for those that can’t I hope that by offering washkers for sale I can help them on the journey of regenerative modern living.
Here is my post on how to make your own – and how the journey started
When someone buys washkers from me, they are directly supporting a UK based, non profit that works towards putting more back than it takes from the biosphere.
Every year we plant a minimum of 30 horse chestnut trees, more if we can plus other spices of trees.
Our packaging is upcycled 100% cotton material so it can be composted when you have finished using it – although they make great produce bags, or storage bags. You can even post back to us to refill if you wish, all before it heads to the compost pile.
So what are you waiting for ? why not try some today, see if you like them before conkers session gets here – October – and then you can either make your own or keep supporting New Forest Aquaponics cic with our regenerative work supporting our local community.
Until I work out how to add a shopping cart please could you use this link to purchase the washkers.
Please note to reduce our impact, as we have to travel by car to visit a post office we post all orders once a week.
Happy washing 🙂
