You can help wildlife such as the Platypus by using phosphate-free detergents!

The iconic Australian Platypus is like no other animal on earth! Unfortunately poor water quality is threatening this species and many others.

Help wildlife from the supermarket!

Look out for the text 'phosphate-free' or 'no phosphates' on the packaging of laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent and surface cleaners.

Which brands are best for wildlife?

Zoos Victoria recommends Orange Power and Aware products as they are the only widely available brands that are phosphate-free and palm oil free – great for orang-utans and Platypus!


Other wildlife friendly products...

Heard of wild soap nuts? They are a completely natural and environmentally friendly cleaning alternative.

How can I help? 

You can help platypus and other local wildlife by making the switch to using phosphate-free cleaning products – Look for phosphate-free laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent and surface cleaner in the supermarket.

At the same time you can help save orang-utans from the brink of extinction by choosing Aware and Orange Power products – the only brands on the mainstream market that are both palm oil and phosphate free.

You can help Fight

Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.



Adopt Platypus

Experts are concerned Platypus populations are declining through habitat destruction, and from litter and detergent phosphates making their way into rivers. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the Platypus.
