When released from our households, these chemicals end up in our water bodies where they cause eutrophication, a phenomenon where the water bodies become enriched with phosphates triggering an overgrowth of algae. This algae deprives water bodies of oxygen resulting in the loss of aquatic and marine life.

Phosphates are a major cause of water pollution in India leading to 42 percent of human and animal diseases. Most laundry detergents in the market today are phosphate based **
