Dryer balls are reusable, and do not use chemicals like a traditional dryer sheet or fabric softener so they are an eco-friendly option. Plus, wool dryer balls are made of natural fibers. Energy efficiency: Dryer balls help separate the laundry in the dryer cycle so air can circulate better and because they work faster than single-use dryer sheets, they use less energy. This means that they’re better for the environment and better for your energy bills!
HOW ARE THEY MANUFACTURED AND IS THE PROCESS ECO-FRIENDLY ?
Dryer balls are most commonly made of tightly compressed wool. They help prevent laundry from clumping together in the dryer by tumbling between layers and separating fabric. This action allows warm air to circulate better which can even help reduce drying time.
(a) providing a piece of wool material weighing in the range of 54 g to 60 g; (b) folding the piece of wool material into a substantially spherical wool ball having a circumference in the range of 43 cm to 53 cm; (c) placing the wool ball in a porous bag; (d) sealing the bag to contain the wool ball therein; (e) washing the wool ball; (f) removing the wool ball from the bag; and, (g) air drying the wool ball.

HOW WE DISPOSE OF AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DECOMPOSE ?
Give them an occasional trim as needed, then toss them back into the dryer. Wool is biodegradable so can be planted in your garden as mulch to hold moisture. As they decompose they add nutrients to the soil. Or just hang them outside for birds to collect the wool to build their nests.
