Powdered household bleach?

Is it possible to buy bleach in powder form that I can then dissolve in water to use around the house with a reusable bottle? I appreciate that bleach itself isn't green but I'm mainly looking to get rid as much of the single use plastic we use at the moment. However, if anyone can recommend an alternative product then that would be great.

You can buy bleach tablets at most supermarkets, a quick Google will point you in the right direction

Thanks. I didn't know they exist. The thing is they all come in plastic bottles, so whilst they are smaller and I would use less plastic overall it doesn't eliminate it completely. I was hoping that they might sell them in cardboard boxes.

I'd be surprised if you could get cardboard packaging, bleach is a corrosive substance so needs to be packaged in a way that won't break down if it gets wet etc, as cardboard would.
