Plastic waste is a problem in the bathroom – from toothpaste tubes to shampoo and liquid soap bottles. Can you ditch plastic without sacrificing your skin and hair regimens?
Here are some tips we found useful:
Buy cleaners in bulk - We use a septic tank friendly bleach and it cleans like no other toilet and shower cleaner! Baking Soda in a shaker tin works wonders in the sink on toothpaste scum!
Use hard soaps - hard soaps stop the need for plastic pump bottles and they last a long time. And because bar soap doesn’t contain as high a proportion of water as shower gels or liquid soaps, bar soap tends to last a lot longer and is more cost effective. Buy a beautiful soap dish and enjoy washing your hands the way we used to!
Try a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. The market for bamboo products has exploded in recent years and there are now quite a few bamboo toothbrushes to choose from.
