The bathroom is that special place where you get to treat yourself and your body to some much-needed care at the beginning and end of each day. Luckily, it is also a place where you have SO many options to reduce your plastic and carbon footprint without giving up that lovely self-care routine!
We therefore absolutely love these community tips on how to be more sustainable in the bathroom.
LET’S SWITCH TO ALL BARS
I have made a switch to bar soaps instead of plastic bottles for my shampoo, conditioner and hand wash. @sustainable.elle
FOR YOUR LADY PARTS
Ditch the feminine products and switch to a menstrual cup or cloth pads. This is hugely impactful environmentally (all those chemicals and cotton saved!) but also healthy for your lady parts and it will save you $$. @naturallyjackielane
TAKE IT SLOW
Slowly replace your plastic products with plastic-free options as you use them up, for example when your shampoo runs out - switch to a bar or when you need a new toothbrush - go for bamboo. This makes it less overwhelming, less expensive and saves waste. @commondandelion
LOVE YOUR COMPOST
Add a compost bin in the bathroom since there are so many items which are compostable such as cotton balls, toilet paper inserts, paper q-tips, tissues, hair, nail clippings etc. @practically.simple
START WITH HYGIENE
I have changed my oral hygiene products to Georganicsuk’s bamboo toothbrush, natural toothpaste and natural floss. @debbi_
THE BIDET SWITCH
I think that the bidet is the invention of the century because it completely cancels the need for toilet paper. @tal_bahr
