3 ways your plastic-free shower is helping the environment

3 ways your plastic-free shower is helping the environment

June 29, 2019

While it feels like you’re using shampoo and conditioner for a long time, single use plastics have an astronomical impact on our environment.


Moving to a zero-waste mentality and lifestyle can be daunting, but gradual changes are everything. Swapping single use plastics for recyclable and reusable materials, takeaway coffee cups, reusable bags - all these things count.


Small but effective changes in your daily routines will have positive long term effects on the environment, including moving to shower and conditioner bars over plastic bottles.


1. You’re being nice to animals

By using Bar None hydrating shampoo and conditioner bars, you’re single-handedly doing your bit - you’re looking after your hair and the environment. Bar None products are entirely cruelty-free and vegan, Bar None has never and will never test on animals and you can be sure nothing is ending up in landfill or the ocean.


2. No single use plastics

Single use plastics and non-biodegradable or recyclable materials end up in national parks, seashores, create pollution and contribute to greenhouse gases. Single use plastics are beginning to have a negative impact on wildlife, plants and the human population at an alarming rate 


3. Recyclable materials 

Bar None products are made with quality ingredients with less fuss and confusion. Bar None bars are wrapped and packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard packaging with an eco-coating. They last just as long as other shampoos and conditioners with plastic packaging, but are much better for the earth.
