4 easy sustainable bathroom swaps

4 easy sustainable bathroom swaps

July 28, 2019

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of changes one can make to lead an entirely zero-waste lifestyle. To us, it’s all about making small and incremental changes - such as simple, zero plastic bathroom swaps!

Here are some of our favourites: 

Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Who would’ve thought! But yes - Bar None Shampoo and Conditioner Bars typically last longer than average shampoo and conditioner bottles. Our bars are made with vegan and cruelty-free ingredients and are wrapped entirely in eco-packaging, so there’s a lot to celebrate! Our bars are palm oil free and will leave your hair feeling fuller and softer.


Bamboo toothbrush

Check out these Eco Bamboo Toothbrushes from Kappi, they are made with sustainably sourced bamboo, BPA-free bristles and they’re vegan! The handle is even biodegradable and can be composted. You can even get one for every season. Who knew a simple daily routine could be such a game changer! 


Bar soap


Once upon a time these might have felt...daggy? But now they are an obvious and easy swap for your shower routine. You can get these from the supermarket or even make your own. Bar soap is also often cheaper than liquid soap and is better for your skin and the environment. Check out Ecostore's Coconut Bar Soap!


House-made cleaners


This might seem like a task in itself, but making your own household cleaners can be easier than you think. Sprinkling about a tablespoon of bicarbonate soda on the desired space and squeezing the juice of a lemon across the same space will create a fizzing effect - with bicarbonate soda perfect for its antibacterial qualities. Cheap, easy and better for your health too!

We hope this makes things a little easier for you. Here’s to a more zero-waste friendly lifestyle - baby steps!
