Many products we use in our bathrooms every day either come packaged in plastic and/or contain microbeads, which are tiny plastic beads that get into our water system and damage marine life. So it’s especially important to strive for zero waste in this area of our lives.
And the good news is that having a zero waste routine can make you healthier, save you money even save you time. For example, unpackaged soap can replace shampoo, shower gel, face wash, hand soap and shaving cream. Baking soda can be used as toothpaste, deodorant, and exfoliating scrub. Invest in a bamboo toothbrush, a safety razor and a menstrual cup to eliminate disposables from your bathroom.
You can even pamper yourself with simple and healthy homemade face masks and beauty products that are 100% safe and will leave you glowing. Most of the ingredients can be found package-free at your local grocery store. Check out our pinterest page for inspiration.
And as far as toilet paper goes, it’s okay if you’re not comfortable using a bidet you can still use toilet paper. Just make sure to look for recycled toilet paper in paper wrapping.
