Plastic Swaps at Home - Bathroom edition

My plastic-free journey began at home. In the kitchen actually, with plastic-wrap being the first thing I stopped using. The bathroom is another great room to make great plastic-free swaps. Here are a few of my go-tos:

  • Safety Razor - a metal handle and replaceable (and recyclable) stainless steel blades make this a great swap for your usual plastic disposable razor. Take it easy though, they do take a bit of getting used to and are kinda sharp!

  • Shampoo and Conditioner Bars - These bars from Honua Bars are the bomb! pH balanced, soap-free and made in Australia, they lather deliciously, and 1 bar saves 3 plastic bottles.

  • Facial Cleansing Bars - Don't mistake these for soap, the Ethique cleanser bars come in a range for various skin types and are non-drying. All packaging is home compostable too!

  • Bamboo Toothbrush - The bristles need to be removed after use but bamboo handles are compostable. (Although if not kept dry, I do find the handles can gather mould quickly).

Other swaps include homemade or plastic-free cleaning solutions, DIY coffee scrub, or coconut oil hair treatments.
