11 Ways To Make Your Bathroom Eco-Friendly

Our bathrooms can be stocked with an abundance of sneaky single-use plastics that we don’t always realize! We are here to switch to more sustainable, plastic-free options that will lessen our environmental impact. By the end of this list we want to transform your bathroom into a plastic-free, water-efficient space filled with lovely, natural ingredients. Better for your hair, skin, teeth and planet!

 

Bar Soap

 

Shampoo + Conditioner Bars

  • More bottles to rid your washroom of! Like liquid soap, shampoo and conditioners come in plastic bottles that are not often reused. Swapping out the liquid option for the bar will help to cut down packaging in the bathroom.

  • The bars from SayNoap smell amazing and are long-lasting! A plastic-free, sustainable and performance eco-friendly product.

Bamboo Toothbrush

  • This is one of the easiest switches! Protect your gums and the environment, bamboo is a biodegradable product. So, choose bamboo over plastic the next time you restock and bring an environmentally friendly smile to those pearly whites!

 

Toothpaste Tabs

  • These are a game-changer! No more tubes for your toothpaste, substitute it for toothpaste tabs. Another product with plastic-free packaging and better ingredients for the planet. Replace artificial ingredients and sulfates with all-natural ingredients because it feels better to read “charcoal powder” and “peppermint oil” than “titanium dioxide” and “diethanolamine”.

  • To make this sustainable switch, check out Huppy or Bite!

Mouthwash Tabs

 

Natural Cleaners

 

Natural “Sponges”

  • Soak up sustainability and get yourself a sea sponge! A natural, eco-friendly alternative to washcloths or shower poufs.

  • These sponges are cut from the seafloor but are able to regenerate like a plant, making them a renewable resource! They have natural enzymes that give the sponge antibacterial and antifungal properties – preventing the mold and mildew that grows on your washcloth or pouf.

Shower Head That Uses Less Water

  • Shower time- when we use and waste the most water! We need to get our showerheads all about high efficiency and low flow!

  • To be considered a “low-flow” showerhead, it will use no more than 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM). Some of the best options can get as low as 1.5GPM, lessening your shower water-use by 40%. You’ll feel better washing your new shampoo bar out of your hair knowing you’re being efficient and saving water.

  • There are so many great options to choose from! 

 

 

 

Metal Razor

  • Plastic razors are in company with plastic straws and plastic bags when it comes to damaging the environment. So, shave the waste while you shave the hair!

  • Swapping out the disposable razors for a metal safety razor is friendly to both your wallet and the planet. Plus, it looks pretty cool and will save you money in the long run.

Recycled Toilet Paper

  • An opportunity to save trees! Like most recycled options, this toilet paper is better for our forests and water supply, while protecting habitats.

  • Check out 100% recycled toilet paper with plastic-free packaging by Who Gives a Crap. They say their 3-ply jumbo rolls are, “as soft as unicorn kisses and strong as 1000 ponies.” That has got to be great for the bum and the world.

  • Another toilet paper hack- look for plastic-free packaging!

 

Leave your body and your conscience clean in your new and improved bathroom! Changes as simple as dental floss and razors can have such a giant impact on our planet.
