We all tend to accumulate a lot of stuff, and overall plastic stuff, in our bathroom. Today, we present you 5 basic products for a zero-waste, eco-friendly and healthy bathroom.
One of our favourite soap bar is the Marseille olive soap block. It is 100% natural, you can easily buy it in bulk and it is very good for your skin since it is made with 72% of olive oil. However, there are a lot of different kinds of soap bar. The best ones are those with the shortest list of ingredients and those that don’t contain preservatives, dyes or perfumes.
Usual liquid shampoo can be made with harmful chemicals and contain plastic microbeads which have a huge impact on the environment and human health. The best solution is to go back to shampoo bars. You can find some that are very natural and respectful of both your health and the planet. We especially like the ones from Pachamamai and Zorro d’Avi.
100% biodegradable toothbrush
Each of us will use 300 toothbrushes during our lifetime (4 toothbrushes per year). A single conventional toothbrush weighs approximately 18 grams (0.63 oz.). We will as a result will throw away about 5,5 kilos of non recyclable plastic toothbrushes. That is why one of the basics of a zero-waste bathroom is the 100% biodegradable toothbrush. It is made with a wooden handle and natural bristles, so when you have to replace it, can go directly to the compost!
We are super fans of the refillable organic vegan (perfect!!) toothpaste from Pachamamai. It is super fresh and very practical when travelling. You just have to buy it once with it’s small metal box and then you can just order the refills.
Reusable makeup removers
We all use a huge quantity of single use cotton pads or wet wipes to wash our face. A very simple, ecologic an economic way to avoid all this waste is to replace them for reusable makeup removers. You can also find them made from organic cotton. It is the best option for both your face and the planet. You will use and wash them over and over again!
