Simple Zero Waste Bathroom Swaps That Will Save You Money

I thought it was about time I updated this post on our zero waste bathroom swaps. I’ve found some amazing brands doing wonderful things and love all the products we now use. The added bonus is that I’ve actually saved money!

This time two years ago our shower and bathroom surfaces were littered with bottle upon bottle of plastic packaged products that I would very rarely use. “I can’t get rid of them though”, I think to myself, you know just in case I need that random bottle of gifted shower gel shoved to the back of our over flowing cupboard.  

The clutter is overwhelming and I can never actually find what I need, rummaging through baskets filled to the brim with plastic bottles, tubs and packets of random face masks that I never use. Sound familiar?!

I buried my head in the sand about what was actually in the beauty and toiletry products I was regularly using, never mind their packaging.

Then I decided to try and reduce our plastic use. The Bathroom was one of the worst culprits in the whole house and it was so overwhelming I had no idea where to start or what to do.

I decided enough was enough. I went through every item.

Do I use it? How old is it? Does it need replacing?

I gradually minimised my huge collection of products and then slowly started to replace items as they ran out, with products packaged in less plastic, or even better zero waste. And for ones that contain natural ingredients. 

Spoiler alert, it’s actually fun! There is a whole new World of zero waste bathroom swaps to be made. That’s before you even venture into cruelty free beauty products. You will love exploring!

Since making the change I know a lot more about the ingredients in the products I use. My bathroom is calmer and a bonus, my skin is actually better.
