The easiest room in the house to reduce wastage in is the bathroom. Compare it to the kitchen, where you produce tons of waste per year. Your bathroom can become the most eco-friendly home in your house in a few easy steps. If you want to know how, read more below.
Minimise the amount of plastic you use
There are often shampoo and conditioner bottles for every member of the family, as well as gel, body wash, and toothpaste. If possible, buy larger bottles of product, or buy products that the whole family likes to use. This way, you won’t be disposing of 10 empty bottles. Biodegradable bottles are also an option, and are much better for the environment.
Refill your bottles where you can
Buy bottles that can be refilled, and top up your products when required. This way you are reducing the amount of waste littering the earth, and saving money. Refills are cheaper than buying entirely new products.
Support companies that are “green”
There are many companies out there who create products and packaging that are eco-friendly. These companies often make use of closed-loop production- this means that their packaging is created in an eco-friendly way, and they will receive any empty containers to refill them. The packaging is usually glass or metal, both of which can be reused.
Try to use products that are reusable or recyclable
Toothbrushes are disposed of every 6 months, so buy bamboo or wood toothbrushes that are biodegradable.
