3 easy ways to be more eco-friendly | bathroom

With the truly terrifying recent claim that there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050, many people are looking for ways to reduce their plastic consumption, and be a bit more environmentally friendly in general.

Here are 3 easy ways to do just that, by making small changes in your bathroom.

TOOTHBRUSH
Switch to a bamboo toothbrush. You can recycle a toothbrush, so it just ends up in landfill (or in our oceans). A bamboo toothbrush can be composted, and takes just 6 months to decompose. They may be a bit more expensive than a regular toothbrush, but the environmental impact makes it worth it. You can get one from Ethical Superstore

TOILET PAPER
Who Gives a Crap make all of their products with environmentally friendly materials, and they donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need. And NO trees are cut down to make their products – they’re either made with recycled materials, or bamboo. I tend to find recycled toilet paper a bit… ahem… “scratchy”. But Who Gives a Crap loo rolls are so soft! Definitely worth a try.

SOAP
Did you know that only 27% of plastic bottles are recycled? The rest sit in landfills, where they can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. So get rid of that plastic soap dispenser, and switch to regular soap instead. It cleans just as efficiently, and there is no waste.

Every little bit makes a difference!
