5 PRODUCTS IN YOUR BATHROOM YOU CAN MAKE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
In our everyday life, we often buy the same small everyday products. Unfortunately, most of these products quickly end up in the trash. Fortunately, many of the things we use in our everyday life can also be found in a sustainable version.
In this blog post, you can read how you can easily replace some of these products with environmentally friendly alternatives on your bath tub.
An ordinary toothbrush is often made of plastic and has a very short lifespan. A toothbrush is not good for the environment, as they are often reused, but instead go straight into the bin after approx. Two months.
Replacing your plastic toothbrush with a bamboo toothbrush is one of the easiest ways you can reduce your use of plastic. Bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable and compostable, as bamboo is a sustainable crop. They also look quite nice in the bathroom.
Unfortunately, not all types of plastic packaging are made to be used again. Soft plastics are not accepted for recycling in many areas, making toothpaste an item likely to end up in the bin when empty.
Fortunately, there are natural toothpastes on the market now, which at the same time only use packaging made from recycled materials.
- Shampoo, conditioner and body soap
Unfortunately, there are many harmful ingredients in our shampoo, conditioner and body soap, which are neither good for us nor the environment. In addition, the conventional products come in plastic bottles, which are absolutely not good for the environment.
By replacing your traditional shampoo, conditioner and body soap with a natural bar of soap, you can do both you and the environment a great service. Natural soap bars are rich in vitamins and are actually very good for your skin and hair.
At Naturam.dk we have a large selection of natural soaps. You can find our selection of soap bars here: https://naturam.dk/collections/boligtibehor
- Feminine hygiene products
Feminine hygiene products unfortunately contribute to the pollution of the earth. These are products that women use thousands of in their lifetime, but which unfortunately require a lot of resources to produce, and at the same time can be expensive to buy month after month.
Invest in long-lasting reusable products that fit your needs, comfort and budget. Menstrual cups are a good alternative to pads and tampons. Another alternative is to buy natural pads and tampons.
- Disposable creators
A typical disposable razor can only be used a few times before being tossed in the trash. Replaceable heads typically come in heavy plastic packaging that is difficult to recycle.
If shaving is your preferred method of hair removal, invest in an "old fashioned" razor made of steel or other eco-friendly material. When the steel blade is no longer sharp, you can simply change the head and they contain no plastic.
- Cotton swabs and cotton swabs
Cotton swabs and cotton pads are big culprits when we talk about environmental impact. The products are made of cotton and plastic and are used only once and then thrown away.
To limit plastic in everyday life, you can consider buying more environmentally friendly alternatives, such as cotton swabs made of wood and reusable cotton pads.
These changes may take some time to work into your normal routine, but they will quickly become part of your daily routine. You can then go into your bathroom with a clear conscience that you are doing something active for the environment and yourself.
