In trying to live more sustainable the turn has now come to the bathroom. Going sustainable in my bathroom definitely has room for improvement, so I thought I would share 6 different products for you to change.
Organic cotton buds – I buy organic instead of plastic cotton buds. These cotton buds are 100% biodegradable as they have cotton stalks instead of plastic. They are better for the environment and as a bonus you can compost it! Yay!
Bamboo toothbrush – A bamboo toothbrush is actually on the top of my need-to-buy list. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they also look very beautiful compared to a toothbrush in plastic. Also the price is almost to the same as a plastic toothbrush and in great quality too. What’s not to like?
Organic cotton pads – As with organic cotton buds, why not buy organic cotton pads too? They are biodegradable and compostable, and not that expensive compared to non-organic. Even better, instead if cotton pads, you can use a knitted cloth for cleansing your face. That will also do the job.
Menstrual cup – With a menstrual cup you never have to buy tampons and sanitary again. The cup is manufactured in TPE, without silicone, latex, BPE and phthalates. I is also hypoallergenic and recyclable. I have just bought one from OrganiCup, and I must say, I am fan! Very easy to use and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable as I first thought it would be. If you don’t feel comfortable using it, luckily there are great alternatives like organic cotton tampons and sanitary.
EcoSavers – Reduce your water usage when showering with a water saving shower head from EcoSavers. Through the unique mixture of air and water, this water saving shower head can save up to 70% of water. The shower head gives 4-7 liters of water per minute compare to normal shower heads, which use 11-12 liters per minute.
BIO-D Bathroom Cleaner – BIO-D is one of the most respected brands in environmental housekeeping products. BIO-D bathroom cleaner is manufactured in sustainable, naturally derived raw materials without petrochemicals, phosphates, preservatives, enzymes or synthetic perfumes. It is also hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. The packaging is recyclable. I have to buy this!
