Thousands of plastic soap and shower gel dispensers and shampoo bottles are thrown in the bin every day, and many of these are not even recyclable.
While giving up flying is too big of a sacrifice for most of us going about our day-to-day lives, there are some easy and cheap changes we can make that will help to reduce our carbon footprints a little bit. And if everyone does a little bit, we will start to see results.
So, next time you run out of shower products, make your home a little greener by switching to shampoo bars and bars of soap. They take up less room in your bathroom caddy too, which is another space-saving bonus! These are the best shampoo bars I've tested to date:
I have tried quite a few shampoo bars. Some have left a soapy residue in my hair or irritated my scalp. The best shampoo bars I've found are the Faith in Nature shampoo bars. They lather up really well, leave no residue, is kind to the scalp and have a lovely soft scent – as well as Lavender and Geranium, there is also a Coconut and Shea Butter offering – plus it's 100% natural origin and is free from SLS and parabens.
They last a good few weeks too and, at just under £6, are pretty good value and to top it all off, there is no bottle to throw away at the end. They are the best shampoo bars I've tried so far.
As well as shampoo bars, go back to buying good old-fashioned bars of soap as well, pop them by the sinks in the kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom and use them instead of shower gel in the shower and bubble bath in the bath tub. I haven't tested any, but you can also get hair conditioner bars too, so you can make your bathroom shelf completely plastic free. More environmental brownie points for you.
