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!
It lasts a good few weeks too and, at just under £6, is pretty good value and to top it all off, there is no bottle to throw away at the end.
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.
