1 Get rid of your bathroom bin - Make this the first step. We’re lazy creatures so trust me; every time you are tempted to throw something away, you’ll have to walk to the nearest bin.
2 Replace packaged items for package-free items - A lot of soaps are available package-free, the same goes for toothpaste, body lotion, deodorant. For liquid products, either try to buy it in bulk or even better, refill your existing container in a package-free store.
3 Replace disposable items with reusable - The number of things we use once and then throw away in our bathroom is shocking. Ranging from feminine hygiene protection to razors. Seek sustainable alternatives.
4 Create your own products - Keep it simple. Plain baking powder does the job as a deodorant. For body lotion use coconut oil. Looking for a scrub? Try sugar mixed with oil.
5 Downsize - We tend to have multiple products when one item would suffice. Do you really need to have a morning face lotion and a night cream? Check out zerowastenest.com for more tips.
