Zero waste body care swaps

Adopt a zero waste body care routine and say good riddance to bathroom rubbish!

A standard bathroom can contain cupboards full of toxic and disposable products from plastic toothbrushes to disposable sanitary products. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approximately two billion disposable razors enter landfill every year. Additionally, it is estimated women use between 10,000 to 12,000 disposable sanitary products in their lifetime. Adopting a zero waste body care routine is an easy way to reduce your waste. It is as simple as swapping the disposable items you normally use for environmentally friendly reusable options.

10 zero waste body care swaps:
  1. Disposable razor > reusable safety razor
  2. Disposable pads and tampons > menstrual cups and reusable cotton pads
  3. Plastic loofah > sea sponge
  4. Synthetic body brush > natural sisal body brush
  5. Deodorant in a can > deodorant in a glass jar
  6. Plastic toothbrush > bamboo toothbrush
  7. Body wash in a plastic bottle > a bar of soap
  8. Packaged skincare > DIY skincare using natural ingredients
  9. Plastic hairbrush/comb > wooden or bamboo hairbrush/comb
  10. Packaged Shampoo and conditioner > shampoo bar and apple cider vinegar rinse 
Products can be purchased in our four Brisbane stores and online here.
