Some people find it really difficult to make more eco-friendly swaps in their bathrooms, but we’re here to show you how to do it! It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, but it is actually really simple and can save you money in the long run. So, let’s get into it and find out how you can make your bathroom more eco-friendly!
Choose Products With Less Packaging
The first thing you should do is choose products with less packaging. Bathroom products always seem to come with so much packaging, so look for much more eco-friendly alternatives. For example, rather than choosing a normal shampoo, you can swap it out for shampoo bars with minimal paper packaging that can easily be recycled. Of course, it uses a regenerative material which is preferable over plastic. The same goes for the rest of your shower and bath products and oral health products (just check with your dentist Leamington Spa, London or LA based, before buying to make sure they’re effective for your oral health); then you should look for reusable bathroom spray bottles and then you can just buy refills for those. Don’t worry about throwing out anything that’s not eco-friendly, as that will be counterintuitive. So, use up whatever you currently have, and then when you need to replace it, start looking for eco-friendly alternatives.
Be More Conscious of Water Usage
Another thing you need to do is be more conscious of water usage. Not only does water cost you money, but it is also wasteful in terms of the environment. So, make sure you turn your tap off when you’re brushing your teeth, that you turn the shower off when you don’t need to rinse, consistently check for any cracks or leaks, and you could look to change your shower head and invest in one that is just as powerful but uses water much more efficiently. With this also comes eco-friendly plumbing, which is something to look into. There are so many options here, but being a bit more conscious about your actions is definitely advised.
Buy Eco-Friendly Toilet Paper
You should also look to buy eco-friendly toilet paper. When you buy cheaper or supermarket toilet paper, it is often not made in an environmentally friendly way at all. So, there are so many great brands out there who are committed to not only producing toilet paper in a more eco-friendly way but they are actively replanting trees to make up for what is being used. Some brands even use completely recycled paper for toilet paper, which is even better! Plus, these companies usually run off a subscription plan, so you input how much you use on average and then they will deliver it when it works out when you next need it, so running out will never be a concern again!
These are just a few simple changes you can make, without spending much money at all, to do your bit for the environment and make this room more eco-friendly. Knowing where to start when it comes to becoming more eco-friendly can be difficult, so we love to tackle one room at a time and list the things you want to try and implement over the next month, six months or year.
