Looking to reduce your single-use plastic consumption but don’t know where to start? Make a few simple plastic free product swaps around the home and see what works for you!
Shampoo is a quick win in the bathroom; simply swap your existing single use shampoo bottle for a shampoo bar. Try the popular Lush Shampoo Bar or a cheaper option from The Lather Box. They’ll last a lot longer than you’d think!
Deodorant sprays, roll-ons and other aerosols can be swapped out for easy plastic free alternatives. Check out Earth Conscious natural deodorant for under-arm freshness in cardboard tubes or metal tins.
Cling film and tin foil are easy kitchen product swaps. Try Beeswax reusable food wraps instead, suitable for wrapping fresh fruit and veg, cheese bread and deserts – pretty much anything you can find in the kitchen. Reusable wraps can last up to a year if looked after properly.
So there you have it. Three simple plastic free product swaps you can try at home right NOW. What are you waiting for?
