There are a few things to consider when making your bathroom routine more sustainable: cutting down on plastic packaging and single-use items, looking for products with less harmful ingredients, and opting for cruelty-free, ethically-made items.
Luckily there are lots of innovative alternatives available, from absorbent period underwear to shampoo and conditioner bars in plastic-free packaging.
Don’t feel you need to change everything at once, though – it’s more sustainable to use up products you have before buying eco-friendly alternatives.
Sustainable swaps - Deodorant
Natural deodorants may not stop you from sweating, but some brands are surprisingly good at deodorising.
If you don’t want to try making your own (there are lots of recipes online), NZ’s Little Mango and Australia’s Black Chicken Remedies are my tried-and- tested favourites – extra points to Little Mango for coming in a cute glass jar which can be repurposed after use.
