People often ask about my zero waste journey and talk about how hard it must be. Lets get one thing straight - I am not completely zero waste - and I may never be, but most of the steps I have taken to minimise my waste can easily be adopted by any one. It wont hurt a bit, I promise. I wanted to do a little recap on my bathroom products just to show how small purchasing changes can significantly reduce the amount of landfill waste you produce.
Zero waste isnt just about minimising waste but its also a state of mind or consciousness. Particularly conscious consumption. Choosing what I consume now revolves around environmental sustainability and waste minimisation instead of trends or desires. I believe that the bi-product of over consumption and consumerism has been a disconnection to our natural environment.
Anyway, heres my zero waste bathroom alternatives!
