3 Simple Swaps For An Eco-Friendly Bathroom

3 Simple Swaps For An Eco-Friendly Bathroom

The bathroom is a space where we can easily make small changes to reduce our environmental impact. By making these simple yet significant swaps, we can create an eco-friendly oasis that promotes sustainability and contribute to a greener future.

Here are some simple swaps to consider for your bathroom:

Bamboo Toothbrush

Did you know that we send about 287,640kg of plastic toothbrushes to the tip every year in New Zealand alone, with much of that plastic ending up in our oceans?

Making the swap from plastic to sustainable bamboo brushes is a small step toward the larger goal of reducing plastic consumption.

Bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable, renewable, and provide a natural and effective way to care for your teeth. They offer the same quality and comfort as traditional toothbrushes while significantly reducing plastic waste. 

What's even more incredible is that every part of this versatile plant can be utilised when harvested. By choosing bamboo products, you actively contribute to reducing deforestation and preserving our precious forests.

In all of MyTreat's Eco July 2023 boxes, there's a handy charcoal-infused bamboo toothbrush by The Eco Brush for our subscribers to swap their old toothbrush with. This cute toothbrush features soft charcoal-infused bristles! Charcoal has been proven to be antibacterial and detoxifying. The handle is made from sustainably grown bamboo, making the handle 100% compostable!

Shampoo Bar

It's estimated that we throw away around one plastic bottle per month, and unfortunately, most of them end up in landfills instead of being recycled.

But there's an eco-friendly alternative: shampoo bars! These concentrated bars can last for 80 to 100 washes, compared to the 25 to 35 washes of a typical liquid shampoo bottle. That means less waste and more value for your money.

Not only are shampoo bars more sustainable, but they often come with minimal or no packaging, reducing waste even further. Plus, they are made with natural and cruelty-free ingredients, unlike many traditional liquid shampoos that contain chemicals and preservatives.

In all of MyTreat's Eco July 2023 boxes, there's Ama's Awaken Solid Shampoo Bar, designed for normal to dry hair. Crafted with care in New Zealand, this shampoo bar embodies the most natural way of washing one's mane.

Natural Soap

Trade your conventional soap for a natural, plant-based alternative. Natural soaps are made from gentle ingredients like essential oils and botanical extracts, providing a nourishing and eco-friendly cleansing experience. They are often packaged in compostable or recyclable materials, minimising waste.

In all of MyTreat's Eco July 2023 boxes, there's Little World's Organic Soap, which is said to be one of the cleanest, safest and best of quality skincare. From its all-natural ingredients to the packaging itself, with labels printed on Rockstock, one of the world's most environmentally friendly papers. It is manufactured from waste stone and building industry offcuts, so no trees are harmed during production.
