As a personal care brand committed to sustainability and veganism, Prezerve understands the importance of reducing plastic waste. And one of the best places to start? Your bathroom.
From shampoo bottles to toothbrushes, our daily routines can generate a lot of plastic waste. But with a few simple swaps and changes, you can make your bathroom a plastic-free haven. Here are some tips and tricks from Prezerve:
Choose plastic-free packaging
One of the easiest ways to reduce your plastic waste is to choose personal care products with plastic-free packaging. Prezerve offers a variety of plastic-free options, from shampoo bars to face wash bars. These products come in recyclable or biodegradable packaging and are 100% plastic-free.
Use syndet bars instead of liquid soap and shampoo
Liquid soap often comes in plastic bottles that can't be recycled. Switch to bars instead. Prezerve offers a variety of products in little bars - face washes, body washes, shampoos, and conditioners. Do you know what’s amazing? Not only are these plastic-free, but they are also extremely long-lasting and last up to 80 washes.
Use a bamboo toothbrush.
Did you know that most toothbrushes are made from plastic and take over 400 years to decompose? Switch to a bamboo toothbrush instead. Bamboo is a fast-growing, renewable resource, and the bristles on bamboo toothbrushes are made from plant-based materials.
Swap out plastic razors for safety razors.
Disposable razors are a major source of plastic waste. Instead, opt for a safety razor with replaceable blades. Not only is it a more eco-friendly option, but it can also save you money in the long run.
Try reusable cotton rounds.
Cotton rounds are a bathroom staple for many people, but they can generate a lot of waste. Instead, switch to reusable cotton rounds. Cotton rounds are made from organic cotton and can be washed and reused many times.
Opt for refillable containers.
If you do need to buy products in plastic packaging, look for brands that offer sustainable packaging.
