On average, a person begins and ends his or her day with different cosmetic essentials and products inside the bathroom. It results in a mess with disposable products manufactured using chemicals and toxic materials, which could cause health risks and environmental hazards.
What is Rubbish-free?
To put it simply, rubbish-free means that you would not contribute any waste to the world. There are a lot of rubbish-free substitutes to products that you usually use in the bathroom, and the truth is that these are made from organic ingredients that hydrate and promote healthier teeth and skin. You would be able to save your money and help in reducing wastes.
5 Rubbish-Free Products
1. Toothpaste Powder
Most of the toothpaste sold in the market have Microbeads for ‘scrubbing power’. These micro-grains get flushed from your sink into the ocean, which can harm the marine environment. You can create a homemade toothpaste powder by mixing:
- ¼ cup baking soda
- ¼ cup of coconut oil
- 15 to 20 drops of peppermint oil
2. Natural Deodorant
An alternative deodorant that prevents sweating is odor-neutralizing agents like tea tree oil and baking soda. They do not cause skin irritation.
3. Stainless Steel Razor
Razors that allow you to replace the blade are far better than the disposable ones because it disables you from throwing too much rubbish.
4. Shampoo and Conditioner Bars
These bath bars are better compared to those shampoo and conditioners contained in plastic bottles, for they only get thrown on the earth. A shampoo bar can last up to fifty washes, which makes it a greater option to one large-sized shampoo bottle.
5. Bamboo Toothbrush
There are a lot of plastic toothbrushes that get thrown away annually in the entire world and most of those go to the ocean, which takes more than a thousand years to deteriorate. Bamboo toothbrushes are more sustainable and are biodegradable, made with bristles that are biodegradable as well.
The next time that you are buying an item for your hygiene, think for yourself if these products maintain the world’s hygiene as well. What would a hygienic body mean if the world were not clean?
