Are you tired of constantly having to buy new bottles of shower gel, only to throw them away once they're empty? The average family gets through 24 plastic shower gel bottles each year!
It might be time to ditch the plastic and switch to a more sustainable option.
First of all, let's talk about why plastic shower gel bottles are a problem.
Plastic is a material that takes hundreds of years to break down in the environment, and every year, millions of tons of plastic end up in landfills or the ocean. This not only harms wildlife, but it also contributes to pollution and climate change.
So, what can we do about it? One solution is to switch to a bar of soap instead of using shower gel.
Bar soap is just as effective as shower gel at cleaning your skin, and it usually comes wrapped in more eco-friendly packaging such as cardboard.
Plus many shower gels are up to 2/3 water - that is a lot of money you are wasting on something that isn't actually washing you.
Plus, there are so many amazing options out there for bars of soap, from milk soaps, soaps with botanicals, right up to brightly coloured and highly scented bars. You certainly won't be short on choices.
Making the switch to a more sustainable shower gel option might take a little bit of effort, but it's worth it for the health of your skin and the health of our planet.
Plus, it's a small change that can have a big impact when it comes to reducing plastic waste.
