One of the easiest switches in the battle to reduce plastic is from shower gel and shampoo bottles to soap bars. Soap has, obviously, been around forever, but there’s been a real revolution recently in making it as eco-friendly as possible, as accessible as possible, whilst not being the skin-drying-boring-smelling compromise that some bars are.
Who Gives A Crap, the plastic-free toilet roll delivery organisation, recently launched a new brand called Good Time which sees them branching out into soap and shampoo bars. You wouldn’t necessarily immediately think of turning to a toilet roll company for your nice hair care products, but these look pretty good.
I haven’t tried them myself yet, because my initial zero waste enthusiasm has seen quite the stockpile of soaps waiting to be used up, but these are next on my list once I do need to restock.
