Showers and Baths
Soap bar with washcloth
Use the soap on itself or put it into the washcloth to foam it up. Plus: cheap and looks luxerious.
Rub the bar on your scalp or in your hand to get it foaming, then use as normal shampoo.
Drop them in your bathtub. Done. Can also be used as beautiful decor, spreading good smell in your bathroom.
Uses a metal blade which can be recycled.
Actually a masage butter from Lush, but it moisturizes the skin very good. There are also real body butter options.
Selfmade in a glas container. Contains nothing but baking soda and water.
Chew these up with some water and start brushing. Bought at our local package free shop.
A simply toothbrush made of bamboo. The bristles are also made from bamboo, so it’s completely compostable.
Compostable floss in a glass jar
Beautifully packed in a glas jar. The floss itself can be bought without the jar to refill it.
Cotton cloths and organic oil
Removes your makeup without effort only with water. When your are using waterproof makeup use some organic oil instead.
When it comes to Q-tips you can purchase the completely plastic free ones. As simple as that.
Use this instead of tampons. It may cost you some more at first but it last for 20 years. Also feels more comfortable and has to be cleaned less than tamposn have to be changed.
Recycled or unpackaged toilet paper
Maybe the most simple swap. Just buy recycled. Or if you have the chance to do so, purchase plasticfree or even unpackaged toilet paper.
