It's plastic-free July! Accept the challenge and kick all those plastic bottles out of your bathroom!🧴🛁
The impact of plastic-free
Did you know that only 9% of the plastic ever made has been recycled? Even scarier, most of the plastic in circulation in the world can't be recycled and of the 260 million tons of plastic the world produces each year, about 10 % ends up in the Ocean and landfills. An estimate calculated that by 2050 there will be 850-950 million tonnes of ocean plastic vs total fish stocks of 812-899 million tonnes. If we don't act now, plastics will outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050! Yikes!!
Furthermore, a study found out that the carbon footprint of liquid toiletries is 25% larger than in bar form on a per-wash basis. Liquid products also need 5 times more energy to produce and can use 20 times more packaging. All of this makes liquid products heavier and less efficient to transport from the factory to your shower.
How can we all help?
Like hand soaps and shower gels, single-use plastic tends to be the default packaging for most shampoos and conditioners.🚿
The truth is shower gel, liquid hand wash, liquid shampoo and liquid conditioner contain a higher proportion of water, up to 80% sometimes! Soap, shampoo and conditioner bars can easily replace them all and, as a bonus, they last a lot longer and are more cost effective.
For example, an average person spends 9 bottles of hair conditioner 🧴, 11 bottles of shampoo 🧴, 12 bottles of shower gel, and 14🧴 bottles of liquid hand soap per year. Instead, if you start using products in bar, you will only need in a year: 3 conditioner bars 🧼, 4 shampoo bars 🧼and 10 bars of soap🧼, if you use soap bar to wash your hands and shower. By making this swap, you are already being an eco-warrior and saving a lot of money!

Less Plastic = Healthier Earth
Avoiding plastic results in fewer Co2 emissions from production, transportation, recycling, and disposing of the waste materials. Less plastic also makes our food and ecosystem cleaner and safer.
Plastic bottles take 450 years to decompose! Can you imagine how much faster the planet would heal, and how much healthier would be, if we'll all do our little share to help the water and soil to get rid of micro-plastics and toxic substances?
