In this week’s post, we’ll be looking how to go plastic free in the home. Let’s take tips from the Zero Waste Wanderess (who we interviewed earlier this year) and go through the home room by room. This is the first of two blog posts, in this one we will be looking at the bathroom and the kitchen, then next week the living room and bedroom.
It’s worth remembering though that it’s not worth throwing things out until they’re broken! We don’t want to generate even more rubbish. Rather it’s about replacing current items with more sustainable ones.
Let’s start with the bathroom.
In addition to containing microbeads, which are in various stages of being phased out by the industry, shower gels, for the most part, come in plastic bottles. These get thrown out when finished and almost inevitably end up in the landfill.
