15 Simple Swaps for a Zero Waste Bathroom
The bathroom may be the smallest room in the house but man-oh-man can it be wasteful! The average woman puts on 12 products in the morning before she leaves the house, but we typically have a lot more in our cabinets, under our sinks, and in the shower.
I’ve found one of the best ways for me to reduce my waste is to implement a one-in-one-out rule. So, I can’t actually bring in a new product until I run out of an old product.
I don’t know why, but when ever I started running low on an item, I would immediately run to the store to buy a new one and typically wind up picking a few extra things. This resulted in me having an ever growing expanse of beauty items. Most of these items were never even used or only used once.
If you’re wanting to reduce your waste in the bathroom, I would definitely start with making sure that you will actually need and use what you bring into your home.
