Bamboo toothbrushes

Plastic toothbrushes are very hard to recycle as they are made out of hard plastic. Why not try out a bamboo alternative toothbrush? Snap off the head and reuse or compost the body of the brush when it needs replacing!

Ditch the face wipes

There are many plastic free alternatives to face wipes such as washable face cleaning cloths and sponges.

Say no to plastic bottles

Try out packaging free alternatives like shampoo and conditioner bars instead of buying single use plastic bottles and opt for bars of soap over body wash bottles!
