Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
Our showers tend to be filled with plastic bottles. Shampoos, conditioners, body washes, cleansers, exfoliators… the list goes on. In Australia, we produce around 2.5 million tonnes of plastic per year — this equates to 100kg per person! Here’s the biggest problem: only 13% of this plastic is actually recycled. The other 84% goes straight to landfill.
Whilst recycling is good, we need to tackle plastic packaging right at the source, and instead, opt for plastic-free shampoo and conditioner bars! The average bottle of liquid shampoo or conditioner can be made up of 80% water, so it doesn’t make sense to pay for a big plastic bottle that’s full of water and packed with preservatives. Depending on your hair type and how often you wash your hair, a shampoo bar can provide the equivalent number of washes as three bottles of shampoo. A conditioner bar can last 6-8 months and save you purchasing five bottles of conditioner. Amazing, right?
