Next time you’re in the bathroom… have a little look at how many plastic items you’re using to get clean.
*One survey showed the average UK person was using 5 five products in plastic packaging per day as part of their hygiene routine. Essentially the stuff is littered throughout the bathroom.
With recycling rates pitifully low, more and more of us are looking for ways to reduce our plastic consumption and this is one of the reasons why the smol revolution got personal.
hello bathroom beauties.
But there are SO many other ways you can save on your plastic use.
Let’s take a look at how much of a difference YOU could make with our top 10 new bathroom swaps.
10 swaps = a sweet total.
Ten simple swaps could save one person over 2.7kg of plastic in a year. Got more people in your household? Well then you’re going to save even more. And take it from us, you’re NOT going to miss the plastic. In fact it feels really good to purge it from your bathroom.
a note about recycling.
Of course it may not be possible for everyone to implement all the swaps above, so let’s keep one foot in the real world. And despite our concerns over our recycling systems it’s still better to try and recycle our empty plastics than put them in our rubbish bins.
So to that end, why not place a recycling bin in your bathroom? It will catch any of that surprise plastic and ensure you’re giving yourself the best chance of keeping it out of landfill.
revolutionise your bathroom.
The health & beauty industry is often associated with indulgence and decadence but the smol revolution is here to show that self-care doesn’t need to be packaged in plastic. We’ve got personal because we want to make a difference, not just for one month of the year but all year round, every year ongoing.
It’s time to change how we keep clean so time to shake things up in the shower!Explore the range here.
