Zero Waste Bathroom: 5 sustainable bathroom brands to get you summer-ready

May 17, 2021

Bathroom products contain a huge amount of plastic and it’s very common for people to overlook their carbon footprint when it comes to this particular room. From washing to beauty to personal care, your bathroom routine is sure to create an enormous amount of plastic waste. However, we don’t tend to take recycling half as seriously in the bathroom as we do in the kitchen – largely due to a lack of convenient recycling bin space.

As shoppers are increasingly becoming more environmentally aware of the products that they purchase, many companies are coming forward to call themselves sustainable. But as consumers, we have a responsibility to recognise the brands that are truly reliable when they say they’re sustainable, and those who aregreenwashing. If you want to switch to more sustainable bathroom brands, it can be intimidating at first to work out who’s really telling the truth. That’s why we’ve created our top 5 guide to the best sustainable bathroom brands to try out.
