5 Simple Swaps for a Zero Waste Bathroom

This is going to be a quick blog post to share five easy zero waste swaps for the bathroom - these five swaps are great for beginners.

I’m trying to write short blog posts to accompany all of my YouTube videos, and this is a follow up to a post I did a couple month’s ago 5 Easy Swaps for a Zero Waste Kitchen.

Speaking of which, if you haven’t check out my YouTube channel… what are you waiting for? Head on over and subscribe!

1. bamboo toothbrush:

This should come as no surprise, but once you finish with your current toothbrush why not switch to a bamboo one? Brush with Bamboo is my all time fave!!

I have been working with Brush with Bamboo for years! They were actually the very first sponsored post on GZW and we’ve had a great relationship ever since. There are tons of other bamboo toothbrush companies that have popped up since (BWB was the first on the scene!) and I don’t think any hold a candle.

2. safety razor:

I love using a safety razor. Am I slightly scared of it? Yes. But only a little. I’ve used one for years and I’ve only nicked myself a few times. This is the razor I have.

Be sure to check out this post if you’re looking for a guide to safety razors and this one if you’re wondering how do I clean my safety razor?

3. bar of soap:

Does a simpler swap exist? Change out your crazy colored body wash for something a bit more natural… like a bar of soap! I talked all about this one in my Winter Favorites Video.

The my favorite videos are some of my favorite to film… because who wouldn’t want to talk about their favorite things. In true zero waste fashion, mine are made up of things that bring me joy like older items and something that aren’t even things!

4. toner:

So, I’m not really sure if this is a tip or swap - I’ll let you decide! Instead of letting your toner absorb into your reusable cloth pads, put your toner in a spray bottle! Boom, less waste.

Pour your toner into a spray bottle, and then spritz your face and let it air dry. I used an old spray bottle, but also have several of these and LOVE them.

This one simple swap has doubled the life of my toner bottle! And, my skin care routine isn’t cheap so I love that I’m saving money and wasting less.

5. dry shampoo:

Now, you know how much I LOVE my dry shampoo, I’ve got a full post and recipe on How to Make Eco-Friendly Dry Shampoo.

And, I love that I store it in the most adorable salt shaker that looks just like Nala! A friend picked it up at a thrift shop a few years ago.

Of course, if DIY isn’t your thing, here’s two dry shampoos with clean ingredients that come in recyclable and/or reusable packaging. La Tierra Sagrada and Captain Blankenship.

I hope you enjoyed this short video and blog post! What’s a simple swap you’ve made to make your bathroom more eco-friendly?
