If you want to reduce how much plastic use use then a great place to start is in the bathroom!
I bought these products from Acala Online, which is an eco friendly online beauty store. I love shopping at Acala as all their products are made with natural ingredients/materials and are responsibly packaged.
Geoorganics Bamboo Toothbrush - Slightly softer than a normal toothbrush so it’s better for sensitive teeth and gums. This one has a charcoal head so it promotes whiteness! Win win!
Happy Holistics Organic Soothing Body Butter - made with soothing aloe vera and lavender it smells great and relaxes before or after a busy day. To use: After a shower or bath warm a small scoop of butter between your hands and apply where needed. It’s non-greasy and my usually dry skin feels better than it has done for a while! Also I have been using this body butter for about 2 months now and I’m only just half way through the pot.
Hydrophil Bamboo Cotton Swabs - exactly the same as plastic ones but they are made from bamboo and biodegrade; brilliant! They are a lot stronger than plastic ones too!
Kutis Lavender and Bergamot deodorant - I love this deodorant by Kutis. It smells great and stops me sweating even in hot weather. The only downside for me is that it didn’t last very long maybe 6 weeks. ( I could have been putting too much on, I’m not sure) so I will be buying another to test again!)
Hand and nail brush from All Natural Soap Co - Fully compostable and made from bamboo. No need for a nasty plastic one!

Other ways to use biodegradable products in the bathroom are:
Using soap bars in the shower, for your hands and face
Using a natural luffa or sponge to wash
Natural bath salts for a relaxing bath!
