How to Have a Plastic-Free, Ocean-Friendly Bathroom

Our bathroom habits may have a bigger eco-footprint than we think… Plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles, mascara, toothpaste, and soap dispensers often require special recycling methods, and if not adhered to, end up in the landfill. It’s hard to wrap our head around what this does to our planet, when we see and use plastic everywhere. You may have no idea how much our habits contribute to waste and plastic creation. For example, did you know…

  • According to National Geographic, “only 9% of the plastic that has ever been made has been recycled.” In correlation to the beauty industry, most bathroom & cosmetic plastics must be sent out to special recycling facilities, making it an inconvenient task for many.

  • “552 million plastic shampoo bottles end up in US landfills” each year due to improper recycling (Johnson & Johnson).

  • Each year “more than 120 billion units of plastic packaging are produced globally by the cosmetic industry, contributing to the loss of 18 million acres of forest annually” (Sherriff).
