Quick Sustainable Solutions for a More Eco-Friendly Bathroom

We’ve scoured the web to help you find quick, sustainable solutions for your kitchen, laundry room, and now your bathroom. It’s perhaps the easiest place to swap out single-use items.

From reusable makeup wipes to bamboo toothbrushes, you’ll have an eco-friendly bathroom routine in no time. Here are seven of our favorites to get you started on your way to more sustainable living.

Package Free Beechwood Toilet Brush

This untreated beechwood toilet brush upholds the aesthetic and is super affordable. With durable tampico bristles, it works like any other toilet brush sans the plastic emissions. At the end of its reign, you can compost the handle and bristles in your backyard. Just like any good sustainable switch, it comes package-free!

Marley’s Monsters Cotton Facial Rounds

Cotton rounds, cotton swabs, and cotton balls are the definition of single-use. After one swipe on the face, we toss them into the garbage destined for the landfill. Swap them out for these reusable cotton rounds. To clean, simply pop them in the washer with the rest of your laundry and tumble dry on low. Snag Marley’s Monsters’ sustainable storage container for your rounds.

Redecker Wide Tooth Comb with Handle

Plastic combs have a short life. Whether the bristles break off or the handle wears down. This waxed beechwood wide-tooth comb will last a lifetime. It is perfect for any hair type, but especially for getting through thick curls. If you’re more of a brush person, Package Free also has a wooden paddle brush that is a noteworthy alternative.

Package Free Bamboo Adult Toothbrush

Try this BPA-free, compostable, bamboo toothbrush made of plant-based bristles designed to get into the nitty-gritty of your teeth. Pair it with Davids Natural Toothpaste. It’s vegan, sulfate, and fluoride-free. Pick from toothpaste flavors: peppermint, spearmint, or charcoal.

Georganics Mouthwash Tablets

Sometimes a little mouthwash refresh is a perfect antidote to a garlicky meal. If you’re done with buying those plastic bottles that run out in a week, check out these mouthwash tablets. All you have to do is drop one in a few ounces of water and swish around like normal. Choose from spearmint, orange, peppermint, and charcoal.

Incausa White Sage Bundle

Make your bathroom fragrant without the toxic chemicals in traditional air freshener sprays. Try burning sage, sustainably harvested from California, to keep the smelly scents out.

Eco Roots Safety Razor

Go the extra mile and try this stylish eco-friendly razor made of zinc alloy and stainless steel. The set comes with five complementary blades, but you can up your skincare experience and go for Eco Roots’ Zero-Waste Shaving Kit. Everything in this kit will help you stay eco-friendly and give you that smooth, clean shave.
