Eco Friendly Bathroom Products For Every Household
When it comes to bathroom and hygiene products, you would be pretty hard pressed to find any that aren’t supplied in single use plastic containers. You just need to look in your shower to see the stacks of shampoo, conditioner and other toiletry bottles to see how many single use plastic items there is in your bathroom alone - it’s become a norm and something the majority are used to now.
But what happens to all that bad plastic once you’re finished with it? Some of it gets recycled properly but a large amount of it also goes straight to landfill and possibly finds its way into our oceans 🌊.
With that horrible thought in mind, we’ve put together a list of our absolute favourite eco-friendly bathroom products you can buy from us today to transform your bathroom into a plastic free paradise! We love them all and we’re sure you will too.
Top Four Eco Friendly Bathroom Products
Bamboo toothbrushes are an easy way to get rid of regular single use plastics that you throw away regularly. The toothbrushes we’ve created here at My Eco House, are anti-bacterial, biodegradable and keep those pearly whites gleaming. ✨
They are also fully recyclable, keeping your environmental footprint to a minimum in the bathroom. And they have soft bristles that will make sure you get the best clean, every time. That’s not all, these toothbrushes are also made from 100% bamboo which is a great alternative to plastic as it is a renewable timber that grows without pesticides.
Without starting to sound like your dentist, you should regularly change your toothbrush every 3 months or so. That’s why we put together the toothbrush bundle which gives you a new brush at the end of every season. They’ve been created with seasonal marks so you know which one to use next! And you don’t have to feel guilty about throwing your old one away.
Next up we have our exfoliating brush, everyone’s favourite bathroom accessory. This firm bristled, natural body brush will have your skin baby-soft all year round and is much better for the environment than one’s made of plastic.
The brush itself is made from lotus wood - another great plastic free alternative. (You can even build whole bathtubs from it!) Our exfoliating brush is a bathroom must-have, it’s handheld for better control, allowing you to polish and smooth away any dry skin.
PSA: Ensure the brush is kept out of wet locations to allow it to dry fully before next time use. So don’t leave it in the shower when you’re done with it!
#3 Bamboo Detangler Hair Brush
Third on the list, we have our bamboo detangler hair brush. The perfect hand-crafted hair brush, that will glide through all those pesky tangles every time. We’ve created this brush to be durable but also ultra lightweight! Made from organic bamboo, this hair brush will help gently loosen knots without breaking or damaging your hair.
As with all our My Eco House products, this hairbrush is environmentally smart. It’s been made from panda friendly bamboo from the Nanping Fujian region and is proven to improve scalp and hair health. We know that’s a real big statement to make - but if you don’t believe us, check it out for yourself.
Bamboo hair brushes are better for your hair mostly because they are soft, smooth and free from sharp corners. This means that when you pull the brush through your hair, they detangle gently. We’ve noticed since starting to this bamboo detangler, that we get a lot less hair breakage. The bamboo brush also causes a lot less static than a plastic brush, as plastic increases the electrical charge of your hair which is what causes static. So you’ll have healthier, glossier and shinier hair after just a few uses! It’s a win-win.
#4 Wooden Comb
Last but certainly not least, on our list of eco-friendly bathroom products, is the My Eco House Wooden Comb. Made from amazingly sustainable walnut wood, this comb is perfect for brushing wet or dry hair.
Again, the natural materials help enhance your hair's health - causing less static, less breakages and overall shinier and glossier hair. We made sure the comb was heat treated too, so it won’t splinter and catch your hair. As with most of our wooden products, try not to keep the comb in a damp area as getting it wet will speed up the decomposition process. And you want to make sure your comb lasts!
There you have it, four eco friendly bathroom products to get you started on a more eco-friendly journey. There’s plenty more where that came from, so keep your eyes peeled for more eco friendly bathroom products from the team at My Eco House very soon. 👀🌱
