Stop The Plastic Tide From My BathroomHolly By Heart
By Holly by Heart
It happened again. This time in the bathroom, with an empty deodorant. I’m not starting this new lifestyle until January because Christmas is seriously not the best time to do anything but, oh my, I just cannot go back. That deodorant keeps looking at me from the bathroom bin. At least now the empty toilet roll tubes are making their way to the recycling bin. And I’ve never flushed wipes down the toilet, that’s far worse than putting them in the bin. Did you know what flushed wipes cause all sorts of problems and some poor sod has to go into the sewer to dig them out?
So, standing in the bathroom, trying not to look at the guilt inducing bin, I glance around. Toilet cleaner, bathroom cleaner, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel and conditioner all in PLASTIC bottles. Plastic toothbrushes, sanitary towels wrapped in plastic, anti bacterial wipes in plastic… this isn’t going to be easy. But these things take time and I’m not going to use all this stuff up just yet, but I’m not going to replace them with more of the same either. Time to do some research and look into alternatives. Wish me luck!
