Zero Waste Shampoo and Conditioners

Zero Waste Shampoo and Conditioners


  Too many of the products we use each day create large quantities of plastic waste which can take an extremely long time, sometimes up to 500 years, in order to break down. Two such household products are traditional shampoos and conditioners which come in plastic bottles. Did you know in the United States, more than 552 million shampoo bottles end up in landfills every year? For those who want to help reduce their home's waste, switching to zero waste shampoos and conditioners is a great way to go. 

  Zero waste shampoo and conditioners come in a bar form removing the need for plastic bottles while also being easier to store, gift, or travel with. This also helps reduce the stress of shampoo and conditioner bottles falling on you as you are trying to enjoy your shower. These zero waste bars are simple to use, as easy as using your favorite bar of soap. 

  If you use traditional shampoo or conditioner there are very few reasons to not make the switch to zero waste versions that allow you to have great hair while also reducing your environmental impact. In addition these zero waste shampoo and conditioner bars come in a wide range of scents and are good for a wide range of hair types.
