As you may already know, plastic pollution is one of the most concerning environmental issues known globally. We are constantly thinking of ways we can reduce our use of plastic and in the bathroom is one place that doesn’t first come to mind, but where we can definitely start. Keep reading below for 4 reasons why to ditch your plastic shampoo bottle for a bar.
REDUCE PLASTIC POLLUTION
Did you know that every year in the US 552 million plastic bottles of shampoo end up in a landfill instead of being recycled? That’s more than 1.5 MILLION every single day.
It’s always annoying when your bags get pulled aside by TSA agents so they can check if you’re over the 3.4 liquid ounces limit! It’s even worse when you open your bag and find that your shampoo bottle leaked all over your clothes. With shampoo bars there are no worries about the TSA limit and no spills; you can just pop it in your carry on.
While regular shampoo is made up of 70% water, shampoo bars are concentrated and use almost no water to make. On average, a shampoo bar is the equivalent of two to three bottles of liquid shampoo, so you save money, save water, save the environment, and save an extra trip to the store.
Because liquid shampoos contain a high percentage of water, they also require a high concentration of preservatives that can be detrimental to your hair, your health, and the water when rinsing your hair. Liquid shampoos are also often formulated with a variety of chemicals that can wreak havoc on your scalp and can strip your hair of its natural moisture.
