One of the easiest places to start going plastic free (or zero waste) is your bathroom. It’s really not that hard to find good plastic free alternatives for most bathroom basics and #plasticfreejuly is the perfect time to start!
I really love my solid shampoos and (shower) soaps (I also use them for shaving). I’ve switched to a bamboo toothbrush and cotton buds, natural deodorant and a safety razor. I also love to mix my own products using multi-purpose natural products like coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera and jojoba oil.
If you live in the Netherlands you’re in luck because this week HAPPY SOAPS is letting me GIVE AWAY this fantastic, colourful, selection of 9 of their products.
HappySoaps is a Dutch brand that is passionate about creating plastic free cosmetics. Not only are their products 100% plastic free, they’re also cruelty free, vegan, palm oil free and handmade from natural ingredients. Oh, and they smell absolutely DELICIOUS!

Happy Earth Day! Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. That’s why I’m sharing another update about my journey towards low waste living, in illustrated form, of course. These are changes that I’ve personally made over the last few years to reduce my waste, especially plastic. It’s still not perfect by far but we all have to start somewhere. If everyone tries a little, together we can accomplish a lot!
It also doesn’t have to be expensive. I actually buy much less now. I’m using up all old products and replacing only what I need. When I do decide to buy something I try to find high quality products that are eco-friendly and/or fair-trade, that I can really enjoy for a long time. I also love to shop vintage.
What are you doing to reduce your waste? New ideas are always welcome! Stay safe, stay positive and go green! 💚

Simple Ways To Reduce Waste In Your Bathroom.
Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. What better day to think about small changes we all can make to help save the planet?
This illustration is part 4 in my zero/low waste infographic series about the changes that I’ve personally made to help reduce my waste, especially plastic. This one is all about zero- or low waste bathroom swaps. I’m still not zero waste by far, but I’m constantly trying to improve. My absolute favorite low waste bathroom products are multi-purpose products, like coconut oil, jojoba oil & aloe vera gel. I also like to mix more and more products myself. More tips and ideas are always welcome.💚
