Bathrooms Can Be Made Less Wasteful, Too
Tushy, a modern bidet that can easily be attached to your toilet, is perfect for cutting down on toilet paper and saving your behind from infection and disease. Hygiene products that typically come in single-use plastic containers, such as deodorant, can be replaced by more sustainable options, such as Meow Meow Tweet's deodorant stick, which has a biodegradable container. Skincare brand Abhati Suisse is also a great eco-friendly beauty alternative — its packaging is recyclable, its suppliers are chosen based on its high standard of sustainable farming, and each product purchased sends a girl in India to school.
My waste-free week also coincidentally came during my period (shakes fist), which caused me to brainstorm how I could make my period less wasteful, too. Using menstrual cups, such as Intimina's Lily Cup, and washable cotton pads are great alternatives to traditional pads and tampons that commonly come with a lot of plastic packaging.
