Bamboo seems to be the favourite alternative to the plastic toothbrushes.
There are plenty of options, but ensure that ALL of the toothbrush is biodegradable. A lot of them claim to be 100%, but the bristles are still plastic and that is what can hurt marine life. Also, as demonstrated in the pic below, the toothbrushes can stand themselves up. Finally, someone with common sense works in the industry.
Most come in a massive, awkwardly shaped bottles that you only use for a until it’s empty.
Choose a bar of soap. Most supermarkets will sell bars of soap, you may need to look a little longer to find it as the ratio to plastic to non-plastic items down this particular isle is insane. Try to avoid the ones with plastic wrapping; that defeats the object.
Most blogs will suggest links to other websites and blogs to advertise recipes. I’m not about that life, so I suggest buying one. Lush is a great shop. Most plastic free alternatives can be found in there. Hand creams, moisturisers, bath bombs. I can only go in there when I have a cold otherwise the overpowering smell gives me a headache.. Happy soap hunting!
Invest in one decent insulated bottle. The double walled ones are best. Stainless steel is great.
Personally, I bought a Thermos Hydration Water Bottle with Straw, Magenta, 530 ml. This one doesn’t keep it cold, but it never leaks. I have one at home, one in my dance bag, and one in the office. Highly recommended. (pic below is of the stainless steel ones)
