Have you ever wondered what the showers of the future would look like? How can you continue to enjoy nice, long showers without making a big impact on the environment? This week we have partnered with Orbital Systems!
With new and innovative solutions, the Orbital Shower measures, cleans and reuses water while you shower! This results in you being able to save up to 90% of water! The shower's recirculating structure can also save up to 80% energy, which minimizes the impact on both the environment and your wallet.
With the environment in focus, sustainable and environmentally friendly cleaning solutions are important, this is where Skosh comes in. What we offer is a product made of recyclable plastic with a darker appearance and an extra layer for better durability. The tablets are biodegradable and colored with natural dyes that do not transfer to your surfaces. Because we know and understand that sustainability is a process, here are five more products to upgrade your bathroom step by step!
1. Bamboo toothbrush
Now that we are becoming more and more aware of our actions and their impact on the environment, a common step is to turn to sustainable, plastic-free solutions. One of these solutions is bamboo toothbrushes, these toothbrushes are biodegradable and made from sustainably grown bamboo. By using this type of toothbrush, you can minimize your plastic consumption without any major sacrifices! They can be bought in almost all pharmacies and many online stores
2. Shampoo & conditioner cookies
Have you ever thought about how many bottles of shampoo and conditioner you have used in your lifetime? An easy way to reduce this plastic waste is to invest in some less traditional options such as shampoo and conditioner bars. These cookies are practical, and save on both packaging and the environment! Fias Mode has made a comparison of the best shampoo bars on the market right now, you can read about it here.
3. Solid soap
As a continuation of the tip above, another way to reduce the plastic waste you normally produce in your bathroom is to replace liquid soap with solid. This option is not only good for the environment but can also be good for your wallet, depending on the soap you choose! In addition to this, solid soaps require less energy to produce, which provides another advantage over the liquid versions. You can find an example of this type of soap here
If you're sitting there thinking that maybe these tips aren't really for you, maybe this might grab your attention. Metal razors. This, like the toothbrush change, wouldn't require you to sacrifice any step in your normal routine, making it the perfect change! There are a lot of different brands and types to choose from, an example is from the brand Váli and can be found here
5. Natural cleaning products
To summarize the list, eco-friendly cleaning products are must. An example of this is of course Skosh, but there are also many other options to try. These options require a little more preparation on your part, but are simple, inexpensive, and most importantly, environmentally friendly. This is something we will write more about in a future post, so keep your eyes open for it ;)
