It’s safe to say that we’re all doing our best to be more environmentally conscious and friendly. Everyone has a part to play, from big time companies to each individual. One thing you can do to help, is look at your plastic consumption. What do we all use that’s basically confined in plastic? Our shampoo and conditioner. Yep, so we’re taking a look at how to battle that. Here’s just a few benefits of switching to shampoo bars, instead of the regular old bottles.
Ideal For Travelling
Off on your holidays? A shampoo bar is ideal for packing! You don’t have to worry about any pesky spillages, or the liquid limit either. They’re nice and light weight, so they’re ideal for you carry on luggage. No more planning your packing around hair care!
Because bars of shampoo (and conditioner, body wash, and anything else you can think of) are more concentrated, they’ll last a whole lot longer. Think of it this way, the more concentrated a product is, the less you have to use.

Pick up your favorite #zerowaste shampoo bar in a cork pot! Made from the bark of the cork oak sourced from south Portugal, these pots are 100% natural and #biodegradable. Cork by nature wicks away moisture and drains easily which means a shampoo bar that is more enjoyable to use and lasts longer too. A sustainable and regenerative material, cork is harvested by stripping the bark off the trees in a rotating system. This process does not harm the trees and it grows back over the course of nine years when it is ready to be harvested again, this encourages natural wildlife to flourish. This pot, as a part of an upcoming, exclusive swag range is the perfect companion to join you on your travels – it's what your #shampoobar has been dreaming about for years!
There’s No Nasties
Some regular shampoo and conditioners are packed with additives that can strip your hair of it’s natural goodness. Nobody wants that now, do we? Gentle, low-lather shampoo bars are known for not containing any nasty additives. Perfect!
Saving The Environment, Duh
By far the number one benefit, switching to shampoo bars is one step closer to doing your bit for our planet. Shampoo bars may not be for everyone, but if you do make the switch, you’ll be reducing your plastic waste bit by bit, which is what we should all be really trying to do.
The only downfall is that shampoo bars may take a little getting used to. But once you get the hang of them, you’ll be converted! You can pick up solid, bar version of many products. From shampoo and conditioner to soap and body wash.
