The shampoo bar may well be the eco-friendliest solution to what is estimated to be 552 million plastic shampoo bottles we throw out annually. One naked bar provides about 80 washes – the equivalent of three medium-size bottles.
With plastic packaging so predominant in the cosmetics and beauty industry, naked alternatives to plastic packaging like a shampoo bar can go a long way to reducing litter on beaches (80% of which is plastic) as well as eliminating additions to the 300,000 tons of plastic debris in our oceans.
Think about it. No plastic bottle in your bathroom or shower. No potentially leaking plastic bottle in your suitcase. No plastic bottle in your trash or recycling. Insofar as does it work, we’ve heard it does wonders for your hair. How it that possible? Easy. These bars are basically shampoo without the water and there is a big assortment of fragrances, types, shapes and colors from which to choose.
Google shampoo bar to find the right one for you. We found a lot of choices from J.R. Liggett’s Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo (they even a tea tree and hemp oil formula) to Shea with Coconut & Hibiscus and artisan-made bars at Etsy with names like Strawberries & Cream, Rose Spice and Cabana Boy.
