Toss it Tuesday:
Single-Use Plastic in the Bathroom
In about 400 years the first plastic ever created will decompose.
The problem with plastic.
Yep, you read that right. 400 years. The plastic you’re using and tossing today will need around 1,000 years in a landfill to decompose, effecting generations to come in ways we can’t even fully understand today.
Space in landfills, leaching of chemicals from plastics into groundwater and the lack of sustainability in the household cleaning space will continue to be an issue for thousands of years.
One of the fastest ways to make a tangible contribution to the conservation of our planet is to start reducing the number of items we use once and toss.
Moving away from single-use plastic Hand Soaps in the bathroom is an easy step towards conservation and green living.
This simple switch can save over 78% of the plastic cleaning waste your family normally uses annually. Using concentrates and refillable dispensers has a real impact.
Our Everything Soap was created to minimize waste and create a multi-functional approach to cleaning. It can be used in any foaming pump making conservation easy and eliminating the need for single-use plastic. Bonus: It smells amazing and only costs around $1.70 to make an 8oz Hand Soap for the bathroom.
