A Guide To Ditching Plastic Bottles 5

Want to ditch the plastic bottles from your life? Here’s how!

An easy and quick guide to ditching plastic bottles from you home and replacing them with eco-friendly, plastic free alternatives.

Here is how you can easily get rid of plastic bottles in your home by replacing them with sustainable, natural, plastic free alternatives.

Natural Bathroom

Toothpaste tubes – Ditch plastic tubes of toothpaste and get yourself toothy tabs which are just as effective but are also completely natural and plastic free!

Mouthwash bottles – Natural mouthwash is an essential part of your natural dental care routine but that doesn’t mean it has to come in plastic bottles. Check out our range of natural mouthwash, natural mouthwash tablets and natural oil pulling mouthwash which are great, plastic free, zero waste and natural alternatives.

Deodorant bottles – First of all, you should switch to natural deodorant instead of antiperspirant, and you should make sure it comes either in a solid form, or in recycled and recyclable containers. 

Soap bottles No need for plastic bottles of soap, just get your mitts on some wonderful plastic free, natural soap bars, lather up, and don’t worry about anything else! We stock an eco friendly range of natural soap bars, including natural facial cleansing soap bars, natural hand soap bars, vegan body soap bars, organic soap bars, natural shaving soap and even eco soap on a rope.

Soap dish – Say goodbye to plastic, who needs a plastic soap dish when you can switch it for a natural, plastic-free, eco soap dish that is handmade from sustainable materials such as bamboo, coconut, ceramic or olive wood. Eco soap dishes are perfect for storing natural soap and can be recycled or reused.

Eco Shower

Shower gel bottles Get rid of plastic shower gel bottles and switch them out for gorgeous natural body wash alternatives that come in glass instead. Or, you could ditch packaging completely and opt for a good, old fashioned bar of soap! You can also switch to a plastic free, natural soap pouch so you can store your natural soap bar and use to create a rich lather for an all over body wash.

Exfoliator tubs You can switch out plastic tubes or bottles of exfoliator and body scrub for natural body scrub alternatives that are free from chemicals and come either in a bar, or a glass container with a metal lid. No plastic waste here!

Natural Skincare

Makeup remover – Good quality makeup remover doesn’t have to come in plastic, nor does it have to  contain harsh chemicals or unnatural ingredients. We stock natural makeup removers in a varied assortment of creams, melts, oils, and butters that can remove even the most stubborn products.

Toner – The same applies to toners. Gentle, natural toners and eco friendly facial cleansers in glass bottles are the perfect alternative to chemical-filled commercial brands that come in plastic. Get yours here!

Eco Kitchen

Dish soap bottles No need for plastic bottles here either – get your hands on some solid, plastic free, natural dish soap bars instead. Essential for eco, plastic-free washing up vegan, natural dish soap is just as effective at getting your china, pots and pans clean but without the nasties. All our natural dish soaps are 100% plastic-free, palm oil free and chemical free. The eco, natural way to clean your dishes!

All purpose cleaner – These biodegradable sachets are a great replacement for a number of household cleaning products. Just pop the sachet into a reusable spray bottle, add water and you are good to go! The whole sachet is soluble! 

Floor cleaner If you want a sustainable, zero waste alternative to your usual floor cleaner- we’ve got you covered. This natural floor cleaner powder, when sprinkled into your bucket of water will make your tiles, woodwork, or slates smell divine!

Hand soap – Liquid hand soap is traditionally 100% plastic, but if you want to be eco, switch to a plastic free or reusable, natural liquid soap that comes in a sustainable glass or aluminium bottle.

Eco Cleaning

Spray bottles – Instead of using soaps and sprays in plastic bottles, you can use these amber glass spray bottles instead. Sustainable and infinitely recyclable, the glass is also non-leaching and completely eco friendly.

Eco-Friendly Laundry

Detergent and fabric softener – Instead of resorting to plastic bottles full of harsh, artificial chemicals, imagine you could opt for simple natural washing powders and egg shaped wonders instead? Natural Laundry eggs can be popped inside the washer, and these natural washing powders that come in paper bags can be used like a regular detergent. The bonus is that both are completely plastic free!

  1. I want to send this post to all my friends!! Great encouragement, I’m going zero plastic and making the switch this year!

  2. Having had some breakages of my glass bottles , is there another option to plastic, where the energy debt can be kept low?

    1. Hi Ruth, great question!

      At this point in time there are not many other eco friendly alternatives to glass bottles. the most interesting thing i have seen are paper bottles.

      Hopefully there will be something more accessible and less breakable soon

  3. What’s your take on the idea that plastic you already have is better than buying new products and throwing away the plastic. Both of which cause wastage.

    Things like soap dishes that are plastic, that you may already have surely are better in your bathroom than in the rubbish, no?

    Apart from this question, loving the ideas!

    1. Hi Freddie,

      Great question! We understand it is almost impossible to completely avoid plastic in this day and age.

      If you have plastic at home i would say make the most of what you have. If you have a plastic soap dish then it will last years. when it is at the end of its life, recycle it!

      If we all made extra steps to prolong the use of our plastic items and purchase less plastic then it would make a massive difference.
