Zero Waste Bathroom Is An Achievable Goal:
We’re all creatures of habit, so breaking the pattern in any area of your life might be challenging, especially when reducing or eliminating waste created by the beauty products you use. One of the main things to remember is that change doesn’t happen overnight and that it’s ok to take things slow.
Here are some useful tips on how you can start your zero waste bathroom journey:
- Use products in reusable bottles or naked packaging.
- Buy reusable makeup pads, razors and sanitary pads.
- Purchase makeup in refillable containers.
- Use a minimalistic approach to beauty by asking yourself whether you truly need all those products.
- Remember that buying eco products might seem expensive, but it will help you save in the long run as you only need to purchase them once.
- And lastly, be kind to yourself. Know that you don’t have to be perfect and can take one step at the time.
Why reusing is better than recycling
As new generations are born, and we discover new ways of living in harmony with the environment, questions about recycling arise more frequently. For many years recycling has been praised and portrayed as an ultimate solution to the waste problem we face. There is no doubt it is beneficial that we have found ways to create new things through recycling various materials, but we still face negative consequences that are harmful to us and the environment.
When you choose to reuse, you help to prevent pollution that is caused by recycling or manufacturing new products, as well as reduce energy consumption that is inseparable with the production process. By reusing you also save money, which leads to an even better outcome – you can choose quality over quantity.
How your beauty routine contributes to plastic waste
When you look around your bathroom, many of your loved beauty products come in a plastic container. Some of them are made of glass, but generally, companies do not offer convenient product refills, so you end up throwing it in the bin and getting a brand-new bottle. We all know how exciting it may feel receiving beauty products wrapped in a crispy tissue paper and a perfectly designed box, but the reality of it is far from pretty.
It will all end up rebranded as recycled waste, and only some lucky items will reach the recycling process. As Forbes quotes “according to Zero Waste Week, more than 120 billion units of packaging are produced globally every year by the cosmetics industry, contributing to the loss of 18 million acres of forest annually.” If we all take a step towards reusing, the numbers will be positively changed.
Our team at Luxury Bath Co. has taken into consideration the environment and your lavish taste when creating our stylish glass bottles, that you can reuse and even repurpose. All our beauty products are made out of natural ingredients to nourish your hair and skin while protecting the environment and reducing plastic waste.

The short answer is – yes. You can start by looking for products that use less packaging and buy reusable items over disposable.
