Zero Waste Bathroom Essentials + WIN | Reducing my waste #2

ZERO WASTE LOW WASTE ESSENTIALS | ANNA TWENTY SEVEN

I have started reducing my plastic waste earlier this year, plastic is polluting our oceans, lands and even our own health. I follow a few zero waste movements and so I came across a few nice products! I have tested them, and will now give my honest opinion on them!

Starting with the product that I have used for the longest time in my zero waste journey. The Lunette menstrual cup, I think I don't need to tell you how to use it ;) But it really has changed my period experience for the better. I feel much more relaxed and I highly recommend this brand!

So technically this is not zero waste, I would have to buy dental tabs to be zero waste when it comes to toothpaste. But since I do not have a store nearby where they sell these I have tested these two natural toothpastes. They are both more eco-friendly and have no microbeads in them. Which is really important to me, these microbeads are bad for planet and our health. If you want to check your products, I recommend this list to check if a product has microbeads in it.

This is another not plastic free product, but it is way more sustainable than a "normal" deodorant bottle. This is a salty stone which prevents you from sweating the smelly sweat (hope you understand), which will last for a long time! Yes there is plastic waste, but this product will last me many more months! I think it works perfect for regular days. I am still searching for my perfect fit!

Together with the menstrual cup, I am most excited about these products! A shampoo bar and a body bar! They are both AMAZING. The shampoo bar is now used by all of my family members. No greasy feeling after one summers day! I wash my hair once or twice a week now! While with regular shampoo I had to wash it every other day. The body bar is nice as well! I smell like strawberries afterwards and my skin feels perfectly clean.

Now on to a product which I love, but can not use anymore! Lekker in een Potje is an all natural deodorant! I tested this before the Najel stone. I used it for 3 months when I realised I was allergic for the cornstarch! (fun fact, I am allergic to corn). The deodorant itself worked great though! I used the lavender version and after 2 months I bought two natural versions. I have never used them, so.....

  2. Ik vind het zo fijn dat zero waste steeds meer langskomt. Want ik kan veel dingen nog beter doen en door dit soort berichten denk ik dan 'o ja dat wil ik ook nog aanpassen'. Ik ga hun site eens bekijken! Dankjewel :)
    Ik heb geen Instagram, helaas, maar het gaat vast en zeker goed terecht komen!
