    26 Things To Replace In Your Bathroom To Make It More Sustainable

    Little swaps that can make a big difference.

    1. A 16-pack of reusable makeup remover pads that are made from bamboo, which is gentler on the planet than cotton, and can be reused up to 1,000 times. That's a lot of makeup removed and disposable cotton rounds saved!

    2. A Tushy bidet attachment for a true revo-loo-tionary toilet upgrade that'll keep your tushy in tip-top shape without the need for toilet paper, which accounts for roughly 15% of deforestation.

    3. A fabric shower curtain liner that's free of the usual PVC (aka an environmentally damaging plastic) and is water-repellent and machine-washable so you can keep your liner looking fresher for longer.

    4. Some three-ply bamboo toilet paper because bamboo is the world's fastest-growing plant and can help cut down on the 7.7 million trees being turned into TP annually.

    5. A pack of 4-gallon trash bags that are certified-compostable to house all that unavoidable trash in a liner that won't shed teeny-tiny (yet harmful) microplastics once it's at the landfill.

    6. A refillable Fohm dispenser if you love the *booty-ful* clean wet wipes provide, but hate the sewage-clogging, microplastic-shedding side effects. Keep this gadget close to your toilet to transform any piece of toilet paper into a cleansing wet wipe that can actually help you use less TP overall.

    7. This zero-waste Ethique shampoo bar that's the equivalent of three bottles of liquid shampoo. That's three plastic bottles saved without sacrificing any of the soapy, sudsy lather you're used to!

    8. A beginner-friendly menstrual cup for a one-and-done purchase you'll keep for years that won't fill up your trash or empty your wallet like other period products. Just imagine — no more emergency runs to pick up tampons because your period came early.

    9. A reusable cotton swab so you can clean your ears and clean up the planet at the same time by replacing up to 1,000 single-use swabs.

    10. Or these biodegradable bamboo cotton swabs because a lot of single-use swabs are made with plastic and the Clean Ocean Foundation says they often absorb bad POPs (persistent organic pollutants) in the ocean, making them even more toxic to marine life!

    11. A nonslip slatted bath mat to give your bathroom an instant spa-like feel with an easy-to-clean alternative to fabric mats that won't need to be laundered every other second and is made from renewable bamboo, which naturally repels water.

    12. A makeup erasing cloth if just-add-water makeup removal sounds like an impossible fairytale you want to be living in. This reusable cloth is gentle on sensitive skin, but tough on even waterproof makeup. Once it gets dirty, just toss it in the wash.

    13. Some cute, easy-to-clean reusable cloth pads with adjustable snaps that'll make Aunt Flow's arrival a friendlier experience for both the planet and your wallet.

    14. This collagen-infused activated charcoal body scrub for the same skin-polishing exfoliation without the usual plastic microbeads that wash down the drain, ending up in our water streams and causing potential harm to both marine and human friends.

    15. A no-frills bamboo toothbrush with soft charcoal brushes so you can actually follow your dentist's orders and swap your toothbrush every three months without piling up more plastic in the landfill. Over time, this all-natural brush will biodegrade and return to Mama Earth.

    16. This vegan charcoal dental floss with a refillable glass vial because traditional floss is great for your teeth but bad for the planet (it's usually made from petroleum-based nylon that won't biodegrade) and this bamboo fiber will break down in just 60 to 90 days.

    17. Or a sleek WaterPik so you can get all the plaque-busting benefits of flossing with absolutely zero waste involved.

    18. A three-blade, pivoting-head reusable razor with a lifetime warranty because a Statista report found that 158.10 million Americans used disposable razors in 2020, and one can only assume the majority of those are headed to landfills.

    19. A scented shave soap bar to get the moisturizing lather you love from your current shaving cream without the plastic packaging.

    20. A dye-free Egyptian shower loofah if you're looking at your mildewy-smelling synthetic one thinking "There's gotta be a better option." You're right! And it looks like this generously-sized, biodegradable alternative.

    21. This revolutionary Dame tampon starter set with a reusable plastic applicator that lasts for life and works with every tampon size so tampon devotees can still enjoy single-use convenience without all the unnecessary plastic applicator waste (which can take over 20 years to break down).

    22. Some all-natural toothpaste tablets for anyone on the hunt for a plastic-free alternative to traditional tubes that leaves your mouth feeling just as fresh and clean as your conscience does when you reduce waste!

    23. Or this super smart naturally sourced toothpaste so you get the squirt tube experience you're used to in a better-for-the-planet metal form that's 100% recyclable.

    24. A box of convenient, tablet-based cleaners and forever bottles from Blueland — a Shark Tank alum — because sparkling clean counters, tiles, and mirrors shouldn't automatically come with the environmental costs of single-use plastics.

    25. A cruelty-free liquid hand soap refill to fill up a reusable dispenser instead of buying an entirely new plastic one every time you run out of soap.

    26. Then snag a refillable soap dispenser (like this statement-making rough stone one) to tie together your refreshed, eco-friendly bathroom!
