6 Alternatives for Reducing Waste in the Bathroom

I recently made these 6 changes. It was easy and I am saving money by making some of my own products. I am also reducing my waste. 

Instead of plastic toothbrushes…

Try bamboo toothbrushes! Every part of this toothbrush is plant-based. The handle can be composted once you are finished.

Instead of toothpaste that comes in a plastic tube…
