Shampoo and conditioner bars have become very popular over the last decade. They began as a niche product but have quickly grown to become common products in households.
They are an amazing alternative to liquid shampoo and conditioner for people who want to cut down on their plastic usage. Bars either come with no packaging or recyclable packaging, which is much more environmentally-friendly than the more common alternative.
Why Do We Need To Cut Down On Shampoo Bottles?
Shampoo bottles can be damaging to the environment because they contain a lot of chemicals that don’t break down easily. These chemicals end up polluting our water supply and harming marine life. The majority of plastic bottles cannot be recycled and therefore end up in landfill, contributing to the global warming crisis.
While this is worrying, it doesn't decipher the real, terrifying issue that we need to eradicate. So, here is a chilling fact for you:
A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute, and that number is projected to jump another 20% within a matter of years.
This approximately equates to 20,000 bottles being bought every second. While they are not all shampoo and conditioner bottles, these still contribute a large percentage of it.
Here's another fact for you:
Nine million tonnes of plastic is thrown into the ocean every year - equating to one rubbish truck being emptied into the ocean every minute.
Again, it's not all shampoo and conditioner bottles. But if we could cut this down by using bar equivalents instead, why wouldn't we?
