Shampoo & Conditioner
Liquid shampoo has its problems – here's how washing your hair can clean up your footprintView all products
- 520 million shampoo bottles are thrown out every year in the UK
- Liquid shampoo can be anywhere between 70-90% water, making it heavier, creating unnecessary packaging, and using up more space while in transit
- Some soaps and detergents use key ingredients that are derived from petrochemicals
Thick plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles filling up your bathroom? It doesn't need to be that way! There are plenty of eco-friendly and low waste alternatives that will make you wonder you ever bought plastic bottles and tubs. Save space, waste and stock up for longer with these lower impact, eco-friendly and concentrated shampoo and conditioners.
Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
Shampoo and conditioner bars are more concentrated, require much less packaging, and require fewer chemicals to keep them in a liquid state. While they're not refillable, the minimal amount of packaging (which is often cardboard) helps reduce the impact.
Refillable Shampoo & Conditioner
Refillable shampoo may still come in a plastic container but by refilling you can extend the life and reduce the overall impact of that plastic compared to single-use cardboard and other materials. Look for bottles or containers made from materials like aluminium which can be recycled effectively if you need to dispose of it.
