4 tips for a sustainable bathroom

4 tips for a sustainable bathroom


How green is your bathroom? And no, we're not talking about a coat of paint! With a green bathroom, we mean an eco-friendly bathroom, of course. Even though the bathroom might be a small space, you can make a big impact by greening it up. And it's a lot less difficult than you might think. With a few small adjustments, you're already there! Marcel has 4 tips for you.

#1 SHOWER SHORTER

We understand that you might lose track of time occasionally when you're enjoying a nice shower. But it's not good for the planet! Shorten your shower time by setting a timer (and sticking to it ;) 5 minutes is long enough. Difficult for you? Turn it into a challenge and challenge yourself to shower a little shorter each time. It's even better for your wallet too!

#2 GREEN CLEANING

Don't clean your bathroom with aggressive, harmful substances anymore, but with biodegradable cleaning products. Every week, millions of liters of cleaning agents are flushed down the drain. And every week, millions of plastic bottles end up in the environment. That needs to change. Marcel knows a good place for sustainable cleaning products ;)

#3 ZERO WASTE PRODUCTS

Only choose zero-waste products like plastic-free soap bars, reusable cotton pads, biodegradable dental floss - you name it! Did you know that Marcel also sells a few plastic-free products? You can now find a plastic-free deodorant, shampoo bar, body bar, and soon a conditioner bar in our range.

#4 GREEN TOOTHBRUSHING

Yep: you can also brush your teeth greener! This can even be done in two ways. You probably use multiple toothbrushes per year. By replacing these with bamboo toothbrushes, you immediately contribute to greening your bathroom. Bamboo is a very sustainable material. It's biodegradable and hygienic. The second way is the toothpaste you use.

"Every year, 1.5 billion toothpaste tubes end up in our landfills and oceans."

People who brush their teeth twice a day use an average of one tube of toothpaste per month. And that tube is made of plastic. Every year, 1.5 billion toothpaste tubes end up in our landfills and oceans. This can and must change. How? With toothpaste tabs from Smyle. These are 100% plastic-free and come in a glass bottle. And don't worry: these tabs work just as well as toothpaste from a tube.
