Showering Plastic Free

07 July 2017

One obvious challenge with going plastic free is how to avoid all the bottled products in the shower.


Everything comes in plastic – shampoo, conditioner, body wash and more...


I’m not keen on the idea of giving up washing my hair so I needed an alternative that doesn’t involve a heap of plastic.


Lucky for me I found a supplier of wonderful concentrated products that come in cardboard, not plastic – Ethique. I absolutely adore this brand and admire how they are addressing the packaging problem head on! And even better, they're based locally here in Christchurch. 



This July I have been using these products and love them!

Sweet & Spicy shampoo 
The Guardian conditioner 
In Your Face cleanser 
Gingersnap face scrub 


I found soap dishes at my local op shop for $1 each which are working really well. 


If you’re unsure about using a bar to shampoo your hair, try one of their sampler packs. You can try five products and decide if they work for you. Using a bar to shampoo your hair may seem a little strange, but as the video below demonstrates, it's a piece of cake!


So what are you waiting for? Head over to Ethique's website and check out their fantastic range of bar products!


P.S. I am in no way affiliated with Ethique, I just think they're doing an awesome job!
