Plastic Free & Zero Waste Tips For Earth Day

Image created for Eco Fluffy Mama by Sarah Docker

It’s Earth Day, woohoo! I find that this is a day when I reflect upon environmental issues and what I can do to help. If there’s one thing that has really been on my mind, it’s plastic pollution in our seas, oceans and on beaches. I know that I’ve already spoken about it before, but this is a serious issue. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish¹. Scary right? And that’s not all; because of microplastics in our waterways, plastic is entering the food chain². Heck, even whales and birds are ingesting plastic carrier bags. We desperately NEED to make changes. View Post

As some of you know, I’ve been on the look out for eco and organic cotton menstrual product brands to review, and recently came across TOTM. I know that reusable menstrual products aren’t for everyone. So I feel it’s important to try and review eco/organic disposables that are as kind to our bodies and the planet as possible. Especially since roundup weedkiller was found in tampons and pads. Scary, right?

TOTM make organic cotton tampons and pads and offer a personalized subscription service or one-off purchasing. They very kindly sent both tampons and pads, but I am only reviewing the pads (despite trying, I still cannot use tampons since having my son).

Before getting into a greener way of living, and then zero waste, my bathroom used to be cram packed full of product after product. Multiple bottles of shampoo for different needs and shower gels/bubble baths lined up on the edge of the bathtub, and other supposed ‘essentials’ stacked up on shelves. Of course, I always moaned about how expensive it was for all those bits, and how the bathroom always felt cluttered. But I didn’t know any different. And to me, this was normal.

Looking back now I am absolutely horrified about my excessive consumption of products and the waste generated from just one area of my life. In a bid to help you declutter and ease into zero waste, I’ve put together a few tips for things that I feel are zero waste bathroom essentials.
