My Sustainable Home with Carol: Zero Waste Tips

My Sustainable Home with Carol: Zero Waste Tips

We noticed that Carole is doing a fantastic job creating a sustainable home, so we asked her to share with us her top zero-waste tips for eco-friendly living. We hope you find her advice as useful as we did! 

What influenced you to start creating a sustainable home?

A move to a new home inspired the desire to attempt to live in a more environmentally friendly way.

What were the first changes that you made when cutting plastic waste from your home?

I wanted to decrease the amount of single use plastic so started using refillable shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Can you give a sustainable tip or plastic-free swap?

Thankfully, there are lots more products to choose from now. I suggest choosing refills rather than looking for products that advertise themselves as plastic free. I’ve been caught out by that in the past!

What is your favourite Bower Collective product and why?

I love the Lime and Aloe Vera Hand Wash. The smell is divine and it’s less drying on the hands. I have a container next to every basin.
