Swap shower gels for natural soap bars

Avoid soap containing unsustainable palm oil or those wrapped in plastic. Only Natural have beautiful, naturally fragranced unwrapped soaps from ‘Faith in Nature’ and also from an Irish owned company ‘Palm Free Irish Soap’. By opting for packageless or minimally packaged products the need for recycling is reduced. Obviously recyclable packaging is better than un-recyclables but the recycling process still puts a significant strain on the environment. Some cosmetic companies offer a refill service where you can top up your container at a discounted rate.

Try Shampoo Bars

Shampoo bars are also a greener option worth trying. Palm Free Irish Soaps have a bar called ‘Thyme Travel’. I love the fresh, natural scent of this bar. To use simply rub on dampened hair and work up a lather then wash out. The makers of this bar recommend rinsing with apple cider vinegar as a great natural conditioner and then treating the hair to a drop of argan oil. Friends of mine have tried this and they love it, unfortunately my hair is too fine but my husband tried the product and is now fully a converted shampoo bar devotee. read more →

As a result our electricity making panels generate power when the sun is shining, this is when I schedule our washing machine to do it’s thing.
