If you’re on a journey to making your home more eco-friendly, my advice is: start with the bathroom.
Green bathroom products are becoming a popular trend—and there is an abundance of zero-waste products both in-stores and on the Internet to choose from. Plus, bathrooms are the smallest space within a home, so it’s the easiest and quickest room to makeover. I like to call it a “green-flip”.
Prior to becoming a parent, my bathroom products consisted of unhealthy cleaning chemicals and tons of hygiene products made with harsh ingredients. Plastic toothbrushes would get thrown out every few months and cotton swabs consisted of the plastic variety. Nobody’s perfect.
What matters is that one day it hits you, and you realize the importance of being kind not only to the environment, but to yourself as well. And that’s what being “eco-friendly” is all about—making a collective effort to achieve a better quality of life.
