Zero waste bathroom - 12 things that will change the future of the planet

We live in an age where man-made materials used for everyday life litter our planet. Garbage is a global problem. There is so much waste that we start to worry about the fate of our earth. It is high time to change our habits and clean the planet for our descendants. See what you can introduce into your daily life.

We use a lot of disposable items in the bathroom. One Briton produces up to 394 kg of garbage per year. This is the same as one large room stuffed to the brim with rubbish. This has catastrophic consequences in nature. It is worth considering environmentally friendly alternatives. Not only for the planet, but also for our loved ones. Control the waste you throw away.
