Plastic Free July Day 5

Yesterday I got some shampoo bars in the mail from Aquarian Bath.  I've been using shampoo bars since my first Plastic Free July in 2013, and I couldn't be happier.  They have replaced both shampoo and conditioner, and the larger amounts of waste created with their plastic bottles.

We don't have any shampoo bars sold locally where I live, and I also like the natural ingredients Aquarian Bath uses in their bars, as well as their plastic-free shipping materials.

If you haven't tried a shampoo bar yet, I would highly recommend it!!

(I was not paid or compensated in any way for this post, all opinions are 100% my own! :)

If you aren't familiar with Plastic Free July, take a look at this post.  Basically, it's a month-long challenge to reduce the amount of disposable plastic you use.  It's a great starting point if you just want to give cutting out disposable plastic a try.

My first Plastic Free July was in 2013(!), and this month I'd like to highlight some of the things I do to reduce my plastic use, and some struggles.  Many things are part of my routine at this point (buying in bulk, refusing plastic silverware, etc.), but I am not perfect, and I always find this challenge to be a good time to refocus and look at what trash I am actually producing.
