My Current Zero Waste Shower Products: 



One of the first places I started minimizing my plastic consumption was in the bathroom. Not only is it a fun and exciting way to try out new products, it’s a great way to cut back on costs and clutter. If you are looking to reduce the plastic in your life, take a look in your shower.
