Hi everyone! As I’m transitioning into a more sustainable lifestyle, I’ve found myself questioning the everyday products that I’ve been using. There are actually a TON of sustainable bathroom products to try and even DIY.
I’m still learning, and that’s okay! I’m learning to not be as hard on myself, and am thinking of it more as taking steps in the right direction.
I understand that I’m extremely blessed to be able to take sustainable actions in the first place, and not everyone is fortunate enough to enjoy these products. However, I’ve shared some tips at the end of this post that could be useful! I hope you enjoy these sustainable bathroom products!

REUSABLE COTTON ROUNDS
Since cotton rounds or cotton balls are single-use products, I decided to try out reusable cotton rounds for applying toner to my face and taking off my eye makeup. Now, I use these specific ones from the Package Free Shop every night. After I use them, I wash them in a laundry bag (so they don’t get lost in the washing machine), and since it was 20 for $20, I never find myself running out.
Marley’s Monsters Cotton Facial Rounds – Package Free Shop 20 Pack for $20
Ladies, this is it. This product changes the game. Finding a more sustainable option for pads and tampons has recently become a conversation starter, and now there are period panties! I just bought the Hiphugger and Sport classic undies. I’m excited to change things up by buying a product that I can reuse over and over again.
Millions of plastic toothbrushes end up in the landfill and our oceans each year, and I’ve discovered that investing in a bamboo toothbrush immensely helps the environment. Made entirely from plants, this bamboo toothbrush has soft bristles and looks really cute in my bathroom’s medicine cabinet.
SOLID BODY SOAP
Liquid body soap usually comes in plastic packaging, and I believe there are some brands like Pacifica that have introduced recycling programs to customers. However, I’ve found myself reaching for products that are zero-waste like my new body soap from Serenade the Company. This body soap came in brown paper with twine wrapped around it inside the mailing package. Super cute!
THE MAKEUP ERASER
I haven’t been wearing makeup as much since COVID began, but when I do, I use the Makeup Eraser to take it off. I absolutely love these magical towels! They’re gentle on my face, and so easy to use. All you need is water, and I can reuse it a few times before I have to throw it in the hamper. The Makeup Eraser is a great alternative to makeup wipes or micellar water, and will last me years.
I also think this would be a perfect gift for a friend!
I used to floss with plastic dental floss picks, but I’ve switched it up with silk floss. This one is entirely made from mulberry silk and coated in a vegan candelilla wax. The Package Free Shop has another option in a glass container, but I figured I’d be able to use a container I already have to put my floss in.
ZERO-WASTE FACE MASKS
This Activated Charcoal Clay Facial Mask has been awesome for targeting my acne and purifying my skin overall. The best part about this mask is the fact that it comes in powder form, and I’m able to mix the mask myself! I just add water, and I can formulate the mask to my desired consistency. Super fun!

SUSTAINABLE TIPS FOR THE BATHROOM
REPURPOSE OLD CONTAINERS
I’m using a sample container of a fresh moisturizer that I used up to hold my rings in when I travel. I’ve been going back and forth between my parent’s house and my apartment, so this has been a great way to repurpose a perfectly good container instead of throwing it away. Get creative with it!
A lot of DIY face masks on Pinterest include common kitchen ingredients. Instead of just throwing away used coffee grounds, I’ll be using Trash For Tossers’ recipe that includes old coffee grounds, sugar, and coconut oil.
USE OLD COTTON T-SHIRTS AS RAGS
This is an awesome method if you have an old T-shirt lying around. You can easily wipe down your bathroom sink using a simple piece of fabric!
WHAT I WANT TO TRY IN THE FUTURE
I’m using up products that I already have and purchased in the past, but am looking towards creating a more environmentally friendly bathroom. So, below I have included some products that I’ll possibly buy in the future.
