Zero Waste Shampoo Review: Ethique Heali Kiwi

We’ve been working to make our home a less wasteful place. One of the places I looked to decrease waste first was the bathroom. It seemed like an easy place to start.

So I tried a lot of things, mainly shampoo bars, natural deodorants, and toothpaste. Some of them were great, other were down right terrible. I started keeping a list, and then figured if I was already doing most of the work, why not turn it into a blog series? Maybe that way you won’t have to try as many things as I did to find something that works for you.

This list is for the zero-wasters, the plastic-free, and the nature mamas. I tried to note vegan options as well.
