We create 1,128 pounds of bathroom waste throughout our lives, shocked!? It takes up to 500 years for a plastic cotton swab, 100 years for a wet wipe, and 400 for a toothbrush to decompose. And to produce one roll of conventional toilet paper requires 37 gallons of water and a gallon of chemicals. The bathroom is a great place to jump-start your zero waste journey. We discovered sustainable bathroom products that are plastic-free and brands that are eco-friendly.
