Avoid toiletries in plastic and use solid toiletries. Not only are they environmentally friendly, they are also practical and save on space when packing up your suitcase. Replace plastic bottles with toothpaste tabs, solid shampoo, solid soap bars, and solid deodorant bars. Using these can help to eliminate plastic from your toiletries bag. When arriving at your destination, refuse mini shampoo and conditioner bottles at your hotel.
Alongside solid toiletries, replace your plastic toothbrush with a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. If you haven’t already, change up your makeup routine so it is also plastic-free – consider make-up in compostable packaging and use reusable cotton pads for removing your make-up. Spring break is the perfect time to evaluate this routine as you may choose to wear less make-up while out in the sun, why not refresh your routine while you’re at it to avoid any more waste while at your destination?
