QI’m feeling guilty about the number of plastic shampoo bottles in my shower. How can I make my haircare routine more sustainable? Chrissy Gibbs, 41
AYou’re not alone, 73% of Brits want to make their bathrooms more sustainable*, but don’t know where to start. Making it easy to reduce plastic without compromising on your routine, Aussie, Head & Shoulders, Pantene and Herbal Essences now have a reuse-and-refill shampoo system. Buy the aluminium bottle once, and top up with a recyclable pouch when you run out, using 60% less plastic. We like Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Anti-Dandruff Shampoo with Reusable Bottle, £9.99, Boots (refills, £4.80), and Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo with Reusable Bottle, £9.99, also Boots. You only need a little of each, so a bottle lasts for ages.
If you want to ditch plastic altogether, try Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Strengthening Shampoo Bar, £7.99,
The bar’s packaging is 100% recyclable, and the formula is 97% biodegradable, giving you extra eco Brownie points.
