Cut down on plastic bottles by using bar soap instead of body wash. If the soap comes in a small box, be sure to recycle or reuse it. For an even more eco-friendly option, purchase natural, handmade soap from a local vendor and ask for a minimal amount of packaging (it can often be tied with twine or wrapped in a thin sheet of tissue paper). If you can’t find any local soapmakers, try searching Etsy.com for a seller near you.
