Ditch the Bottles—Why You Should Switch To Bar Soaps

When thinking of soap, what do you think of?

Your answer is probably some liquid name brand in a bottle. Now ask yourself again, just to put it into perspective.... How many bottles do you throw out in a year? How about five years? The last 10 years?  

We as a collective have been using liquid soap for plenty over 100 years. Imagine the amount of plastic waste that has been produced since then. Taking from 20 to 500 years to decompose, there simply is no way that our environment is able to keep up with our level of plastic disposal at this magnitude. 

To combat this issue, many have switched to soap bars. Soap bars are usually packaged in paper, making it basically zero waste. The face, body, shampoo and conditioner bar soaps sold on our site are from vendors such as Little Seed Farm, Viori Beauty, and Ten Thousand Villages.

Handcrafted with rice water and naturally scented, these soap bars are safe for dry, natural and oily hair.
