Yes, it is challenging to change products, habits, and equipment in the bathroom. There’s always an impact on our routine, on our pockets (mostly money-saving!) and surely on the planet.
Probably you have already adopted some of these ideas. So just be open to following others and taking bathroom sustainability to the next level. We strongly believe in the power of a lot of people acting correctly through small steps leading to big changes.
