Is Your Shampoo Bar Actually Plastic-free?

With the rising concern for plastic in our oceans, food, air and poo, more people are turning to solid shampoo. But, is a shampoo bar actually plastic-free?
Is Your Shampoo Bar Actually Plastic-free

First, let’s understand liquid shampoos

On average, a person goes through close to 1000 shampoo bottles in their lifetime. Globally, roughly 3-5 billion shampoo bottles are trashed every year.

Plastic bottles aren’t just a choking hazard for turtles. Most of us have slowly become aware of the detrimental impact plastic bottles have on our well-being and our environment. From accelerating ocean acidification, making their way up the food chain into our food, or simply sneaking into our food, water, and air as microplastics. We’re literally pooping plastic.

Recently, questions have been raised on not just the packaging, but the ingredients. Some of the most common ingredients in personal care products are petroleum-based or straight up plastic. These chemicals accumulate in our environment and spread toxicity.
