The booming $500 billion per year global personal care industry relies on plastic. That shampoo? Housed in a single use plastic bottle—often fully or partly unrecyclable. That body wash? Plastic.
There’s a steady stream of plastic leaving our bathrooms. To put this into perspective, every year Aussies consume almost one billion single-use plastic bottles of personal care items like shower wash, shampoo, conditioner and handwash. It’s frightening.
Only 9% of plastic used is recycled. More frightening still, up to 130,000 tonnes of plastic will find its way into our waterways and into the ocean.
We’ve worked with chemists and sustainability experts to develop a powdered based solution in compostable sachets which is not only kind to the planet, but our plant based formulation is kind to humans too. Making the switch to plastic free alternatives needs to be seamless.
That’s why we’re bundling all your bathroom needs into one easy plastic free subscription package. And unlike other plastic free subscriptions,this one does not require you to refill and send back your empty container, to be washed and refilled. Because, let’s be honest. Who has the time?
We’ve removed the water, because 90% of personal care products are water. The impact of shipping water and plastic around is not only bad for the planet, but bad for us.
Products with water require preservatives to preserve the water. We’ve simply crystalised the ingredients into a plant derived powder formulation. Our products are plant based, vegan, cruelty free and palm oil free.
We’ve started with hand wash and body wash products. Watch this space for the next reveal of what’s next in the baresop product line.
