With the summer holidays fast approaching, many of us will now be making that long list of essentials we obviously can’t holiday without, taking the long journey into town to hastily make our most important of purchases, drawn in by clever marketing and an urge to buy everything in miniature to save on space.
But what if we told you that you could make a few small changes, potentially save yourself some money (more to spend on holiday treats; I can taste that mojito already!) and to top it off, if you are travelling with hand luggage only – get around the faff of see-through bags at security!
Can it be done?! Our experiments show it is possible. Huzzah! Here are our top tips for a plastic-free holiday:
- Reap the numerous benefits of bars over bottles. Currently within the PFG committee family, we are using bars for the following:
- Body wash
- Facial moisturiser
- Body butter
That’s 7 bottles saved already! If you are worried about space, most bars can be carefully cut down at home to make your packing even easier. We recommend carrying bars in cloth bags to keep everything neat and tidy, these can be washed and reused over and over again. They also have the additional benefit of absorbing any moisture to keep your bars at their best!
