Super simple sustainable swaps for everyone.
It’s estimated that approximately 4 billion deodorant containers end up in the landfill every year in the United States. That is a lot of trash. This trash will not decompose- it will sit there for a very long time. This plastic will most likely remain intact longer than we will live. What a terrible burden for future generations.
What if I told you that there is a super simple sustainable swap? You could incorporate this swap into your routine very easily and with no added expense. I bet you are thinking “What’s the Catch?” I promise- no catch.
Here it is- buy your deodorant in a cardboard container. Most brand names now sell identical products in both paper and plastic. I know! It’s too simple. But it really is that straightforward: buy the deodorant you love in paper and reduce plastic pollution 😊
