There’s still a chance for you to win a family-sized haul of The Cheeky Panda goodies and more by entering our competition – Do you have the most sustainable bathroom?

Colin the Panda wants as many of you to get involved as possible so he’s put together a few tips on how you can reduce your plastic use.

Get a Bamboo Toothbrush

Bamboo toothbrushes are a great way to ditch excess plastic and feel more of the Panda experience. The wooden handle is compostable but remember to deposit the plastic bristles. If you’re an electric toothbrush user, check with your supplier if you can recycle the replacement heads!

Shower Time 

Ditch gels and plastic packaged shampoo’s and go back to basics with bar soap. Shampoo and Conditioner come in this form too and they last so much longer.

Shaving

Here focus on less waste – Disposable razors create lots of plastic waste and are harder to recycle. Opt for safety razors which will last much longer and keep plastic use to a minimum. There are lots of zero waste shaving products out there with metal heads and wooden handles. You can always shave less too!

Cleaning

A less obvious consideration – how are you cleaning your bathroom? Check the product ingredients of your cleaning supplies and check they don’t have any harmful microbeads. Choose products made from natural and environmentally-friendly ingredients.

Washing your hands

Again, use bar soap. This will cut down on your plastic use and C02 emissions. Oh, and they’re cheaper.
