My top tips for the bathroom would be finding a bulk source for shampoo and conditioner. It's using solid soap, in lieu of liquid soap, because usually liquid soap comes in plastic container and replacing the disposables for reusables. For example, my husband has shaves with a double edge razor, in lieu of a disposable razor. He dries his blade after each use so that the blade actually lasts six months, instead of just a few days. We also have cotton rounds that are washable, in lieu of cotton balls. We make a home tooth powder with baking soda.
