More and more companies are making shampoo bars that take the plastic packaging out of the equation and work just as well! One example: Trader Joe's
From Trader Joe's:
Trader Joe’s Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo Bar provides a new way to shampoo. Instead of a liquid, packaged in a plastic bottle, our Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo is an oval shaped, solid Bar. The base of this Shampoo Bar is saponified oils (oils that have been converted into soap by reaction with alkali) that include coconut oil, olive oil, and castor oil. Added to this base are jojoba, peppermint, tea tree, and eucalyptus oils. There are also some dried mint leaves that give the white bar an attractive, green-flecked appearance. What this Bar doesn’t have is parabens or sulfates!
This combination not only thoroughly cleans hair, it also creates a truly satisfying shampooing experience. Of course, this satisfaction comes, in part, from the rejuvenating qualities of Peppermint & Tea Tree oils. But it also comes from the knowledge that we’ve packaged this Shampoo with an FSC-certified mix of cardboard from responsible sources.
