Zero Waste is fast becoming a household phrase. It focuses on the conservation of all resources by being more responsible in the production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of all products and materials without threatening the environment. While going zero waste is a step by step process and is something everyone can strive for, it’s important to note that it’s a utopia. Nothing will ever be fully zero waste. But we can get close! Finding ways to re-use packaging that contained something you purchased is a large step towards zero waste utopia.
Here at Alō Goods we package all our products in re-usable, recycled, recyclable, and compostable packages. One of our favorite packages is our soap bags… because they are super re-usable!
Go Zero Waste with Your Soap
The Zero Waste Soap Saver:
Place pieces of soap bars that are too small to keep using into the bag, you can then use the entire bag as a pre-soaped washcloth. This is a great way to get the most out of your favorite Alō Goods Soap and to be the ultimate zero waste soap coinsurer.
The Gardeners Soap Sack
Use our bags as a “Soap Sack” outside, simply leave the soap in the bag and hang it over your outside spigot. Leave the soap in the bag and use the entire bag to wash your hands when you are done gardening or working in the yard. Just hang it back on the spigot to dry.
Reduce, Reuse, Drink Tea Bag
What??? Yes you can! First, wash the bag. Then, add your favorite loose-leaf tea to the bag and steep it, so convenient.
Potpourri Sachets for Zero Waste Aromas
Simply fill one of our zero waste soap bags with your favorite potpourri or dried herbs and stash them throughout your house or in your car. Here are a few of our favorite blends:
- Lavender Buds & Cedarwood Chips to keep moths away.
- Dried Balsam, Fir, and Pine Tree for that woodsy scent in your closets, drawers or bathrooms.
Go Zero Waste with a Gift Bag
How fun would it be to receive a gift in one of these cute bags? Use it for small gifts or gift cards. You can even decorate the bags yourself and personalize them.
Reuse our soap bags as a Travel Pouch
Traveling requires planning and organization and these bags can be used for many things while packing, chargers, change, hair accessories etc. If you are one of those travelers who travels with carry-on luggage only, our bags work exceptionally well for makeup. Especially all-natural Mineral Makeup that is usually packaged in smaller containers and will pass TSA standards.
Our favorite are the sample size jars from Pure Confidence Minerals, the powder lasts about a week and travels very well. You can use one bag for mineral makeup, one for brushes and even one for your skincare. They will keep you organized wherever you are traveling, being a hotel room or guest room with friends or family, your makeup is all in one place ready for use.
We hope we have opened your eyes and gotten you excited to re-use our Soap Bags. Now, tell us what you have used them for, or are going to use them for!
