Hey Aerie Fam, Christina, the Lead of Aerie Store Experience comin ‘atcha with some bathroom tips in honor of Earth Day!

I’ve been low waste for 3 years, so I’ll be sharing my tips, tricks and fave items that have helped me keep my impact on the planet minimal. Keep in mind: this is what works for me and my lifestyle, it was a process, and the bathroom is a tough area to reduce your waste! What works for me and what works for you could look completely different (and that’s okay).

There’s nothing like a relaxing shower! Being low waste, there’s no skimping on those shower essentials, just eco-swaps (and a DIY)!

The most AMAZINGLY EASY exfoliating body scrub:

  • ¾ cup coffee grounds (utilize already used coffee grounds)!
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil (you can use more or less depending on your preference)
  • Pinch of Cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy (keeps for around 2 months)!

  • PRO TIP: I will save up my grounds from the week, but you don’t want them getting yucky. After you make your coffee, spread them out in a thin layer on a baking sheet to dry or put them immediately in a little olive oil.

A low waste bathroom is not as hard as you think (and can be quite pretty too)!  Keep away from aerosols, plastic and look at reducing consumption (hello, bidet!) to start your low waste bathroom. And before you “poo poo” (lol) on a bidet, don’t knock it ‘till you try it!

What eco swaps do YOU want to know about? Best practices of your own? Throw it in the comments!
