2. Kleen | Handmade | Pure Shore Soap On A Rope
We love Kleen’s Soap on a Rope – not only is it a convenient alternative to plastic shower gel bottles, but the unscented soap provides special care to irritable, allergy-prone skin. The bars are crafted in small batches in Kent with plant-based ingredients and botanical essential oils, ensuring that they are paraben-free and have no artificial dyes, preservatives or fragrances.

5. Goldrick | Loofah Dishwashing Sponge
These pure loofah dishwashing sponges from Goldrick are a perfect replacement for plastic sponges.
