Why To Love Bar Soap


We throw out more than 552 million shampoo bottles every year.

Switching to bar soaps prevents that.

When you use up a bar of soap… is just gone. 

There is no need to rinse out any container for recycling.

Being a dry bar of soap, all it needs for packaging is paper. 

Liquid soap requires a bottle, and it’s often a plastic bottle.

Yes, we can recycle but not using plastic is always better if you can help it.

Since plastic can only be recycled 2 to 3 times before their structure weakens too much for further processing, we all know where plastic bottles ultimately end up in. Yes, the landfill or the incineration plant, or worse, the ocean!

Bar soaps are lighter and last longer, which means a much lower overall carbon footprint.

It takes 9 times more energy to transport liquid soap than bar soap.

(owing to the plastic bottle and water content, liquid soaps are a lot bigger and heavier than bar soaps, so it takes more trips and fuel to transport liquid soaps)

A bar of soap typically lasts longer than a bottle of liquid soap.

A consumer study discovered that people use 6 times more liquid soap than bar soap to wash their hands. That translates to an even lower carbon footprint per use for bar soaps!

For the same amount of bar soap and liquid soap in weight, the bar soap will last 6 times longer. This is the reason the manufacturers moved towards selling liquid soaps in the first place. It allows them to sell 6 times more products.

Lesser chemicals are required to make bar soap, which means better for the environment.

Since bar soaps do not contain water and are more stable.

Great for air-travel.

If you’re a light packer, you’d probably appreciate the ability to bring bar soaps in your carry-on without worrying about the liquids restriction. If you do have a checked-in luggage, it is also great to not have to worry about your bar soap spilling!

You can save a lot of money by switching to reasonably priced bar soaps.

Be good to the environment, your skin, and your pocket. Switch to a bar soap today!
