Use bar soaps instead of liquid soaps. According to Conservation Magazine (conservationmagazine.org), a recent study found that bar soaps have a lower environmental impact than liquid soaps in carbon footprint, ecotoxicity, ozone depletion potential and eutrophication potential - that is, liquid soaps are more harmful because they increase the growth of algae and aquatic plants in our waterways hurting our fish. According to Clean Cult (cleancult.com), bar soaps contain fewer chemicals and do just as good a job in preventing the spread of germs as their liquid counterparts. Also, bar soaps are about one third of the cost of liquid soaps.
