First part of creating an eco-friendly bathroom means taking a look at the fabrics you use along with shower products. Look for towels made from organic cotton or hemp, cork bath mats as well as soaps, scrubs and body washes with natural ingredients. Avoid plastics or items that will quickly be thrown away (and not decompose). There are a ton of options out there for eco-friendly options right now. Even common brands like Garnier Fructis carry a more Earth friendly line of shampoo and conditioners and at a very low price. Check out more great finds below!

Thanks for putting this together!
I love the idea of a bamboo wood mat!
Do you have any idea where someone can buy hemp shower curtains with pretty patterns? Maybe you’d like to offer this in your shop? Someone suggested I check Tia and Zia and although they have great patterns for bed sheets & duvet covers – nothing for bathrooms!
thanks for your help!

Hi Urban Girl. If you can find some printed hemp online that you like, I can order it and make a shower curtain for you. Unfortunately most of the printed organic fabrics I’ve found are pretty expensive, but I’ll keep looking, too!
I haven’t been able to find anything in hemp. But I will keep that in mind as I continue to look – thanks so much! : )
Try http://www.edenfabrics.com – they have a small selection of printed organic fabrics at pretty good prices.
