Can anyone recommend a good value and quality shower gel in bulk as refills. I was thinking of 5 litre containers to save plastic bottles and money but would like something of descent quality. Any ideas much appreciated.

I buy an ethical brand which comes in 500ml bottles so decent size and they are fully recyclable. It's also gentle on the skin. I'd be worried about the harshness of a soap that comes in 5l bottles.

Is that cover washing up liquid as a hand wash?

Good idea yorkiedoorkie - there is an organic farm shop where they sell that sort of thing - not sure how expensive it will be....just want good family hygiene!smile

Or soap bars? Just not the ones that come in plastic packaging... I think ethical living does come at a cost. And then it's looking at all aspects of ethics. Do you reduce plastic but then flush more chemicals down the drain? Do you buy a cheap large brand to save plastic from a factory or support the local soap shop? Do you then sacrifice animal welfare? Etc etc.

All interesting points - but worth considering carefully.... Thank you

I was thinking I really want to buy some, too!

I don't want anti-bacterial, antiseptic smells or £60+ for 5 litres.
wondering about this one.

biggreensmile.com have faith in nature 5L bottles for around £35 at the moment as it's 25% off.

However it is much cheaper (and more environmentally friendly for several reasons) to just use bars of soap in the shower rather than body wash. Just get a soap dish to put on the side of the bath/shower so it doesn't slip off!

I've moved to soap.

Even if I can't find ones wrapped in paper everywhere - they last much longer and there is much less plastic being used.
(Cheaper also)
