We swimmers, well, we wash our hair a lot more than the average bear. On that topic, I recently found myself reading this brilliant piece that popped up on my social media from National Geographic called '4 Reasons to Ditch Your Shampoo Bottle for a Bar' - part of a series they have called Planet or Plastic? - a multiyear effort to raise awareness about the global plastic waste crisis.
Shampoo & conditioner is something i'm actually pretty picky about and yes, the typical brands/products I usually buy come in big thick plastic bottles... but after reading this, my partner Alex and I thought we'd give the bars a go.
There'll be plenty of chances to trial our first batch over the next few weeks after training sessions, so i'll report back and let you know if they work!
