Green Tip Consider using bar soap instead of body wash. Bar soap is less expensive, and it saves packaging waste. The average bar of soap lasts for about 20 showers, whereas a 16 0z bottle of body wash lasts for an average of 8 showers. Also body wash costs about 4 times as much as soap. If every household in the U.S. replaced a bottle of body wash with a bar of soap, roughly 2.5 MILLION pounds of plastic containers could be diverted from the waste stream.
