See it, say it, action it

Now that you have identified the things cluttering your bathroom as time wasters, this is the year to let go of things that stop you from living the life you want. Invest 10 minutes per day to declutter one shelf, drawer or cupboard and let go of the things that no longer warrant space in your lives and start to regain control over your home.

Why is Eco Organising Good for the Planet?

When we start to identify the things we need, use and importantly we stop adding unnecessary stuff to our homes, you not only save time and money, it’s good for our planet too.

Everything we bring into our space comes with a carbon footprint, it takes energy to manufacture things. As a professional Eco Organiser® the common items I see cluttering bathrooms are promotional sample packs, Christmas gifts, soap on a rope, hotel shampoos and conditioners, out of date pharmaceuticals, gadgets to groom, blow, straighten, curl and wax hair and body just to name a few .

Responsible Disposal

Is it important to only give away or donate things in good condition, we don’t want to be passing rubbish onto someone else? But what can we do with this stuff, you ask?

Give to someone setting up home-student, setting up home after a divorce, rebuilding life after a robbery or natural disaster

Refugee centers will take certain items, always best to ask first, women refugee centers and emergency accommodation centers often look for such items.

Ask your local pharmacy if they take old pharmaceuticals; do not flush them down the toilet as this affects animals living in the health of our waterways and oceans.

Many items can be recycled from the bathroom through Terracycle such as- cosmetics, oral care, hair products and razors, visit Eco Organiser® Useful Links to find out how you can responsibly disposal of bathroom waste.
