Our Choice in Zero Waste Bathroom Products for 365 days and counting…
If you have been tuning into our Instagram or Facebook stories, you may have seen me chat a few times over the course of the year about zero waste bathroom products. After 365 full days of review, we are 100% certain that these products will suit EVERY single home. They are that good.
As a Latin woman with very thick and unmanageable hair, I was at a loss with how to go about turning my once plastic-filled bathroom into a zero-waste one, but all of my fears were set aside after finding this product line. I came across Plaine Products while researching after a horrible run-in with a zero waste shampoo bar that left my hair feeling like it needed to go into rehab. Luckily, once this precious box arrived, my hair, body, and face were just lavished in the best quality ingredients a gal could ask for.
Did I mention that they are kid-safe? Yes!
Before we get started, Plaine Products was kind enough to offer all of our followers a 20% off discount code
Please enter WonderMamas20 at checkout!
How It Works
To start, simply head to the Plaine Products website and choose your “box”. For reference, we chose the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, face wash and face lotion for our box*. Let them know where to send the box, what kind of subscription timeline you prefer, and do not forget to include your discount code (WonderMamas20 for 20% off!).
Sit back and wait for the box to arrive. You will receive all of the bottles securely tightened with a bottle cap and twist on pumps to attach, once opened. Once the bottles are empty, simply rinse out and send back with the return label, but KEEP the twist on pumps. The pumps will be used for your NEXT box of bathroom supplies! Return the used bottles in the same box that they came in (returns are free!) and continue this process over and over again.
While you can easily get a one time box, that would not really make sense in keeping your bathroom zero waste. I highly recommend signing up for a subscription box and keeping your bathroom free from plastic for good! It may take a bit of trial and error to get your exact time frame down (the time in between receiving your next box), but we figured it out within 2 months!

Our Review PLUS…
The coolest thing about reviewing these products for 365 days and counting is that we have had the chance to have families and friends from all over the World come and try out our products!
- First up, my mother told me that the shampoo and conditioner “smelled absolutely delicious and made her hair feel very silky”. She has coarse hair like me so that is a huge compliment!
- My father does not have much hair (haha), but he LOVED the smell of the body wash!! He was all about it!
- My grandmother and cousin came in from Mexico and both adored the products so much that they were featured in several social media story posts chatting about how much they admired the company and their amazing ingredients!
- My girlfriend Kellee, who is an amazing flight attendant and travels all over the World, came in to visit us for a week and could not get over how much she loved the products. She ordered some for herself!
As for our own family, I will never use anything else for my family. We are all thrilled with the products, the design, the simplicity, and the results.
My hair has life and volume again, my face is always break-out free and I trust the ingredients as if I made the products myself.
Plaine Products was founded by two sisters, Lindsey & Alison Delaplaine, who had dreams of fighting the global plastic crisis.
Lindsey spent 10 years living in the Bahamas and witnessed, first hand, the plastic crisis washed up on the beaches. She took a look around her own bathroom and realized changes needed to happen. Instead of looking to others to change the world, she decided to change it with the help of her sister. Gosh…I admire that.
If you did not already know the scary truth about plastic, here it is:
Every single plastic that has EVER been made (EVER) still exists.
Globally, we produce 300 million tons of plastic waste every single year. Of that 300 million tons, 78% is not reclaimed or recycled.
Lindsey and Alison spent a year researching natural products and ingredients. They were set on staying true to their toxic-free, and cruelty-free standards. These women try and personally approve every single product in the line; as do their children and husbands!
**Lindsey and Allison were kind enough to gift us with our Plaine Products goods but every single part of our review is honest, tried and tested (365 days worth of trial!). As you all know, we take our reviews very seriously and would never work with or share a company that we do not use (and love!) first hand. I do hope you give Plaine Products a chance and reduce plastic in your own home!
