How to Go Green: The Zero Waste Bathroom Edition

At Lil Helper, our mission for 2022 is to empower more families to go waste free. We are not perfect but every bit counts. Small steps can have big impact and more than anything it’s important to remember that just because you can’t do it all, doesn’t mean your actions don’t matter. Let’s take this one room at a time, how can we get closer to a zero waste bathroom?


This is by far my favorite zero waste bathroom change. If you have never tried a bidet, you are missing out. Thankfully, there are countless options! You can get a full fancy bidet from a hardware store like Home Depot. You can get a simple sprayer like many of us already have and use for diapers! There is also a happy medium that combines a little bit of fancy with a little bit of simple. There are nowhere near all the options available and they will save an incredible amount of toilet paper! Plus, you won’t have to stress out about looking for toilet paper.

Cloth Wipes

Now, that lovely bidet I mentioned above will be amazing but not all of us love the feel of a wet tush. Enter, cloth wipes. You already use them for your kids so why not use them for yourself?

Once again, is there nothing these t-shirt wipes or super soft bamboo wipes can’t do? Bonus: You won’t have to do much more laundry AND the bidet will leave you so clean that you will really just need these to dry off.

Hyps Menstrual Pads

Ding Ding Ding! I know y’all have been waiting for these and they are amazing!! If you haven’t jumped on these but are considering them, check out this fantastic review.

We can’t promise that your periods will be fun but Lil Helper aims to make them a little happier. And just think about all the money you’ll save over time, and all the pads you’ll save from the landfill. We are so proud of our hyps and their impact on creating zero waste bathrooms. Did you know we recently went viral on Tik Tok? Check us out there to see Mo talk all things Hyps and zero waste!

Drying your Body

There are so many everyday single-use bathroom products that we can change to more eco-friendly ones.

Here are just a few examples:

Switch out disposable pads for a zero waste bathroom option like the Boofa.

Fun fact: These are AMAZING and can be used in so many different ways.

Towels are not single-use but doesn’t it feel like we are always needing new ones especially for babies who outgrow things ridiculously fast? Or does it feel like your linen closet is overflowing?

Enter the Moasis Beach Towel - it folds super small but packs an absorbent punch you wouldn’t believe. Great for travel and your home bathroom!

What are some ways you have made your bathroom more green?
