Their mission is to end throwaway culture and they are calling on all brands and retailers to join them in a pledge to donate or redistribute their stock instead of destroying it.

5 Reasons to Make the Switch to Solid Shampoo Bars: An Environmental and Personal Hygiene Perspective
If you're looking to upgrade your grooming routine while simultaneously reducing your environmental impact, solid shampoo bars might be the perfect solution. Here are five reasons why you should consider losing your bottle when it comes to shampoo, switching to solid shampoo bars...
Introducing our solid shampoo bar's ingredients. Ingredient number 8: Essential tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is claimed as useful for treating dandruff, acne, lice, herpes, insect bites, scabies, and skin fungal or bacterial infections. However, due to limited research, the jury is still out on those claims...

Introducing our solid shampoo bar's ingredients. Ingredient number 7: Essential mint oil
Apparently Alexander the Great believed that mint oil had "stimulating properties". He forbid his soldiers to consume it for fear that it would conjure erotic and distracting feelings in his men!

Introducing our solid shampoo bar's ingredients. Ingredient number 7: Sodium Lactate
A soft shampoo bar is harder to make (they take longer to cue and firm up, and can be difficult to get out of their moulds). They are also more fragile, needing more packaging to protect them in storage and when being posted to customers. They also don't last as long when using them.

Introducing our solid shampoo bar's ingredients. Ingredient number 6: Organic Shea Butter
Shea butter is used in many cosmetic products as it boosts skin moisture, has anti-inflammatory properties and contains antioxidants (a favourite of folks looking for anti-aging help...).

How do you convince a well established, profitable industry that's dominated by multi-national conglomerates to fundamentally rethink how they make and sell one of their core products?
I don't think there's a playbook or "X step" process for doing it.

Tidy is an attempt to do that.
