The article was great. However I have found that the greatest waste in the bathroom comes from the paper we use. I have successfully switched to a no paper bathroom. It is working great. I had already eliminated most disposables, and used home made instead when I can. Especially makeup, toothpaste, soap, deodorants, etc.
