Started by Sahar Mansoor, Bare Necessities is a zero-waste lifestyle and personal care brand offering natural, eco-friendly products made with ethically-sourced ingredients that are available online. Seeing how there was a real dearth of bodycare products that were chemical and plastic-free when she first started leading a zero-waste life, Mansoor decided to take things into her own hands and curate products that would not harm the planet and also promote a zero-waste lifestyle.
Unlike plastic and other materials which we find in our regular bodycare and lifestyle products, Bare Necessities packs its merch in zero-waste, completely recyclable packaging. They have compostable bamboo toothbrushes, soap bars, beeswax lip balm, dry shampoos and even organic toothpaste in jars. Our favourite is their Espresso Yourself Coffee Body Scrub which smells delicious and is made with recycled coffee! Awesome, eh?
They even have stainless steel straws, zero-waste postcards, pencils, coconut bowls and bamboo spoon and fork for cutlery, chemical-free surface cleaners and more. Prices start from INR 99. All these good-for-everyone products are encouraging us to take a hard look at our life and make some much-needed changes.
