Top 5 Best Eco-Friendly Soap Dishes

Best eco friendly and sustainable soap dishes

If you're looking for an easy way to store your soap without harming the environment, you can't go wrong with an eco-friendly soap dish. These beloved accessories offer a stylish solution to annoying soap scum rings while adding instant style to any space. Let's explore the benefits of choosing an eco-friendly soap dish and the five best models to elevate your home.

The Benefits of Choosing an Eco-Friendly Soap Dish

Every year, humans generate over 389 million metric tons of plastic waste, polluting the land, air, and ocean. Many of the culprits are single-use products, but a large percentage of pollution comes from plastic accessories like soap dishes. Switching to an eco-friendly product may seem like a small choice, but it can make a large impact over time. Along with the sustainability benefits, eco-friendly soap dishes offer many additional advantages, which is why they are one of the most commonly used household accessories. Let's explore some of the many benefits they offer.

Keep your kitchen and bathroom clean

There's nothing worse than having to constantly clean the soap scum off your counters, shower, or bathtub caused as your soap bar dries. It's a constant chore that takes time out of your day. By using a soap dish, you no longer have to worry about removing the soap residue that accumulates on these surfaces. Your home can stay cleaner and look better without any added effort. Now that's a win-win!

Fight bacteria

When you use a soap bar and place it directly on a counter or shelf, it can grow bacteria from lack of airflow. The dirt and germs from your body get trapped in the suds and can multiply in the damp surroundings if left for extended periods of time. Soap dishes elevate your bar of soap, allowing for optimal airflow, expediting its dry time, and helping fight against bacteria growth. You don't have to worry about mold growth for unmatched peace of mind when you use your soap.

Lengthen the life of your soap

How often have you dropped your soap when putting it down or watched it slip from its shelf only to break into pieces? Soap is notoriously slippery, and it can easily fall and shatter if there is no safe place to put it. A soap dish offers a secure stand to place your soap, so you don't have to worry about it falling and breaking. By maintaining its shape, you can extend the life of your soap and get the most out of every wash.


As we previously mentioned, soap creates a slick surface that is difficult to hold and often falls onto the bath or shower floor. If this happens when you aren't paying attention, it can cause a health hazard, causing the ground to become slick and putting you or your loved ones at a higher risk of falling. Every year, around 235,000 adults over 15 are admitted to the hospital due to slipping in the bath or shower, making it a serious concern. Help avoid a needless accident by placing your bar of soap securely in an eco-friendly soap dish.
