Ways to Reduce or Reuse

Consider investing in a cloth shower curtain and polyester shower liner, which are machine washable and typically last longer than a plastic curtain.

When a plastic shower curtain is no longer usable for its initial purpose, it could be cut up and used like a tarp or waterproof liner. You could also use a piece of old shower curtain as a table cover for a messy craft or painting project.
