Sustainable beauty is becoming a thing and it is a good idea to ride on the wave. Here are 5 ways in which you can contribute to taking care of the environment!
We are in 2021 and it is high time we revisited our beauty and skincare routines to implement some tweaks to make them more environment-friendly. There are simple ways to do so, what are you waiting for?
Get big bottles
If you already know you’ll be using the same product over and over again, it is better to get a larger bottle. You’ll be saving money and you’ll be sparing the environment from several smaller ones.
Get reusable makeup remover pads
Did you know that non-organic cotton farming industries are one of the major sources of environmental pollution? By using fabric makeup remover pads you’ll be saving money and reducing your waste.
Don’t ever use disposable razors
Single blade with replaceable cartridges are a much greener alternative and you don’t even need to throw the plastic body ever –unless it breaks, but I’ve had mine for over 5 years and it is still in perfect shape!
Get a menstrual cup
Sanitary pads and tampons might be convenient, but they are responsible for more than 200,000 tons of waste per year. The average woman throws away up to 150Kg of tampons, pads and applicators in their lifetime. Menstrual cups can last for 10 years, they are safe and reusable and they are very comfortable as well.
Opt for recyclable packaging
Embrace natural products as much as possible –use coconut oil for your hair, DIY face masks–, and when that is not an option turn to sustainable brands that recycle their packing or purchase products unpacked.
It might seem difficult to change our life completely to stick to a zero-waste living, but it is well worth trying, and small changes in your routine can have a great deal of impact in our world. So what are you waiting for?
