As part of Plastic Free July we thought we'd share some easy and achievable swaps you can make to eliminate plastic from your beauty routine.
Invest in a safety razor
Did you know that it is estimated that 2 billion plastic razors and blades are thrown out every year and cannot even be recycled? Our safety razor is a one off purchase that can last a lifetime and gives you a closer shave! We share more reasons to make the switch to the safety razor HERE.
Reusable bamboo cotton rounds
Do you use disposable cotton rounds? Did you know that cotton farming has a huge environmental cost, both in water consumption and the leaching of chemicals into the ecosystem. They also tend to be packaged in plastic. A great swap is our reusable make-up rounds are made from sustainable bamboo. Once used, just place them in the cotton net bag included and add them into your next laundry load. Easy!
Use plastic free beauty brands
Our bamboo toothbrushes are fully biodegradable.
By using more bamboo, we increase the need for its demand which will call for the rise of more bamboo farms. The fast-growing nature will help farms develop quickly, which is another great way to reduce carbon from the air.
Instead of using face wipes that create more waste and are filled with synthetic chemicals and alcohol make the switch to the konjac sponge. Popular in japanese, chinese and korean beauty routines.
Bamboo exfoliating glove
A healthier and more sustainable option to use instead of the plastic exfoliating gloves you buy from the supermarket.
