Women's Health Glow - Reduce Your Beauty Waste
The average American uses 9 to 15 personal care products a day. Without doubt this creates a serious mountain of packaging waste, much of which is difficult, if not impossible, to recycle. However, being an eco-beauty doesn’t equate to a naked face and hairy legs. Try making some of these swaps for a cleaner, greener, lower-impact beauty regimen.
REFILLABLE MAKEUP COMPACTS
The right collection of cosmetics highlights your femme-fatale features. However, most makeups are fit into bulky packaging that is impossible to recycle. Next time you’re at the bare end of your favorite bronzer, blush, or eye shadow, look for cosmetic collections with product refills that fit into reusable cases.
