Earth Day Resolutions

Earth Day is a good time to take stock of your personal impact on the environment and what you can do to better the planet. In terms of makeup and the beauty industry in general there is a huge amount of waste. Looking just at makeup we expose problems such as animal testing and animal rights, production of non-biodegradeable synthetic materials, excess packaging entering landfills, dangerous chemicals, and more.
There are a few things you can do to clean up your beauty habits and clean up the planet:

  •  Do some research into the products you use regularly: Are they certified cruelty free? 
  • Look for products that come in biodegradable or recycled packaging. 
  • Recycle packaging wherever you can, look on the bottom of the package to find out. It may be as simple as rinsing out your empty foundation bottle and putting it in the recycling.  
  • Make beauty products yourself whenever you can! 
  • Try bamboo or vegan makeup brushes.

Happy Earth Day!
