What Can You Do to Have a More Sustainable Beauty Routine?
Think holistically about your routine and be sure to educate yourself about the companies that you are buying. "Purchase from brands whose practices you trust, reuse packaging where possible, and commit to properly recycling the rest," said Brown.
Go through your favorite products and consider the brands behind them. Be sure to research what causes the brands advocate for on its website (if any), and really think about parts of your routine that could be changed for less wasteful alternatives. For example, if you're using several makeup wipes everyday, which end up in landfills, consider investing in a reusable and machine-washable Makeup Eraser ($20) to reduce your personal waste.
