The next time you purchase beauty products, consider buying from brands that promote sustainable practices. Using beauty products in eco-friendly containers helps preserve natural resources and allows fewer carbon emissions to be released into the environment (via Petro Packaging). Bamboo, silicone, glass, metal, cornstarch, and biodegradable paperboard are sustainable choices for cosmetics packaging because they can be recycled and require less energy to produce. Neighborhood Botanicals, Everist, Common Heir, Inika, and Pacifica are among beauty brands that are implementing eco-friendly packaging strategies to reduce the damage of non-biodegradable waste to the environment, Insider reports.
As consumers, we can do our part to affect long-term positive environmental changes by making recycling a habit and prioritizing sustainability in our shopping behaviors. Before throwing anything into the trash can, make an effort to sort out what can be recycled. Ultimately, recycling decreases our demand for new materials, therefore preserving many of our valuable and limited resources.
