The best eco-friendly beauty products that don't cost the earth

Section: Skin

From refillable products to face wipe alternatives, here’s how to make your beauty routine more planet-friendly. 

We'd like to think that we're all pretty conscious of trying to reduce our daily environmental footprint.

And yet, while we might be making small daily changes to our everyday routine, according to Zero Waste Week, the beauty industry was responsible for producing more than 120 billion units of packaging which were mostly non-recyclable last year.

If we want to create real change, therefore, we need to put pressure on those brands producing products in the first place.

Unfortunately, it's often the case that products marketed with 'eco-friendly', 'organic' or 'sustainable' labels often come with a luxury premium.

Shopping sustainably should be an option for every consumer— not just those with a higher income.

Thankfully, high street beauty brands are listening and starting to deliver Earth-friendly options that don't break the bank.
