Switch To A More Eco-Friendly Beauty Routine #JustOneSwitch

Join our #JustOneSwitch Campaign today!

Switch to a more eco-friendly beauty routine in support of the planet.

Globally the beauty industry is said to generate 120 billion units of packaging every year, much of it non-recyclable. This ends up in landfill and in our oceans. Whilst more of us are now taking action, it simply isn’t enough and the amount of plastic entering our oceans is forecast to nearly triple by 2040.

But the issue of sustainable beauty is broader than packaging alone. It’s about the quality of the ingredients, how ethically and responsibly they are sourced and the impact this has on our natural resources, whether they are formulated to be non-toxic, cruelty-free and so much more.

If one of your goals is to become more eco-friendly and minimise your personal impact then switching to sustainable beauty products is a great place to start. You don’t need to change everything, start with a single switch.

After all, making an impact doesn’t take a few of us doing it perfectly, it takes millions of us doing it imperfectly.

Inspired by Anne Marie Bonneau, Zero Waste Chef

We’ve curated some great sustainable beauty switches to inspire you. It could be as simple as:

  • Swapping disposable cotton wool pads for reusable cotton makeup removers
  • Choosing plastic-free shampoo bars over shampoo bottles
  • Switching to natural, plastic-free and recyclable deodorants
  • Opting for beauty products that only use sustainable and ethically-sourced ingredients
  • Selecting vegan-friendly and cruelty-free

Checkout our #JustOneSwitch ideas or visit Counter Culture Store at www.counterculturestore.co.uk to see our range of sustainable and ethical beauty products.
