A major part of our daily lives is our body care routine. This everyday ritual is likely second nature for many of us. Thanks to increased awareness, the beauty industry is finally waking up to the environmental impact of the products it produces, but it's not only about being cruelty-free and vegan.

With more consumers demanding cleaner, sustainably packaged beauty products there are a ton of ways to get involved and make a difference. Here are our top tips for a sustainable beauty routine that’s kinder to the planet…

What is sustainable living?

Simply put, sustainable living involves reducing the number of Earth's resources that you use every day, in an effort to help protect it and have as little of an impact on the Earth as possible.

Why is living sustainably important?

Currently, there are multiple industries (beauty included) that are producing resources using energy that is non-renewable and creating waste at a rate that isn't sustainable for long-term growth.

This exploitation of the environment leads to issues, such as pollution and climate change, which cause harm to the environment, wildlife, and humans.

Sustainability is an ever-changing target but by making some small changes to your daily lifestyle, you can help to tackle these issues and feel better about the purchases you make.

Action Items: Sustainable Living Tips

Calculate your plastic footprint

The first step is to find out exactly how your unique lifestyle is impacting our environment. Take rePurpose Global’s 3-Minute Plastic Footprint Calculator and break down your annual plastic footprint. Once you know your pain points, it’s much easier to solve the problem. With rePurpose Global, you can offset your plastic footprint for less than the price of a coffee a month and work to reduce your daily consumption at the same time.

Reduce the number of single plastics you use

Single-use products, particularly plastic ones, tend to end up in landfills and the ocean, causing harm to wildlife and the environment. Prevent this by choosing to use reusable and eco-friendly alternatives instead. There are a variety of reusable personal care products such as reusable cotton swabs, makeup removing pads, and sponges. 

Recycle, when you can

Recycling isn’t just for the kitchen. Make sure you’re recycling your body care products as well, by putting your empty bottles in the correct bins. Also, try to get creative and reuse product containers as many times as possible. 

Educate yourself using credible resources

(AKA, not Facebook posts.)
