It’s always important to be aware of our consumer behaviors’ environmental impact on the globe and we had to slide in and talk about it. While the beauty industry still has a long way to go in terms of achieving a more sustainable future, the good news is that many brands are taking steps in the right direction, such as using more environmentally friendly and ethical practices when sourcing ingredients and packaging products, as well as implementing environmentally-focused recycling initiatives and programs.
Even though there’s still a lot of work to be done, every little bit helps, so take a step in the right direction and try to buy your beauty products from brands focused on sustainability wherever feasible. It’s crucial to shop with intention, and if you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up the top brands for you to try out and well, we hope you’d consider incorporating at least one environmentally responsible change into your everyday routine, particularly your beauty routine, this year.
