Adopting a greener, more environmentally friendly lifestyle has been on the forefront of my mind lately. One of my 2017 goals was to actually reduce waste in my green beauty routine and I'm happy to say I'm on the right track! I've also noticed a lot of new, innovative packaging options from green beauty brands.
Today I'm sharing a few products made in compostable packaging, drastically reducing your environmental footprint!
Deodorant Stick / Meow Meow Tweet
Meow Meow Tweet was the first brand I discovered that offered compostable packaging. One of the bigger names in green beauty deodorants, MMT now offers a deodorant stick in packaging that is totally biodegradable.
I can tell you it's also a moisturizing, lightly scented product that is long lasting and doesn't leave any residue. I'm currently using the Lemon Eucalyptus* scent but they also offer a Lavender Bergamot option.
Fresh Mint Lip Balm / Fable Naturals
Made in Vancouver, Fable Naturals has a line of bath and body products for every green beauty lover. They also have a line of lip balms made in cardboard packaging that is biodegradable, stating that you'll need just a few weeks to break it down. How cool is that?
Fountain of Youth Balm / Plant Makeup
Plant Makeup offers so many products in eco friendly packaging from reusable glass and metal containers to these compostable balms. They also offer lip sticks and a bronzer (adorably named Glow Stick) in packaging that will break down in your own garden!
Toothbrush / Brush with Bamboo
Using a biodegradable toothbrush is an easy switch to a more environmentally friendly oral care routine. You do have to be careful though, as I've seen some packaging in plastic in stores, and others use pig bristles. These ones are not only vegan and BPA free, but the handle is made from bamboo, a truly sustainable material.
