It's about finding your comfort level when it comes to "green" (and non-green) cosmetics.
Natural cosmetics used to mean compromising
- not so anymore!
The choices we make have an impact!
Tips on how you
can be more "green"
are some companies that have some great programs:
- Don't bring the bag home - just the product!
- Clean your old empty palettes and use them to put your favorite lipsticks and harder
cream products in - use it for your purse, office stash or travel.
- Wipe out old compacts and give them to a niece, granddaughter, etc - those little
girls LOVE to play pretend with them.
- Use organic cotton makeup pads, washcloths, etc. Over 16% of the world's pesticides
are used on cotton alone!
The Body Shop- The pioneer of goodwill cosmetics! This company walks the walk. Zero animal testing, Community
