I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly thinking about how much waste I produce when it comes to my everyday beauty routine. It’s the moment when I’m done with a product and finding myself tossing it out that kills me the most.

Now, as a beauty lover, I find myself recycling daily, but I can’t help but wonder why there’s no effective alternative than the classic reduce reuse and recycle pattern? Does it ever cross your mind that there’s a possible chance that the items don’t actually get recycled and end up in a landfill?

After recently visiting Sephora, I was introduced to a line of refillable products, where you can bring in your empty container and purchase a refillable tube rather than an entirely new product. What a genius idea, right? It feels like what was once a niche category has now become quite common, and we’re slowly seeing more and more brands re-routing their packaging and focusing on reducing their plastic footprint, and we are so here for it.
