My bathroom scares me. I have more products than the local salon. And guess what they’re all packaged in – PLASTIC !
Going ‘Package Free’ and ‘Zero Waste’ sounds like such a great simple idea. Guess what – its not simple!!! I need toothpaste and conditioner and makeup to look human !
Recently I started buying brands that will reward me for returning the package.
So i thought i’d share my research with you. I’ve tried to put together a list of brands available in the Indian Subcontinent.
Here we go:
Beauty Brands with a Recycle Program
This Bangalore based Zero-Waste brand is whipping out a wide range of daily care products.
All their packaging is recyclable and they minimise plastic usage.
LUSH (used myself)
Lush is amazing on so many levels! The products smell divine and they minimise waste.
They will give you a free face mask for 5 empty jars.
Another reason to love lush are the package-free soap bars.
One Empty Container = One Stamp*
10 Stamps = 1 Travel-Sized Product
Make-up Brands with a Recycle Program
MAC (used myself)
MAC’s awesome ‘Back to Mac’ program allows you to exchange 6 empty MAC containers for a free lipstick.
Ingot (used myself)
Take your empty Ingot blush palette and they’ll refill it for you. You’ll also pay less then getting a new one.
None of these brands are exactly drug-store affordable. Being green comes with a big price tag. But the price the environment pays is much bigger. Damn that sounded cheesy.
If I’v missed any brands, pls write a comment here and ill add it (and give u credit).
I haven’t personally tried all the brands listed here. If you have, please leave a comment and let me know how it was.
