What you can do to swap out single use plastic in your skincare routine
Take a look in your bathroom and the dressing table, look at your skincare products and take in just how much plastic there is, if it's like much of mine, I'd like to bet there's a fair bit.
Tubes, tubs, lids and don't even start on some of the packaging they've arrived in. Now these products aren't cheap and I for one am not the type to waste a product simply because I've found a replacement and we wouldn't expect you to either but by identifying the products that have plastic as part of their packaging, you've already made the first step to going plastic free.
This week we help you find the best plastic free alternatives to your much loved skincare products.
