How to Reduce Waste in Your Beauty Routine

In a world where sustainability is becoming increasingly important, our beauty routines offer a significant opportunity to reduce waste and lessen our environmental impact. The beauty industry, while providing us with products that help us feel and look our best, also contributes substantially to plastic pollution and waste. From single-use packaging to non-recyclable containers, the environmental cost of our beauty habits can be quite high. Fortunately, there are numerous ways we can make our routines more eco-friendly without sacrificing the quality of the products we love.

1. Choose products that come in biodegradable or recyclable packaging

Our entire nil beauty range comes in recyclable packaging! Say goodbye to the plastic wrap that comes with most makeup products.

2. Choose refillable products

Here at nil, we offer eco store shampoo and conditioner in our refillery, so you don't need to buy any extra plastic. We also offer shampoo and conditioner bars made in New Zealand that last forever and come in cardboard packaging.

3. Shop locally

We offer some really cool products from local companies such as Antipodes and Seasick sunscreen. When you buy locally made products from us they are always sustainable, eco friendly and cruelty free. What's not to love?!

4. Buy reusable products

Our makeup wipes are made from 100% wool, so simply toss them in the washing machine between uses. No more single use cotton pads that will just end up in landfill!

By incorporating these simple yet effective strategies into your beauty routine, you can make a significant impact on reducing waste and promoting a more sustainable lifestyle. Remember, the journey towards a greener beauty routine is a gradual process, and even the smallest changes can contribute to a healthier planet. Let's embrace the challenge and take pride in making conscious choices that benefit both our beauty and the environment.
