If you’re someone who’s wanted to contribute more (or for the first time) to the efforts of protecting and saving the earth beyond the typical recycling paper and plastic water bottles, then that’s an easy fix – do what we do best here and focus on the beauty perspective!

Although it may seem that you’re placing the focus squarely on you, you’d only be half right because there are many beauty brands that are quite adept at fulfilling our beauty needs, but whose philosophies incorporates the needs of the environment as well. In other words, you benefit from purchasing a pretty lipgloss that comes in a container that’s 100% recyclable. It’s a win-win ladies! And by the way, did someone say ‘vanity’ is an ugly word?

It’s only in recent times that the term ‘eco-friendly’ became a buzz word that’s sometimes added to product descriptions to gain an advantage over the competition. But which companies are really walking the walk?

Nature’s Gate Body Wash ($7.49, is walking the walk because every bottle this brand uses is fully recyclable. Just think for a moment, with every push of the nozzle you’ll be reminded of your role as an advocate for sustainability. The stand out feature of this product is how hydrated your body feels afterwards because of the aloe vera, so much so that you almost don’t need to use a body lotion or butter afterwards, however, with the ever present threat of ashiness, this product benefit might as well be a mute point. The truth can’t be helped.
