Hopefully not perceived as repetitive, the Earth needs our help, and that’s a fact that we already know. However, significant lifestyle changes may seem daunting especially in today’s society where people tend to fall on various ends of the sustainability spectrum product alternatives. You’re either eliminating every single plastic in your home, or opting to use a paper straw from time to time. If you happen to fall under the latter, there is nothing to be ashamed of. If there is one thing we at Beauty Binge like to emphasize, it’s the importance of taking small steps towards a larger goal. We don’t believe in grand gestures and a all-or-nothing mentality, we simply want to be that filter of responsibility that you can put on when you want to make a difference. Beauty Binge has carefully selected brands that offer alternative personal care products that will leave you guilt-free, as well as push you one step closer to a cleaner lifestyle. If this sounds like a gradual journey you wish to take, then here are six BB-approved alternatives to your everyday products: Did you know that every year, 1 million plastic toothbrushes are sent straight to our world’s landfill, with only 10% of it getting recycled. It’s a long-term problem that can be solved by just swapping to a more eco-friendly alternative. Our bamboo toothbrushes are made of 95% renewable sources, and are 95% biodegredable. Plus, Brush with Bamboo plants one tree per day to offset our environmental footprint. Ever wondered why living minimalistic lifestyles count as being eco-friendly? Well, that’s due to the fact that you avoid wastage of products that might have gone bad. A solution to this? Why not invest in multi-purpose products that you can utilize for your everyday needs. Conscious Coconut’s coconut oil has over 20 different uses! From make-up removers, to stretch mark ointments, this product can potentially last you for any and every task at hand! Here’s the truth about toothpaste; it’s meant to clean your pearly whites, and meant to do only that. Research is constantly revealing all kinds of ‘nasties’ that some commercial toothpaste products have that can even lead to cancer and what’s more is that toothpaste tubes are un-surprisingly plastic-heavy. Thus, dental tablets seem like the obvious best option. They’re cruelty-free, backed by dentists, and environmental-friendly due to its paper packaging. Another plastic-free alternative to one of the most bulkiest packaging we have sitting in our shower. In an attempt to avoid this exact situation, HiBAR’s shape was no guesswork. It was been specifically designed to be a comfortably grasped shampoo/conditioner bar with the beveled top meant to be applied on the scalp and beautifully packed in paper packaging. Gorgeous hair without the guilt of wastage. The single-use plastic era is slowly come to an end (we hope) and thanks to social media, non-plastic straws seem to be in trend too nowadays. It’s pretty self-explanatory but bamboo straws are eco-friendly and completely free from chemicals, pesticides and other harmful materials. Plus, unlike paper straws, they have a lone shelf-life so you don’t have to worry about constantly replacing them. Short durability, skin irritation, and larger carbon footprints; these are just some of the downsides of using non-organic, chemically-treated face wipes. Towels are a basic everyday necessity, so it’s a no brainer that it should be effective and long-lasting. If you find yourself constantly re-purchasing towels, then it might be time to swap them with organic cotton ones. The Akamuti organic cotton flannels are unbleached, undyed, and are made to be gentle on the skin. These are just some of the sustainable product swaps that Beauty Binge has.
