Make the Switch to More Sustainable Beauty Products

Make the Switch to More Sustainable Beauty Products

Plastic, it seems everywhere I look there it is. It’s in my kitchen, in my car, and especially in my bathroom. As useful as it may seem, it’s overwhelming bad for the planet. In fact, according to a 2018 National Geographic article, only 9% of the 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic produced is actually recycled. This means most of the products we use end up in landfills or the oceans. So, what can we do to reduce our carbon footprint and plastic usage? For starters, we can switch to more sustainable beauty products.

If you think about, most of the plastic we use can be found in the kitchen and the bathroom. According to Teen Vogue, in 2010 the beauty industry produced 65.62 billion plastic packaging units and 76.8 billion plastic packaging units in 2017. It’s hard to imagine that in less than a decade the beauty industry was responsible for increasing plastic packing by 10 billion units.  

Thankfully, more consumers and brands are becoming aware of this plastic problem and actually doing something about it. Whether it’s recyclable, reusable or compostable, many brands are starting to produce more sustainable beauty products. One such brand is Plaine Products, a personal care brand focused on producing non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainable products.

After seeing firsthand the damage plastic was doing to the environment, sisters Lindsey and Alison Delaplaine knew they had to do something. They spent a year researching, creating, and testing out their new line of safe and non-toxic products, as well as developing their sustainable packaging.

Currently, Plaine Products offers hair and body care and face care products, available in both full and travel size. Not only do these sustainable beauty products come in reusable bottles, but they also are feature vegan, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, and biodegradable formulas.

Sustainable Beauty Products _ Body Wash and Lotion
How it Works

To start using Plaine Products, you first choose your scent and product type. Then, the brand will send your refillable bottles and pumps. When you start running low, you can order a refill or sign-up for their subscription service, so you never run out of your items. In fact, even their travel bottles are refillable and reusable.

When your bottles are empty, simply rinse them out and switch your pumps to the new bottles. Then, use the enclosed return label to send your empty bottles back to Plaine Products.

No more trips to the store to buy more plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion or face wash. No more ordering plastic bottles of bath and body products.

Plaine Products Face Wash

The brand was kind enough to send me their Rosemary, Mint & Vanilla body wash and lotion, as well as their face wash. I really like the fresh scent of the body wash and lotion. They don’t smell fake or full of chemicals. I also appreciate that their first ingredient is aloe vera, which is very soothing and hydrating. The face wash also has a nice citrus scent. It’s very light and refreshing, which is great for helping me wake up in the morning.  

Switching to more sustainable beauty products is getting easier and easier, especially thanks to brands like Plaine Products. Not only are they more conscientious of the packaging they use, but also of the formulations they create. We all want to look our best, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of the planet we call home.

Are you ready to make the switch to more sustainable beauty products?

Turn To Natural Products For Your Health

When it comes to our health and beauty, I prefer using natural products if at all possible. I have my son using natural deodorant and toothpaste already. I also have him using natural bath products. Since he doesn’t take traditional medicine, I use natural remedies as much as possible. I love using essential oils and an oil diffuser. Let us show you how easy it is to turn to natural products for your health!

CLR is a brand of cleaning products that have been around for many years. I used to use a CLR cleaning product many years ago, though I don’t know when exactly I moved away from using it. Trying new products when it comes to cleaning my home is always interesting; so I guess that’s why, since there are always new and exciting products hitting the market.

But, I’m firmly back on the CLR train. Not only for the Calcium, Lime, and Rust cleaner but also for another product, CLR Stain Magnet carpet cleaner, that I hadn’t even heard about yet. Stay tuned to hear about that.
