Here is an eco-friendly tip on how to support new beauty and wellness brands, products, and initiatives that prioritize the planet. Do your research before you buy a new product and see which brands are going the extra distance to help preserve the planet. For instance, do they offer refillable packaging? It's also a good idea to shop locally so you can not only support the local economy but decrease air miles, which will reduce the carbon footprint. It is recommended you look for an official certification logo on the packaging to determine whether a product has legitimate eco credentials. There are some brands that label their products as “green” or “eco-friendly” although it’s not an official certification despite appearing like it from afar.

It provides a list of microplastics frequently found in personal care items that they have graded based on their environmental impact.
