This year I have a goal of making some changes to produce less waste. So far this has mainly meant consistently bringing reusable cups to Starbucks, which has definitely added up. Baby steps over here people.
I identified makeup remover wipes as another source of consistent waste in my life. Out of all of the things I am throwing in the trash on a daily basis, this was definitely low hanging fruit and I knew it would be an easy thing to change. Here is my new routine:
Step 1. Reusable cotton rounds.
I found these on Etsy from a shop called Marleys Monsters. These specific ones are 3″ Organic Bamboo Rounds. Once you are ready to wash them you can throw them in with your laundry, easy peasy.
Step 2 . Makeup Remover
This is the trickier step. I originally tried to make my own with witch hazel and coconut oil but it was very oily and hurt my eyes. Then I stumbled upon this natural makeup remover by Lola Jane Naturals. The ingredients are all things you have heard of, it works really well, doesn’t hurt my eyes and comes in a cute little glass bottle.
This new M.O. is a win: less waste, more natural ingredients, and it gets the job done. Stay tuned as I make more small changes to try and cut back on waste!
