Here’s to all you folks who live alone and work alone during the lockdown - we’re certainly learning to appreciate the small things we take for granted in normal everyday life. Contact with others? That beats those new shiny shoes.
Plastic is both remarkably cheap and incredibly useful. But manufacturers have been tasked with finding reusable or compostable alternatives to just about everything we've come to rely on. Perhaps when our current plastic pegs break or wear out, we can try sustainable wood or bamboo pegs? I found pegs that are a sustainable alternative to plastic pegs, because the bamboo is biodegradable and the stainless steel springs don't add rust to your clothes.

That's ok - you're only human! But is it possible to still have a good skincare routine, yet look after the world around you? We think so, as long as we use less one-time-use plastic and environmentally unfriendly products, and make better choices. Particularly with city living, our skin produces a lot of oil and sebum if we're stressed, hormonal or just in a hot and polluted environment. That's why we're selling these paper-based oil reducing wipes for when you're on the go. We find they give a great matte look and create confidence.
Let's give each other the hope that the little changes we make can make a difference overall. If we all do something, it has to make a difference.
So was I... that's why we sell these cotton/bamboo makeup remover pads which can be washed and used again and again. We're really proud that the product has zero-plastic packaging - something we're working towards with all our products. There's a little plastic-polyester in the stitching, and we're working with our manufacturers to replace this with pure cotton - unfortunately for now it's what we use to make these pads super-long-lasting. Stay tuned! Use them to remove makeup, use toner or apply creams without having to repeatedly buy cotton pads packed in plastic. What's more - they're unbleached.
