Plastic Free Beauty
Posted on May 27 2019
Over the past 35 years, plastic packaging has rapidly made its way into every aspect of our lives. It is cheap to produce & keeps products fresh. Unfortunately the impact of this has caught up with our planet which is no longer able to sustain our use. There are huge floating islands of plastic in the ocean & micro-plastics are now appearing in our food chain. It estimated that if we don't change our ways, the damaged will be irreversible in the next 12 years.
New Zealand is on the forefront of natural beauty, having so many amazing natural ingredients to use on our doorstep. It is really exciting to see so many young emerging brands making skincare products that are good for the environment & actually work too. A lot of these artisans are looking to the past to our grandparents era to use the medicinal properties of what nature has provided us with. And to walk the talk, they are using gorgeous natural recycled & reusable packaging & plant based dyes to help save the planet!
