Why I started Zero Waste Pretty

A lot of the makeup, skincare and toiletries we use are aimed at making us look and feel better about ourselves–at a cost to the environment. I was inspired by Instagram (what else) and blogs about the minimalist and zero-waste lifestyle to take some steps towards this on my own. I found it difficult to find the bulk bins etc. that are more prevalent in the US, and decided to try and source them on my own.

On this site you’ll find:

Experiments: I try cycling to work, eating no sugar for a month, drinking a gallon of water for a month, no shopping, decluttering, and minimalism.

Tips: On how to be more zero waste and sustainable

Product Options: Sustainable product links. I don’t get a cut or anything, but these are reusable options that could replace your current choices.
