Zero-Waste Beauty DIY

If you're like me, your bathroom is littered with cosmetic and personal care bottles. Unfortunately, our desire to look (and smell) groomed to socially acceptable standards is not without its environmental consequences. The dozens of bottles and tubs adorning our bathroom shelves are made of increasingly scarce resources, and despite our best intentions, many of them are destined for landfills. One way to decrease the amount of trash you produce with packaging and product is to concoct your products at home using natural ingredients. Most of the ingredients can be found in your home! You'll find that turning to DIY is not just safer, but also it's cheaper. It is also allows you to know exactly what is in your products!
