How Beauty Businesses Can Go Eco-Friendly In 2019

From trapping and endangering sea life to making its way into the food chain, the overuse of plastic is a growing problem with far-reaching consequences. Environmental experts agree that plastic pollution is becoming an increasingly urgent concern and the beauty industry is a principal contributor to this pollution.

The beauty industry has created 120.8 billion units of packaging the recent years, 40% of which was made from rigid plastic. Now, the beauty industry is keen on reducing the impact of plastic pollution, with new eco-friendly packaging strategies. Below are the few ways to go eco-friendly in your beauty business.

No-packaging

The easiest way to scale down your plastic use in your beauty business is simply to go packaging free.  There has been a huge increase in the purchase of products that don't use packaging at all. When it comes to shampoos and soaps, many brands have made package-free the new trend. Even local grocery stores now offer package-free soaps.

Glass Packaging

Another easy way to reduce plastic use is to opt for glass packaging. The use of glass jar for packaging of your beauty products means that the containers can either be recycled or will be broken down over time. Not only glass packaging looks beautiful, but it’s also better for the marine habitat. Many famous brands such as Tata Harper, Kypris Beauty, Tammy Fender and many more have both all-natural ingredients and sustainable packaging.

Refillable beauty packages

As consumers increasingly demand products and packaging with sustainable profiles, refillable packaging seems like the ideal solution. Refillable beauty packages have great potential for companies looking to improve their green credentials. Many brands are now offering chic and refillable packaging. You can reduce the environmental footprint and plastic pollution generally associated with cosmetics, by simply offering a refill packaging to your customers. 

Biodegradable packaging

Package-free products are obviously the best option, but when those can’t be done for every product. Best alternative to a package-free product is to use biodegradable materials for packaging. You can use woods such as bamboo or other materials like cardboard. These materials help to ensure the product is plastic-free and will easily break down over time.

Plantable Packaging

Plantable Packaging doesn’t mean packaging for plants and flowers that can be planted and slowly turns into compost. These are a packaged product, which incorporates seeds and allows the packaging to be buried in the soil and disintegrate while flowers or herbs are flourishing. Plantable packaging is basically a paper-based substance embedded with seeds. Once you open your product, the packaging can then be planted to grow herbs, flowers, or vegetables.
