3 ways to Green Your Lotion
Conventional lotions contain petroleum-based chemicals that pollute the air and water during manufacture and disposal, and may pose health problems to users. Lotions made with certified natural, plant-based, and organic ingredients keep those nasty chems off of your skin and out of the environment. To up your green impact, also look for cruelty-free products that are not tested on animals, and choose lotions in recycled or minimal packaging.
Conventional lotions rely on petroleum-derived ingredients that contaminate the environment and threaten human health. Instead, opt for lotions made with certified natural, plant-based, and organic ingredients, as well as those that are cruelty-free.
Your favorite lotion likely comes in varied sizes. Choose the largest one to reduce the amount of packaging your moisturizing requires.
Many lotions come in recycled bottles, which use fewer resources during manufacture and create less solid waste.
