Trying to go plastic free? It’s easy to focus on the bigger products in your life, but we’ve found that making small changes, like switching your regular cosmetics for plastic free toiletries, can have a huge impact on the amount of rubbish you create. Small plastic cosmetics containers can be difficult to recycle thanks to the residues they carry, so around 95% head straight to the landfill where they will take nearly 1,000 years to break down. A lot of things are likely to change in the next 1,000 years, but your personal plastic mountain will be still be sitting around in the landfill, or worse, polluting the oceans and marine habitats. That’s a pretty good reason to go plastic free wherever possible.
Like most zero waste products, this lip balm is designed to create a minimum amount of rubbish once you’ve used it for its original purposes. The tin that contains this lip balm can easily be reused as a general container. You could even try making your own plastic free toiletries and cosmetics at home.
