Earth Month 2020: Sustainable Beauty Tips

Earth Day is April 22, 2020!

Earth Day is April 22nd, but we will be celebrating all month long! As Earth Day approaches, now's a good time to think of little solutions to support a more eco-friendly lifestyle. We've rounded up a few sustainable beauty products and tips for a greener beauty routine. How are you practicing sustainability when it comes to your daily beauty rituals? Follow us on Instagram and share your favorite tips! 

1. When it comes to water, less is best! 

Here are a few ideas to help reduce your water usage: when you clean your face, instead of letting the water run as you splash your face – use a clean facial sponge or washcloth. Saturate it with water, turn off the tap, then use it to clean the product off your face. Not only do you save water, but you also get exfoliating benefits from the cloth. Double win! 

Another good way to reduce water usage is to spread out your hair washing days. Try these products to help extend your good hair days in between washing:

Rinseless Refresh Micellar Hair & Scalp Refresher 

We love this Aveda product! it's perfect for the gym and no-wash days because of the micellar technology which helps to instantly cleanse the scalp, refresh hair and texture with no-rinse required. The aroma is a mix of jasmine and certified organic mandarin, lemon, and ylang-ylang. 

Shampure Dry Shampoo

This is Aveda's original dry shampoo! Shampure Dry Shampoo is our ultimate no-wash day favorite. This non-aerosol dry shampoo mists out as a powder to revive hair, absorb excess oil and add texture. And of course, the aroma blend is Aveda's iconic Shampure (25 pure flower and plant essences).

2. Take time to read the labels

Learn more about the products you are putting on your skin. Don't just assume all products are safe. Learn more about the ingredients in your products and make better choices for your hair, skin and the planet! 

3. Liter Sized Products

When you can, purchase your favorite beauty products in liter sizes. You'll get more product and end up with less waste — Aveda liters save 20% per ounce and help save resources by using less packaging. Additionally, Aveda has a responsible approach to packaging their products. With every package Aveda develops, they are mindful of their environmental footprint and work to minimize packaging and maximize their use of recyclable and post-consumer recycled materials.

4. Use Multi-Use Products 

Using fewer products means less packaging, which means less waste. Look for multi-use products like the new Nutriplenish™ Multi-Use Hair Oil that can be used as a pre-treatment before shampooing, leave-in after washing or styling, or overnight treatment.
