Lipsticks: A girl’s best friend

Sometimes, lipstick can make you confident and ready to rock your day. It brightens your face and probably demonstrates your personality and gout. However, every year, makeup brands produce a massive amount of waste that can be recycled, mostly coming from its packaging. And we can do this better!

When talking about becoming zero waste or more environmentally friendly, often or not, people will do some soul – researching around their kitchen, bathroom to see what can be replaced with more eco-friendly alternatives. Therefore, people often miss out an Easter egg called lipsticks. I am sure that most girls own at least 2 to 3 lipsticks and with some, this number can time 10 or 20. Yes, they are gorgeous; they make you feel confident and pretty in everyone’s eyes and your own eyes. But under the scope of eco-friendly avid, they are little trash litter. Majority of cases, those commercial lipsticks can be recycled even when you try to put them in the recycle bin, they are still eventually destined for landfill. Believe me or not, around one billion lipsticks casings are thrown away every year, ending their life in the landfill, and have to wait for another few hundred years to degrade completely. 

What can we do better?
