There really are lot's of simple ways to create less waste. We can use natural products and the purest ingredients, but if our beauty routine remains unnecessarily wasteful then I don't think it can ever be truly green. I have been really inspired by lot's of zero waste blogs and books lately, but I will admit some of their suggestions take things a little too far, for example you won't be finding me grinding burnt almonds to make eye liner any time soon! I fully accept that I am never going to be a minimalist in my beauty routine but there are some simple changes I have implemented to reduce waste. Here are the swaps that I find the most helpful, they are easy and they are sustainable over time as well as being good for your pocket, because they should save money in the long run. Wasting less shouldn't make life more complicated, in fact the opposite is true!

Just before Christmas Tisserand relaunched their bath and body collection with slick new packaging and three gorgeous scents. It's no secret that I have a preference for aromatherapy brands and Tisserand combine years of expertise in essential oils with affordable price points. I have introduced Tisserand to some family members too and it has been a big hit!

Had you asked me pre baby if I would be up for using reusable menstrual products my answer would have undoubtedly been a resounding no. However having had two children in cloth nappies and having seen the wonderful benefits, when I was approached by Bloom and Nora to try their new range of cloth sanitary pads my mind was more than open to the idea. I actually started to look in to reusable menstrual products before I got pregnant with Baby Green, I had made so many other successful changes in my life that this seemed like a logical progression.

Although I like to shop in stores that make natural and organic their USP, these days you can find lot's of natural products in places that perhaps you wouldn't expect. I first discovered Latest in Beauty a few years ago and I like the concept. It's an online store that creates collections of beauty products so you can discover products from up and coming or well established brands. I don't often shop the pre-made collections as most of the time they are not exclusively "natural" or "green" but I have been a big fan of the "Build your own box" selection for some time and it has introduced me to some fabulous brands.

I am stealing this idea for a post from Fiona at the Beauty Shortlist, she recently wrote her 2017 beauty predictions (you can find that post here) and I loved what she had to say. If you don't know Fiona or the Beauty Shortlist awards, either as a beauty enthusiast or as a brand, then you should. Every year the Beauty Shortlist awards introduces me to at least one new fabulous brand I didn't know before. They are a must for anyone who is looking for niche brands that are a little bit different, although not entirely green, she does champion small green brands alongside the more mainstream which is fantastic.
