If you’re like us then you probably have a whole skin care routine down by now and it involves a lot of empties or near-empty bottles that follow! We totally understand that it’s easy to simply just throw these into the trash and move on to the new stuff!
DON'T DO IT! Conscious Beauty means being conscious not only to your skin but also to the environment. Conscious beauty is being confident that beauty lies inside and out. Most bottles can be recycled but what's even better is that they can be repurposed into something useful.
Instead, turn beautiful bottles into DIY planters.
These Golden Froth
containers and other skincare bottles make beautiful vases for single flowers or money plants. Simply wash them out with warm water and soap to make sure that they’re free of any skin care product. Next, fill the bottle with room temperature water and place your flower or plant into the re-purposed vase.
For instance, If you're someone who enjoys an indoor herb garden, you can place chives, scallions, basils, or whatever herb floats your boat. Super fun but most importantly, super easy!
Remember to cut the stems as needed and make sure they're at a height that makes you happy.
To sum it all up, DIY recycling projects are more than just fun. Upcycling and recycling your skin care empties may not feel like much but in reality, it can have a huge impact on reducing your carbon footprint and landfill waste.
Making the world a cleaner and happier place starts with conscious beauty.
