A Better Tomorrow Starts With Us
Welcome to the new and improved Hatten Cares blog (we’ve just shifted to WordPress)!
It’s been awhile since our last posting but now, we’re back =D
This month has been all about WOMEN with International Women’s Day celebrated on the 8th of March. Love how we females are now appreciated for our strength, patience and the multiple roles we play in society. Go sisterhood!
There is another role we women should be more active in though, and that is environmental awareness. This is an important global issue, and we can start by simply making small changes in our everyday makeup routine. Check this out:
TOP 5 ECO-FRIENDLY MAKEUP TIPS
Minimise waste by buying eyeliner pencils encased in wood instead of liquid liners in plastic containers. Wood shavings are biodegradable, most plastics are not.Try:
Elianto Ultra Define Eyeliner Pencil –> Waterproof + Exact Lining + Rich Colour
The average woman ingests more than four pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, so look for lip colour made from plant-derived or natural ingredients instead of synthetic oils or paraffin waxes. Try:
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm Range (Available at Watsons) –> 100% Natural!
There are eyeshadows and blushes available on the market now that feature refills to save money and waste. Check out:
Elianto‘s Eye Shadow Refill Palettes
Forget about sponges, cotton balls, cloths and brushes. Opt for rewashable, reusable natural sponges and cotton wash cloths instead. Disposables not only cost a lot more, but their packaging also takes up a lot of space in the land fill! Try:
Watsons Loofah Sponge -> Biodegradable and Affordable!
Buy in Bulk
Purchase your shampoos, lotions and soaps in large quantities. Not only are they cheaper per ounce, but less plastic goes into their manufacture.
Hurry, Watsons ‘WOW SALE’ ends 25th March 2013!
So girls, take that first step towards becoming more eco-friendly. Every little bit counts when it comes to protecting our precious planet.
