Plastic Free Beauty Day Giveaway
Did you know that, if we do nothing, by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic in them than fish? And we’re not just talking discarded bottles and containers. Microplastics are also a huge problem! Microplastics are tiny plastic particles (smaller than 5mm) that are not biodegradable and are almost impossible to remove from our oceans. They can flow straight into the sea from our drains and be consumed by marine life. Some key microplastic culprits are body washes, cosmetics and nylon and polyester clothes.
On 21st July 2017 the British government announced a ban on microbeads in cosmetics which took effect on the 30th June the following year. This was a fantastic step in the right direction but the term ‘microplastics’ also applies to liquid plastics that are still used in some cosmetics. These are just as polluting and just as non-biodegradable as the little gritty microbeads.
That’s why, we’re proud to team-up with Weleda, a world leading manufacturer of holistic natural cosmetics, this Plastic Free Beauty Day.
Weleda is dedicated to protecting and respecting the environment and every one of their natural and organic cosmetics is NATRUE certified. All their formulations are certified plastic free with no hidden plastics – yay! In its commitment to continually improving its packaging, Weleda has already increased the percentage of post-consumer recycled materials in its packaging to 40% and is working towards a goal for 2022 that 65% of Weleda packaging will be made from recycled plastic or bioplastic, with a long-term goal of zero waste. You can find out more about Weleda, their commitment to sustainability and their beautiful range of products, by visiting their website.
To celebrate Plastic Free Beauty Day, we are giving you the chance to win a bundle of Weleda and Bloom & planet-friendly treats worth £200! Check them out below.
