Revamp your beauty routine with these plastic-reducing products

Clean beauty is the latest (and dare we say, greatest?) trend taking the beauty industry by storm, and it goes without saying that the team at terra20 is here for it. Still, we can’t help but notice that talk stops at product ingredients when there’s another elephant in the room: the plastic our products come in.

We shudder to think about how many plastic containers we go through every year as we cycle through our beauty products. The most recent data available indicates that the beauty industry is responsible for producing 120 billion units of plastic packaging every year—most of which ends up swimming in our oceans. And though we’re tempted to think we’re doing our part by cleaning out each container and recycling it after use, do any of us really know where that packaging goes after it leaves the house?

As it turns out, Canada only actually recycles 9% of its plastic. The rest is moved to landfills or incinerators along with regular garbage.

Needless to say, it’s time to take clean beauty to the next level. Thankfully, overhauling your makeup collection isn’t hard. Here are five must-have plastic-reducing beauty and self-care products to help you make the switch.

This lip balm is all-natural in every way—from its organic ingredient list featuring sunflower seed oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, and lemon and ginger essential oils, to its packaging made of 100% recycled paper cardboard (and ZERO plastic!).

This coloured creme stands out for two reasons. For one, its gentle pigments serve to highlight your cheeks and lips in a dewy, natural glow that leaves you looking (and feeling) awake and refreshed. Secondly, each shade comes in a gorgeous bamboo compact, so ditching your other plastic-wrapped products is easy and stylish.

Want a better life? Just think pink—and, in this case, plastic-free. Jack59’s Energize shampoo bar is a dream come true for dry, over-processed hair, combining tons of antioxidants with essential fatty acids and vitamins C and E for a lustrous shine. Dry, damaged locks become soft and rejuvenated.

Are you following the curly girl method? This shampoo contains curly girl-approved ingredients, so it’s perfect for all hair types! The bar also lasts for 80+ washes, without a single gram going to waste.

Beauty gurus have long said that self-care starts with the skin, and they couldn’t be more right. Satya’s steroid- and fragrance-free anti-inflammatory moisturizer is perfect for counteracting irritation caused by eczema, psoriasis, burns and rashes. Plus, by using Satya’s refill pouch, you’re cutting down on the production of unnecessary and excess packaging and waste. Go, you!

The ecoBODY Fragrance-Free Lotion is made with natural, plant-based ingredients, so it’s great for all skin types (including sensitive skin). But that’s not the only great thing about this product. At terra20, we believe in working together in small ways to implement big, positive changes—and it starts with something as simple as getting your ecobar lotion in one of our reusable bottles. Whenever you run out, simply bring your bottle back into one of our terra20 stores for a refill, and end the plastic waste cycle.

Sold out

Our shelves are stocked full of sustainable, environmentally sound products, from clean ingredients to reusable packaging (when a product comes with packaging at all!). In this way, we’re helping you help the environment—and look and feel great doing it.
