Why It Matters

Single-use health and beauty products don't make sense — you end up spending more money and trashing them after one use.

Benefits for You

You can usually find reusable alternatives for single-use products at similar prices, so say goodbye to guilt and hello to savings.

Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    Invest in high-quality reusables, like safety razors. You’ll throw fewer in the trash, and it’ll be cheaper in the long run.

  • What Comes Next

    Turn your old cotton towels or shirts into reusable makeup wipes. Soak cut-up strips of the fabric in a cup of water with a teaspoon of olive oil and a quarter-teaspoon of Castile soap.
