.
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:

๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.
๐ŸŒผ you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s a seasonal subscription so youโ€™ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.

โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ

โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
