If you’re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! 💄🌻✨
.
Every 3 months, you’ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep 📦
.
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
.
🌼 you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
🌼 it’s cheaper than buying each product on their own — you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where it’s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
🌼 in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, they’re also natural and non-toxic.
🌼 you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
🌼 it’s a seasonal subscription so you’ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
🌼 do good while looking good — partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.

Please read till the end 🌿 I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials 🧽 They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans ⭐️ They were also made in Canada 🇨🇦 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. 🌱 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! 😔 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! 😬 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! 🌿

🌻 What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?
