If youโ€™re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒปโœจ
.
Every 3 months, youโ€™ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep ๐Ÿ“ฆ
.
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
.
๐ŸŒผ you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s cheaper than buying each product on their own โ€” you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where itโ€™s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
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.
๐ŸŒผ do good while looking good โ€” 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 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

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

    I would not recommend NAK (No Animals Killed).

    They ended up not giving me shoes I had purchased, and taking my money (well over 300 pounds).

    There are many of us with hard to fit feet, such as a wide or narrow width who shouldn’t have to trade no cruelty to animals to cruelty to our own feet. Can’t buy vegan shoes until vegan shoes are made to fit our feet. And yes, Barbara, I agree, not all of us can or will spend several hundred dollars or more on a pair of shoes. Thanks!

    What about vegans who don’t have that kind of money for shoes????

โ€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
