Go 'green' with natural makeup

Posted by Allison Paquette

Women looking to be more environmentally friendly should go green with their makeup bags by buying organic cosmetics.

Canwest News Service listed five simple steps which will help to change your makeup routine into a planet-friendly one.

It recommended reading the labels to check for harmful chemicals or better still, choosing natural cosmetics, 'especially organics, when you can', which is something celebrities such as Debra Messing and Tim Daly from the Sopranos also recommend.

The other tips from the news provider include reducing waste, which it says can be done in a variety of ways.

'Choose products with less packaging, or packaging made from recycled or recyclable materials. Reuse or recycle makeup containers. Bring your own reusable shopping bag,' the website states.

Its final tip is to learn more about the products you use and the company's policies whether it's recycling, animal testing or energy use, just having the knowledge can help you to make a difference.ADNFCR-2885-ID-19804043-ADNFCR
