Sustainable Beauty Brands Making A Zero Waste Routine Possible
While the organic skin care market has been doing pretty well, I haven't been excited about a lot of their packaging. It's not that they didn't care about this aspect of their business, but there wasn't a collective conscious around the dangers of single-use plastics and consumers weren't asking for plastic-free and zero waste products so brands weren't providing them.
Thankfully, that is changing, and here are some of the brands that are making it a part of their mission to have a zero waste future.
Katari Beauty brings forth Mediterranean single-ingredient, ancient beauty staples sourced from artisans who have been perfecting their craft for countless generations. All their ingredients are packaged in beautiful re-fillable glass bottles.
"I see us being a part of a future of zero waste, like it was when I was a child. I imagine a future where Katari lovers can refill their bottles whenever they need to do so. We currently have a refill bar in Ontario, Canada called Re:mind Wellness, and another in Charleston, South Carolina called Treehouse Soul Skin Spa.
