In the UK we dispose of more than 26 million tonnes of paper, glass, plastic, wood, food, metal, clothing, electronics and other refuse annually. The problem of managing mountains of waste may seem overwhelming, but experts note there are easy ways for consumers to make a difference every day.
I came across this really lovely vegan friendly company recently called UpCircle Beauty
Each of the products in their range is sourced from by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. In recent years there has been a dramatic rise of natural, then organic, then vegan and cruelty-free beauty, but UpCircle Beauty
believe circular / by-product beauty will be the next step –and not many can disagree with that
They have many products in their range including cleansers, moisturisers, serums, exfoliants, scrubs soaps etc. I was able to try a few o their products and was pleased with the results. This is because I have really sensitive skin so I am always cautious what I use.
The products I tried are as follows:
This face scrub didn't disappoint as it left my face feeling so soft and smooth. It didn't leave me with that tight and dry feeling that some face scrubs leave you with. I would definitely get this face scrub again.
I am not able to use any old soap so this was a real treat. I must say the smell is a bit Christmassy for me but hey who doesn’t love Christmas. It is a little pricy but it’s worth it as it has all of the following attributes:
I have saved the pamper kit, which has samples of the full UpCircle face range for when I next travel. However it make a great mini gift set and perfect for those ethical and cruelty free stocking fillers. www.UpCircleBeauty.com
I enjoyed trying this range of ethical and sustainable beauty products. I love the whole up cycling element to this range too. Sustainability starts with you and me, because the smallest change you make in your own home or office can have a huge effect further up the chain. Simply by buying the right products such as those in the UpCircle range you can help you and your family help the environment through these purchases.
