Aside from skipping plastic straws and cups, transitioning to a minimal-waste beauty routine can help you reduce your carbon footprint. Start with small changes, such as switching from disposable cotton pads to their reusable and washable counterparts. This way, not only are you limiting your beauty-related trash, you're also saving cash by not needing to repurchase so often!

Here's a list of stores and brands that carry reusable cotton pads locally, so you can swipe your toners and micellar waters without the green guilt:

Green Pads

Add color to your skincare routine with Green Pads' cotton rounds made out of repurposed printed fabric. While you're at it, you can shop their other eco-friendly and organic items online, too.

Mimi and Me Greentools

These face pads are made out of terry cloth, so they're very soft to the touch. One set contains a total of 12 cotton rounds that are packaged in a travel-friendly pouch.
