1. Conscious consumer
Use your power as a consumer to make mindful decisions, opt for less packaging, cleaner ingredients and don’t be afraid to ask companies where their products come from.
2. Plastic-free periods
The average woman will use 10,000 tampons in her lifetime. Take the plunge and ditch plastic by switching to period underwear or a menstrual cup. I found it easiest to transition over a couple of periods and now I could never go back!
3. Make long-term switches
Break-up with single-use items like make-up wipes and cotton swabs and opt for long term solutions like reusable make-up wipes.
4. Used by
Did you know that on the back of all of your make-up is a guideline on how long you should use a product after opening it before you discard it? This is called a Period After Opening
(PAO) symbol and in it is a number followed by an M. I.e 3M means you should stop using the product 3 months after opening it. These guidelines were created as makeup is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and bugs, gross!
5. Revolutionise your beauty routine with the Think Dirty app
Simply scan a beauty product and find out if the ingredients are really what they say they are using their Dirty Meter. Get clean.
