Zero Waste Beauty Brands to Try in India

zero waste beauty brands

The Zero Waste movement is gaining momentum all over the world and for the right reasons. We need to stop plastic pollution by reducing the use of single-use plastics on a day-to-day basis.

Although a small part, but plastic waste generated from the beauty industry needs to be addressed. We discard countless tubes and lotion bottles in the trash every year, most of which go unrecycled. All this waste generated could be reduced by using more sustainable, biodegradable packaging options.

DIY products are the most efficient way to minimize waste from your routine, but it may not be a possible option for everyone due to lack of time and knowledge.

In such a case, you have to rely on sustainable brands in the market that cater to your needs. Below are 5 such brands that will help you minimize plastic waste from your personal care routine.

Zero Waste Beauty Brands in India

1. Bare Necessities

And as a cherry on top, they even take back empty containers and offer a discount on your next order.
