Most beauty products come in plastic bottles, jars, or tubes that can’t be recycled. And even if they can, chances are they have caps and pumps that will last indefinitely in a mountain of trash. No matter how pure the formula is, it’s not eco-friendly if it comes in single-use plastic. Only containers with 1 and 2 inside the recycle arrows stand a chance of being recycled.

The good news is, there are entire brands designed with you and the planet in mind. These leading edge products are formulated with pure ingredients, and they are packaged to significantly reduce or eliminate plastic waste.

The brands we love most enhance beauty by supporting the health behind it. In other words, they don’t just mask what’s underneath. They nourish it. They also support the health and beauty of our planet. All are premium products in recyclable, refillable, and biodegradable packaging. 

Choose freely from this collection knowing that you are doing a truly beautiful thing. We will continue to add to our shop as we make new discoveries. So keep coming back for more.


TreStique claims to be the first-ever, zero-waste, refillable cosmetics system. Although they use plastic, none of it is disposable. Every product is designed to buy once and refill forever.

Sprout has gone beyond plastic-free. They claim to make the world’s first plantable makeup.

These sharpen well in an electric sharpener, without breaking the color core. When the pencils are too short to sharpen you can plant them and grow wildflowers. Seeds are in the biodegradable end tips.

All Sprout pencils and packaging are either Cradle to Cradle or FSC certified.  Every time a tree is harvested, another one is planted.
