5 simple ways to reduce the environmental impact of your skincare product!
Try, when possible, to order products in packs of 2 or 3. Not only will you save money (shipping fees + a boOnus of 4 or 9 euros) but you will also reduce the environmental impact of your products by having fewer deliveries.
Why? The experts who carried out an investigation on the environmental impact of oOlution found that shipping had a significant environmental impact on the life cycle of a product. To reduce this impact, it was necessary to reduce the volume of shipments and so we had boxes custom made according to the size of our products. It is also better to ship as many packages as possible at the same time, so we introduced a boOnus: 4 euros for every pack of two products ordered and 9 euros for every pack of 3 products ordered!
If you can pick up your package at a Pick-up Point without using your car, it is much better to choose this method of shipment. If you cannot reach a Relay Point without using your car, it is better to have your package shipped directly to your home address. The Mondial Relay delivery to parcel shops is available in Belgium; Germany, Luxembourg, UK, Spain, Austria, Italy, and Portugal.
Why? During the analysis of the environmental impacts of all the products throughout their life cycle, our eco-conception experts took into account shipment. While studying the different possibilities and the different types of transportation, we were able to determine the shipment type that has the least impact on the environment according to different situations.
Whether it's with soap or gel, it's better to clean your face with cold water. It stimulates blood micro-circulation for a nice complexion and it saves energy, as there's no need to heat water.
Why? Heating water while you wash your face uses a lot of energy over the course of a product's lifetime.
4. Makeup Removal
Try to avoid using cotton pads or disposable wipes. Instead, try reusable, washable wipes made of plants (organic cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, eucalyptus..)
Why? Cotton pads are not the best for your skin, especially if it's sensitive. Furthermore, making conventional cotton (non-organic) is the process that consumes the most pesticides in the world. The less waste we produce, the better the situation for our world-wide biodiversity.
Discard your empty bottles in the recycling bin, (or post them back to us free in the envelope you receive with your order, and we'll do it for you!).
Why? Contrary to almost all existent bottle pumps, oO's skincare bottles do not have a metal spring so they are really 100% recyclable. With a bottle pump made of 100% recyclable plastic and a well-established recycling system, there are no excuses!
There you goO! With these 5 actions, you can lessen the environmental impact of your beauty routine. Isn't that awesoOme?
