Here at Jersey Beauty Company, we aren’t just passionate about skin care but we are also super passionate about the future of our beautiful planet. We accept that things need to change to reduce the amount of waste we create from single use products. We know that we can’t change the world overnight but we believe that small changes can have a big impact.
We have been busy finding simple everyday swaps that you can make, to take steps towards a more eco-friendly way of living.
Did you know, simple eco-friendly swaps are easier than you think? Often, it’s simply a case of replacing an old routine with a new one. We have become so used to using something and throwing it away. Whilst it might be gone from our lives, the packaging and plastic bottles stay around for a very long time. As the world’s population grows, so does the amount of rubbish we produce.
We admit that plastic is an incredibly useful material but because it is meant for durability, it is not biodegradable and it stays around for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, only 9% of the plastic produced every year gets recycled; the majority ends up in landfills or in the environment. Put simply, plastic pollution has begun to negatively impact the natural environment and create problems for plants, wildlife, and even the human population.
Unfortunately there is no single magic bullet that can fix the problem but if everyone makes simple changes, easy swaps, progress will be made. Jersey Beauty Company is here to help you on your eco-friendly journey- remember a simple swap can make a big difference!
