Refill Revolution: This is a great way to make your beauty routine more sustainable

What seemed like an impossible task for us – the search for cosmetics in more sustainable packaging, is slowly becoming a reality lately. In addition to the use of cardboard, paper or glass containers or recycled plastic, cosmetics companies are increasingly deciding to refill or refill the original packaging.

It is well known that the beauty industry is one of the biggest “criminals” in terms of the accumulation of plastic waste: from various containers – bottles, jars and tubes, from plastic boxes or wrapped in cellophane to accessories such as applicator creams. – Our products have a higher level of personal care than bulky containers, most of which end up in waste (according to Zero Vaste Europe, we are dealing with around 120 billion packages that are discarded every year).

The advantage of recharging over recycling

However, recycling is not always as easy as you might think, even in countries where recycling systems work perfectly, even less so in countries where this is not the case. Throwing an empty bottle of shampoo into a special recycling bin seems like a quick and easy solution, but it’s not that easy. Unfortunately, the effect is much smaller than you think. Research shows that only nine percent of the plastics produced are recycled worldwide!

But what if we could stop throwing away empty cosmetic bottles?

The most important advantage of filling containers is the reduction in the amount of plastic produced. And there’s another bonus to consider, as it directly affects your budget: the supplement is usually cheaper than the initially packaged product.

But in any case, this is a trend that is worth protecting and testing.

Serbian where can you get refill products?

So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange Bodywork he opened filling areas in his stores. How does it work? If you choose an aluminum bottle in the store, ask staff to fill it with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, or liquid hand soap. When the product runs out, wash the bottle, dry it and take it back to the refill station. Don’t throw away the bucket!

There are also brands that sell refill products that we pour into the original bottle. Filling products can be packaged in plastic containers, but still in one that contains less plastic than the original packaging. And that, of course, is a change.
