Great tips for green grooming

Matt Berger Nov 25, 2010

Green eyeshadow, as awesome as it is, is probably not the best way to incorporate green in your cosmetics routine.  Here are seven ways to make getting clean and lovely a little easier on the earth.

  1. Create an environmentally friendly beauty routine
  2. Know your cosmetics
  3. Make your own cosmetics, art supplies, cleaning solutions, and dry-cleaning supplies
  4. Minimize use of disposable products
  5. And, for the more advanced green-groomer, buy washable and reusable female protection products
  6. Take a shower instead of a bath
  7. Pee in the shower!
