5 ways to help make your beauty routine more eco-friendly

It’s Earth Month! Let’s honor our planet by adding more sustainable beauty products and practices into our daily routine. Remember: Even little steps can add up and make a big difference. Here are 5 tips to inspire your eco-beauty journey.

1) Bring us your empties.

Done with that mascara? Bring it to The Beauty Dropoff™ at Ulta Beauty. Thanks to our partnership with Pact Collective, you can conveniently help close the loop on hard-to-recycle beauty packaging. Learn more here.

2) Shop our Conscious Beauty brands with Sustainable Packaging.

Through Conscious Beauty at Ulta Beauty®, we celebrate brands that make efforts to improve packaging sustainability. To qualify, at least 50% of a brand’s total packaging, by weight, must be recyclable, refillable or made from recycled or bio-sourced materials. Some favorites to explore: Sol de Janeiro, Bondi Boost and Estée Lauder. Learn more about Conscious Beauty’s Sustainable Packaging pillar here.

3) Bring your own bag!

When shopping in person, it’s always a good idea to bring your own reusable bag to prevent plastic and paper waste. If you drive, stash some cute, colorful totes in your trunk, so you’re always prepared. If you walk or take public transit (an eco-friendly move!), hang some totes on a hook near your front door as a reminder to bring them with you. We’re partial to this beauty right here.

4) Consider solid and bar options

Bar shampoos, conditioners, soaps and more have come a long way. Many are just as luxurious and effective as other bottled-up liquid versions. Not only do solid formulas significantly reduce packaging waste, but they also last much longer, lessening your overall beauty footprint. It’s a solid choice!

5) Opt for multi-taskers.

Time-saving, budget-friendly, planet-friendly and on trend! Reach for multi-tasking sticks, balms, sprays and creams that do the job of many (and eliminate the waste of many) in one. Here are some that we love.

Ready for an eco-overhaul of your beauty routine? Hop over to Ulta Beauty and fill that reusable tote with more sustainable beauty faves.

Happy Earth Month!
