My plastic-free beauty rituals

We have a nice waste sorting system in place at home. There are different bins for paper, plastic and glass, although a biodegradable waste bin is yet to come (as soon as the local authorities of Utrecht have small containers in stock again). But then I read an article about microbeads. Microbeads are tiny pieces of plastic in beauty products, such as body scrubs and facial cleansers, that we flush down our drains on a daily basis. Along with our good waste sorting intentions. Sewer systems are unable to filter out microbeads. And thus they end up in our marine food chain.
However, I am happy to inform you that there are plenty of beauty products without microbeads! You just have to know where to find them. With the app beat the microbead you can check whether your beauty products contain microbeads

I discovered that my beloved beauty products from one of my favourite brands are plastic-free! Thank you, Rituals! Since April 2015 all products from Rituals are microbead-free, plus, none of their products are tested on animals. Guess I will be buying all my beauty products from Rituals from now on.
