Eco-friendly Beauty Swaps

Eco-friendly beauty swaps that save you money and save the planet like bamboo toothbrushes, safety razors, shampoo bars, and more. If you ever wondered "is eco-friendly more expensive" this blog will help you see the true cost and savings with switching to more sustainable products (and some are even on Amazon!)

I even shared on my instagram that I started affirming "The Universe rewards me for helping the planet" because I have saved so much money making the switch and my skin & hair have never been healthier!

Just a friendly reminder, even though these swaps are more eco-friendly that doesn't mean you need to replace all your products today! As your current shampoos, conditioners, cleansers, etc run out, try one of these alternatives one by one and soon your whole vanity will be full of products better for the planet and you!
