How many Americans use Deodorant and Antiperspirant Each Year?
What is our beauty routine doing to our planet?
1. Deodorant made from recycled material reduces the demand for plastic
Looking for an effective way to reduce your plastic use? It’s simple, don’t use it! Use paper based or recycled packaging whenever possible. This goes for your deodorant as well. Using Cleo+Coco Zero-Waste Deodorant ensures you are limiting your plastic use while still receiving the benefits of an effective, natural deodorant. This will help reduce commercial demand for plastic products and will help leave fossil fuels in the ground.
2. Plastic free deodorant is better for your skin and the planet
The chemicals in plastic alone should be enough to steer you in the direction of using plastic-free products. They are toxic and detrimental to the human body. Chemicals like cadmium and mercury can be found in some forms of plastics – both having toxins that can cause cancers, various disabilities and immune system problems. If you do choose to use plastic, make sure to choose ones that are BPA free.
3. Plastic-free means less plastic in landfills
Unfortunately, plastic doesn't break down naturally when placed in a landfill. It just accumulates overtime, seeping into the earth. To help save our planet, take a small step to ensure you’re using plastic free products whenever you can.
4. A simple plastic free swap makes a big impact
Using zero-waste personal care products may feel daunting today, but we are proud to be making it possible for tomorrow. Eliminating the amount of waste piling up in landfills across the world can be done by beginning to go plastic free. Chemicals and toxic substances are released from the trash and seep into the soil. This increases the rate of pollution in our world and could lead to harmful events that affect everyone, and will continue to do so until we are all plastic-free.
