Spring cleaning. Ug.

Every spring, I tell myself I’m going to clean the house like I’m going to move.

Then I do something more fun.

Anything is more fun… but I’m slowly making progress. When I made the #switchtosafer in my bathroom, I cleaned out all the half used products that I discovered not only did I not like them enough to use them originally, they were full of unregulated and potentially harmful ingredients.

Now, everything in my bathroom has a purpose. It comes in chic, sustainable packaging. It’s been tested for safety. It’s the one room in my house I feel good about every time I walk into it.

Better Beauty Vermont- Why stop at products? Beautycounter also goes to great lengths to choose the right product packaging. We don't allow polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and bisphenol A (BPA) and opt for glass, paper, or safer plastic materialsBetter Beauty Vemont- Beautycounter third-party tests each batch of color cosmetics for heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury, and spot check finished products, always striving for zero or non-detectable limitsBetter Beauty Vermont- Beautycounter selects the best ingredients that meet our high standards to create high-performing products, while prohibiting 1,500 harmful or questionable ingredients on The Never ListBetter Beauty Vermont- When Beautycounter is considering new ingredients for products, we screen every single one for information on specific hazards like cancer, developmental toxicity, hormone disruption, and infertility

Our choices matter. Throwing stuff out can be hard, and I usually feel guilty adding to the landfill, but I’m convinced that when I get a handle on my current situation, my impact will be less going forward. The choices I make today will make a difference tomorrow.

What choices are you making now that will matter tomorrow?
