Why is sustainability so important? Every action we make contributes to our near (and far) future. If we live recklessly right now, there may be no Earth to live in soon enough. This is why we must take small steps to try and reduce our carbon footprint so that we, mother nature and the world can be healthier and stronger than ever. As the fashion and beauty industry takes a big toll, why not start with these refillable beauty products to lessen the carbon footprint?
