If you’re vegan and new to the zero-waste lifestyle it can be a bit disheartening to discover that many eco-friendly and zero waste products contain ingredients derived from animals. With animal agriculture in the spotlight as one of the leading causes of climate change, it would seem that sustainable brands would be catching on and making the switch to plant-based products.
So why is it that every time you pick up a zero waste skincare product they always seem to contain animal products?
While the answer isn’t an easy one, it mostly boils down to the mindset that organic and natural equals sustainability even though factory farming is considered one of the most wasteful industries on Earth.
Despite the debate over what truly makes a product sustainable, plant-based and plastic-free beauty products do exist —so yes, you can have your (vegan) cake and eat it too!

Vegan & Zero Waste Soaps
We’ve come a long way with zero waste beauty products and many brands are now offering everything from reusable face wipes made from organic cotton to moisturizer in refillable glass bottles yet somehow zero waste vegans are still left with soaps containing goat’s milk, lanolin, and animal-based glycerin.
