Happy Earth Day: My Green Beauty Go-Tos

Being a mother, I care about the future of our earth even more than before I became a parent. That’s why I try to do my part to help preserve our wonderful planet by making a conscious effort to purchase eco-friendly products. If we don’t do our best to keep our resources bountiful, we’re bound for environmental disaster.

From biodegradable shower gel to cruelty-free cosmetics brushes to all-natural lip gloss packaged in easily recyclable plastic, here are a few of my fave green go-tos:
