If you are increasingly concerned about the environmental problems that our planet is facing and you would like to do your part into trying to protect it, you need to read this article. You will find out more about how you can do your part and convince friends and family to follow your example. Small gestures can make a huge difference and we are ready to educate you on this subject.
So, what small gesture can you do in your everyday life that can make a huge difference for the planet? Well, you probably have a daily beauty routine. Do you use cruelty-free cosmetics and makeup or do you use products released by companies that do animal testing? You probably use products that have gone through animal testing. Well, switch to a cruelty-free beauty routine and the world will thank you! How can such a small gesture make such a big difference? Here is how.
First of all, cruelty-free cosmetics and makeup use less chemicals. You won’t find parabens or sulfates or any other type of chemicals in their formula. This means that these products are safer for your skin and they also help reduce the use of chemicals that are harmful to our planet. Second of all, if you want to go green but you don’t know how to begin doing this, opting for cruelty-free products is a perfect way to start. These products are made of more sustainable ingredients and materials and once you learn how to shop for the ones that truly are cruelty-free, you can easier introduce green products into other aspects of your life. We are not going to lie to you: the cruelty-free cosmetics market is more reduced than the market of products that have gone through animal testing but there still are plenty of items to choose from. Last but not least, choosing cruelty-free products will help you save the lives of thousands of animals. Did you know that over 100 million animals are used in animal testing every single year, in spite of the efforts made by NGOs and famous people to reduce this number? And the worst about this number is that it is not made of rats and mice only; rabbits, cats, dogs and even monkeys are also used for animal testing, which is simply cruel.
I think that you now have a much better understanding of how big of a difference switching to cruelty-free products can make. A lot of people have already done this and they say that in addition to the great feeling that they get for doing something good for our planet, they skin looks much better and they also save a lot of money. Yes, this is true: cruelty-free products are much cheaper than cosmetics that go through animal testing processes. This is because the average cost per year for a dog used for animal testing is around $9,000. This is clearly a factor that raises the production costs for cosmetics and makeup that have gone through an animal testing process.
