Disposable cotton rounds are a huge part of our skin care routines, in fact the average woman will use over 90,000 of them in her lifetime. That's a lot of landfill.

But it’s more than a numbers game. We need to consider the type of cotton used to produce them. Non organic cotton production is responsible for a quarter of the world's insecticides and is a major source of environmental pollution. Cotton production is also notoriously bad in terms of water use. 

Once used, they’re not as harmless as they look. Turns out regular cotton rounds do not biodegrade due to the bleaching and mixing processes used to create them. 

So what can we do? 

Switch your disposable cotton rounds for a washable set (like our Forever Makeup Rounds, 8 for $21). 

Don’t be the average woman that throws 90,000 of these things into landfill. You’ll feel good, save money and reduce the amount of plastic packaging waste you produce. That’s a win, win, win.
