Get Pretty With Planet-Friendly Beauty Products
An environmental consultant offers tips on how to go green with your beauty routine.
When it comes to saving the earth, little things mean a lot, says Elizabeth Rogers, an environmental consultant based in Venice, California, a mom, and the author of the best-seller The Green Book (Three Rivers Press, $14, amazon.com). Even greening up your beauty regimen can be a snap “if you make small shifts in your daily life,” she says. She uses carefully selected products that make her look beautiful and benefit the earth. Low on packaging and high on performance, these items cost the same as her former, nonnatural favorites. “You can’t really tell the difference,” Rogers says. Except that they let you look good while doing good―and that’s no small thing.
