Many of you know that I’m happily pursuing having a more sustainable life, one step at a time. ^_^ A large part of sustainability depends on using washable and reusable things in place of disposables so we’ve been reducing the amount of paper napkins, disposable diapers and menstrual pads, baby wipes, and other things that our family uses. Not only are reusables kinder to the environment, but using them also makes life a little more affordable, which is great because we only have one income and saving money is important to us.
Recently, I found out about yet another great product that reduces waste, fills a need, and just happens to be super cute! Cloth makeup pads, yep, ditch the disposable makeup rounds!
These cuties are from the shop, FandC Sewing, and are perfect for applying toner, astringent, moisturizer, and lotion. They measure 2.5 x 2.5″ and are made of terry cloth on one side and pretty soft fabric on the other, so they’re perfect for the face.
I use them to remove eye makeup before bed, and my teenage daughter, Maggie, removes her foundation and concealer with them. She loves how small and pretty they are. You can read her thoughts on them on her blog, Dreaming of Guatemala. :)FandC Sewing’s shop owner, Misty, makes all things lovely and eco-friendly, her shop is truly inspiring! She has cloth napkins, unpaper towels, dish sponges, and more. Everything is reasonably priced which is awesome because we need to be switching to these things and it shouldn’t be expensive to do so! Amiright?
