It's no secret the beauty industry alone produces a ton of waste in our world.
An estimated 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, most of which are not recyclable. Scientists suggest that by 2050, about 12,000 metric tons of plastic waste will be in landfills or the natural environment.
In our own ways at Monarchy, we aim to amplify the discussion of sustainable beauty though leading by example.

Here are 3 ways you're able to produce less waste in your every day life right now
Reduce how much waste you're creating. This could mean buying less, or it could also mean being more cautious with your decisions and setting boundaries.
As an example, not using the small plastic bags at the grocery store, as you're going to wash your fruits and veggies anyways.
Monarchy lashes last longer than 25 wears. We did this for a reason: do you can feel confident in your lashes and continue to re-use them, rather than buying a new pair every week. Instead of throwing that candle out, reuse it as a flower pot! Instead of throwing out your mascara, clean the wand and send it to Project Wild Wands Canada.
The one most of us know and do! Do your very best to recycle as much as you can: from clothes, packaging, home goods, etc. A prime example is buying or selling on places like Kijiji, Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace. Don't forget to separate your items in bins properly, so everything else can be recycled.
The biggest thing to remember when becoming more sustainable and conscious: nobody is perfect and nobody is also expecting you to be perfect! Every step towards being more aware is a step in the right direction
