Zero Waste Deodorants - For Your Skin and The Planet

Zero Waste Deodorants - For Your Skin and The Planet

Many of us are looking at ways in which we can change our lifestyles to do a bit more for the planet. We’re recycling more and taking a water bottle with us when we go out. Many of us are looking to reduce our meat consumption, even if bacon is going to stop us ever going fully vegan! But have you made the change to a zero waste deodorant?

Starest's Zero Waste Approach

Our natural deodorants, formulated with 100% natural and organic ingredients, come in eco-friendly packaging. Either reusable glass jars or infinitely recyclable aluminium tins. This conscious choice minimises plastic usage and promotes recycling – a positive step towards reducing your carbon footprint.

Reasons to Make The Change

Currently, the deodorant industry produces over 15 million pounds of plastic waste each year*. We may try and recycle our old roll-ons, but sadly it doesn't always happen. The roller dial and cap are often a different plastic to the tube. This means they need to be completely disassembled to avoid recycling contamination.

If you think that’s ok, I use an aerosol and not a roll on, I’m afraid there’s bad news there too. Aerosol canisters are made from metals that can be recycled if they are completely empty. Unfortunately, due to leftover liquid or gas and the pressurised propellant inside, they often end up being classified as hazardous waste.

And it doesn’t stop there. While aerosols no longer contain ozone layer destroying CFCs, they now contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). A University of York study showed that these are still a problem. According to the report, household aerosols now emit more harmful VOC air pollution than all the vehicles in the UK. If you keep them trapped in enclosed spaces VOCs can be damaging to human health. Release them outside, and they can have a devastating effect on wildlife and agriculture.
