With only a few months left in 2020, there’s never been a better time than now to start creating a refillable zero-waste beauty kit. At this point, most of us know the detrimental impact that plastic has on our planet, and we’re usually more than willing to make kitchen or bathroom swaps if it means reducing our waste. However, we are here to show you that you can go zero-waste with beauty products too.

ZAO Refillable Bamboo Makeup

Face Makeup

ZAO carries just about every makeup essential you can think of but makes it zero-waste and chemical-free. We carry their Refillable Compact Foundation, Bronzer, Highlighter, and Blushers, in a wide range of shades. If you’re new to zero-waste beauty, we have ZAO Foundation Testers so you can try it out before making the full commitment!

If you’re a bit of a minimalist, grab a few magnetic Bamboo Makeup Palettes that store up to two powders each. We recommend one palette for your foundation and bronzer and another palette for your highlighter and blusher! Simply pop out the empty compact from the bamboo container, and pop in a brand new refill. 

Eye Makeup

Refillable face products are almost self-explanatory, but what about refilling eye makeup? ZAO created the solution to plastic mascaras by reducing plastic waste from mascara tubes by 90%. With the same intensity, volume, and length, the Aloe Vera Mascara is full of hydrating ingredients that will nourish your lashes from root to tip. 

The formula is packaged inside a thin, recyclable plastic inner layer with a refillable bamboo holder. ZAO’s low-waste packaging, combined with a refillable concept, is changing the way that we see beauty!



Another eco-friendly way of doing beauty, ZAO offers Refillable Soft Touch Lipsticks to give you that beautiful flush of color, minus excessive waste. Their collection of refillable lipsticks come in a range of colors, with a shade for everyone and for every occasion.

Each lipstick is packaged inside a thin plastic layer with a refillable bamboo holder. Essentially, the lipsticks have the same low-waste concept as the mascaras, and when compared to standard lipsticks, ZAO reduces plastic usage by 90%!

All Earth Minerals

Mineral Foundation, Concealer & Finishing Powder

All the mineral makeup lovers out there, All Earth Minerals has the perfect zero-waste additions for your beauty kit. We carry their Mineral Foundation, Concealer, and Finishing Powder, all of which come inside compostable card pots. 

The products are meant to be multipurpose, meaning you can mix the formulas together to create consistencies and combinations of your choice! Once you have your product, take one of the Bamboo Sifter Pots, which makes for the easiest application, or use a container at home and dump the product inside. When you run out, all you need to do is grab the refill product.


Mineral Illuminators, Bronzer & Blushers

To add warmth and a touch of luminosity, this mineral trio will become a must-have inside your beauty kit: All Earth Minerals Illuminator, Bronzer, and Blusher. Each product has the same zero-waste, refillable, and multi-purpose concept, just like the base makeup products we mentioned above.

If you love natural, glowing skin but only have a few minutes to do your makeup, All Earth Minerals is your go-to brand due to their emphasis on multi-use and mixing of formulas. For example, to get that all-over glow, the powders blend so seamlessly that you can mix the illuminator with your foundation, and you’re done in one step.

Best of all, we offer testers of the entire All Earth Minerals collection so you can try any product out before purchasing!

Love The Planet


Face Makeup

Last but not least, we carry Love The Planet’s collection of Foundation, Eyeshadow, Blusher, and Finishing Powder, all of which come in unique zero-waste packaging. Instead of traditional containers, this brand packages their mineral powders inside compostable bags made of kraft paper, cellulose, and starch.

Love The Planet is shifting the beauty industry into sustainable packaging and normalizing the concept of refillable makeup. Stock up on a few of our Bamboo Sifter Pots and fill them up with sustainably sourced makeup that you can feel good about.

In these last few months of 2020, we challenge you to explore the idea of refillable makeup. These three brands are leading the industry with a planet-friendly take on cosmetics. With the current state of the world, there’s never been a better time for zero-waste beauty initiatives to take place. If you’re not ready to take the plunge just yet, grab some samples first, and then revisit for your full-size products!
