According to research from Zero Waste Week, the cosmetics industry produces 120 billion units of packaging a year. The use of cardboard packaging alone contributes to the loss of 18million acres of forest per year. It is predicted that by 2050 there will be up to 12 billion tonnes of plastic in landfills generated by just the beauty industry alone. That’s a lot of forest lost and a lot of landfill filled!
