Let's talk about giving your lashes a serious green upgrade! We're taking a closer look at the not-so-friendly impact of traditional lashes on our environment and why it's time we consider switching to more natural, Earth-loving options. We also explore eco-friendly and biodegradable eyelash options that are kind to you and our planet! 🌎

Effects of Lashes on Our Environment

Traditional lashes and even lash extensions are made with synthetic materials that can harm the planet. These materials, like PBT plastic, (Polybutylene Terephthalate) behaves much like regular plastic and doesn't break down naturally. It can take hundreds of years to decompose into tiny plastic particles. This is a big problem because it means that every lash has the potential to end up in landfills and pollute the environment. 

Earth-Friendly Eyelashes

Say hello to #greenbeauty with plant-powered lashes! Our lashes are made from plant-derived hemp fibers, a renewable resource that helps reduce the need for synthetic materials. The production process alone requires 75% less energy than traditional lashes, significantly reducing carbon footprint to contribute to a more eco-conscious world.🌎 Plant lashes easily find their way back to the earth through the industrial composting process. This helps cut down on waste and keeps the cycle of sustainability going.

The Science of Our Biodegradable Lashes

🌿Plant fibers, while naturally soft and comfortable, can sometimes lose their shape and strength over time. To fix this, we've infused our lashes with a special blend of biodegradable components. This unique mix provides a double benefit. It ensures a natural breakdown process while also maintaining the lashes' original shape, preserving their lightweight feel and natural look. As these biodegradable products naturally break down, they do so through a gentle, eco-friendly process becoming one with soil and nature. This organic decomposition requires no harsh or artificial chemical reactions to kickstart the process, resulting in reduced pollution and a gentler environmental footprint.


In 180 days or less, plant-powered lashes will break down with the natural industrial composting process, returning to the Earth and leaving behind no traces of waste.♻️ Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint and emissions with our eco-friendly choice, but you're also helping to make our planet healthier!
