Crochet washable make-up remover pads

The washable make-up remover pads allow you to remove make-up while respecting the environment

The washable crochet pads and make-up remover wipes are a sustainable alternative! If handmade with sustainable yarns, they are even more so!

One of the most common daily gestures for women is to remove makeup at the end of the day. And while we do it, we often don’t think about the impact our cotton pad will have on the planet.

If we only used 3 disposable cotton pads a day, we would have thrown away over 1,000 in a year!

The impact is considerable, and we should all start paying more attention to even such a simple gesture, like taking off your make-up!

We need to worry about the environment as much as we do about our skin!

The disposable cotton pads are made from cotton. As we know, the production of cotton requires a large amount of water and pesticides, leading to desertification and significantly polluting the soil.

And if we use wipes or cloths instead of cotton pads, would the impact be less?

Unfortunately not! Even disposable wipes are extremely polluting: made of synthetic material (polyester, polypropylene …), they end up being difficult to dispose of and if thrown down the drain they arrive directly in our seas with disastrous consequences!

Rub a Dub Scrubbies” kit, that allows you to make washable crochet pads, sponges and cleansing wipes can be the solution!
