I was lucky enough to be invited to a wonderful press event with North West Blog Gang at The Body Shop Liverpool One last week, to learn all about their new menstrual equity campaign and their updated approach to plastic use. I was also treated to a wonderful and vegan-friendly facial*, learned some interesting bits about skincare, and discovered that Vimto Chewy Bon-Bons are vegan and very addictive! 



Having experienced the horror of 90% of my skincare and regular makeup running out simultaneously, I decided to take the opportunity to revamp my routine and cut down on my plastic use. Previously, I'd been using a lot of Faith in Nature for my skincare, but it wasn't working that well for my skin, and it still came in plastic packaging - albeit recyclable. I'm lucky enough to live near the biggest Lush store in the world, so set my heart on a visit there to fix my skincare woes. If anywhere can help cut down on pimples and plastic, it's Lush. 



Reducing your environmental impact can seem so overwhelming. There's so many changes you can make, and yet at the same time, it's easy to feel like the world is stacked against you. Trust me, the world wants your help, but the corporations in charge don't like to make it easy! If you're feeling flustered and unsure where to begin, fear not! There are so many little changes you can easily slip into your daily life before jumping into the big stuff.
