Landfills are becoming fuller by the minute, and finite resources are being diminished with each tank of gasoline spent. While we may not exactly be in urgent danger of running out of valuable resources, our children or grandchildren may have to face the difficult prospect of perhaps running out of some of the things we take for granted today. Things such as clean water to drink and even clean air to breathe may be an extremely limited resource. With that being said, there are things we can do today to help diminish the size of the footprints we are leaving on this planet, and among them are adopting a greener beauty routine with pure cosmetics.
