SWITCHING TO REUSABLE COTTON PADS

En ting jeg aldrig nogensinde havde overvejet man kunne skifte ud til noget mere bæredygtigt, det var vatrondeller! Aldrig nogensinde havde jeg tænkt på at dette var noget jeg faktisk kunne skifte ud, lige indtil at jeg så Carolina ligge et billede op på instagram med genbrugelige vatrondeller. Det er jo intet mindre end genialt.

De fleste kvinder bruger minimum 1 vatrondel om dagen til at fjerne make-up med. Det vil altså sige 365 vatrondeller om året, og så kan du selv gang det op med et par år og se hvor vanvittigt mange vatrondeller du smider ud.

Men så er det jo heldigt at man kan erstatte engangs vatrondellerne, med nogle genbrugelige nogle. Jeg har købt disse, men de kan også findes mange andre steder. Så vasker du simpelthen bare vatrondellerne efter brug, enten i vaskemaskinen eller i hånden efter du har brugt dem – og så kan du bruge dem igen og igen. Så smart, og miljøvenligt og ikke mindst bæredygtigt!

One thing that it never occurred to me that I could switch to something more sustainable was cotton pads! I had never thought about that I could change these, until I saw a picture which Carolina posted on Instagram with reusable cotton pads. That is genius. 

Most women use at least 1 cotton pad once a day to remove make-up with. That equals 365 cotton pads a year, and then you can multiply that with several years and see how many cotton pads you throw out.

But luckily enough you can switch the single-use cotton pads with some reusable ones. I have bought these, but I know you can find them many other places as well. You just wash the cotton pads after use, either in the washing machine or hand wash and them you just use them again and again. So smart, environmentally friendly and sustainable!
