Sustainability of the Beauty Industry


Australians collectively spend over billions of dollars in the beauty industry every year, but it is only recently we have become more conscious on its impact on sustainability.

It is currently estimated that over 10,000 tonnes of cosmetic waste goes to landfill every year in Australia, because many beauty products aren’t generally accepted in kerbside recycling.

So, is it too late for the industry to make a sustainable change? Or are we seeing a positive shift within the industry alongside new trends and brands marketing themselves as being eco-conscious.

In today’s podcast, you will be hearing from myself and two amazing women, Margie and Aimee, who have major roles in Global Beauty company, AmorePacific- innisfree.
