For people who are suffering from acne-prone skin, this facial wash works amazing!✨ But, what is not really amazing is the packaging😢 I know that your company provides #BBOB or #BringBackOurBottles program to raise environmental problem awareness to the customers. That’s really great! But, we all know where plastics will end at the very last of its life as they can only be “downcycled” for 1-2 times before going to landfill.
Please don’t get me wrong. I don’t think plastic is evil and I still believe recycling is a good alternative to keep useful material out of the landfill. But, I don’t like the facts that a lot of people (especially those who don’t know the dark side of recycling) will start to think and give comments like “It is okay to use plastics as long as we recycle them, right?”. Yeah, recycling is helpful but it WON’T BE ENOUGH. We really need to refuse plastics in the first place to let manufactures know that we want them to PRODUCE LESS.
I feel contradicted about this. But, this product is still the best alternative for me now and I can’t do much about it although I’m giving my best effort to reduce my plastic consumption. All I can do now is cutting down my usage from few drops into only one drop every time I wash my face. It turned out this 250ml bottle can last for 9 months (first buy: late May ‘18, second buy: early March ‘19).
Deeply inside, I DO really hope @thebodyshop will start to consider and switch to a better packaging alternative so I can continue using this amazing product!✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨✨✨✨ We believe that you do have so much power to facilitate us, your consumers, to fight plastic pollution together🙌🏼
