Do you ever feel like no matter where you turn these days, when it comes to cleaning supplies, personal care products, or beauty supplies, you’re being inundated with a deluge of chemicals? From parabens, phthalates, preservatives, ammonia, and other obscure and terrifying ingredients, we’re being surrounded by harmful ingredients. When you couple this with the enormous amount of plastic packaging and waste that comes from all of these bottles and tubes, suddenly it seems like rather than purchasing products that are supposed to make our lives cleaner, we’re creating a huge mess for both ourselves and the planet.

Well, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here at One Green Planet, we believe that living a healthy, eco-conscious life doesn’t mean giving up cleaning your kitchen, wearing makeup or slacking on personal hygiene. Rather, it means using a little ingenuity to find a truly better alternative.

Making your own products is a great way to save money and ensure that you’re steering clear of any nasty toxins, and unnecessary plastic waste – and we’re here to help you do it!

Below is the one guide you’ll need to learn how to DIY cleaning, beauty and hygiene products.

  1. Ultimate Guide to DIY Beauty

    Beauty products might help us feel like our best selves, but that doesn’t always mean that they contain ingredients that are the best for our health. Whatever we put on our skin, we might as well be putting straight into our bodies, so steering clear of harmful toxins in beauty products is very important. The good news is, you don’t have to settle for drugstore mascara or foundation – you can DIY everything you could possibly want! Say goodbye to nasty ingredients and hello to all-natural beauty. See A Green Monster’s Ultimate Guide to DIY Beauty.
