This holiday season, give some gifts you (and your giftees) can really feel good about.

There are plenty of beauty brands taking an eco-friendly approach to beauty. Some use sustainably sourced, naturally derived (sometimes certified organic) ingredients, others put an emphasis on recycled and recyclable packaging. And some do both. Buying an eco-friendly beauty product is a win-win: You can feel better about what you’re putting on your skin and back into the world.
