There are lots of little ways you can show the earth some love on a daily basis. We’re particularly inspired by Rachel Zoe’s eco-efforts when it comes to her beauty cabinet—a mix of all-natural, organic, sulfate-free and non-toxic products. RZ makes a point to support beauty businesses that promote a clean environment, whether it be an under-the-radar brand that uses minimal packaging or a big corporation that coordinates a recycling program for used makeup cases—all these factors add up. Here, 18 ways you too can get gorgeous and feel good about it.
