Sustainable Beauty Swaps That Aren’t Overwhelming

International Coastal Clean-Up Day might be over, but sustainable beauty never goes out of date. You could even say it is the future of beauty.

And it doesn’t need to be overwhelming.

Climate anxiety is real, and with 130,000 tonnes of plastic hitting our oceans every year, you can see why.

Leading the way in sustainable hair care is The Department of Brands (including key brands, Bar None, Kyn, BRITE and Spot Medic), showing customers that making small changes in your beauty routine can be easy, simple and still super cute.

Switch out your plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles for Bar None’s Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner Bars. Completely zero-waste in biodegradable packaging, crazy hydrating and will last three times longer than bottled products. Or choose a biodegradable scrunchie or hair tie – never feel bad about losing one again!

How many unused hair products do you have in your bathroom? 5, 10, 15? With Kyn’s adaptable and clean formula, everyone can use the same products, no matter their hair type! Straight, fine, curled, wavy, textured, dyed, you name it. For example, Kyn’s Overnight Hair Mask? Use it as a leave in treatment for fine hair or a small amount to tame frizz and flyaways!


Sick of dying your hair with way too many chemicals? BRITE’s vegan hair colour range is good for your hair and the planet. The Naturally Brite range is made from 100% plant-based ingredients that strengthen your hair (not break it), leaving it feeling stronger and looking vibrant. Or for something more fun, try the Vegan Semi-Permanent Hair Dye, available in a range of colours including Pink, Purple, Turquoise, Red and Green.

These are all simple and easy swaps that don’t need to be overwhelming. You’ve got this!
