Bamboo Brushes - Good For Your Skin, Good For the Environment
Going green takes time and patience... and a lot of trial and error. New shampoos, conditioners, skin and face products, make-up... and even new brushes! That's right... do you know that the bristles of most brushes are made from animal hair (like goat and pony)?!? AND, the plastic handles only clutter our already overcrowded land fills! So, even if you are using synthetic brushes (i.e. taklon or nylon), you're still debasing our planet with the aluminum and plastic used on the handle of the brushes... but this can ALL change!
Here is an affordable and easy solution to eco-friendly make-up brushes: ECOTOOLS, a line of earth-friendly brushes. EcoTools uses cruelty-free hair on the bristles and all natural and recyclable materials.
What you get:
A bamboo handle
Animal-free taklon bristles
Metallic ferrule made from recycled aluminum cans
Reusable pouches printed with plant-based ink
Besides doing my part to save the environment (I drive a Hybrid as well), I love how light-weight these brushes are. They practically feel like air! And they deliver just as stellar results as those other, non environmentally-friendly brushes. Make-up glides on smoothly and evenly.
EcoTools offers 6 brushes for all your make-up needs...
Powder Brush - $7.99
Blush Brush - $6.99
Angled Eyeliner Brush
Eye Shading Brush - $3.99
Lash & Brow Groomer
There really is NO excuse NOT to use eco-friendly brushes! But just in case you needed yet another reason, EcoTools has also partnered with 1% For the Planet, an organization that provides financial support to environmental initiatives. This means that by buying the brushes, 1% of all annual sales per item will be donated to this terrific cause! Sustainable beauty!!!
Looking beautiful is important, but looking beautiful while saving the environment is vital!

I hope this helps!! And if you do end up buying these brushes, do come back and review them so the rest of us will have more incentive to buy them!

|I wonder if they are as good as Essence of Beauty and Sonia Kashuk.|

If they are getting good reviews I may give them a look. I need a new blush brush.
