We hear the phrase "eco-friendly" a lot, but what does that really mean? It’s an umbrella term that means that a company’s ingredients, manufacturing, shipping or packaging methods reduce harm to Earth’s natural resources. Companies can be vegan, make their product without animal testing, or practice sustainable and zero waste measures. So, if you want to help protect the planet, and look good doing it, we’ve rounded up picks of eco-friendly cosmetic brands.
