I’ll skip the Earth Day lecture and get straight to the point: You know all those beauty products cluttering up your bathroom counter? Turns out those products are pretty bad for the environment… and your wallet.  According to Cosmopolitan, consumer product packaging accounts for approximately 1/3 of all landfill waste. And if you are beauty junkie–like me–your addiction is resulting in a ton of unnecessary trash.

Now before you start panicking, I’m not asking you to throw out all your precious cosmetics and move to a hippie commune. Luckily, there are some simple ways to go “green” without dramatically changing your lifestyle–or pairing down your beauty arsenal. And if you think being more eco-friendly means shelling out tons of cash on organic beauty products, you’ll be happy to know that being eco can actually save you money. Companies like MAC and Zoya actually reward you when you are environmentally conscious.

Intrigued? Click through the slideshow to learn more about these programs and to start trying my cheap and easy tips for making your beauty routine more eco-friendly.

Who said it’s not easy being green? Shop these eco-friendly nail polishes and beauty products. And don’t forget to check out Gucci’s Green Carpet Challenge handbags.
