We shine a spotlight on the steps being made by beauty to reduce plastic packaging and plastic waste in this video edition of the Editor’s spotlight.

With Costa Rica recently becoming the first country in the world to announce that it is ditching single use plastics, it is clear that the war on plastics is really heating up.

And we’re seeing this in beauty: the cosmetics and personal care industry actually uses a lower percentage of single use plastics, but even so, more will have to be done to reduce plastics use, as plastic packaging in all forms will increasingly come under the spotlight in years to come.

Discover some areas of ongoing and potential innovation in our video above.
