Why Use Zero Waste Lip Balm?

From Plastic to Paper, Going More Eco-friendly

Most commercial lip balms are packaged in plastic tube. When we first started Lips Carpenter, we also had our lip balms in plastic tube. After a while, we realized that we are creating so much waste as a brand. So we decided to experiment and explore eco-alternative and we found these eco-friendly paper tubes that are degradable in 2 years as compared to 500 years for the plastic tube. 


The Unseen Side of Beauty Waste

There are almost 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year and most of cosmetic products are non-recyclable. WWF mentioned that Malaysia has one of the highest plastic uses in South-East Asia. Unfortunately, these wastes eventually end up in the landfill or worse, in the ocean. 

Benefits of Paper Lip Balm Tube

A small step towards eco-friendly living
It promotes eco-friendly and zero waste living towards a more sustainable future. We aren’t perfect, but small steps matter when they are thousands and millions of us.

99% shorter decomposition time
Did you know that paper tube can be decomposed within 2 years vs 500 years for plastic tube? That’s 99% more eco-friendly.

You get more lip balms, and waste less!
Paper tube can store larger volume of lip balm as compared to the plastic lip balm tube. Typical plastic tube can fit about 2-5 grams of lip balm while our zero-waste lip balm in paper tube can fit up to 6 grams. Not only that, for plastic tube, due to its mechanism, not 100% of the balm can be used, about 1 gram of the balm will be trapped at the bottom and wasted so essentially you are getting 1g less lip balm that can be used. See video below.

Video disclaimer: We have no intention to pin point any specific brand. This is a standard mechanism of plastic lip balm tubes across many brands.

So ready to now switch to zero waste lip balm
