Dr. Zenovia’s Favorite Sustainable Brands + How to Upcycle Your Skincare Empties

In honor of Earth Day, Dr. Zenovia wanted to highlight some of her favorite sustainable brands. Our team also included ways to reuse your skincare empties. Let’s work on becoming more waste-free and eco-friendly together!  

Dr. Zenovia’s Favorite Sustainable Lifestyle Brands 

Here are some of Dr. Zenovia’s favorite earth-friendly fashion and food brands:  

Girlfriend Collective: This brand has amazing eco-friendly activewear! Dr. Zenovia loves the color selection too. Each pair of Girlfriend leggings are created using recycled water bottles and are manufactured at their fair-trade facility.   

Nespresso: Dr. Zenovia may have gotten through med school without taking a sip of coffee but has recently become a coffee connoisseur! She loves preparing her coffee at home using the Nespresso machine. Nespresso has a great recycling program so that the capsules have a second life as new products.  

VEJA: As a Newport Beach resident, Dr. Zenovia loves wearing her stylish and sustainable VEJA trainers on the weekends. All of their shoes are made with raw materials sourced from organic farming and ecological agriculture without the use of chemicals.  

Whole Foods Market: Dr. Zenovia loves doing her weekly grocery shopping at Whole Foods. They offer a wide range of healthy, sustainable, and organic products.  

How to Upcycle Your Skincare Empties  

Here are some of our teams’ favorite ways to repurpose our skincare empties:  

Flower Vase: Our tall cleanser and toner bottles can be repurposed as minimal tall vases to hold flowers on your bedside table or work desk.  

Jewelry Container: Store your favorite rings and daily jewelry in empty skincare jars! Dr. Zenovia’s 10% Glycolic Acne Control Peel Pads and Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer containers would work great for this purpose. 

Succulent Pot: Our skincare jars can also be repurposed as planters for succulents or small plants. Dr. Zenovia loves placing smaller plants in her office and at-home workstation to add some life and greenery to the space.

Vitamin Container: Dr. Zenovia is a huge proponent of taking vitamins and supplements for skin and overall health. Empty skincare containers can serve as a great on-the-go pill case! 

Cotton Round StorageDr. Zenovia Skincare jars can also be repurposed to store cotton rounds or cotton swabs on your vanity!
