Dancing Barefoot's range of reusable face wipes are super sustainable. And this set makes them really convenient too.
The pack of 7 organic cloth wipes comes with a cotton laundry bag. Simply place the wipes in the bag once they're ready to be washed. This definitely helps keep track of used wipes that are waiting to be cleaned again!
Made of a blend of organic hemp and organic cotton, the square wipes are soft and gentle enough to use when cleaning your face. Yet the natural fibres mean they're also strong enough to go through the laundry and be reused... again and again.
These wipes make it so easy to reduce your plastic use and waste in an instant.

Why use reusable face wipes...
The disposable wipes industry has boomed in recent years and the favourites for many are facial cleanser wipes and makeup remover wipes. However, these products are made of a blend of plastic materials that do not biodegrade and, even worse, form 'fatburgs' blocking up sewer systems and lining riverbeds.
Instead, many of us have reached for cotton wool cleansing pads, which are also very convenient, and because they're made of cotton, sort of ok... right?
Wrong, we're afraid.
Farming cotton can cause huge environmental problems, especially if the cotton is not being organically produced. The chemicals used in the process can pollute nearby rivers and so wreak havoc on local ecosystems and wildlife. And cotton production uses a huge amount of water - some 20,000 litres are needed to produce 1kg of cotton (1 T-shirt), diverting water from surrounding areas and also causing serious damage to natural habitats.
The solution is to source organic cotton products and reuse them to help cut down waste.
