    The complexity of sustainability in skincare with Bolt Beauty

    The complexity of sustainability in skincare with Bolt Beauty

    Today I am chatting to Bolt Beauty founder Lisa Sexton about how she set up the sustainable, carbon neutral skincare company!

    We talk about the sustainability aspects of everything from sourcing product, to the innovative packaging, being carbon neutral, the beauty industry selling through fear - a personal bug bear of mine and Lisa's - launching during lockdown and why sometimes, unfortunately plastic is still the best option!

Great podcast

A great listen and very informative. Fantastic host with guests who really know their stuff. A must listen if this is a topic which interests you...and even if it’s not!

So inspiring

I’ve only just started the journey to tackle my plastic consumption, and this podcast is an education for me. From learning simple life hacks to connecting with inspiring organisations to help me change my consumer habits. Andrea Fox is entertaining and relatable, and the guest are all admirable for their stance on tackling waste and pollution.

Always looking forward to the next episode!

As a newbie to environmental issues and the zero waste movement this podcast helps me feel positive about the future rather than feeling quite daunted and overwhelmed. Great for ideas and learning about new innovations :)
