    100th EPISODE!... revisiting REN Skincare's Zero Waste Pledge...

    Back in 2019 I spoke with then REN SKINCARE CEO Arnaud Meysselle.  In 2018 the company had pledged to become Zero Waste by 2021, meaning 100% of all REN Clean Skincare packaging would be recycled, recyclable or reusable.
    And guess what they did it! 
    To tell us about the trials and tribulations of being a Zero Waste beauty brand is REN Global Ambassador - with 20 years in the skincare industry and a glowing complexion - David Delport!

    Listen to the original episode with REN Skincare ‘How to become a Zero Waste Beauty Brand?’
