Students launch sustainable skincare line


Balcombe Grammar sisters, Daisy (Year 11) and Tilly (Year 9), launched ‘One Summer’ in 2021. The refillable beauty line aims to cut down the amount of waste that ends up in landfill from non-recyclable beauty product packaging by offering refills to their customers.

Daisy said, “As the younger generation that will be facing environmental issues, we wanted to create a brand that focused on sustainability.”

The skincare brand sells plain plastic refills to sit inside the original packaging. Empty cartridges can either be recycled or returned in a prepaid pouch, which the sisters clean, refill and reuse.

“We don’t want anything to go into landfill. It’s second-hand – but not dirty,” says Daisy.

We congratulate Matilda and Daisy on their efforts to advocate for more eco-friendly beauty products and their determination to grow their clientele of high school friends and mums in the local area.
