Beauty products that are great for the earth and your skin? What a wonderfully appropriate way to celebrate Earth Day.
Earth Day is this weekend, and with it, a nudge towards being more eco-conscious. There are three ways to get responsible when it comes to beauty products that appeal to different concerns or causes that a growing number of consumers are adopting. There’s the “green” eco-friendly and carbon footprint-reducing camp, those who prefer “natural” products that use naturally sourced ingredients. And there’s the camp opposing the cruelty that often accompanies animal-testing.
With the increasing focus on us as consumers to be eco-friendly, it’s no surprise at all that plenty of beauty brands are onboard the “green” train. Some have pledged to go carbon neutral in the next five years and others have been using Post Consumer Recycled packaging. Then we have brands that advocate for animals and are against animal testing, or others who create products that use naturally-sourced ingredients. Whatever cause you’re into, there’s a brand that’s just as into it as you are. Here are some of our favourite companies for these causes that also make beauty products worth buying!
