The Cut: No. 8

The Cut - No. 8 | She Sweats Diamonds - Versed face mask - tumeric face mask - clay face mask - cruelty free face mask

Getting back on track with my monthly sustainable living blog post series, The Cut, today, I wanted to share with you a few brands that are more accessible.

Let’s see who made this month’s list!

FASHION

Fashion is a large contributor to our landfills and pollution. To help our planet, here are some more great fashion brands you can purchase from and still do good.

SKIIM

This eco-friendly brand puts sustainable style on the map! One look at their collection and I’m dead. They are proof that you can be live stylishly and sustainably! Am I surprised this brand is based in London? Nope. I told you guys. I love my Brits! Check out their statement on sustainability as a business.

Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone is an old favorite denim brand of mine. I’ve made it a point that when I buy denim, it has to be from either consignment boutiques/shops and/or brands who care about the impact they’re making on our planet. And Rag & Bone is one of the higher-end brands who care because they have a program called the Denim Recycling Project.


BEAUTY

Since I’m a huge beauty lover, I’m super excited to bring you more clean beauty brands I recently found you can experiment with. Feel free to play with beauty with me!

Versed

I just recently heard about this brand and looked into them some more because (not going to lie,) I loved their packaging. Turns out that Versed is a skincare brand that’s clean, vegan, and cruelty-free! Their entire skincare collection includes cleansers, moisturizers, serums, masks, peels, and treatments and is under $50. Most products are around the $10 to $20 range while the higher price points are more so for bundles. I decided to nab their Photos Please Brightening Tightening Face Mask during one of my Target runs last week so I’ll let you know what I think!

You can find Versed skincare at Revolve and Target.

Sephora

If you guys have been around SSD for awhile, you know that I love shopping at Sephora and that if I ever talk or post about any sales, it’s about, you guessed it, Sephora.

Well, in case you didn’t know, they have a program called Sephora Stands that focuses on sustainability! Check out what actions they’ve taken and what they’re aiming to do and let me know what you think.

It makes me feel so good to know that one of my favorite stores is doing good for our world! I can’t wait to learn more about this side of their brand when I work with them one day. On a similar note, I took my mom to her first shopping trip to Sephora this past weekend and what did she say? “I don’t want to leave!” Same, mom. Same. Welcome to my world!


LIFESTYLE

One of the biggest things I’m starting now is to invest in items and services that are environmentally friendly. Here are my recent finds and don’t you worry, I’ll be sharing more eco-friendly brands pertaining to lifestyle as I find them!

Sustainable Travel Store

Sustainable Travel Store sounds exactly like it is. It’s an online store that sells things to help you travel more sustainably. Don’t let others think you can’t enjoy traveling and seeing our world. Whether, you’re slated for some down time at the beach, taking a bike trip, or even going on a road trip, just know you can do it without impacting our planet so much. This team not only provides great supplies, they educate you through their blog and Instagram.

Nebraska Furniture Mart

Nebraska Furniture Mart is one of my favorite places to shop for interiors. In fact, my couch is from NFM! Aside from giving back to education and doing community outreaches, part of the NFM team’s mission is to conserve. And they are huge advocates of recycling! Now, should I partner with them in the future, I’d want to know what they do with furniture and decor items that do not sell.


INFORMATIVE ARTICLES/SOURCES

To continue to keep you informed and make better choices for our planet, here are some fascinating sources and/or articles I found regarding sustainable living.

Stain removal

If you have a stain on your carpet, upholstery, or your clothes, don’t fret. Check out this extensive stain removal guide! Save our planet by giving your things new life all while saving yourself money!

And that’s it for the second issue of The Cut for 2020!

I hope you bookmark these posts so you can refer to them anytime you’re looking for a new-to-you eco-friendly company, brand, service or a product you need.

Note: Please note that there’s a website called The Cut that covers a ton of topics for women including fashion and beauty. My blog post series is in no relation to The Cut website as it only focuses on sustainable, more mindful way of living.
