What better way to begin a brand new month and season than with another issue of The Cut, right?
If you’re new here, The Cut is a monthly sustainable living series where I share eco-friendly brands I’ve recently discovered.
Since I missed last month’s issue, let’s just dive into No. 20 to learn about some great sustainable brands you can incorporate into your lifestyle.
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.
I discovered Cuffed by Nano several years ago when she sent me a PR package. If you’re wanting to start a fine jewelry collection, start with her pieces!
She uses recycled gold and silver, incorporates carbon offset shipping, and more! Recently, she did a special event where donations from our orders went to the families of the 13 fallen American soldiers. It was great timing because I was looking for a way to support our military families. I bought my best friend a ring for her birthday and added this 14k gold twist ring.
Considering I’ve been wearing my ring every day since I received it, I know this won’t be my last purchase!
Since I’m a huge beauty lover, I’m super excited to bring you more clean beauty brands I recently found that you can experiment with. Feel free to play with beauty with me!
I came across Le Labo years ago during a beauty event at Nordstrom. Guys, when I tell you that this aesthetically-pleasing brand is wonderful, just trust me.
When I was at the Nordstrom event, I tested every scent and there was not one single scent I didn’t like. For me, that is SO rare when it comes to fragrances!
It’s amazing to have found a brand that strikes a balance between masculine and feminine where their scents can be worn by men and women! Did I mention that they do not test on animals?
If you’re looking for a product to start with, I suggest the aluminum-free deodorant. It works and I love it so much that I’m on my third bottle! I just recently purchased their body wash in the basil scent to try too.
One of the biggest things I’ve started to do 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 and luxe brands pertaining to lifestyle as I find them!
Earlier this year, I was looking for a fun popup card for my mom for Mother’s Day and came across Lovepop cards. I loved how unique these cards are that I went ahead and ordered some birthday popup cards for adults since most of my loved ones have birthdays during the summer. Let me say that they were a hit!
While I wish they would use recycled or eco-paper, the Lovepop team does donate to organizations focused on sustainability and the environment. Hey, that’s a step in the right direction so why not support them?
You can shop Lovepop cards directly on their website!
I came across AMASS a few months ago on Instagram. And guys, for someone like me, who is all about aesthetics, I’m thrilled to see a spirits brand set the bar!
They not only creates skincare and home products such as candles, they also create, get this: botanical spirits! While I do not know much about their brand, I’d love to try it as it sounds so interesting and is cruelty-free/plant-based.
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.
I came across SustainablyChic last week and had to tell you about it! This well-established blog is written by sustainable blogger, Natalie. She covers everything from sustainable fashion and beauty to living a greener lifestyle (think eco-friendly weddings and Christmas gift guides).
I just love that Natalie has a section all dedicated to fabric guides. And if you’re a parent, she has a segment on conscious parenting as well! If you’re looking for a good resource to begin your sustainable living journey, her blog is a great place to start!
Have a look around her website and let me know your thoughts!
And that’s it for the fifth issue of The Cut for 2021!
What did you like most from today’s post? Feel free to comment and let me know if there is anything else you’d like to see in this series!
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.
