Hello friends! I’m so excited for this month’sblog post series, The Cut!
Since we’re almost a month into quarantine, I wanted to share that I’ve discovered a new brand along with brands I already adore (that you’re familiar with too) who are doing their part for the environment/planet.
It’s so great to see some brands I’m already using working towards a better world!
Don’t be surprised if this month’s list is more home-focused! Let’s see who made this month’s list!
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.
If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of luxury fashion. And brands are proving that we can enjoy fashion while making better choices for our planet. That said, LuisaViaRoma has a sustainable section where you can shop for sustainably-made clothing and fashion items. I love how bigger luxury companies are supporting the eco-conscious fashion movement by carrying sustainable brands!
I stumbled upon Thousand Fell on Instagram through Kat Tanita. I was eyeing her sneakers in this post and asked her for the brand name. She responded to me and tagged Thousand Fell. Well, Thousand Fell and I quickly became friends! If you haven’t heard of them, they are a footwear brand aiming to reduce sneaker waste. When you’re done with your Thousand Fell sneakers, all you have to do is return it to them (and yes, they cover the cost) and they’ll break down your old sneakers and reuse the materials to make them into a new pair! Isn’t that awesome?!
Currently, I have my eye on this pair of lace up sneakers. Look at some of the description for this pair:
Durable and breathable recycled upper
Stain proof and water resistant coating
Aloe vera coated soft touch mesh liner
Cushioned recycled rubber insole
Structural details made from coconut, sugarcane, and palm
Recycled PET tonal flat laces
It just makes my heart so happy! If you’re looking to take the first step (pun intended, ha!) to do better for our planet, check out this great shoe brand!
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!
If you know Negin Mirsalehi, you know that she has amazing hair. I’m happy to report that her haircare company, Gisou, is taking steps to be a more sustainable business brand. And because of that, her honey infused hair oil is next on my list of haircare products to try!
You can purchase Gisou products directly on their website or on Revolve.
I had heard of Wet Brush for years and it wasn’t until I was in self-isolation that I realized I needed to try out one of their products: the detangler brush. Hey, the least I want to do is comb my hair after shampooing it, ha!
Recently, I also found their newest brush, The Wet Brush Watermelon Seed Oil Infused Brush, which has cruelty-free boar bristles that distribute natural oils when you comb your hair. The results they’re claiming? Shiny and smooth hair!
The best part? The handle is made from all-natural biodegradable plant starch. What does this mean? It means it’ll naturally break down in a landfill (within five years)! How cool is that? This brush also comes in green, which is infused with tea tree. Which color would you pick? Pink or green? I’d personally choose the pink!
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 brands pertaining to lifestyle as I find them!
I’ve been a long-time fan of Samsung and have been eyeing their frame television for the last few years to upgrade from my ten-year old Philips television. Lo and behold, I find out that they have recycling program, which is so awesome!
Throwing away electronics is so dangerous for the environment because chemicals can leech into the soil so I love that they’re passionate about educating their consumers on how to recycle responsibly.
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.
What Is Pre-Cycling? Think Prevention Rather Than Intervention
If you’ve been looking to improve your lifestyle while helping our planet by living more sustainably, this article about pre-cycling will add value to your life. It explains what pre-cycling means and gives you some insight into another sustainability method.
And that’s it for the third 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.
