On April 22, the world will be celebrating Earth Day, where countries around the world will join forces to celebrate the planet and raise awareness for environmental protection. In honor of Earth Day, ethically-made and environmentally-friendly beauty brands are giving back, and here's how you can help, too.
By using clean bath and beauty products, beauty lovers can not only reduce their carbon footprints, but they'll also feel great doing it. Now you can take it to the next level by supporting organizations working to reduce the world's carbon footprint and protect the environment along the way.
Earth Day was originally created in the 1970s to bring environmental protection awareness to a national level. Now, over 190 countries celebrate the day dedicated to sustainable habits, but it doesn't have to stop there. You can start living green on a regular basis, 365 days a year, by simply by getting into the right habits, including your beauty routine. All it takes is a little research on what products are made in an eco-friendly fashion. That's where I'm here to help.
Start your journey to being more environmentally-friendly with these beauty products, which will donate a portion of each purchase to select environmental causes. Your world will thank you later.
