For the beauty lover in our lives it can be tough to give a gift that makes our recipient beautiful but that also values the beauty of our planet. Luckily new beauty brands are emerging everyday that are making it a priority to be more sustainable. Think about grabbing up some of these beauty items the next time you're in the market for a new gift.
Perfume brand Henry Rose, has gone the extra mile to create fragrances that are "EWG Verified™ (a mark that stands for health, transparency, and good manufacturing practices) and Cradle to Cradle Certified™ (one of the world’s most rigorous product sustainability standards)." Their bottles are made from "90% recycled glass and are 100% recyclable. [The] caps are made from sustainably-sourced and commercially compostable soy." Not to belabor the point but their packaging is also made from recycled corrugate paper and are recyclable.
HOW TO GIFT: To gift this luxury, yet sustainable fragrance line I would start with their collection of travel sprays to allow your recipient to choose their favorite scent.
This popular skin care brand helmed by the influencer duo of Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Ireland also encourages recycling! After purchasing your favorite skin care products, hold on to your empty packaging and send it back to the company for a free gift. You get to give a little to help the planet and get a little for yourself!
HOW TO GIFT: Pair this ever so cute Take Care of Yourself hoodie with a gift set for them to actually, you know, take care of themselves or at least their skin!
Just saying Oh-See-Ah makes you feel more relaxed and reminds you of a spa! This skin care brand is Climate Neutral Certified. Climate Neutral is a nonprofit that helps brands offset their greenhouse gas emissions. With their help, OSEA was able to measure, reduce, and offset 100 percent of our carbon footprint in 2020. We will affirm this commitment annually.
HOW TO GIFT: I would introduce any recipient to this brand with a set of their shower mists in their collaboration with Parachute. One for calm, evening showers and another for energizing morning showers. This set would pair perfectly with one of Parachute's soft, luxe robes!
So whether it's a gift to your mother or to Mother Nature, these gifts are sure to make everyone happy!
Very Happy Gifting!
