With the use of plant based beauty, organic textiles, and fair trade practices in manufacturing, Eco-friendly/Sustainable products are in demand. The benefits of using natural skincare products are obvious. Eliminating chemicals from your favorite body and haircare items is a huge priority for women. Plus it feels good knowing that even the clothes you wear helps support the fair trade market and struggling world communities who are trying to empower themselves. I've selected a few sustainable summer essentials for your consideration. Enjoy your weekend. Stay Beautiful! XOXO
My favorite pick is the adorable hemp soap on a rope from The Body Shop. Also featured is an editors fave from Splurge, the rub sugar scrub, an all natural, vegan exfoliating scrub. Both products will keep you fresh, clean and smooth all summer long. Next feature is Naja, an affordable lingerie brand whose bras and panties are made out of fabric from recycled plastic bottles. They also have a campaign titled, Underwear For Hope. A percentage of every purchase you make goes toward supporting their entrepreneurial sewing program for women through the Golondrinas Foundation. And for every bra purchase you make, you contribute directly to the employment of a single mother. How it works: When you buy a bra, Naja gives you a lingerie wash bag so that you can wash your undergarments. Each lingerie bag is made at home by one of the women that we employ through Underwear for Hope. The other items featured here are a swimsuit from Swim Outlet and jewelry from Shop Ethica, which sells amazing Eco-friendly fashions and fun accessories. Shop at the links below.
