Brands that give back/are eco-friendly are the best kind. They can be difficult to find, so I made this list of some brands that are doing good in the world, so hopefully this helps.
EcoTools– These are hands-down my favorite makeup brushes. The brushes are made with bamboo and recycled materials, and are cruelty free. The packaging is also tree-free, and is instead made of bamboo fibers and cotton, and can usually double as a bag for the makeup brushes. They also sell other beauty tools, such as skincare, hair brushes and beauty blenders. They’re also pretty cheap for good quality and can be found in Wal-Mart or Meijer.
Out of Print– This company has rad shirts and other products printed with the covers of your favorite books. Each purchase helps fund literacy programs, book donations to communities in need and helps support artists, writers and publishers.
Happy Earth– 50 percent of every purchase goes to conservation efforts. SO far, Happy Earth has donated to Rainforest Alliance, Union of Concerned Scientists, Earthjustice and Oceana. Their products and packaging is also made of recycled materials, and energy efficient machines are used to make their products. For 15 percent off your next purchase, use promo code JSPANG24.
Pura Vida– Pura Vida has partnered up with over 190 different charities and donated over $935,358. They are also a member of 1% for the Planet, meaning that 1 percent of their annual net revenue to environmental organizations around the globe. Each bracelet is handmade by an artisan in Costa Rica.
