Celebrate Earth Day this month with these Eco-Friendly Brands

Earth Day is April 22nd, while we love to celebrate our planet and the initiatives that work to protect our planet on this day, the brands below truly embody this sustainable spirit year-round! 

Sun Patch is the only peel-and-stick UPF+ silicone sunblock on the market (UPF measures the amount of radiation that can penetrate the fabric to reach your skin). Think of it as an accessory to your sunscreen. The patches feel like a second skin and have a California vibe that’s irresistible. They are also reusable, eco-friendly, and nontoxic to oceans! They look like cool neon stickers in bright colors, with neutral options coming soon. Founder Gena was a mom looking for a solution to applying and reapplying suncare products on her kids, eliminating the fuss and mess. She also wanted protection and anti-aging benefits for herself too. The more she talked with other moms, the more she realized she had the perfect background to launch a sunblock brand. Hence, Sun Patch was born. I absolutely love that these are reusable and nontoxic to the ocean! If you have been following me for a while, you know how important beach clean-up and keeping our oceans clean is a really big deal with me! These are quite affordable too! Price: $26.00-$49.00

High-end skin-care collections that will bring the spa to your home daily! Terrakai Skin has ingredients that are native to Australian regions! Their Australian botanical ingredients are sourced solely from where the botanical ingredient comes from, which is why customers will pay for their skincare! They sustainably harvest the most potent, resilient botanicals, from Kangaroo Paw to Kakadu Plum to Snowflower, and add in high quality ingredients like hyaluronic acid and collagen to create super serums to make your skin plump, hydrated and glow. The thoughtful design that underpins every Terrakai Skin formulation allows us to tick all the boxes on our founding mission: Environmentally conscious, 100% vegan, and high-performance. With 25 products to choose from, you will find a line perfect for your skin type! One of my favorites is the Kakadu Plum+Emu Apple Cleansing Milk. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and refreshed.

“Baesix (/ˈbasics/) is your vegan, organic, cruelty-free, inclusive & eco-responsible simple, skincare routine for happy skin everyday! Baesix skincare is ONLY SIX steps to healthier skin! The “BAE” means “Before Anyone Else” – meaning love yourself first then others will fall in love with you too; and the “SIX” stands for the six simple steps to follow for glowing, healthy skin! Baesix developed their unique formulas from scratch in Korea with a focus on healthy hydration and bioactive nourishment. They use 100% organically certified bamboo in their products. As one of nature’s richest sources of silica; bamboo extract is known to stimulate the production of collagen, loaded with antioxidants that combat free radicals, and boasts potent anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial qualities. Not only are the products AMAZINGLY good for your skin, but the packaging is AMAZINGLY good for our planet! Their packaging is either biodegradable or 100% recyclable. Their bottles are made from corn starch and bamboo, their tins are aluminum, their paper is FSC certified and refills sachets are made from sugarcane! I absolutely love the Hydrating CC Face Moisturizer which also has SPF 35 PA+++.

It is absolutely my new daily Moisturizer!

Skincare that’s just as kind to your skin as it is to mother earth! O’o Hawaii is a cruelty-free and sustainable line that ensures that the natural resources of its ingredients are preserved and protected. The brand focuses on keeping things simple to achieve its ultimate beauty goals of healthy, glowing skin from the inside out.  At the root are antioxidants grown in Hawaii’s nutrient-rich, volcanic ash soil, exclusive Triple Boosting Complexes™, and real crystals from nature. All products are non-GMO, vegetarian and cruelty-free with reusable packaging. The brand’s integrative skincare is made to enrich skin by giving it the nutrients needed for anti-aging and protection against harsh environmental hazards of daily life, such as UV damage. Founder Holly Harding is an expert in integrative nutrition and realized the disconnect between internal nutrition and external skincare. So, she created a line with both skincare and oral supplements. For every online sale, O’o Hawaii donates $1.00 to the Keauhou Bird Conservation Center Discovery Forest program.

I tried the Brillant Feather Beauty Balm and love how soft my face feels after I use it!
