Did you know April is Earth Month? It seems like beauty is on everyone’s mind over on Instagram so I wanted to share an eco-friendly beauty brand for anyone looking to love our planet a little more. And guess what, it’s affordable and can be purchased at your local Albertsons! I picked up the Love Beauty and Planet shampoo, conditioner, and deodorant at Jewel-Osco which is the Midwest brand! If you don’t have a Jewel, try Safeway, Vons, Pavillions, or Carrs!
So why is it important to be environmentally conscious? I’m sure you’ve all read articles, watched news segments, or heard someone mention global warming at least one point in your life. Think you know everything there is to know? Take the quiz below to see what you know about sustainable beauty as part of their #smallactsoflove campaign! It’s only 5 questions and I found it interesting! What kind of planet protector are you?
Here is what you need to know about the brand, Love Beauty and Planet (and why I wanted to share it with you). Not only is Earth Month a great opportunity to think about ways that you’re impacting the environment but the Love Beauty and Planet are also budget friendly and easily available. I get quite a few questions on Instagram for products that are both of those! I love finding companies that also show our planet a little love. Here are a few facts that I love about the brand:
- They use recycled bottles for 80% of their products. They also use a special adhesive on the labels to ensure that they can easily be removed from the bottles during recycling.
- Their conditioners are meant to rinse out quickly to reduce water use. This is patent pending technology that also reduces tangles!
- Their hair spray is powered by compressed air instead of greenhouse gases!
- They’ve committed to publishing results on their reduction of greenhouse gas, water, and waste footprints too during product manufacturing and distributing.
The other thing that I was pleasantly surprised by was that the brand recognizes they are a work in progress. They’re actively trying to make their products and their packaging more responsibly sourced. This kind of transparency goes a long way in terms of building up trust with us, the consumer. I’ve talked about this a ton on Instagram but this path can take a few years for any brand! It’s incredibly hard to make sure that you’re reducing the impact to the environment as much as possible every step along the way. But I love that Love Beauty and Planet lists their 6 goals right on their website so you can follow along on their progress!
In the month dedicated to giving back to the planet, why not make a small change in your routine? It’s an easy swap for you and it’s realistic given you can pick it up on your next trip to Jewel-Osco! All Albertsons stores have a $2 off any 2 Love Beauty and Planet promotion from 3/27/19 through 4/23/19 as an added bonus! You can’t miss the pretty (recycled!) packaging on the shelves. I got the Argan Oil and Lavender scent and love it!
Have you tried Love Beauty and Planet? Does it sound like something you’d be interested in to celebrate Earth Month?
