10 sustainable brands you need to follow to get started on your eco-friendly lifestyle
Every year, on June 5 the planet celebrates World Environment Day. A day that is quite monumental in how the world can change its way of life to protect the planet. And today, we’re here to help you take a step in that direction - by showcasing brands that will help you lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
What is sustainability?
Simply defined sustainability is “the ability to exist” constantly. While we know our BloodSisters would love that ability, especially to exist in our prime, smooth skin, great body and healthiest self years, sustainability basically means that we need to focus on our present needs in a way that it does not compromise resources for the future generations.
Put in simple words, it’s using what we have to the best of its ability, trying not to deplete more of the earth's resources and following a lifestyle that does not harm the environment. We know our BloodSisters are super eco- friendly and are constantly looking to make tiny alterations to their lifestyle, that is not just healthy for them, but for the planet too!
