Earth Day is fast approaching and in the weeks leading up to it, many people celebrate Earth Month. This entire April, organizations dedicated to preserving the environment are raising awareness and creating consciousness around the many issues that impact our environment. Because the retail industry is one of the top contributors to environmental waste from packaging and manufacturing goods, many brands are now switching to more sustainable practices to help alleviate the environmental impact of various parts of their production processes. Macy’s has launched an effort called Mission Every One, in which they partnered with brands with sustainable solutions, including preferred materials, preferred practices, people first, and designed for less waste. In honor of Earth Month, here are three brands that are part of Macy’s earth-friendlier, sustainable Mission Every One collection.
This skincare and makeup brand is “committed to taking steps towards an even cleaner environment and making more sustainable choices” throughout its production process. Each product is cruelty-free, paraben-free, and made without phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), mineral oil and synthetic fragrance. Learn more.
