As we all remain united in making our world a safer and better place, we can’t help but realize the impact we can have on earth if we all take actions together.
By just making one small change individually, we have the power to make bigger and better changes for the future. Keeping this spirit of unity in mind and how impactful it can be, this Earth Day, we want to encourage you to make simple changes in your lifestyle for a more sustainable earth. We want to show you how easy it can be to start a greener life.
Here are 4 easy steps you can take to start a greener life today
1. Save electricity
Are you guilty of forgetting to turn off your air conditioners and fans after you have left your room? Do you forget to turn off the lights? We tend to forget that electricity is generated from somewhere- in this case, burning of coals and natural gases which can generate greenhouse gases.
Make use of natural lights as much as you can. And while we are staying home and staying safe, remember to turn off any electrical power that is not in use. Remind your family members if they forget. By doing this you are being an earth hero without even spending any money!
2. Start using sustainable green products
You are not alone in the quest to save the earth. Many brands are taking the responsibility to create products that are not only safe for the environment but also work well for you. An inexpensive vegan brand that wants you to consider your everyday shower routine is Love Beauty and Planet.
Our Try and Review Filipino members enjoyed using Love Beauty and Planet as every element of the brand is focused on sustainability. 100 Try and Review testers gave two of their lines ago; the Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Collection and the Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Collection
Here are some reasons that make this brand a favourite amongst sustainable users:
All products of Love Beauty and Planet contain only naturally and ethically sourced ingredients and our testers seemed to love that about the brand. Many of them raved about how the shampoos and conditioners left their hair silky soft, while the body wash left their skin smooth and moisturised after each wash. The all-natural ingredients hydrated their skin while being gentle. 96% of our testers said they would buy Love Beauty and Planet range within 3 months.
@Mimcee was thrilled and says “The bottle is 100% recyclable! Not to mention what’s inside is made of VEGAN ORGANIC ETHICALLY-SOURCED PLANT-BASED and MILD ingredients! And as someone who is asthmatic and has sensitive skin that’s prone to breakouts and allergies, I was pleasantly surprised that I never did with this body wash! I’m in love! ❤️❤️❤️There’s absolutely nothing to hate about Beauty and Planet’s shampoos conditioners lotions and body washes!! ❤️❤️❤️ Absolutely nothing! ???????? You get to be beautiful and save the planet! …”
Revolutionary rinse-off technology
Love Planet and Beauty created a game-changing fast-rinse technology for their conditioners so that it can be washed off much faster. This means we don’t just rehydrate and replenish our hair, we can also help save water. 30 seconds might not seem significant, but the numbers add up when you consider the impact of people all around the world doing the same thing
The conditioners (and shampoos, of course) clean hair well even with this fast-rinse technology. @kcperlas loves the conditioner and says “Overall I love the conditioner. Not only because of the lightweight feeling after use but also I can feel that my hair starts to recover from the chemical treatment.”
Long-lasting, carefully crafted scents from natural essential oils
Many of our testers loved the lush, tropical scents of Love Beauty and Planet, which are made with ethically sourced essential oils or absolutes from all around the world. Each fragrance is crafted and perfected by experienced perfumers to pamper your senses so that you’ll enjoy your showers even more.
User @zay.ti27 was blown away by the fragrance and says “As for the fragrance all I can say is WOW!! It’s really a scent everybody would love. For some reason it gave me refreshing feeling after bath. And take note it also made my hair shinier in one use… Totally guilt free. Keep it up Love beauty and planet!!”
3. Stop using single-use plastic
Plastic is a huge source of pollution on our planet. Plastic pollution can affect human and marine life by making our landscapes and oceans dirty and depositing harmful chemicals in them. According to National Geographic, “single-use plastics (plastic bags, straws, takeaway containers) account for 40% of plastic pollution every year”.
You can begin by minimizing the usage of single-use plastics in your life. When you go to the grocery store, take a cloth bag with you. If you are planning to get takeaways, bring your own containers, . Say no to straws that you will never use again and bring your water bottle wherever you go.
Did we mention, Love Beauty and Planet’s bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic with easy-to-remove labels, so they can be recycled easily. Another Try and Review tester, @Ronmiranda says “I love Love Beauty and Planet products because not only are they good for the body but they are also good for the planet. As an eco-warrior, I am able to contribute to preserving our planet by using their products.”
4. Walk wherever possible
Although our outings are limited to grocery and medicine runs right now, we can still make a difference by choosing to walk or cycle whenever and wherever we can. While it sounds easy, we have become people of convenience. We want to get anywhere as easily and as quickly as possible.
According to the official website for Earth Day, for every 1 km you don’t drive, you get to save 0.5g of carbon emissions! And of course, walking will also help you stay fit. It’s a win-win situation.
So here are 4 easy tips from Try and Review to help you get started on your journey to sustainability this Earth Day. Start implementing these tips right after you have read this article.
