Now more than ever before, it’s important to find ways to cultivate a happy and healthy environment for ourselves. Here are some ways to unwind and keep positive.

Make Mindful Kitchen Swaps

Making changes in the kitchen can go a long way in reducing waste and plastic use. Ditch paper towels for dish towels for a more eco-friendly option. Food storage is another easy way to eliminate waste. Swap single-use plastic wrap and ziploc bags with silicone storage bags, and glass or metal containers for plastic ones.

Rethink Your Wardrobe

Since spring-cleaning is top of mind this time of year, check your nearest organizations to donate pre-loved clothes or consignment apps. You can even check out some of our retailers who offer similar options for unwanted garments.

Next, invest in staples that will work year-round like a blazer, a coat or a pair of Chelsea boots. Always look for quality over quantity and choose materials like linen and organic cotton that are considered more eco-friendly.

Go Green With Cleaning

Cleaning products can contain ingredients considered to be harmful to the environment. Shop for eco-friendly products or alternatively, create your own all-purpose cleaning solution using one part water to one part white vinegar.

Cleaning cloths—absorbent and machine washable—will keep counters spotless. Meanwhile, a pack of dryer balls speed up drying time and make your laundry smell fresh and clean.

Seek Sustainable Beauty Options

When it comes to your skincare routine, consider using shampoo bars, which replace liquid bottles with little to no waste, or a bamboo toothbrush, a more eco-friendly option. Reusable makeup cloths also help cut down on waste.

Many beauty brands offer refillable products so you can top up once you’re done. If you have #beautyempties, many brands (like Burt’s Bees and L’Occitane) who have partnerships with TerraCycle will collect your products for recycling.

Consider Clean Beauty

The growing clean beauty category focuses on products that are made with ingredients considered good for us and the environment. The Clean at Sephora initiative, for example, curates makeup, skincare, haircare and fragrance so you can shop with ease.
