Show the planet some love this Earth Day and check out these best-selling sustainability brands
Earth Day is approaching, and as the world's largest environmental movement, it's responsible for a vast number of events and initiatives which work to drive positive change for the planet. Since its inception in 1970, the global event encourages millions of people to take action towards the environmental crisis in any way that they can, whether it be signing petitions, attending clean-ups, taking part in projects or changing their buying habits.
Speaking of buying habits, we've put together a list of brands which encourage sustainability and take positive steps to reduce their impact on the environment so that you can find your new favourite products while keeping the planet in mind.
Just in time for your spring clean, Bower Collective are determined to make sustainable living simple and accessible for all. Inspired by the Bowerbird who famously recycles brightly coloured plastic scraps to decorate its nest, they're passionate about bringing you sustainable products that look good, keep you and your home clean and reduce waste while doing so. Whether you're looking for bathroom cleaner, toilet tissue, shampoo, laundry liquid, or even lip balm in a range of fresh and natural scents, make sure you're stocked up for the months ahead.
Since Bower products are either plastic-free or arrive in refill packaging, you can decant your household product into one of their reusable dispensers or use one you already have in your home before returning their packing in a pre-paid envelope. These empty pouches are then aggregated for recycling with their specialist partner.
So, what's the impact of using Bower Collective's products? Almost 35,000kg of plastic waste has been saved from landfill and the natural environment while over 100,000㎡ of endangered seagrass has been protected through their partnership with the Marine Conservation Society.
Some of their bestsellers include:
- Bower Body Wash - Beach Coconut
- Bower Washing Up Liquid - Grapefruit
- Bower Toilet Cleaner - Pine & Cedarwood
- Bower Floor Cleaner with Linseed Soap
