Ethical Living: Preserve Razor

As you may have seen in my bamboo toothbrush post, I'm trying to purchase items that are sustainable, as well as cruelty free. When it comes to razors, reusable handles are the most environmentally friendly option, and this little fella takes it a step further by being made from recycled materials.

Ethical Fashion Brand List

As I mentioned in my Rapanui post, I'm trying to be much more conscious when it comes to fashion. I want to purchase my clothes from ethical sources, making sure they are both fair trade and environmentally friendly.

One easy way to shop ethically is buying from charity or vintage shops - your money is going to a good cause, and you're helping to reduce the extreme waste caused by fast fashion. (The clothing industry is the second largest global polluter, only being beaten by oil), but there are also a growing number of ethical brands out there, so I though I would try and collate as many as possible in one place. This post has gained its own tab on my blog navigation bar, and I'll keep it updated as I stumble across new ethical fashion gems.

Do let me know if you have any favorites, or any other additions for the list! :)

Makeup: B. Cruelty Free and Vegan Lipstick

I've been blogging for a few years now, but I'm pretty sure that this is my first ever make up post! On a day to day basis I'm not a massive make-up wearer, but I do like to have fun with it on special occasions, and every now and then when it takes my fancy. I have a good basic cruelty free collection, so I will try and do a few more makeup posts, but I do tend to stick to my favorites and not branch out too much! This is the first item from B. that I've tried, and I've heard pretty mixed reviews, but I was really pleasantly surprised with this little purchase.

Ethical Living: Bamboo Toothbrushes

I had a post uni clear out a few weeks ago and the amount of rubbish one person can accumulate really made me stop and think. I've always tried to be conscious about my environmental footprint, but this has really encouraged me to put more effort into making ethical decisions. Reducing the amount of waste you produce however, doesn't have to be hard work, and this little bamboo toothbrush is a super easy way to do just that.

One person will typically get through over 300 toothbrushes during the course of their life, and that's one big landfill pile. The plastic wont break down during our lifetime, but bamboo toothbrushes are both biodegradable and environmentally sustainable.
