April is Earth Month, so what better time to focus on the green scene? Though we’re eco-conscious, we admit we’re not full-on save-the-world granola types. But we do love doing our part by sorting our bottles and cans, turning off lights, buying organic foods (and bagging them in our re-usable Bliss totes).
And while we won’t pretend that all our products were plucked straight from an organic farm, there are brands that really go the whole nine natural yards. We know that lately, everyone on the beauty scene is sprouting the word “green” so you might be perplexed about what it means. That’s why we’ve identified the extent of our ec-consciousness for each product line (from “pure and simple” to “our employees only drive electric cars”).
