After 50 plus years of celebrating Earth Day, it's more important than ever to be green. If you're looking for simple changes you can make to your lifestyle in honour of this awareness day, these easy, eco-friendly changes on our list will help guide you. You’ll also be supporting some of the best independent, creative businesses in Cornwall. At Naturally Cornish, our aim is to make it easier for you to lead a more sustainable and thoughtful lifestyle, which is why we only work with ethical brands that align with our environmentally conscious values. We only have one (Mother) Earth, so let's treat her right.
When it comes to sipping sustainably, Land of Saints Gin are leading the way as organic masters. Profits from their organic gin go to supporting David Attenborough's charity Fauna & Flora International, which is the world’s oldest conservation charity. As a truly organic brand, they are also Soil Association Approved and members of the Organisation for Responsible Businesses, meaning that they only ever use the most ethical practices to produce their gin.
And instead of purchasing a new bottle of gin every time - why not buy an eco refill pouch? Tinkture Gin and BORA Botanical Rum offer refillable options so you can reduce waste and can keep reusing their beautiful bottles. Great for you and great for the planet.
Our skincare and cosmetics routine should feel like somewhere to escape to for small acts of self care - and now we can enjoy it even more knowing that these pick-me-ups won’t be costing the earth. A frontrunner in the sustainability stakes is Ma Natural luxury beauty range, with founder Katie Welch handcrafting her magical remedies using local, synthetic-free, organic ingredients, natural botanicals and a no palm oil guarantee. Even the name Ma means Mother Nature - so you know that her ethos is all about protecting, nurturing and being kind towards the environment.
Lower your beauty impact with All Earth Mineral Cosmetics, their products are all vegan, sustainable and conscious. They tick every eco box possible when it comes to their packaging, with the inner casing and sifter from their foundation pots being made from 100% recycled fishing nets. They will last forever and are easily replenished with their biodegradable and recyclable makeup refills. Genius.
For an Eco-friendly Home
At Naturally Cornish, we only support Cornish makers and products that are made right here in this coastal county, which helps to support our local economy whilst reducing carbon footprint. A great way to start living more consciously is by making your living space greener. A small step is to switch your candles - as many are actually very toxic for the environment - for an eco-friendly alternative that you can burn without a conscience. With a collection of rich aromatic scents, eco-friendly containers, and ethical production practices, Keynvor Candle Co outshine the rest, with founder Brad Reynolds priding his business on being completely plastic-free. Sustainability has never smelt so great.
Every purchase at Naturally Cornish goes to supporting social and environmental causes in Cornwall, as we donate 1% of our proceeds to our partner’s chosen charities. Let’s make a difference together.
