Go Green for St. Patrick’s Day

St.Patrick’s Day is fast approaching and we’re putting a Cohorted Cult twist on it! What better time to consider your carbon footprint than with our top Vegan Beauty, Haircare and Fashion brands. So, channel your inner Saint Paddy and go green the right way this year.

The Fashion and Beauty industries are finally waking up to the importance of sustainability and 2020 has been no stranger to some life-altering events; for example, the Australian bushfires that were caused by the intense rise of extreme heat and prolonged drought due to global warming. Now, more than ever, should be the time we encourage and approach a more sustainable, eco-friendly and green way of living.

Below is our guide to living your best sustainable life, so we can continue to do the better good for our planet.
