What Brands Are Doing For Sustainability

Read on and find out what companies – new and old – are doing to help save the Earth. After all, it’s the only home we have! 

Here at Cohorted we are passionate about sustainability, and we’re not the only ones! In recent years more and more brands across a wide range of industries have adopted greener practices and we are absolutely here for it. Read on and find out what companies – new and old – are doing to help save the Earth. After all, it’s the only home we have.

BEAUTY

The Body Shop

The Body Shop has committed to launching 400 refill stations globally in 2021, with another 400 in 2022, in order to reduce packaging and waste. Customers can grab an aluminum bottle in-store and choose to fill and refill from many of their most popular products, including haircare, shower gels and hand washes. Given that the beauty industry globally produces more than 120 billion units of packaging every single year, this scheme could not have come sooner.

John Lewis

John Lewis launched their excellent BeautyCycle scheme in 2019. Not only does it reduce waste by providing customers a chance to recycle their packaging, it also includes a reward of £5 off a future beauty purchase when you’ve returned five empty containers. So far the scheme has stopped 231,000 products from ending up in landfill. Good for the planet and your pocket! It’s a win win

H&M

H&M are showing their dedication to being green through their Conscious initiative. Clothes that have the ‘Conscious’ label are made up of at least 50% sustainable materials, and pop up throughout their other ranges. The brand also recycles clothes (by any brand) via recycling boxes in stores all around the world, and has done so since 2013. In 2019 the Garment recycling scheme collected 29,005 tons of fabric. That’s a lot of clothes!

TALA

TALA is a fashion brand founded on ideas of sustainable style. As well as pledging to never send products to landfill and only working with suppliers with transparent and ethical practices, the tags on TALA clothes are all plantable. Each one contains seasonal seeds, so every product allows you to grow a different plant, and give something  back to mother nature. Absolutely adorable.

LIFESTYLE

Who Gives a Crap

Who Gives a Crap is a toilet paper brand with a difference. They offer bulk purchases of tree free and recycled paper, wrapped in fun, recyclable packaging. They also donate 50% of their profits to build toilets for people across the world who don’t have access to proper sanitation, because ‘access to a safe, dignified loo is a basic human right’.

OceanSaver

OceanSaver is a cleaning company on a mission: reducing plastic pollution in the ocean (the clue’s in the name). Their groundbreaking EcoDrops dissolve in water, removing the problem of having to buy a new plastic bottle every time you need more cleaning products. The genius of adding the water yourself at home also means OceanSaver has a smaller carbon footprint than other brands, who need more delivery lorries to get their pre-diluted, plastic heavy products to supermarkets.

FOOD & DRINK

Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry’s have been working to reduce their carbon footprint for years, and even participated in the People’s Climate March in New York in 2014. One of its factories in the Netherlands is powered by the delightfully named ‘Chunkinator’, a reactor which turns waste products from the ice cream making process into energy, which then powers the creation of more ice cream. That’s sustainability 101.

THIS

THIS is a UK based food company specialising in delicious (to the point of being confusing) meatless meat, made using soybean protein, pea protein and water. Aside from the obvious upside of no animals being harmed in the making of their product, they also have significantly lower CO2 emissions than meat and use low plastic packaging. Worth trying – just one day a week of avoiding meat and dairy products massively reduces your own carbon footprint.
