We’ve put together a list of 5 easy and effective ways you can reduce your carbon footprint!
Let’s be honest: none us of really know what to look for in our soaps or shampoos. There are so many different brands out there, each with their own pretty bottle filled with some concoction promising to make you glow, it’s hard to figure out what actually works for you. Plus, despite the branding, most commercial hair and skin care products have a lot of excess chemicals (sulfates, parabens, and more) that hurt you and the environment more than they help. These chemicals can dry out the skin and scalp and sometimes even leave an ugly rash.
Over 7,000 magazines, covering everything from fashion to sports to politics, are currently circulating in the US alone. They all have one thing in common: their contribution to global paper waste.
One way to do your part is by supporting businesses that produce ethical and eco-friendly products and organizations that are working to save our wildlife, wilderness, and more. Many people might think that practicing environmentalism is way out of their reach, but we all make an impact everyday and you can make it positive by supporting sustainability.
Green fashion has a lot of names: sustainable, eco-friendly, the list goes on. But few people can really tell you what it is. At Kala, we want to demystify sustainable apparel once and for all and make it easy for you to go greener.
