Earth day is a special day when everyone around the globe comes together to show their support for the protection of the environment. We're sharing some of our go-to products that are simple, sustainable choices for everyday items, work insanely well, are filled with effective ingredients and are packaged using environment-friendly materials.
Bulldog is the gold standard in showing how easy it is to choose quality products that also protect the environment. They offer a variety of vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly skincare and grooming products that are purposely built for men. In fact, they take sustainability to the next level! Each product is made with natural ingredients, and the body washes and bar soaps specifically contain 100% natural fragrances, while utilizing minimal packaging.
The body wash amber bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic and over the last year the brand also transitioned all product tubes from regular plastic to sugarcane plastic, a renewable resource with minimal impact on food suppliers and biodiversity. One favorite of ours is the bamboo razor. Each razor is built with five tempered steel blades, but what sets it apart is the focus on lowering its environmental impact. From the natural bamboo handle to the un-chromed metal components.
Even the packaging is made from fully recycled stock. Simply put, you’re getting a high-quality shave that doesn’t cost the earth. Visit bulldogskincare.com for more info.
