Celebrating Captain Planet

earth day
PUBLISHED APR 20, 2018

Because he’s our hero. Earth Day is this weekend, and we’re seeing green. Skimm’rs care about staying environmentally-friendly all year long, but especially now. Here are some of our favorite products to get it done...

For when you’re sweating while spending time outside with Mother Nature...

Freshen up. Native deodorant is au natural but will still make sure your sh*t don’t stink. No aluminum. No ingredients you can’t pronounce. Toxins need not apply. Skimm’bassadors love the coconut and vanilla scent and one said “it keeps you smelling good even after you wash it off.”

For when your new shoes gave you blisters…

Slide into something more comfortable. Rothy’s feel like a slipper but look like a flat. They’re that comfy. And they’re made using recycled material. You’ll find them under multiple Skimm HQ desks. One Skimm’bassador said she “never realized how much my feet hurt until I got relief from my Rothy's.”

For when you run out of soap…

Get your Grove back. Grove’s a subscription service that brings green cleaning products right to your door. Think: that soap you’ve been meaning to refill, that bathroom cleaner you need. Sans harsh chemicals, plus good karma. One Skimm’bassador said “I never have to worry about my ‘must haves’ anymore because they come on a schedule.”

For when you realize your mascara expired months ago…

Time for a new, safer version. Beautycounter is the best way to show face. The company’s banned thousands of chemicals that are used in drugstore beauty products. One Skimm’bassador loves the charcoal cleansing bar and another said it’s “comparable to higher end products like Chanel but at a lower price. And it’s made with safer ingredients.”

For when you ‘have nothing to wear’...

Keep it simple. Aday’s the uniform you wish was required. Think: well-made basics with a twist. And for Earth Day, cash money from some of their items goes towards a charity that provides solar lights to remote parts of the world. Sun’s out, credit card out.

For when you need fresh air but also need to finish a project…

Work with all the colors of the Wynd. The Wynd air purifier tracks the quality of your air, and makes sure you’re breathing clean air, always. Bye, bye, bye, pollution and allergens.

For when your co-worker’s chewing on her straw in a meeting…

That’s the last straw. As in, switch to metal. Metal straws are free of BPAs (hint: the chemical found in plastic that can have negative effects on your health) and they’re better for the environment. Put the ‘purchase’ pedal to the metal.

For when you’re interested in where your food’s been sourced...

Sometimes you don’t want to ask. Other times you don’t have to. Thrive Market’smeat and seafood is all from environmentally responsible farmers. And it won’t break the bank. Meat a good decision.

For when your trash is full of plastic water bottles…

Water you doing? Buying a reusable water bottle is good for Mother Earth, and it looks good too. Especially these S’well bottles. They keep your drinks hot or cold all day long, and one Skimm’bassador said the largest size holds an entire bottle of wine. Cheers.

For when the produce aisle bag is tricky to tear…

Lettuce help. These eco-friendly produce bags do not disappoint. You’ll feel like the most responsible person in Aisle 5.
