Slaying Waste: Love Mama Earth this Earth Day!

Earth Day is here, besties! So, it is time to stand on our soapbox and slay the waste away! George is all about looking hair-flipping good while doing our part for the planet! So, donne your weekly hair mask and grab a cuppa. We're about to get acquainted with being an anti-plastic warrior!

Buy your food at the farmers market:

Why settle for mediocre when you can have the freshest produce straight from the source? Hit up your local farmers market for a delightful array of fruits and veggies. Not only will you be supporting local farmers, but you'll also reduce the carbon footprint associated with transporting food long distances. Plus, those fresh goodies will have your hair shining like never before!

Recycle your haircare bottles when they're finished:

Don't toss those empty shampoo and conditioner bottles in the trash! Instead, please give them a new lease on life by recycling them. Most communities offer recycling programs for plastics, so check with your local waste management facility. Recycling keeps our landfills from overflowing and conserves energy and resources. Your George tube is purposely created with Mama Earth in mind: it's made from sugarcane plastic, a renewable source, unlike traditional plastic that relies on finite crude oil. So, recycle those bottles and let your hair—and the planet—thank you later!

Invest in a keep cup:

Say goodbye to single-use coffee cups and hello to sustainable sipping with a reusable keep cup. Whether a latte lover or a cold brew connoisseur, a keep cup is the perfect accessory for your daily caffeine fix. You can also match your cup to your outfit (slay queen!) Plus, many coffee shops offer discounts when you bring your cup, so you'll save money while saving the planet. Sip, sip, hooray!

Keep an emergency tote bag in your car:

Life can be unpredictable, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for sustainability. Keep an emergency tote bag in your car for those impromptu shopping trips or unexpected errands. Our George Toteis cute AF and spacious enough to hold all your essentials. So, strut into that grocery store like the eco-conscious queen you are and say no to single-use plastic bags!

Repair your clothes/furniture:

Before you toss that torn shirt or wobbly chair, consider giving it a little TLC instead. Learning basic sewing skills or tackling simple furniture repairs can extend the life of your belongings and reduce waste. It's 2024; there is zero excuse not to learn a new skill; there is quite literally a corner of TikTok ready to help you fumble through your next DIY! Plus, there's something incredibly satisfying about breathing new life into old favourites.

Reuse glass jars:

From storing leftovers to organising your beauty supplies, glass jars are a versatile and eco-friendly alternative to plastic containers. So, before tossing that pasta sauce jar in the recycling bin, wash it and put it to good use. Beware – this eco-friendly hack can quickly become a hoarder's haven *quietly closes pantry door*!

There you have it, gorgeous! You'll be slaying waste like a boss this Earth Day. So, let's show Mother Nature some love and keep on shining inside and out. After all, nothing says 'green flag' more than a planet-friendly queen!
