Earth Day 2019 Promises

It's the 49th annual Earth Day this year. Even though I've spent the day cooped up inside in an attempt to chip away at my university work, I find Earth Day an important time for some much-needed reflection. Earth Day started with a huge and brilliantly effective protest against the devastating effects of industrial development, and has since snowballed into a yearly day of action against climate change. Whether you're signing a petition or writing to your MP, volunteering at a community clean-up or joining a protest, there's a million ways to join in with Earth Day. Today, I've decided to make some promises to our beautiful planet.

I've been keeping a close eye on the progress of the new Lush store, and as someone who lives in Liverpool and loves ethical beauty, it's all been incredibly exciting! I was so thrilled when it was announced to be the largest Lush store in the whole world, right here in my city. Every new reveal had me buzzing with anticipation, so you can only imagine my joy when an email landed in my inbox asking me to come along to the grand opening. My giddy excitement aside, Lush have truly bowled me over!

What’s the point in moving towards a more sustainable life if you’re getting started by adding to a landfill? It can be done, and here are some tips on how to minimalise your possessions and your environmental impact.
