By now, you know that animal agriculture increases greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change. But that’s not the only way eating meat affects the environment. According to PETA, raising animals for food is the number-one source of water pollution. And the meat industry is directly responsible for 85 percent of all soil erosion in the U.S.
These are just a few of the many reasons CLEAN has created animal-free products for the past 17 years. Since 2003, our vegan and cruelty-free fragrances have been infused with responsibly sourced, sustainable ingredients and crafted without harsh chemicals you’d find in other perfumes and cosmetics.
Here’s how to make a difference:
Try Meatless Mondays
It’s not easy making an overnight switch to going vegan, so a great way to start is by introducing a meat-free night for just one day. Not sure where to begin? We love these recipe round-ups at Delish and Bon Appetit. Each week, you’ll discover new recipes that make going vegan more fun and attainable. You might love it so much that you’ll end up loading up on healthy veggies beyond Monday.
So you’ve already greened your plate, but have you considered your closet? Animal products are all over the fashion world, from leather bags to snakeskin shoes. The next time you’re tempted by that leather moto jacket, try a faux version instead. Your wallet (and planet) will thank you.
Green Your Routine
Unfortunately, most fragrances are made with animal byproducts or tested on animals. P.E.T.A. estimates that in America, more than 100 million animals are killed every year as a result of animal testing. We combat those horrible numbers by creating animal-free, vegan products that are never tested on animals. Plus, our eco-conscious packaging features recyclable paper and compostable corn-based cellophane to reduce our eco footprint.
