For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with animals, plants, and the earth as a whole. I’ve just always been so fascinated by the natural world and felt this deep connection to it. A baby tree-hugger, I guess you could say. As a child, I refused to eat meat and loved doing anything outdoors—gardening, playing in the woods, making magical concoctions from plants (that I am so glad no one consumed because I had literally no idea what I was doing lol). My mom is an incredibly compassionate woman and had a big part in shaping my interests, but I also know that we are all born with unique souls, unique personalities, and unique purposes. And, I believe one of mine is to fight for these things.
We are so lucky to live in this time of advanced technology, medicine, food, and entertainment, but along with all of our amazing growth and conveniences comes disadvantages, too. Most products and companies on Earth produce their own set of toxins and waste that immediately affect our environment in a negative way. From dangerous pollution to excessive amounts of waste and by-products, it’s no secret that our planet, health and animals are suffering the impact. And, I don’t know about you, but I would like to keep our world as beautiful, healthy, and safe as possible. That’s why it’s so important to be mindful of our actions and responsibilities, and make conscious lifestyle changes to improve and preserve the only planet we have. Businesses have the ability to have a positive impact on the world and local communities, as well, and The Earthling Co. is one of them.
This brand is dedicated towards creating positive change to our world by providing sustainable, eco-friendly options to every day products, and by spreading the message of living consciously and harmoniously with nature. After all, that’s what we’re here to do. From low-waste, ethically-made, reusable home essentials and personal care to inspiring apparel and pet necessities, The Earthling Co. has something for everyone. The brand also takes big strides to make it easier and less overwhelming for those wanting to switch to a more mindful, earth-friendly lifestyle with tons of essential, insightful educational content.
I first fell in love with them when I stumbled upon their “Protect our planet” tee that really just says it all. I’m not always a fan of statement tees, but they do it in a really cool, respectful way. I think now, more than ever, is the time to be open and sharing the message of how much our planet truly needs us, and something as little as wearing an intentional tee could be just the push someone needs to consider changing their habits.
I also really, *really* love their lotion bars and pet shampoo bars. They both come in an easy-to-tote, reusable tins that keep them fresh, and is WAY easier to store and pack than regular lotion and shampoo bottles. The lavender lotion smells incredible, and the calendula is incredibly calming and soothing. The texture is somewhere between a body butter and a silky salve, but it melts nicely into your hands and spreads well. The pet shampoo bar foams up nicely, has a clean, simple, earthy scent that’s not overpowering (which is important, so it isn’t too much for the pups!), and it leaves them feeling super soft. And, actually, one of my dogs has been suffering from dandruff lately and he doesn’t have any now that we’ve switched to this bar!
This is my second favorite tee of theirs. Butterflies have always been really special and magical to me, and I just love the cheeky design. They also have this in a *BooBee* tee! ＼(＾▽＾)／ PS. Their tees are on sale right now so it’s a great time to stock up!
I love love love supporting companies like this and always looking for more. What are some of your favorite eco-friendly brands?
