World Ocean Day: 5 brands that love the oceans

To protect our planet starting from our beauty case

World Ocean Day: 5 brands that love the oceans To protect our planet starting from our beauty case

The ocean has been asking for our help for quite some time. An appeal for respect for its flora and fauna, a request for protection from overfishing, from toxic waste such as plastic, UV filters and diesel. Yet many of us still do not listen to its desperate echo, unaware of the consequences - even on our own skin - of a world without seas and its inhabitants. Thus, June 8th is a reminder for everyone: in fact, World Ocean Day is celebrated, or the world day of the oceans that wants to remind us that we still have 29 years to avoid the apocalypse. Because the oceans are the life blood of the planet, they regulate the climate and generate over 50% of the oxygen we breathe. To help them, start by saying stop to single-use plastic, opt for water bottles and start shopping sensibly, on platforms completely focused on sustainability, like Talia Collective which, for the oceans, has created a fundraising in favor of the ONG Parley for the Oceans. And then, pay attention to what we put in our beauty case. Why not try, for example, these 5 beauty brands that really love the sea?

By purchasing, from 1 June to 30 August, the products of the SU line - in bio-based PE plastic from sugar cane - will activate the donation of 1 euro to the Siso Operation of Sea Shepherd Italia Onlus, whose volunteers, in collaboration with the Coast Guard, identify illicit FADs poached by illegal fishermen and remove them.
