We love that Target has been such an advocate of sustainability at a corporate level by intentionally promoting sustainable and eco-friendly product options on their shelves. As we as conscious consumers purchase these products, we give Target (and other major retailers) our vote of support to continue to champion this movement. Here are some of our favorite sustainable brands you can feel good about supporting at Target:
Weleda makes our top cut with its commitment to environmental consciousness. They are driven by sustainable sourcing, packaging, and products made from raw material ingredients that come from organic and biodynamic farming. In manufacturing, Weleda makes incredible efforts to reduce water consumption and most of their energy comes from renewable sources.
Try this! Weleda Skin Food Skin Cream, it's a great treatment for those rough, dry areas like hands, feet and elbows.
We admire Method's innovative Benefit Blueprint, created to plan goals and guide their eco-friendly and sustainability mission. Their five metric scores they publish annually include: B-Corp score (business classification that maximizes human benefit, not just profit), Compass of Clean score (measures impacts on human health, ingredient sourcing and packaging optimization), carbon footprint, water usage, and waste footprint.
Try this! Method All-Purpose Cleaner, Lime & Sea Salt, with non-toxic, biodegradable ingredients you can feel good about using in your home.
Alba Botanica is a top-tier earth-friendly brand. Their products are cruelty-free, 100% vegetarian, biodegradable and reef friendly.
Try this! Alba Botanica Acnedote Face & Body Scrub provides a natural, plant-based treatment and prevention of breakouts.
Burt's Bees commitment to sustainability runs deep. Any brand founded entirely out of concern for the health of the humble honeybee deserves some serious kudos. They have an Associate Director of Responsible Sourcing that investigates sourcing and traceability across their entire supply chain. Almost 90% of their packaging is made with recyclable materials and they offer a Recycle On Us program where used packaging can be sent back to Burt's Bees headquarters and be directly recycled.
Try this: Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment. Your lips will thank you in the morning.
Saalt is committed to changing the way women throughout the world approach period care. By using medical-grade silicone menstrual cups to care for period needs instead of cotton, thousands of tampons, plastic applicators and pads are diverted from landfills and our oceans each year. One cup diverts as much as 3000 tampons and pads over its lifespan! And because each menstrual cup lasts up to 10 years, cups not only save money for consumers, but also save in manufacturing energy and production costs for those truckloads of one-time use period products.
Annie's has become a recognizable brand that symbolizes organic goodness and sustainability. We love that Annie's tracks and publishes their annual impact on climate change, water consumption, biodiversity, and toxic chemicals to show their unquestionable commitment to eco-friendly practices. They carefully source their ingredients as they believe that is their biggest opportunity for positive impact.
Try this! Shells & White Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese, one of Annie's bestsellers.
Pacifica products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They take their commitment to eco-friendly practices seriously with their very own recycling program. You can give those empty containers some post-consumption love by sending them back (with a prepaid shipping label) for a second chance at life.
Try this! Pacifica Coconut-Infused Mineral Eye Shadow.
Green Toys is a toy brand that is manufactured from recycled milk jugs. They are committed to teaching children about recycling and showing children and adults alike that it's possible to create quality products from recycled goods. Green Toys are packaged with 100% recyclable cardboard, a feat that earned them the Greener Packaging Award.
Try this: Construction Truck Set
SheaMoisture carefully sources its all-natural product ingredients to ensure their raw materials are ethically traded and sustainably produced. Their products also use certified free-trade ingredients.
Try this! 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Body Oil, great for all-over moisturizing.
Seventh Generation believes we all have a responsibility for not only our generation, but the next seven generations. They take this responsibility seriously as evidenced by their renewable plant-based ingredients and commitment to recycled and recyclable packaging.
Try this! Free & Clear Natural Liquid Detergent-it's tough on stains but gentle on your skin and the world.
