How Bee Pampered Cares For The Planet & How Small Businesses Can Help

Spring has sprung and April is here! And that means it’s Earth month! The theme of Earth Month for 2022 is “Invest In Our Planet” and that is exactly what Bee Pampered is all about.

An estimated 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, most of which are not recyclable.

There is so much that you can do to Invest In Our Planet, and we’re here to provide you with the best tips and tricks to help run a sustainable, eco-friendly small business.

At Bee Pampered we don’t claim to be perfect but we do try to make the little day to day decisions that we know can make a small difference. Here are some small changes that you can easily do too!

Use Products That Are Reusable & Use Eco-Friendly Packaging

Ditch the plastic and swap the single use products for metal or glass products. Simple things like using glass/stainless steel jars to mix henna bee products or purchasing wooden mascara wands instead of plastic one’s. Small changes like these can make a difference.

Shop Small And Shop Sustainably

When you support other small businesses, you are helping reduce your environmental impact. Oftentimes, shopping locally means products are ordered and shipped in small batches, less steps in the supply chain when sourcing and overall, you help support your community.

Partner With Carbon Off-Set Companies

There are SO many amazing partners that you can work with to help offset your carbon footprint. Working with these amazing companies wont cost you much and can help in ways that you might not have imagined!

Wands for wildlife – by upcycling mascara wands in a number of initiatives such as creating wand art and helping use the wands to care for wildlife, they are keeping harmful plastics out of our landfills!

Green Circle Salons – their award-winning program empowers salons to offset their emissions and recover up to 95% of their beauty waste. From hair clippings to PPE they help repurpose and recycle your salon waste.

What Bee Pampered is doing To Help Save The Planet

  • When sourcing our products we try our best to look for eco friendly packaging and reusable tools

  • All of our shipping supplies are biodegradable, even the packing peanuts!

  • We reuse any plastic packaging that has been unavoidable in our sourcing process 

  • Our Henna Bee eyebrow tints are vegan, cruelty free, and made with 75% natural ingredients that contain NO lead or ammonia

  • We have partnered with Wands For Wildlife. They believe in reusing and upcycling mascara wands in a number of initiatives such as creating wand art and helping use the wands to care for wildlife

  • We are partners with Bee City Canada whose mission is to inspire cities, towns, First Nations, schools, businesses and other organizations to take action to protect pollinators.

  • In summer 2022 we will begin our partnership with Green Circle Salons to keep our salon wastes out of the landfill.

  • If you purchase any Bee Pampered product in the month of April/May, Wildflower bombs are included in your order! These seed bombs are packed with nutrient seeds that grow into flowers to help create pollen for our bees!

So Why Now?

For far too long, single use plastic has been used for consumer goods. Cheap, highly accessible but a huge culprit to damaging our planet. We want the best for future generations to live in a healthy and clean planet. It’s never too late to reverse damage that has been done and restore our carbon footprints. Together, we can make a change.

Here at Bee Pampered, we try our best to help reduce our environmental footprint, so we know that you can too!

And remember, save the freakin bees!
