Earth Month is finally here. That means now—more than ever—is the time to prioritize the planet. From creating more sustainable habits to getting involved in environmental initiatives, there are several ways to show your love for the planet. And speaking of creating new habits, now might be the time to adjust your shopping habits, too: After all, conscious consumerism is on the rise.
According to GreenPrint, about 77% of American consumers care about how environmentally friendly their products are. And 78% are more likely to make a purchase if the products are labeled as eco-friendly. The only question is: How do we know whether a product is eco-friendly?
Shopping ethically and sustainably doesn’t have to be hard. Luckily, the Brightly Shop has got you covered. If you’re not sure where to begin, check out our limited-time products for April. These products are focused on giving back to the planet, and 5% of all sales this month go back to the Planet Bee Foundation.
Because these products are limited-time, they won’t be in the shop for long. Get them before they’re gone!
