When it comes to living more eco-consciously, nothing is more sustainable than supporting local business. Beyond these companies creating jobs and bolstering our economies, our carbon footprint is substantially lower when we shop closer to home and limited shipping is involved.
Los Angeles is a landscape synonymous with movie star perfection and A-list glamour, but beyond its glossy facade lies a different story. As a beach city, LA is at the forefront of conservation efforts for the environment - especially our oceans - and is a pioneer in eco-conscious fashion and beauty, instrumental in inspiring sustainable style trends around the world.
Being LA, the priority is always to look good, but it has never been easier to choose earth-friendly products that don’t compromise our style. From a hand-made, peace-vibe, clutch purse to a magical, nutrient-rich, anti-aging serum, there are multiple brands with incredible products to keep us looking our best. Here are some of our home-grown favorites that let us shine like a star, while protecting our beautiful planet.
