AT GREENER BEAUTY WE ARE REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT USING GREENER BEAUTY TO SUPPORT THE CHARITIES THAT WE LOVE AND FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT. WE DONATE 10% OF OUR PROFITS ACROSS THESE CHARITIES AND YOU CAN EVEN SUPPORT THEM BY ADDING A DONATION TO ONE OR ALL OF THE CHARITIES AT CHECKOUT.

THESE ARE THE CHARITIES THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY SUPPORTING:

HUGLETTS WOOD FARM SANCTUARY

Hugletts Wood Farm sanctuary is a vegan animal sanctuary based in Heathfield, East Sussex. Run by the lovely Wenda and Matt. They provide sanctuary to cows and their friends. A home for life to farm animals and birds, rescued from the misery of the meat and dairy industry and the horrors of the slaughterhouse.

Hugletts try to self-fund as much as possible, growing vegetables and fruits and producing a whole range of woodland products and natural Ahimsa compost but always welcome support in whatever form it may take!

VICS THOUGHTS:

To me Hugletts feels like a really special place. I sponsor Yogi the sheep and Judha the cow at Hugletts. It is a place where the animals truly come first. Not a petting zoo or farm where people can just visit the animals, there are a limited number of open days a year and they have a strict number of tickets available. If you have ever been I am sure you will agree that it is a truly magical place. This is the reason why we always have a Hugletts donation pot at every event we do and why they are top of our list of charities.

SEA SHEPHERD UK

Sea Shepherd is a marine conservation charity that runs many direct action campaigns all over the world to protect marine life. Whether its protecting seals from being shot at salmon farms in Scotland, removing fish nets from the oceans, saving dolphins and whales from being slaughtered in the Faroes, the list is long! They protect all marine life from the smallest plankton and krill up to the largest whales. And they are successful in doing so! Sea Shepherd is a volunteer lead movement so all money raised actually funds campaigns and not in some fat cats pocket.

VICS THOUGHTS:

I have been a senior volunteer for Sea Shepherd UK since 2014. I have taken part in 3 campaigns to save marine life; as a Cove Guardian in Taiji Japan, the Grindstop campaign in the Faroe islands and the Seal Defence campaign in Scotland. As a scuba diver and self confessed mermaid I have a deep love for the ocean. I have seen first hand the devastation that fishing and exploitation of the oceans is causing. Sea Shepherd are a very effective direct action marine conservation charity and it was only right that they should be featured as one of the Greener Beauty charities.

ANIMAL JUSTICE PROJECT

Animal Justice Project is a non-parofit organisation founded in 2014 dedicated to ending animal experiments and promoting veganism. They are working to create a society where all animals are treated equally, with compassion and respect. They are the UK’s only animal rights organisation that focuses predominantly on ending animal experiments that are conducted on university campuses. Almost half of all animal experiments are carried out by universities.

By bringing to light the realities of vivisection and farming industries through advocacy, education, outreach, and research – they aim to create a more just and peaceful world for all.

VICS THOUGHTS

I am so excited to be able to support the Animal Justice Project. When you buy products from Greener Beauty you are saving animals by not buying products that are either tested on them or contain animal ingredients. With a donation to Animal Justice at checkout you are also helping the animals that are currently in labs being tested on. Its next level vegan beauty!

VEGANUARY

If you haven’t heard of Veganuary where have you been living? A UK based charity that launched in 2014 that encourages people worldwide to try vegan for January and beyond. Their reach has been amazing with a quarter of a million people taking part in 2019. They provide daily emails, recipes and support for anyone trying a vegan diet.

VICS THOUGHTS

It is hard to talk about veganism and charities without thinking of Veganuary and the amazing work that they have done since they launched in 2014. Every January the amount of support and encouragement Veganuary offer to anyone who is going vegan for the month is incredible and is really helping to grow the vegan movement. This year (2020) that was a rather epic 402,206 people from 192 countries signing-up to take part.

BREAST CANCER UK

One in seven women will get breast cancer at some point in their life. However, studies suggest if you make changes to your lifestyle your risk of getting breast cancer could be significantly reduced. Breast Cancer UK has analysed the latest findings on breast cancer and its prevention, to provide guidance on how to reduce your risk of developing the disease.

The mission of Breast Cancer UK is to prevent breast cancer through education, scientific research, collaboration and policy change.

54,000 women a year in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer and a quarter of these cases are preventable through lifestyle changes. That means over 13,000 cases of breast cancer could be prevented, saving millions of lives, avoiding unnecessary suffering and reducing the cost to NHS by approximately £1.5 billion a year.

VICS THOUGHTS

Breast Cancer Care are an amazing charity that are really promoting the use of Clean Beauty products as a preventative measure. This really aligns with what we believe here at Greener Beauty and is one of the reasons we support them as one of our charities.

STEPHEN LAWRENCE CHARITABLE TRUST

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust aims to create a fairer society for all through career, community, and social initiatives for young people aged 13-30 in the UK. The organisation honours Black British teenager Stephen Lawrence who was murdered in a racist attack in 1993.

Too many young people still struggle to succeed because they are disadvantaged by factors beyond their control, such as where they are born, the school they go to, or any discrimination they may face. At the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, they don’t accept that your background should limit what you can achieve. They work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds aged 13 to 30 to broaden their view of what’s possible. They help them to gain the knowledge, skills, and qualifications they need to pursue the career of their choice, and then support them to progress through the early stages of their career.

More information can be found here: https://www.stephenlawrence.org.uk/

VICS THOUGHTS

I think there is a lot more that we can all do to help promote a fairer society for everyone and not just the few privileged ones. Unfortunately what happened to Stephen Lawrence all those years ago is still happening in the UK and its charities like the one set up in his name that are making a huge difference to the young people who need it most in the UK. Definitely one that is worthy of our support

Working together and supporting these incredible charities we can really make the world a better place for everyone who is inhabiting this world with us.

Imagine, you can help change and shape the world we live in while buying a toothbrush!

No donation is too small!

BUY A TREAT

PLANT A TREE

For every Greener Beauty customer order we plant one tree. This is part of our ongoing effort to lower our carbon footprint and build a better world. We work with an American Charity called Eden Reforestation who plant trees globally where they are most needed. They hire, train and employ local people at a fair wage who then plant trees native to their land and protect the seedlings and eventually the forests. As a result of their careful nurturing they have an 80% seedling survival rate. This gives the local people a consistent income enabling them to provide for their families, and as the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests emerge and the negative effects of deforestation disappear. Since Eden Reforestation began over 250 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique. To further negate the carbon footprint of Greener Beauty HQ we also plant 15 trees a month per member of staff. Always ethical. Always vegan. Always Greener Beauty.
