Tee time

Earth-lovers, meet your new favorite tee. From the brand Reformation, this sweet, short-sleeved style features our perfect planet pictured on its front. In addition to being a cool clothing piece, the sale of the style sees 50 per cent of proceeds donated to the non-profit organization Accelerating Circularity, which turns “spent textiles” into reusable raw materials.

For the littles

Earth outerwear elements are on offer for kids thanks to the Montreal-based brand Miles the Label. The company’s recently launched lineup of rain gear is made entirely of 100 per cent organic cotton and recycled polyurethane. We love the Dalmatian Dot Print on Light Pink Rain Bucket Hat, which also sees a matching raincoat and overalls included in the range.

Sweet sweaters

From the Canadian brand Roots, the gender-free sweater aims to celebrate the company’s “commitment to Earth.” Dubbed the Re-Issue 91 Earth Crew Sweatshirt, the design features an archival graphic that dates to 1991, and is made from unbleached, organic cotton and recycled materials.

Beauty buy

Not just for Earth Day, but rather for every day, Lush’s Naked Products offer a zero-waste alternative to packaged self-care solutions such as bath foam and shampoos. This Jason and the Argan Oil Shampoo Bar features Moroccan argan oil to moisturize strands. The lemon-rose-scented shampoo bar is good for up to 80 washes and replaces up to three 250-milliliter liquid shampoo bottles from the waste stream.
