Love Beauty and Planet’s #PlanItforthePlanet Campaign is showing the power of vegan beauty when harnessed for good. ‘Tis the season of holiday shopping and scavenging for that perfect gift for everyone on your list. If you are anything like us, chances are that you are browsing the web for the ideal present and hoping to score fast shipping so that you can check ‘gift shopping’ off your list of things to do.
What if we told you that on average rush shipping generates approximately 40% more carbon emissions than standard shipping? That means that shopping early and choosing standard shipping over rush allows you to perform a small act of love for the planet.
The Power of Vegan Beauty
By finishing up your online shopping before December 4th and not selecting next-day or same-day delivery, you will be giving one hefty holiday present to the planet.
The Carbon Footprint of Rush Shipping
If we all work together by shopping early, we can avoid up to 2.4 million tons of carbon emissions. Until December 4th, Love Beauty and Planet is promising to donate $19.99 (the average cost of rush shipping) for every use of the #PlanItforthePlanet hashtag on social media.
“We were stunned to see the planet impact that rush shipping can have and knew we had to lead with action,” says Sonika Malhotra, Senior Global Brand Director of Love Beauty and Planet. “We love the spirit behind #PlanItForPlanet and how easy it is for holiday shoppers to participate with this small act of love for the planet.”
Love Beauty and Planet will donate up to $150,000 to the National Forest Foundation’s reforestation efforts, which will help plant 150,000 trees in the U.S.
