COP26 is well under way in our home town of Glasgow and it has got us thinking about all the ways we can #DoOurBit for the environment and help in the fight for climate change.
For those of you who don’t know, COP26 is taking place in Glasgow between the 31st of October until the 12th of November 2021. COP stands for ‘Conference Of the Parties’ and is being attended by Presidents and prime ministers as well as other big names from around the world. The aim of the summit will be to bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, aka a plan on how to save the world! Some decisions made here could directly affect our daily lives.
“Securing a brighter future for our children and future generations requires countries to take urgent action at home and abroad to turn the tide on climate change. It is with ambition, courage and collaboration as we approach the crucial COP26 summit in the UK that we can seize this moment together, so we can recover cleaner, rebuild greener and restore our planet.” – Boris Johnson
Many people might think that climate change is bigger than them - but loads of little changes we can make every day are what is going to make a BIG difference.
a tan that makes a difference
Here at Crazy Angel we are committed to driving change and #DoingOurBit for the environment & world’s oceans by looking at new, innovative packaging solutions. All of our bottles are made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. This will minimise and reduce our need for single use plastics and provide you with peace of mind and some instant good karma.
BUT WHAT IS PCR?
Post-consumer Resin (PCR) is an environmentally-friendly packaging option - PCR plastics are the recycled materials from existing bottles and other plastics that would otherwise end up in landfill or our oceans.
Using these resins not only reduce our impact on landfills, but by reprocessing existing plastics uses less energy and less fossil fuels, saving the environment from excess pollution and wasted resources.
Don’t forget to be a part of the solution and always recycle your old Crazy Angel bottles – simply rinse out your bottle or tube, pop the cap back on and place in your recycling bin! Who knows what it might become in the future…
(Kerbside recycling can vary so make sure to check out your local council for more information.)
online orders with a conscious
We also want to make sure that we are reducing our carbon footprint at every step. So all orders that are placed on our website will be sent in boxes made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper (packaging too!) and contain no traces of plastic.
So there’s no need to feel guilty about this online order.
A TAN YOU PLANT LIVE WITHOUT
At Crazy Angel, all of our products are formulated with only the finest natural ingredients like Vitamin C & E, Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil and Shea Butter, to give you not only the most flawless tanning result, but to leave your skin both super hydrated and nourished. As well as being packed with supercharged, skin-loving ingredients, all of our formulas are also 100% Vegan & always cruelty-free.
WHY GO VEGAN?
A vegan lifestyle isn’t just about saving animals and living a heathier life – did you know that lowering your intake of meat and dairy products is one of the biggest ways to reduce your environmental impact on the planet?
SMALL CHANGES - BIG DIFFERENCE
Here are just a few more small changes you can make to help make a difference and #DoYourBit for climate change;
1. Go Vegan or Vegetarian 1 day a week With animal agriculture being one of the leading causes of climate change, going vegetarian for just ONE day a week can make a huge difference.
2. Leave the car at home - Instead of driving, take the train or bus, or even walk or cycle!
3. Minimise waste - Repair & reuse, donate where you can, avoid food waste & always look out for PCR packaging.
4.Invest in a reusable water bottle or coffee cup for your daily pick me up.
5.Bring reusable bags when shopping - top tip, always leave them in your car or handbag so you can't forget!
So it’s time for us all to start making small changes and doing our bit for climate change, as every effort, no matter how small, WILL make a difference.
