Sometimes it’s necessary to get serious and remind ourselves why sustainability is important.
The UK government has recently approved two new oil and gasfields in the North Sea which will be major setbacks for the nation’s climate goals. The UK has committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, but the extraction of oil and gas from these fields will lock in emissions for decades to come.
In addition to the climate impacts, the development of these fields will also have a devastating impact on the environment. The extraction of oil and gas from these fields will pollute the sea and disrupt marine habitats.
The development of new oil and gasfields is a clear example of why we need to transition to a more sustainable economy. Sustainable businesses like White Rabbit Skincare operate in a way that focuses on minimising the environmental impact of an e-commerce business, which in turn contributes to the long-term health of the planet.
In fact, one of the biggest factors that influenced me in founding White Rabbit was the alarming trend of many businesses overlooking the importance of environmental-friendliness. Seeing this recent news about the North Sea gasfields reminds me why these issues are so important.
The beauty industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. It produces a lot of waste, and it uses a lot of natural resources. This is a major problem, because the beauty industry is also one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.
It might seem pretty harmless at first glance, but the sad reality is that the beauty industry unfortunately contributes to issues such as air, plastic and water pollution, as well as deforestation. When certain brands use unnecessary valuable resources, such as palm oil or excessive amounts of water, and cause harm to the planet through irresponsible means of production and improper waste disposal, the environmental impact can be severe.
But sustainable businesses such as ours use renewable, natural resources and produce less polluting waste. Our products are made with natural ingredients, and they are packaged in recyclable materials, and we also offer refill programs for its products, which helps to reduce waste.
By using White Rabbit Skincare, you can also be sure that you are using products that are good for your skin and the planet.
