Repost from my spirit animal @captainlizclark. Much like Liz, I have my own story about finding the brand and getting involved and could not be any more stoked about it. So much love for the Wilkinson fam.
Plastic-free packaging! Congratulations to Chris and Lisa of @loveavasol for being invited to the @openideo Circular Design Challenge asking, How can we get products to people without plastic waste? I was in love with this sunscreen the moment I tried it, how it felt, how it worked, and how it was packaged without plastic. When I met Chris and his family a year or so later, his passion for creating a healthy, more sustainable sunscreen was so thorough, i found myself rethinking my own life habits! This recycled paper tube didn't happen overnight. When Chris couldn't find anyone to make one to his environmental standards, he decided to design and build it himself. He and Lisa perfected it through testing, and CREATED their own solution in their grassroots laboratory. Their liquid sunscreen comes in packaging that reduces plastic by 90% too! Not to mention that the ingredients inside are truly natural--no oxybenzone or ANY chemical UV blockers, no nano-particle mineral UV blockers either. Don't be tricked by all the greenwashing in the sunscreen world these days--read & research ingredients, if it's 'mineral' and it rubs on clear it contains nano-particles-- labeling of nanos is not required. Being a conscious consumer helps drive markets toward sustainability, so we can all help by supporting people who are implementing real solutions to the plastic crisis. Thank you @loveavasol for leading the charge!
