Behind the Stick | Episode 25: Earth Day 2021 Special
Written by Amy Kandora April 19, 2021
This week, in honor of Earth Day, we want to highlight the importance of sustainability, specifically in the beauty industry. Since trèStiQue launched in 2015, we’ve made some major strides to become a more sustainable brand:
1. Clean Ocean Collection Le Paks
Our first major step towards sustainability! In an effort to reduce the amount of plastic we send to the ocean, we’ve made 100% of the outer shell of our Clean Ocean Collection makeup bags from one recycled plastic bottle.
2. Cruelty-Free + Clean Formulas
Offering cruelty-free makeup has been a top priority since we started. All our formulas are PETA-certified cruelty-free and are always free of parabens, synthetic fragrance, phthalates, d5, mineral oil, formaldehyde and MUCH more. We follow EU guidelines to eliminate potentially harmful ingredients from our formulas because clean beauty is a must.
3. Ethically Sourced Ingredients
As a beauty brand, we know that the beauty industry has been criticized for unethical sourcing of ingredients that can be harmful to the earth, which is why we ensure our natural ingredients, like the Mica in our Shimmer Shadow Crayons, are ethically sourced.
