If we gave as much attention to sustainability as we did to our skin-care routines, could we solve the current climate crisis?
Millennials are no strangers when it comes to looking after themselves – and that’s proven by the 10-billion dollar self-care industry we continue to pour our hard-earned dollars into. The good news is that there are organizations and brands out there who are making it possible to take care of yourself while you take care of the planet. We connected with Live Green Perks to get the scoop on which brands in Toronto are making it possible to satisfy your self-care needs that won’t mess with the needs of the planet. Below are three deals from the Live Green Perks app you can redeem in the city.
Pure + Simple operates sustainably with reusable products that above all prioritize client health. Their bottle return policy allows you to return packaging that they reuse after sterilization. We love that their products are made from sustainable materials or methods.

We love that Fresh City Farms grows some of their produce organically at their two urban farms and also that they go the extra mile to source local, organic, sustainable and fair trade products. They even have a member farmer program has launched dozens of food entrepreneurs, activists and farmers over the last 8 growing seasons. Because of this program, Toronto is a little greener through reduced water runoff, and city dwellers are that much more educated on where and how their food is grown.

You’d be blown away by how much water is needed to produce one garment – for a pair of leggings up to 8 hot tubs of water is usually needed!

Designer brands are upcycled in fresh ways into new wardrobes, which saves clothing from landfills. Show the Live Green Perks app to get 20% in-store, but hold up: from 6-8pm on Wednesday, November 27 Live Green Perks users will have exclusive access to the store and receive 40% off clothing and shoes.
