Earth day is every day when you are a sustainable fashion company that strives to reduce their carbon footprint and support their community. I wanted to do just that and my process for achieving these goals started years ago. I became certified carbon neutral in 2015 with a wonderful company called PaleBlueDot LLC and we are searching for more companies to connect with to continue to do our part.
“Lipstick Killers Collection, a quality, hand-made apparel line that celebrates the strength and courage of women, announced they have been awarded the BLUEdot Certified Carbon Neutral certification. Certification was reached as a result of comprehensively assessing and eliminating the carbon footprint of the entire clothing line’s supply chain and operations.
The BLUEdot certification assures a net zero carbon emission for every Lipstick Killers Collection clothing purchase from raw materials to delivery to the end customer.” – Press Release
What is intersectional environmentalism? From the website https://www.intersectionalenvironmentalist.com/ it means an inclusive form of environmentalism advocating for the protection of all people + the planet. Derived from the work of the Combahee River Collective + later, Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, intersectional environmentalism identifies the ways in which injustices targeting frontline communities + the earth are intertwined.
Conversations within environmental spaces cannot minimize or ignore the injustices targeting vulnerable communities + natural ecosystems, but rather denote the ways social inequalities influence our perception of environmentalism, regardless of how subtle or obvious. In this way, intersectional environmentalism calls for justice for people + the planet. And I could not agree more! It’s like intersectional environmentalism is my spirit animal ; ) I have taken the pledge!
