The shift towards sustainable living is undeniable. There are an increasing number of reasons for the shift. Increased environmental concern is seen in extreme climates and weather conditions. The ethical notion of social responsibility also plays a role.

The link between health and natural ingredients encourages a cleaner lifestyle. Finally, supporting businesses that align with sustainable values also plays its part. Sustainability isn't just a choice anymore. It's a responsibility, and we at Empress Naturals understand this better than most.

Why has sustainability become the norm?

A 2020 McKinsey survey found that over 60% of consumers prefer sustainable brands. 

Environmental Impact Awareness

In today's world, environmental concern is no longer a fringe concern. Instead, it's a mainstream movement. People have become more aware of the consequences of their daily choices on the planet. This awareness has led to a growing demand for eco-friendly products and brands.

Consumers seek out items with a lower carbon footprint and sustainable sourcing practices. They recognize that by choosing sustainability, they play a role in mitigating harm. They want to preserve ecosystems and combat climate change. This heightened environmental impact awareness is reshaping the market. It allows for innovation toward a more sustainable and eco-conscious future.

Social Responsibility

Consumers today not only scrutinize the products they buy. They also focus on the values and practices of the companies behind them. Social responsibility has emerged as a paramount consideration in the consumer's decision-making process. Ethical practices, fair employee treatment, and safe working conditions guide brand loyalty.

A report by Capgemini found that 77% of consumers remain loyal to businesses with a social pledge. Consumers support companies that focus on these values. They want their choices to contribute to a more fair society. 

Health Considerations

Health consciousness goes hand in hand with sustainability. Consumers are aware of the connection between their health and the products they use. Sustainable products are often synonymous with healthier alternatives.

Consumers understand the harmful effects of chemicals found in conventional products. This knowledge fuels the demand for natural, organic, and toxin-free options. By choosing sustainable products, consumers reduce their environmental footprint. They also focus on their own health. This allows them to make informed choices that benefit everyone.

Support for Local Businesses

The appeal of sustainability extends beyond environmental and personal considerations. It carries significant economic implications. Many consumers are choosing to support sustainable small for several reasons. 

There's a desire to bolster local economies and promote community growth. Secondly, sustainable businesses often adopt ethical and fair practices, aligning with consumers' values. This alignment fosters brand loyalty. Consumers appreciate businesses that share their commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.

It's worth noting that this trend is not confined to one generation. Gen X consumers’ preference to shop from sustainable brands increased by nearly 25%.

Moreover, their willingness to pay more for sustainable products increased by 42%. In fact, consumers from Baby Boomers to Gen Z‚ÄĒare now willing to spend more for sustainable products.

The Cycle of Sustainability 

Sustainability does not only concern itself with the final product. To be able to call themselves sustainable, a brand must be thorough with its processes. A business must consider the entire life cycle of its products or services.

Life-cycle sustainability assessments analyze everything, from raw material extraction to disposal. Here are the six crucial steps in the cycle of sustainability: 

Designing for Reduced Consumption

The brand mindset needs to change from 'we need to sell more' to 'we need to sell what is necessary'. Minimalism finds its grounds in this philosophy.

Brands that produce to reduce consumption reduce the need for resources and waste. Businesses that focus on minimalism trends ultimately consider environmental sustainability, cost, and quality.

Raw Materials

Consider where and how raw materials are sourced. It is not a secret that every product finds its roots in natural resources. Sourcing these ingredients has an impact on the environment- be it big or small. This includes the use of limited resources or even the destruction of natural habitats.

You need to ask yourself- Where are my ingredients coming from? Is my business harming any endangered species? Can I recycle any by-products from sourcing my ingredients?

Manufacturing

The process of manufacturing can harm nature in many ways. This could include when factories release harmful waste into rivers or the air. Think about manufacturing locations, waste production, and energy efficiency.

Distributing and Packaging

Moving both the finished product and the materials needed to make it requires energy. The amount of harmful substances released into the air depends on transportation. It can also be determined by how far things need to go.

Minimalistic skincare

The packaging of your product also requires resources and can create unnecessary waste. A simple way to reduce waste is to keep packaging simple, reusable, and functional.

Product Use

The environmental impact during product use varies. The impact of a product on the environment during its use depends on the type of product. For example, skincare has to be repurchased frequently. So think about what you are doing to reduce the impact of those repurchases.

Disposal and Recycling

Most of the rubbish we throw away either ends up in landfill sites or is littered into the environment. Consider the end of the product's life cycle. Product (and packaging) can be recycled, reused, or composted.

Recycling allows for the materials that make up your product to be used again to make a new item. Products and materials such as glass bottles or tin can be reused.
