Your Wellness Routine And Your Planet

Our Earth has its own looks and health as well. Do good.

The world now more than ever, is inhabited by people who are consciously taking care of their looks and wellness. Do you belong to this health-conscious club? It is highly likely! Has it ever crossed your mind that while caring for your well-being, you can actually contribute in sustaining a more habitable Earth? Let us talk about that correlation. It is seriously simple.

YOUR WELLNESS ROUTINE AND YOUR PLANET

The packaging of the product you are using for your skincare routine or your grooming regimen, stays as a pollutant for more than 450 years before it is biodegraded. Exponentially, all of your friends, old and new, real and fake, are also using health products with similar packaging materials. It does not mean though that we should stop paying attention to our health. It means that we should simply stop patronizing those health products and consider changing our preference into brands which foster sustainable lifestyle. This is just one of the gravely situations which Watsons’ Sustainable Choices campaign comes into play.

The trusted health product retailer, through the Sustainable Choices campaign, puts sustainability at the core of brand development and sourcing, from packaging to ingredient choices. These are aimed to help shoppers make Sustainable Choices by providing them with Earth-friendly options for their wellness needs.

YOUR NEXT WATSONS RUN

On your next wellness essential shopping at Watsons, the following four initiatives are encouraged as part of a long-term commitment to protecting the environment anchored on four pillars – Community, People, Customers and Planet. Indeed, look good, do good, feel great.

Clean Beauty

Carrying a wide range of Clean Beauty products available at affordable prices, the store’s Clean Beauty products contain better ingredients that are sourced responsibly with an eye toward sustainability.

Reuse & Refill

Watsons Philippines believes in reusing so it will make refill packs available for
purchase so they can reuse the original containers of shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and other personal care products, enabling them to create a habit that helps reduce waste going into landfills.

Better Ingredients

Palm Oil and its derivatives are used in 70% of beauty products and with its yield being far better than any other crop, there is no way to remove it from formulations. The problem with palm oil is that it is extremely harmful for the environment.

Better Packaging

Biodegrading of plastic bottles take 450+ years, while plastic bags take a grueling 20+years, adding grave impact to the environment.

Watsons Philippines promotes products packaged in recycled containers by encouraging use of 100% sustainable paper packaging that come from sustainably and responsibly managed forests and plantations or using bio-based or post-consumer recycled plastics. In stores, it has been encouraging shoppers to refuse single-use plastics wherever they go and instead, bring
their reusable shopping bags or use eco-friendly totes.

YOUR CALL

It is indeed imperative to take care of one’s health – to look good, to feel great. But I hope, from now on, we shall stop the self-centered type of care. Our Earth has its own looks and health as well. Do good.

*Here is an easy and fun to-do list to Do Good.

Take care of yourself. Take care of her.
