The Problem with ‘Sustainable’ High Street Fashion | Primark, H&M, Zara

Over the past few of years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of ‘sustainable’ clothing lines offered by high street retailers, and 2017 in particular saw these get a real boost. Brands like Primark, H&M, and Zara have all made big claims about their products and their environmental credentials, but while many might argue this is a step in the right direction, there are huge problems with this. From employing ‘greenwashing’ tactics (using vague buzzwords to make your products sound more sustainable than they are) to distracting from the real issues within the industry, these lines do more harm…

8 Tips to Make Green Smoothies You’ll Love

Green smoothies are fantastic – in summer they’re refreshing, in winter they can help us to fight off colds, and all year round they’re delicious. Having a green smoothie every day for breakfast or as a regular snack is a great habit to get into, but it can often seem like it’s just too much effort. So I’ve put together some tips I’ve learned about making delicious smoothies in the easiest way possible!   #1: Remember the 40/60 rule I may have made up this rule. But it works.

Living a Fully Ethical Lifestyle

Here at Revival Collective, we try to promote ethical and conscious living as much as we can, in a realistic way – but is it really possible to live a completely ethical and sustainable lifestyle? There are so many causes and issues when it comes to ethics and sustainability, it’s hard to tackle them all at once. Some of the key issues we focus on are ethical fashion, veganism, and zero waste. There are ways to combine these three in certain ways, like buying veggies in a reusable, ethically-made linen bag rather than with plastic bags. But it’s hard to…

A Conscious Introduction to Vegan Skincare

Vegan skincare – it sounds like a simple concept, but if you’ve ever tried to actually change up your beauty products and switch to vegan ones, I’m sure you’ve come across a few confusing hurdles. There are a lot of different terms thrown around – vegetarian, vegan, cruelty-free, natural, organic – which all sound good, but they have important differences in meaning. There’s also a range of different certifications and confusing ingredient names which make the whole area a bit messy. So we’ve put together this guide to give you an introduction to vegan skincare and makeup and help clear…

Tried & Tested: Faith in Nature

Faith in Nature was the first ever natural/eco beauty brand I started using when I decided to try and live a more ethical and sustainable lifestyle. Living in Brighton, I’m lucky enough to have Infinity Foods, a cooperative stocking natural and organic products, so I went in and picked out the Faith in Nature shampoos, and I haven’t looked back! I’ve also recently tried a moisturiser from the brand, but I’m not so keen on that one unfortunately. I also use their hand soaps exclusively and have tried a bunch of their different shampoos and conditioners! Faith in Nature is…

Tried & Tested: Conscious Skincare

Conscious Skincare is a fantastic brand if you’re looking for vegan, cruelty-free, organic skincare, because it has a huge product range! I’ve often found with brands that tick all my boxes, they only have a few products I’m really interested in. Conscious Skincare offers everything from face wash and serums to hand wash and bath oils – they even have a men’s range and a baby range! I’ve been trying out a couple of their products so I wanted to share my thoughts with you. Of course, these two products just scratch the surface of what’s available, but trying out…

A Conscious Introduction To Cotton

Cotton is a complicated issue. We consume so much of it in the fashion industry – cotton is used for 40% of all clothing produced globally, and it makes up 90% of all natural fibres used in the textile industry! Although many people may assume that it’s a good material simply because it’s a natural fibre, it’s a lot more complex than that. There are upsides and downsides to using cotton, from its water consumption to the fact that it can biodegrade, so it can be hard to get your head around the issue. Here at Revival Collective, we’ve put…

Tried & Tested: Sukin Organics Skincare

Sukin Organics is a brand that I recently tried and immediately fell in love with. I’ve only tried two products from their line but I love them both enough to have repurchased them once I ran out, and I’ll be trying out more of their stuff soon. They’ve recently become available through Boots, which is where I found them, and it’s so nice to see a natural, cruelty-free, vegan, eco-friendly brand in Boots! All my boxes are ticked! And for a brand that ticks all those boxes, the prices are brilliant, too. About Sukin Sukin is an Australian natural skincare…
