The Power of Love: Prioritising Sustainable Self-Care this Valentine’s Day

The Power of Love: Prioritising Sustainable Self-Care this Valentine’s Day

At the beginning of February every year, ‘The Power of Love’ by Frankie Goes to Hollywood starts blaring on the radio and hearts begin appearing in shop windows. Everything turns pink and red, and people start talking about romantic love, familial love and even how much they love their pets. And yet, here at Sustainable Mode, we feel that there are two key categories missing from that list – self-love and love for mother nature.

But why is loving both yourself and the environment important on Valentine’s Day? Here’s everything you need to know:

A recent study of people from 21 different countries showed that ‘nearly 1 in 2 people around the world feel more self-doubt than self-love’. And it’s true – after this survey was carried out in November and December 2020, many brands identified ‘a self-love crisis’ and called for a global activism movement to build our collective self-esteem.

At the same time, the United Nations Environment Programme was reporting that humankind uses ‘1.6 Earths to maintain our current way of life and ecosystems cannot keep up with our demands’. Representatives highlighted the need for urgent action to halt the ‘dangerous decline’ in nature that humans are causing.

To help remedy both of these problems at the same time, Sustainable Mode has designed a beautiful, eco-friendly Sustainable Self-Care gift box. Complete with a thoughtfully curated collection of products designed to nourish your mind, body and soul whilst minimising your environmental impact. And, best of all, the Sustainable Self-Care gift box is now available as a monthly subscription!

It sounds too good to be true, right? Keep reading to learn more about the types of products you can expect to receive in your gift box.
