OUR MISSION

Why Conserve Water?


Water is essential to our way of life. Our economy, environment and day-to-day lifestyle requires water to flourish. Unfortunately, our water supplies are limited so we must learn how to use water more wisely every day. Lovely Lady Products is the first body care company to win the Center for ReSource Conservation Award, recognized as Innovator and Entrepreneur of the Year for our bold stance on the development and marketing of organic, fair trade, gluten-free and "green" products as well as our dedication to water conservation.The Earth, the air we breathe, and the people we share the planet with; definitely worthy causes. Water is essential to our way of life and our economy, environment and day-to-day lifestyle requires water to flourish. Unfortunately, our water supplies are limited and we must learn how to use water wisely every day. We here at Lovely Lady Products make a conscious effort to eliminate the need for water in all our products except for the natural water that comes from planets that we use to formulate our hydrosol extract toner. By doing so, we are able to concentrate nutrients for maximum results, thus creating an exquisite line of plant-based organic products with exceptional properties. To reinforce this commitment, we continue to team up with conservation groups in an effort to educate and assist the community with ways to conserve water.

In consideration of water conservation, we do not use water in our formulations with the exception of using Distillates, Hydrosols and Extracts in our toner. Our facial products are lightweight and absorbs much more quickly than most moisturizers that have been diluted with water. That’s right, NO WATER (with the exception of our hydrosol and extract toner), WE TRULY DO BELIEVE IN CONSERVING WATER.

And, it’s definitely a good reason to do so in skin care products, you want to take in as much of the nutrients and properties from that plant as you can. HOW LOVELY!!!


CONSERVING WATER


Saving water is not hard and we don’t need to worry that our beautiful landscaping needs to go without. Or, that we’ll have to go with fewer showers. We simply need to be smart about using the water we have. After all, it’s among the planet’s most precious resources and how we manage it today will directly affect every aspect of our lives in the future.

During the times that we are blessed with an abundance of rain, it’s rather easy to believe there are no issues with our water supply. Well think again, and remember there are areas in the US that are prone to drought. The next drought may be just around the corner so remember that wasting even small amounts of water today means less water is available for the dry times we know will come again.

During the times that we refer to as “normal” years, some areas of the country find it difficult to meet all demands for water. Compounding this issue is the reality that some key water projects have been permanently reduced due to legitimate environmental concerns, while other systems struggle with aging infrastructure and other challenges.

As the country’s population continues to grow; more people, farms and businesses will rely on our rivers, reservoirs and groundwater basins for their daily needs. Yet, climate changes are already affecting the planet’s water resources and experts say the changing rain and snowfall patterns will result in longer periods of drought. The bottom line here is that we can no longer take our water resources for granted and we must learn how to reduce water use. While state and local leaders (national and global too) continue to work on long-term solutions to our water challenges, by using less water, the rest of us can do our part by helping to decrease water pollution, increase energy savings, and create more efficient use of our water resources.

Rethinking the way we use water – both indoors and outdoors – will help stretch our limited supplies and ensure water is there when we need it. If we all work together, we can make a difference for our planet’s future. Follow our easy tips and start saving water every day.

REDUCE RESUE RECYCLE

Most people know that recycling plays an important role in managing the garbage generated in homes and businesses, and that it reduces the need for landfills and incinerators.

But recycling is far more than a local waste management strategy; it is also an important strategy for reducing the environmental impacts of industrial production. Supplying industry with recycled materials, rather than virgin resources extracted from forests and mines, is environmentally preferable because it saves energy, reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and other dangerous air and water pollutants, and because it conserves scarce natural resources.

From the beginning, Lovely Lady Products has been committed to doing what we can to provide an eco-conscious environment for the well-being of the planet. We make every effort to commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle within our operations and as we grow, we will continue to find new ways to become a more eco-conscious friendly business. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Recover. Reclaim. These 5 steps are crucial to creating a greener environment throughout the world, so why not implement a few small changes in our daily routine? You really can make a major difference on our environment. Please conserve energy by participating in the following:

  • Turn off lights, electronic equipment, and appliances when not in use.
  • Conserve water by taking shorter showers, washing only full loads of laundry, and reporting water waste.
  • Recycle paper, bottles, and cans.
