12 Fashion and Beauty Brands donating to the Australian Bushfires
Updated: Oct 22, 2021
Recently, I was scrolling through the news feed on my Facebook when I saw again that viral image of a brave woman saving an injured and scared koala from a bushfire in Australia; at that moment, I realized that a few months have passed since that event and I haven't done anything. This is how I came up with the idea of writing a special post in support of Australian wildfires, so I gave myself the homework of researching fashion and beauty brands that are joining the cause by donating a percentage of their proceeds or sales. In this way, if you are interested, you can help by doing what you like best: shopping.
Before sharing the list of brands that I promised you, as a way to raise awareness, I would like to point out some important facts about the wildfires that have been affecting Australia in recent months.
Fires have burned around 7.3 million hectares in 6 states of Australia. To put in perspective, this figure is comparable to the length of Denmark and Belgium combined.
About 27 people have died across the country during the fires.
Around 1 billion animals have been affected by fires throughout Australia, including mammals, reptiles, and birds.
New South Wales is the most affected state, with around 4.9 million hectares burned, more than 2000 destroyed or damaged homes, and about half a billion affected animals, including almost a third of the koala population and their respective habitats.
Due to the severity of the Australian wildfires, some celebrities like Elton John, Pink, Chris Hemsworth, Kylie Minogue, Russell Crowe, and Nicole Kidman are making donations to support relief efforts. However, celebrities are not the only ones who have joined the cause, some Australian and international brands are also showing their support for the country by donating a percentage of their sales or profits. The latter represents a great opportunity for normal people, like you and me, to join the cause as well. The following are some beauty and fashion brands where you can buy to support (all of them offer international shipping):
