Moving Beyond Green
Be a Part of
Inspired by many of the brands and founders we partner with looking to make a positive impact on the environment through their beauty, wellness and lifestyle companies, we launched the Blue Beauty movement.
Moving beyond green beauty means that above and beyond finding ways to wholeheartedly embrace organic and plant-based beauty and minimize our impact on the environment, Blue Beauty brands are finding ways to regenerate, improve and repair it in ways big and small.
Blue Beauty is a global movement, started by our Founder Jeannie Jarnot in 2018 to celebrate beauty brands striving to make the planet better and the conscious consumers and early supporters of the companies paving the way.
Beauty Heroes aspires to Live Lighter. We’re learning every step of the way, but we’re on the path. Here’s what you can expect from us.
Less Waste Retail
Through responsible ordering and forecasting, we commit to creating less waste in our in-house fulfillment center, meaning we sell every item we purchase from our brands.
Living Lighter Lifestyle Store
Both online and IRL, we dedicate a retail division to the most progressive and innovative sustainable lifestyle wares.
For each order from our Beauty Store, Beauty Heroes removes one pound of plastic from the environment with our partner rePurpose global making your purchase certified plastic negative.
Dedicated Blue Ambassadors
We’re committed to investing in ambassadors, agencies and brand partnerships to educate, connect and inspire Living Lighter. With their help, and yours, our goal is audacious but achievable: Project Blue Beauty will a global movement by 2022.
Blue things comes in small packages. We strive to pack our web orders in the smallest possible boxes, using recyclable materials and filler, shipped via public mail services that don’t require an extra trip when delivered.
We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every online beauty store order to help re-forest our planet.
We support our local eco-conscious printers in Northern California who prints on FSC certified paper using soy ink.
Blue Beauty In Action
We’re committed to hosting annual Beach Cleanups and Recycling Initiatives open to the public.
Our first brick and mortar in Novato, California is a hub for healthy beauty, as well as a progressive Refill/Recycle program in partnership with TerraCycle, and Living Lighter workshops.
Blue Beauty Education
We are committed to creating content that educates, inspires and celebrates blue initiatives and progress. We want to have an on-going conversation with our conscious consumers as we continue to explore what it means to ‘go blue’.

- They opt for donated or recycled packing material
- They have a customer-facing recycling program
- and a smart returns donation program
- They invest R&D budget into green technologies

- Oh, and maybe they’ve even achieved a B-Corp certification
