Products We’ll Support
Good news! Many entrepreneurs – and some major manufacturers – are finding new ways to reach Angel Activist shoppers. They’re bringing back forgotten traditions, reviving ancient seeds and leveraging bio-diversity. At the same time, they are translating past treasures into new and better ways of producing and consuming products, in line with their values. From micro to macro, innovative initiatives are blooming and plant-based ingredients are gaining momentum.
We consider Primera to belong to the most promising brands, based on the power of sprouts, pairing clinically-proven, nutrient-dense seed extracts and oils with innovative K-beauty technologies and textures. Its Facial Mild Peeling contains/works with a botanical-based exfoliator with natural ingredients including brussel sprouts, chamomile flower, broccoli and wild strawberry. The skin-glowifying formula, housed in recyclable packaging comprises the best of all worlds—pure, potent and planet-friendly.
Imagine this: Food residues turns into cottonized fiber, and then that cottonized fiber turns into clothing. Mind blown? We want to share our excitement about this, too! The new natural fiber Agraloop BioFibre is transforming food crop residues into scalable high-value natural fiber fashion products. The technology works with residues such as banana peels, pineapple leaves and hemp stalks to create a natural BioFibre to weave into clothing.
Last year, Reebok introduced a plant-based shoe to inspire positive change. We’re hoping this trailblazing innovation from a big name such as Reebok will open the dore for more plant-based shoes to come.
Ugly is the new chic for the vegetables chosen by Imperfect Produce. In the form of “imperfect boxes,” the site delivers a whole panel of fresh vegetables whose aesthetic traditionally prevents them from making it into store. Members can order healthy, high-quality groceries (many of them organic) and save those castaways from going to waste.
Possibly the most unique example in this list comes from Mi Zhou, the creator of toiletry bottles called Soapack. They cast bottles from soap reduce the plastic waste that comes from traditional shampoo packaging. Once you have emptied your shampoo “bottle”, you can use the packaging as a soap!
