Elyn’s Glossary of Green | Part Two

Elyn’s Glossary of Green | Part Two


We’re back with another installment of Elyn’s Glossary of Green. We heard your desire to know more about confusing terms being used and what it means for you, a busy, environmentally engaged woman on the go.

As a sustainable products company, we had similar questions and worked together as a team to discern which ones are important and how they impact our lives. We’re proud to share Elyn Glossary of Green, Part Two where we’ve collected terms related to a green lifestyle and distilled them for the most pertinent points. 


A product, especially in the cosmetics arena, that are made without harming or testing on animals.

 Fair Trade

Is a concept that creating economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods in developing countries leads to a consumer market that distributes the resources fairly and equitably among all. 

Zero Waste

A lifestyle that aims to send as little to the landfill as possible and instead focuses on reducing, reusing, and recycling items around the home. 


A way of life that seeks to eliminate all plastic products and packaging from personal use.   


As we learn together we’ll be adding to the Glossary of Green so we can all made educated decisions about how we can do our part to create a sustainable lifestyle.
