Is Beauty costing us the EARTH?

Updated: Oct 5

At EnsO Earth we are working hard to find companies and products, that we can endorse and promote, that support our cause to live more earth consciously...

Here at EnsO Earth, all our women use AVON beauty products.

Paula, our +Products Director, has been an Executive Leader at Avon for almost 15 years. She has built a successful entrepreneurial business with Avon, parallel to working as a professional civil engineer.


Avon's business model is rooted in creating opportunities for economic participation – supporting millions of Representatives across the world - who run their own beauty business with Avon.

Grading Avon as Net+ (positive)

They are on an ambitious journey to reduce the packaging of their products, and move to 100% sustainable paper, and increase the use of recycled and recyclable materials. They are working towards more renewable and natural ingredients and biodegradable formulas for their beauty products.


EnsO Earth grades Net+ Water, Net+ Waste, Net+ Nature, Net+ Energy and Net+ Climate separately to understand the company's commitment to Net+




We then grade the company as an average of their performance in the 5 sectors, and this is their company Net+ grading. If a company scores 3+ as an average we do believe that they are committed to creating a regenerative Net+ future.
