Fresh off the back of a successful fundraiser to rescue dogs from the Yulin Dog Festival, Ireland’s cruelty-free cosmetics expert and animal rights activist Ailsha Davey agreed to speak with us about her blog, Flawless and Pawless, and how she started fighting for the voiceless.
White Witch is an Irish company with a difference. Not only is it the first company in Ireland to go plastic-free with its packaging, it’s also vegan and BPA-free with a range of organic, ethical skincare.
Based in Connemara in Co. Galway, White Witch is very environmentally-conscious and believes that nature shouldn’t pay the price for human beauty. From start to finish, the process is handled by the White Witch team themselves. They speak to the growers, the suppliers and local people to acquire the best quality ingredients harvested in the most ethical way. All of their products are made using wild flowers, plants, oats and seaweed from the unspoiled coast and meadows in front of the Atlantic Ocean.
We spoke with founder, Ruth Ruane, about the company that means so much to her and what she sees for its future.
Update 20/12/20: Forester Products has since ceased operations
After a very successful launch just two weeks ago (June 2018), the co-founders of Irish vegan accessories company, Forester Products, are on a high. Their PETA-approved first collection is a collision of ethics and style, marrying sustainable materials like cork with practicality. We spoke with one of the brains behind the brand, Sean Forester, about setting up a vegan accessories company.
