Wearing Green on St. Patrick’s Day is not an Irish tradition. Americans celebrate St. Patrick’s Day differently than the Irish do.
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland
To celebrate in Ireland, people pin a small bunch of Shamrocks to the right side of their shirts. The Shamrocks are worn to signify one’s Irishness and the traditional connection with St. Patrick. In Ireland, people attend Church on St. Patrick’s Day, and the Shamrocks are blessed at Church ceremonies. This is the Blessing of the Shamrock.
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in America
Wearing green clothing is an American spin on the Irish tradition. As is drinking green beer. This year, we’ve decided to celebrate for a different reason at Organic Radiance Skincare.
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at ORS
We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day not because we’re Irish or like drinking beer. We’re supporting what “green” means to us as a clean beauty business in the United States. We’re layering an additional purpose into the green we’re wearing this St. Patty’s Day.
Operating in an Environmentally and Socially Conscious Way
That green means to us that we run Organic Radiance Skincare in a sustainable way that is friendly to the environment. That means that we’re showing our support for science and the reduction of global warming. We’re showing that being mindful of our environmental impact is part of how we do business. We plant a tree for every product you purchase. This is done through our partnership with One Tree Planted.
Green Packaging Philosophy
Our minimalist packaging approach includes no cardboard box to end up in landfills. We even have a product refill program where you can return your clean product container to us to have it refilled. That’s recycling and reusing in its purest form.
