What makes Bloomtown so sustainable?

The brand is also involved in charitable initiatives and donates 10% of its profits to environmental and animal rescue charities, including The Orangutan Project. Additionally, Bloomtown has a #deforestationfree campaign, which encourages individuals to speak out about the controversial palm oil industry.
