Now running in their fourth year, the Clean + Conscious Awards celebrate exceptional products that work in perfect harmony with our bodies, our environment and our society. Submissions open March 2022 with finalists being announced in September.
The Gold, Silver and Bronze winners of the Clean + Conscious Awards 2021 included over 250 exceptional products across a wide range of categories and from brands worldwide, with over 700 entries. The independent awards are rapidly growing as demand for independent reviews increase and 2022 is expected to be an even bigger year. This is the opportunity for brands to navigate the new consumer world as people increasingly want to shop ethically and as sustainably as possible. Founder, Emily Fletcher says “More and more brands are working hard to produce products that are healthier for their customers, kinder to our planet and beneficial to local and global communities,”
Categories in the Awards include Skincare, Makeup, Body, Baby, Kids, Home, Zero Waste, Fashion & Fitness and Food & Nutrition.
All finalist products have been scientifically researched and scrutinised by Awards Founder and Head of Research and Education, Emily Fletcher, and also hands-on reviewed by a panel of 45 industry experts. The Expert Panel is diverse and inclusive of disability and First Nations communities.
“By running these fair, transparent and non-biased Awards, we are providing consumers with a trustworthy resource where they can discover products verified to be both clean and conscious,” says Emily.
“In our directory, you’ll discover honest information on each product’s ingredients or materials, further information on how each product is ethical, sustainable and responsible, and hands-on product reviews from our Expert Panel.”
The Clean + Conscious 2021 Expert Panel was made up of eco-leaders, beauty experts, editors, changemakers and influencers. The panel included Sarah Berry of the Sydney Morning Herald / The Age, Beauticate founder Sigourney Cantelo, ethical fashion blogger Brittney Dreghorn (of Britt’s List), First Nations Director of Groundswell Giving, Lille Madden, and many more. Many of these names will be back again in 2022.
