Nails on fleek are a summer essential! But did you know the nail polish you use can also be good for the planet? Welcome to 5 ways ciate plant pots are sustainable! At rosegold reports we love to champion brands which are kind to the environment, so are very impressed with Ciate Plant Pots. Ciate is a brand which is PETA certified, cruelty free and vegan.
