“Everyone’s invited” to Steph Shep’s party to save the environment. The eco-influencer and former right hand woman to Kim Kardashian preaches the gospel of “imperfect” activism: It’s all about getting a large amount of people to make easy changes, rather than putting the onus on a few activists. This approach seems to be working. Her climate club, @futureearth, has amassed 265k followers and counting, and she’s committed to partnering with companies that share her vision.
We caught up with Steph and brand Codex Beauty at a virtual event to debut its new Antü collection. Read on to learn more about Stephanie Shepherd's morning ritual, her favorite face oil for glowing skin, and the one thing she thinks everyone should know about sustainability.
The One Thing Anyone Can (And Should) Do to Reduce Their Environmental Impact
Lessening your environmental impact can be daunting, but Shepherd shares that aiming to “eat less (or no) meat” is a good entry point for those looking for a place to start.
The One Eco-Friendly Product to Add to Your Skincare Routine
“I’m all about the new Antü brightening line from Codex right now,” says Shepherd. Also, Codex's Bia Face Oil ($85) is a holy grail skincare product for her. “I love this brand because they source ingredients through biotech manufacturing wherever possible—this is the most energy and land usage sustainable source—and otherwise, through organic agriculture resulting in greater biodiversity. This protects the environment through legally binding standards that prevent pollution and ban herbicides and artificial fertilizers. Not to mention 100% of the packaging is recyclable!”

The One Thing She Recommends for Fellow Dog Moms
