In recent years many clothing, cosmetics, make-up and hair product manufacturers have begun developing sustainable products. For some companies this has always been their core competence, and as a result new, future-oriented branches of businesses have emerged.

It ensures that the clothes, make-up and props also come from ground-breaking, ecological sources. Even the completion of the photo production itself should be as environmentally conscious as possible."
