Taylor Schilling’s interview in NY Mag’s The Cut

Taylor Schilling talks to NY mag about wellness and more

From NY Mag

Taylor Schilling is best known for her work on Orange is the New Black. The same thoughtfulness she applies to playing inmate Piper Chapman also applies to her approach to life, wellness, and being environmentally conscious. She’s partnered with beauty brand Burt Bee’s to bring awareness to their Bring Back the Bees campaign, which works to help the declining bee population by planting more wildflowers. “As I became more educated on the subject, I was shocked to find out how many parts of life and our environment are sustained by bees,” she told me. (Each sale of a limited-edition Burt’s Bees lip balm plants 5,000 wildflowers.) Here, she talks to the Cut about the poetry book she’s been reading for inspiration, honest expression, and why not curating “a self” is key to her wellness practice.

From InStyle:

Burt’s Bees, the maker of your favorite little tube of yellow lip balm, has officially kicked off their 2017 Bring Back the Bees campaign. The initiative seeks to defeat the declining bee population problem by planting bee-sustaining wildflower seeds, and Orange Is the New Black star Taylor Schilling has signed on to spread the word—oh, and share her selfie.

“I think the declining of the bee population impacts so much of my daily experience of the world in ways that I wasn’t even really aware of,” she told InStyle in an interview about the program.

Here’s a new pic of Taylor Schilling for the Burt’s Bees

Bees pollinate not only one third of the food we eat, but much of the plant life that makes our world so beautiful. Populations are down and they need our help. You can do something. Click the link in my profile to take a #SelflessSelfie. For each one you create @BurtsBeesUS will plant 5k pollen-filled wildflowers to help nourish the bees. http://brtsbe.es/o77FVd #workingwithburtsbees

Here’s some beauty news that has us buzzing: Just in time for Earth Month, Burt’s Bees is relaunching its “Bring Back the Bees” initiative with two environmentally-conscious actresses: Troian Bellisario and Taylor Schilling. The pair succeed Lea Michele, who partnered with the brand on the inaugural campaign in 2016.

“The issue of the declining bee population is very complicated and impacts so many different aspects of our lives, but I think if there could be a little more awareness brought to the enormity of what honey bees do, that would be a job well done,” says Schilling.

These days, in addition to the cult classic, they also swear by some of Burt’s Bees most moisturizing offerings. “I’ve been up in Toronto for a while and it’s been very cold and dry, so I really used a lot of the Burt’s Bees Hand Salve,” says Bellisario. Meanwhile, Schilling’s MVP is its Multipurpose Ointment. “I was just on a job and everybody was really chapped, so we were using it every single day.”

The actresses have long tried to stick to planet-friendly beauty regimens in their personal lives, though Schilling admits at times it can be challenging.

“It’s not always easy, but I try really hard to be as conscious as I can about what I am consuming and how I am consuming it,” she says. “For a while, I fell victim to the mindset of, ‘If it’s just one person, does it really make that much of a difference?’ but I do know that I can make a difference, even if it’s just by choosing to spend my money, with a company that values sustainability.”
