In honor of Earth Day, today I’m sharing some products that celebrate the spirit of the day by giving back to the environment or community. Purchasing these products will directly benefit specific environmental organizations, or help the environment in some way.
Aveda Light The Way Candle ($12): The Earth Month 2014 candle is scented with ginger and ginger lily from India. 100% of the purchase price goes toward supporting Global Greengrants Fund water-related projects around the world.
Kiehl’s Earth Day 2014 Ashley Judd Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque ($23): Each year, Kiehl’s partners with a celebrity to design a limited-edition Earth Day label for their Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. This year, they’ve teamed up with Ashley Judd. With each jar purchased, Kiehl’s is donating 100% of net profits (up to $50,000) to Recycle Across America, an organization that aims to make recycling easier for all.
Zoya Nailpolish Exchange: Zoya celebrates Earth Day by bringing back their wildly popular Nailpolish Exchange. Purchase up to 6 bottles of Zoya nail lacquer at $4.50 (a 50% discount), and then mail unwanted polish bottles back to them so they can dispose of them properly. Valid through April 28, 2014 only.
L’Occitane: Instead of buying an entirely new bottle of your favorite L’Occitane product, purchase a refill pack, which reduces packaging and cuts down on waste.
For Philly locals: To celebrate Earth Day, 12th Street Gym and Andre Richard Salon have partnered to host the Health & Beauty Expo (4/22, 5-8 pm) at the 12th Street Gym. Enjoy blowouts from ARS Lab; natural manicures; complimentary yoga & meditation classes; a class on infused oils, chair massages; and refreshments–all complimentary. The event is free & open to the public.
Tomorrow I will be sharing my list of natural, organic, & green cosmetics companies. I’ve compiled this list over the course of almost 5 years blogging…be sure to stop by & check it out!
