Today we celebrate Earth Day and take a moment to highlight some of the eco-friendly beauty products and/or companies that are rallying around a specific recycling cause. These brands are committed to making our Earth a better place!
AVEDA has always been a champion of the environment and has many initiatives year ’round. At AVEDA, they don’t stop at celebrating Earth Day; April is Earth Month! For the past 8 years, sales of the Light the Way™ Candle, in which AVEDA donates 100% of the $12 purchase price, have raised over $9 million to support Global Greengrants Fund water projects. Scented with a new pure flower and plant aroma made with 100% certified organic essential oils, including certified organic vanilla, cinnamon and ylang ylang from Madagascar, the Light the Way™ Candle is housed in a jar made from 100% reclaimed glass beverage bottles. Look for it in AVEDA Salons or at aveda.com.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 is committed to recycling and living an eco-conscious lifestyle. In addition to their Recycle and Be Rewarded! program (check at your local Kiehl’s free-standing store for details), Kiehl’s has donated $50,000 to Recycle Across America™. To support this cause, Kiehl’s has introduced The Limited Edition Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado series featuring Earth-inspired designs by socially conscious influencers Elisabeth Olsen and Maggie Q. 100% of net profits, up to $50,000, will benefit Recycle Across America™. If you need a fantastic eye cream, I can personally tell you that the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment ($47) is intensely hydrating and an overall wonderful eye cream.
Neutrogena, a brand that I’ve worked with and respected for years, is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to in the #WipeForWater campaign. Neutrogena is challenging US consumers to clean their face without water for one week; instead using the new Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to remove dirt, oil and makeup. These towelettes are made with 97% naturally-drived cleansing ingredients and NO harsh chemical sulfates, phthalates, parabens or unnecessary additives. Which means that they are gentle enough for sensitive skin and eyes. Love! For each pledge on WipeForWater.com, Neutrogena Naturals will contribute $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000. Get wiping!
Always one of my favorite Earth Day events, the Zoya Earth Day Nail Polish Exchange returns!
