Find out which beauty products are good for you and the environment
A brand that tends to veer towards the higher end, Chantecaille is a frequent supporter of the environment with their limited-edition products. This spring, the Coral Reefs Palette, a stunning four-in-one miracle worker, is the item to buy. Five percent of the proceeds from this palette will be donated to the Marine Conservation Institute. Pick one up today, and enjoy the good feelings that come from doing your part to save our oceans.
Tarte is an amazing beauty brand that does a great job of cranking out products that are good for you, and good for Mother Earth. Their cosmetics utilize ingredients found naturally in the environment—that means no parabens or synthetic fragrances. Maracuja, a fruit found in Brazil, is the key player in Tarte’s new Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss. Products are packaged in recyclable or post-consumer recycled material, making them eco-friendly and totally chic. The company also has a customer recycling incentive program, which rewards users who recycle their empty product cases with a discount on future purchases.
Acqua for Life
In honor of World Water Week, Giorgio Armani introduced its Acqua for Life campaign. The campaign was started to support the UNICEF Tap Project, which seeks to give children around the world access to clean water. Giorgio Armani donated $1 to the Tap Project for every bottle of best-selling Acqua di Gio and Acqua di Gioia sold. In addition, they also donated $1 for the first 100,000 people who liked the Acqua for Life Facebook page. Clean water for children worldwide? Now that is a cause we can really get behind.
