Earth Day is almost here, Sunday April 22nd, and in the name of Beauty lets also keep our Earth looking just as beautiful all month long.
Earth Day has become an international holiday made originally to educate and inspire those to take pride in their environment. In an effort to take extra special care in the month of April, several top beauty brands are joining in the celebration by teaming up with note-worthy organizations allowing you to easily give back and get back some great beauty deals.
Shop Kiehl’s this Earth Day for their limited edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. They’ve just been released as part of the Label Art Series featuring big name celebrity sponsors like one of my favorites, Mark Ruffalo, along with Rosario Dawson, Spike Lee and Florence Welch! These limited edition products will showcase the celeb’s Earth-inspired designs, depicting their vision of 2012 social responsibility. To support the launch, Timothy White, celebrity photographer has captured each sponsor’s celebrity style in a unique way. As part of the campaign, Keihl’s will graciously donate 100% of all the net proceeds to Recycle Across America, a non-profit organization dedicated to making recycling simpler, more effective, and prevalent in the United States. Profits up to $100,000 will fund the printing and distributing of standardized recycling labels and containers across national public schools. (Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque retails for $23.00)
One of my favorite stores, Anthropologie will also be joining in the Earth Day spirit in their own way. They’ve been inspired by the beauty of jellyfish, octopi, sea stars, and other ocean creatures as they’ve created dream-like depictions of sea life in their window displays. They are doing so in an effort to raise awareness about the diminishing coral reefs that have housed a variety of our oceans creatures. In partnership with the Wyland Foundation and in true Anthropologie fashion, its window displays have been transformed into breathtaking works of art that remind us of the coral reef’s vanishing beauty.
Everyday Minerals is promising 10% of all sales will go towards the conservation of Austin Hill Country for Wilderness Preservation. Through this partnership they have rescued 28 acres of land, in hopes of rescuing 1,000 acres by 2025. Help them reach their goal even quicker by purchasing Everyday Minerals Raspberry Rose Lip Scrub for $7 to gently exfoliate and moisturize your lips. Or opt for their tie-dye Emerald Bamboo Brush Roll to organize your new Earth Day products at $9.
