Seven Beauty Products That Will Make You AND the Earth Look Good
This Earth Day, I'll be celebrating by stocking up on moisturizers and shampoo—and you should too.
By purchasing limited-edition (or in some cases, ANY) products from beauty brands you already know and love, you'll be contributing to initiatives that help save the rainforest, preserve water resources and plant trees. Pretty cool—especially because your skin and hair get to reap the benefits too.
Click through below to learn how to get in on the action.
The Product: Kiehl's super-hydrating Ultra Facial Cream is now featuring limited-edition labels designed by actor Zachary Quinto and Alanis Morissette—both of whom the brand calls "socially conscious influencers."
The Cause: In honor of Earth Day, 100 percent of the net proceeds from the product will benefit Recycle Across America (RAA). The brand is also donating $50,000 to the organization.
The Product: A natural sunscreen that is water resistant for up to 40 minutes and is formulated with green tea and aloe to soothe and replenish skin before sunburns have time to wreak havoc on your skin. (The purchase of any product will support Yes To's initiatives)
The Cause: The skin and hair care brand is donating $1.6 million worth of products to humanitarian organization Feed The Hungry. In addition, Yes To is giving one percent of company profits this year to their Yes To Seed Fund that helps plant school gardens in both Kenya and the US.
The Product: Purchase one of Tarte's products formulated with their new t5 super fruit complex—like this cheek stain that creates a perfectly flushed look—and you're helping to support the Sustainable Amazon Partnership (SAP).
The Cause: SAP works to preserve the Amazon Rainforest and to support improved living conditions and educational opportunities for communities in Brazil. Tarte will be contributing to the organization throughout the year.
The Product: These four limited-edition skincare products work to clean and detoxify your face—and thanks to your purchase, the air, too.
The Cause: From April 21 to April 28, Origins will plant a tree for each limited-edition product purchased as part of their Plant-A-Tree Campaign.
The Product: This pear-scented 3-in-1 is really a 4-in-1: it's a shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath and it helps save the rainforest.
The Cause: Philosophy will donate 100 percent of net proceeds from the sale of Green to the Rainforest Foundation.
The Product: Neutrogena products have always been good for our skin, but the brand is taking things a step further with its Naturals line. All products, like this moisturizer, contain bionutrient ingredients and sustainable packaging. (The purchase of any product will support Neutrogena Naturals' initiatives.)
The Cause: Neutrogena Naturals supports the water conservation efforts of The Nature Conservancy, an organization dedicated to the global preservation of nature.
The Product: One of the most inexpensive and best-smelling dry shampoos on the market. Click here to learn how to recycle it through Garnier's Terracycle program when you're done.
(The purchase of any product will support Garnier's initiatives.)
The Cause: This Earth Month, Garnier has donated $100,000 to EarthShare in support of charities committed to clean water. Garnier is also a partner of Terracycle (as mentioned above), a company that reuses and recycles post-consumer materials.
