Earth Day has gotten a whole lot chicer since it first started in 1970. No longer are natural and organic products relegated to hippies or those with hypersensitive skin. In fact, with new effective formulations and swanky packages, it’s never been easier to go green. Here’s a look at some of the best Earth-friendly beauty finds.
Aveda has been a green leader since its inception. This year, they’re once again selling their 100% natural soy wax derived soy wax candle, Light the Way Earth Month, with 100% of the purchase price going towards micro-grants to obtain clean and safe drinking water in more than 30 countries.
In honor of Earth Day, Kiehl’s is donating $100,000 to Recycle Across America, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to delivering society-wide solutions that eliminate public confusion, stimulate the environmental economy, and expedite progress. In tandem, 100% of net proceeds from its Limited Edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque series, which features Earth-inspired designs by socially conscious influencers (Rosario Dawson, Spike Lee…), will go to the charitable cause.
