To say that I’m so excited about this year’s Green and Gorgeous campaign is a huge understatement.
The 2009 campaign, featuring spas and salons across the nation offering eco-friendly services and lowering their negative impact on the environment, was a huge hit.
And I think that’s because most of us want to do right by the environment, but we don’t have the time to make a j-o-b of it.
I’m a big believer in making small steps to make the world a prettier place. And it looks like you guys are, too.
Green and Gorgeous doesn’t begin until June 5, but we’re already planning for it at PrettyCity and that has me thinking eco-chic. Watching the news of late, I can’t help but notice all the fuss about what really makes certain beauty products eco-friendly. And while I don’t know it all, I can tell you that very question is one of the many mysteries we’re going to be working on unraveling for Green and Gorgeous —with the help of environmental experts, natch.
In the meantime, here’s what I do know about a fabulous product from h2o plus called Sea Pure Cleansing Body Oil ($22 at h2oplus.com).
1) It’s 100% Vegan and Biodegradable
2) It does NOT contain parabens, synthetic fragrances, sulfates, petrochemicals or phthalates (aka plasticizers, yuk!)
3) It’s winter skin’s best friend; acting as both a cleanser and moisturizer in one. It leaves my skin soft as silk and it’s so gentle, I now swear by it for bathing my two boys as well.
This is just the thing you need when winter has beat your skin up, and you’re ready to fight back. And best of all, it’s quick and easy. Just cleanse skin in the bath or shower, and with one small step, skin emerges fully moisturized. Because you want do right by your skin, too, but your life is waiting.
