Leave it How You Found It: Earth Day

Today, as I'm sure you are aware by now, is Earth Day Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment.

Something us beauty girls should be very aware of is consumption and packaging. Luckily, some of our favorite brands can help us recycle when we're done:

  • Origins will give you a free sample of an Origins product every time you bring in an empty from any make up brand
  • MAC will give you a free lipstick (counters) or eyeshadow (stores) for every six MAC containers you bring. Just check the package for B2M printed on the cardboard. 
  • Kiehls gives you new products for old! 3 empty Kiehls packages earns you a lipstick, another 2 and you get a travel sized product, and then a further 5 and you get a $25 product. 
One thing I've been doing for the last couple of years is refusing all plastic bags in stores and bringing my own LL Bean tote everywhere for shopping. Little things like that make such a big difference in the world and if we can all do a few small things, bigger change will come.

What's your favorite eco-tips?
