Good Afternoon Brides,
We are huge supporters of helping the environment and doing our part at Shaadi Bazaar. In honor of Earth Day many companies have launched beauty products that are created with sustainable ingredients and/or have proceeds go towards a charity that helps the environment. We can’t share all the products here otherwise you might need to carve out an hour just to get through them all, but we will give you the links to other blogs that have them.
Kiehl’s created the Limited Edition Label Art series in honor of Earth Day. The limited edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque with lids designed by celebrity contributors Spike Lee, Florence Welch, Mark Ruffalo, and Rosario Dawson are available through April. The Masque has ingredients like oatmeal and aloe vera soothe and hydrate your skin. . In addition to donating $100,000 to non-profit organization Recycle Across America, the net profits of this beauty find with be donated. The Masque ($23 each) is available at Kiehl’s stores. They are also offering free products in exchange for returned empty bottles.

Multitasking bath products cut down on the number of bottles under the bathroom sink that eventually end up in the trash. Net proceeds from the sale of Green go to the Rainforest Foundation. $20
The glam, natural ingredients-based makeup company, Tarte, created the perfect Earth Day beauty kit. For every one of the limited edition Down to Earth Kits sold, Tarte will donate 20% of the proceeds to WineToWater.org, which provides clean drinking water to communities in need all over the globe. The products in this kit include ingredients like Amazonian Clay.
We love Lush products here at Shaadi Bazaar. These vegan-friendly, preservative-free solid shampoos are perfect for travelers. The colorful bars work up a thick and fragrant lather that leaves hair soft, rejuvenated and shiny. One bar is equivalent to three 8-ounce shampoo bottles, so every time a solid shampoo bar is used, three bottles are kept from the landfill. They can be packed in a Shampoo Bar Tin (made from recycled aluminum) and placed in carry-on luggage. Bars $10.95, tins $3.95. www.lushusa.com.
