It’s The Finale Of Our Weekend-Long Earth Day Extravaganza!
Our eco-friendly fête is still going strong on its third consecutive day! Today, we’ll be schooling you on everything from TSA-approved organic skincare travel kits to cozy and colorful 100% bamboo scarves. Check out our latest environmentally friendly picks below!
iWave Grass Roots Headphones, $29.95. Available at iWaveAudio.com
How can you make a sonic experience eco-friendly? Well, you can start by switching up the way you listen to music on your iPod or MP3 player. The new iWave Grass Roots collection features headphones and iPod cases constructed using renewable materials like bamboo, recycled wood, and hemp and packaged in recycled paper with graphics printed using natural dyes. The headphones pictured above, for example, feature recycled wood accents along the ear cups.
Nepali by TDM Design Bambi Bamilla Scarf, $100. Available at TDMDesignInc.com
This ultra soft, 100% bamboo scarf was hand-made and hand-dyed in Nepal. Measuring 28″ in width by 80″ in length, the Nepali by TDM Bambi Bamilla scarf features Boho chic stripes with a restrained tie-dye feel. Our favorite colorway is the deep eggplant purple with the blush pink contrast pictured above.
Davines Well-Being Natural Tech De Stress Yogurt Buffer Gel, $21. Visit Davines.com to locate a salon.
Eco-friendly and socially responsible, Italian haircare line Davines specializes in products that incorporate all-natural ingredients into their formulas. But rather than sticking to tired and true botanicals associated with healthy hair, Davines insists on exploring the potential benefits of plants, herbs, and fruits through its ongoing research initiatives. Because of this, then, you’ll find such ingredients as fig leaf, tomato extract, pistachio oil, carrot extract, and barley extract in its potent formulations. We’re currently loving the Davines Well-Being Natural Tech De Stress Yogurt Buffer Gel, which gives any style hold without damaging strands or leaving behind any unsightly flaky residue. Whereas most gels dry out your hair, this one nourishes strands with a combination of collagen, which defends hair from stresses like salt water, UV rays, and chlorine; and yogurt, which boasts a high concentration of replenishing minerals and vitamins, among them zinc, calcium, lactic acid, and Vitamins B1, B2, B-6 and B-12.
Collective Wellbeing Carbon-Balanced Travel Kit, $25. Available at CollectiveWellbeing.com
Though we appreciate all the efforts the TSA has made to ensure the safety of flight passengers, every woman who has sauntered down a security checkpoint at an airport can attest to being confused by the rules regarding the acceptable sizes of liquid and cream personal hygiene products. This handy kit from Collective Wellbeing features TSA-approved, travel-sized versions of its best-selling products: a 0.25 oz. tube of its Weightless Daycream, a 0.25 oz. tube of its Night Quenching Cream, a 1 oz. bottle of its Corrective Cleanser, a 1.5 oz. tube of its Dry Skin Relief Body Butter, a 1.5 oz. bottle of its Right to Shine Shampoo, and a 1.5 oz. bottle of its Quick Fix Conditioner. Not only are all the products formulated with certified organic natural ingredients like aloe vera juice, ilipe nut butter, jojoba oil, pomegranate seed oil, and chamomile, but they’re packaged in a jute and organic cotton pouch manufactured with a zero carbon footprint. But Collective Wellbeing’s commitment to the environment goes a step further: for every travel kit sold, the company will purchase enough clean energy credits to offset the greenhouse gas emissions produced by one round-trip, cross-country flight.
Unite Smoothing Shampoo. $22.95, and Unite Smoothing Conditioner, $24.95. Available at Shop.UniteHair.com
Not only are Unite’s haircare products sulfate- and paraben-free, but they contain no gluten (remarkable in and of itself) and are 100% vegan. The Unite Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner both focus on eliminating frizz and fly-aways, boosting shine, and keeping hair looking straight and lustrous. To that end, then, they rely on guar gum to tame frizz, moringa seed extract to protect hair color, panthenol to condition strands, and botanisil to moisturize and protect hair from heat exposure.
