Okay, I will admit – I love beauty. Duh! I also really appreciate brands that are doing their part to take care of the environment that I love so much. From recycling old products to donations to worthy causes; here are a few neat ones worth telling you about.
The popular nail polish brand and celebrity favorite, ZOYA is making it easier for you to get the colors you want at a discount and recycling old nail polish through their Zoya Earth Day Nail Polish Exchange. Here’s what you need to do:
- Visit www.zoya.com and add a minimum of 6 bottles of Zoya Nail Polish (no more than 24 bottles) to your cart. Minimum 12, maximum 48 for professional accounts.
- Apply Code: EARTHLUV and a 50% credit will be added to your exchange order – free shipping included!
- Complete checkout and you’re all set! If you need further instructions (including info for our professional program) on sending back your unwanted polish click HERE.
The exchange runs on the honor system, which means you are not obligated to send in your unwanted polish – They assume you’re going to do the right thing, but I suggest to send it! Many people donate the polish to a local cause instead, which they are totally cool with. If you choose to send back your polishes, please check with your carrier of choice for shipping guidelines and restrictions for nail polish.
Another amazing beauty brand that is giving back to the environment is INSTYTUTUM Alive Water. I can’t resist a good cause or anything that add the must needed moisture to my face… INSTYTUTUM infuses the purest Sea Heather with powerful samphire extracts to boost cell regeneration and hydrating, leaving the skin feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on anything. Travel size version will fit perfectly into your backpack or purse! All proceeds of the Alive Water are donated to Waves for Water, which provides clean water filters to impoverished communities all over the world. The tie in with the charity is quite cute and very honorable.
