. Check out www.iwalkforwater.ca

Also happening on April 22nd is Appointments for the Earth

is joining forces again this year with Walmart, Terracycle
and Evergreen Canada
Terracyle’s Beauty Brigade is a waste management program aimed to ensure that the life of beauty products is not over once the bottle is empty.
To participate in the Beauty Brigade simple sign up at Terracyle
, and download a postage label. Once you have collected enough packaging to fill a collection box you can ship out your package for free via UPS.
Also for every Garnier product sold at Walmart in April, Garnier will donate $0.25 to Evergreen Canada
to create more environmentally sustainable cities.
Also in support of Evergreen
and in honour of Earth Day 100% of the net proceeds of the Limited Edition Label Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream
will go towards the cause. Alanis Morissette
has collaborated with Kiehl’s Canada for this initiative.
The Limited Edition Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream
($56 for a 125 mL jar) is formulated with sensitive skin in mind, is paraben, silicone, dye and fragrance free formula will help rebalance skin’s hydration levels and provides all day moisture with no-shine.
LUSH always has great initiatives and ideas all year round! They offer many solid shampoos, conditioners and massage bars – there is no waste with these solids forms of the products and no packaging!
Try out the Big Sold Conditioner
which contains softening coconut oil to help condition hair and tame flyaways. For the kids (or adults that are kid’s at heart!) Green FUN
is a solid too and is a 4-in-1 product for your body, hair, bubble bath and fun (mouldable like play dough!). Gift wrapping can also be very wasteful but it seems a little improper to present a gift without the wrapping! Check out the many Knot-Wraps
available at LUSH – you can use them as gift wrap, wear in your hair or around your neck making recycling truly fashionable.
In order to encourage all things organic, compostable, natural and recyclable David’s Tea
is doubling up their usual rewards until April 22nd. Get $1.00 (normally $0.50 off) when you refill your tin with 50g or more of one tea. Get 20% off (normally 10% off) your drink when you fill up your travel mug.
