Is it just me or does there seem to be a rise in special “days” commemorating the randomest of things? Be it National Candied Orange Peel Day or Lumpy Rug Day, I can appreciate the idea that people are passionate about a wide range of things and every dog should have his day, as the saying goes. That being said, Earth Day is not one of those random holidays.
Earth Day is a day where we can all join together in our feelings of guilt for not doing more to be environmentally aware. Or on the flip side, if you are quite environmentally focused, today is the day where you can talk all you’d like about your compost pile, how you keep your carbon footprint so small, and the evils of plastic water bottles. We are listening and taking notes. Earth Day is also a day where I find myself even more aware of the environmental factors involved with what I put on my face through makeup, skin care, and other body products. So when I read about Birchbox’s Limited Edition Free for All box of ingredient-conscious products, all of which are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMOs, I thought there could really be no better way to celebrate Earth Day than with a natural beauty product binge.
For $44, the Free for All box includes eight products from natural beauty brands like W3LL people, Alima, and Jurlique (to name just a few) as well as the exclusive Birchbox x FEED Project’s beauty pouch (also sold separately here for $16). The cost of the BB x FEED pouch provides 10 meals to a child in need globally through FEED Project’s social programs targeted at alleviating poverty and hunger. How can you not become a fan of FEED’s mission and awesome collaborations like this one with Birchbox?
