Celebrate Earth Month

With the arrival of April showers also comes earth awareness. There are many ways throughout the year you can pay attention to making your surroundings a little bit greener, but I can't think of a better place to start than in your own cosmetic bag. Check out these green finds that give back:

Kiehl's partnered with Erykah Badu in creating their latest, limited edition Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion, $55. It's loaded with Vitamin E and moisturizing oils that absorb quickly into your skin and leave it silky smooth. 100% of the proceeds up to $100,000 will support waterkeeper alliance.

Amazon Beauty Rahua Organic Leave In Treatment, $28, is made with rain forest grown symbiotic ingredients and used weekly, quickly rebuilds dry, damaged hair. The company's mission is to preserve the Amazon rain forest (which produces over 20% of the world's oxygen) and help indigenous Amazonian tribes survive.

This year, Cargo is taking earth month to a whole new level. Their PlantLove Botanical Lipstick, $20, tube is made completely out of corn and the outer packaging is made of flower paper, which consists of real flower seeds that you can plant. They're also donating $2 from every sale to the St. Judes Pediatrics Research Hospital.

For other fab green finds pick up the May issue of Elle magazine to see their 2009 Green Star Awards.
