As many of you already know, I am passionate about doing my best to live a greener lifestyle. While my Mercedes isn't exactly a hybrid and I am not a vegetarian, I try to make more environmentally-friendly choices whenever possible. I cloth-diaper, I use green household products, and I love organic and eco-friendly cosmetics. These "safe" cosmetics are free of parabens, pthalates, preservatives, and other synthetic and potentially harmful ingredients.
Speaking of cosmetics, did you know that you can even find great beauty tools that are kind to the Earth? It's true! And the best of the best come from a great company called EcoTools! (Review and giveaway coming soon, so keep your eyes open in the near future!)
So what makes EcoTools special? Here's some info about their products, taken from their website:

After an overwhelming success in 2011, the EcoTools Gives Back campaign is back, giving consumers an easy and direct way to contribute to keeping the planet beautiful. Through EcoTool’s partnership with EarthShare and 1% for the Planet (an alliance of businesses committed to leveraging their resources to create a healthier planet), consumers have the chance to decide for themselves how the brand’s yearly donation will be divided between three inspiring EarthShare organizations – each of which exemplify EcoTools’ quest for living beautifully.
EcoTools Gives Back! Go Vote NOW and Make a Difference!
From July 2 through July 31, fans can visit the EcoTools Facebook page or EcoTools website to participate. The percentage of votes each organization receives is the percent of the total donation that will be contributed.
The three organizations include:
· The Jane Goodall Institute – Working to protect the world’s wildlife, specifically the chimpanzee population, while conserving habitats and raising awareness
· The Conservation Fund – Aims to protect America’s outdoors and strives to build both a healthy environment and a healthy economy
· Ocean Conservancy – Seeks to keep the earth’s oceans clean and free of pollution, while working to keep the coast clear by stopping trash before it reaches the coastline
Inspired to vote? Fans can submit up to five votes per day and votes can be doubled to by “sharing” the Campaign with your Facebook friends. With more people outside enjoying the great outdoors, it’s hard to ignore the beauty all around us.
