Picture 7With the endless array of eco-friendly bath products on the market these days, it takes a special something to get my orGLAMic seal of approval.  Original Sprout caught my eye because in addition to the excellent products, the packaging is one I would proudly display in my home.  Nothing would be more chic than a guest bathroom filled with these simple yet elegant bottles for others to enjoy!  All the products are biodegradable, 100% vegan, free of phytoestrogens, soy, parabens, gluten, dixoanes from sulfates, phthalates & formaldehyde.  The company cars run on biodiesel and the offices have skylights for reduced energy consumption.  In addition, recycled shipping boxes are commonly used and packaging is made of recyclable #2 plastic.  Click here to check out this healthy, orGLAMic line.

glassBased out of Los Angeles, jewelry designer Jenny Gaynor offers precious orGLAMic pieces within her collection.  Creating everything from vases to bracelets, I am a fan of the pieces that are handblown from recycled glass otherwise destined for a landfill. At only $48, I love the orGLAMic chain link bracelet which symbolizes a bond and calls for attachment and connection with others.  The links are made of recycled glass and are tied to biodegradable waxed string (which is available in red, black or chocolate.)  Click here to browse the entire Jenny Gaynor Glass collection.

Hamadi hair care products are the perfect addition to an orGLAMic slew of beauty supplies.  Other than the amazing slogan “tested on actresses, never on animals”, I love the fact that the line is biodegradable, made with 100% organic essential oils and plant extracts, and contains no artificial ingredients, colors or preservatives.  The Lemon Mint Hair Wash, pictured below, smells absolutely devine and refreshing in this summertime heat, while it’s orGLAMic ingredients protect against chlorine discoloration and seal in existing color.

Picture 8If you are in the Los Angeles area be sure to stop by The Green Life (one of my new favorite eco-shops in town) the evening of July 2nd where owner Scott is hosting LA Green Drinks.  Not only is is a great way to meet other eco-minded people, but a stylist from Hamadi will be explaining the line as well as offering style consultations from 7:30pm-9:30pm.  Click here to browse the entire orGLAMic line of products, and here to check The Green Life’s website.

Picture 7Nothing says summertime like flip flops (although I have to admit as an Angeleno I wear them year round!)  OrGLAMic FLOPS are an eco-alternative as they are made out of natural Brazilian rubber instead of synthetic rubber.  The harvesting of biodegradable natural rubber occurs by harmlessly ‘tapping’ into the tree to remove a milky sap from the bark, which doesn’t affect the health of the tree.  When it is time to recycle FLOPS just return the pair to the company and you will receive 10% off of a next pair!  Of course, I posted the sleek, orGLAMic, black pair above – but FLOPS sandals come in 18 different color combinations ranging from cherry to anise.  Click here to browse FLOPS and find a store near you.

If I didn’t love this product and the people over at Kiehl’s so much than I would still probably post this picture of Brad Pitt in post-Katrina New Orleans up on orGLAMic.  But, luckily today I can post this tres sexy pic AND tell you about Kiehl’s latest product,  the “Aloe Vera” Biodegradable Liquid Body Cleanser.  I love that this body wash is biodegradable and free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate and dyes.  It is gentle on the skin and is perfectly lightly scented (thanks Sara for sending me a bottle to test out!).  In addition 100% of net proceeds benefit JPF Eco Systems, a charity formed by Brad Pitt and Kiehl’s to support Global Environmental Initiatives.  Click here to support a great cause and bathe yourself in orGLAMic bliss…oh sorry, started thinking about Brad again…
