Celebrate your love of Mother Earth with these eco-friendly must-haves in honor of Earth Day on April 22! We've found the latest environmentally conscious clothing, organic beauty products, gadgets and more to show your passion for the planet in style.
The North Face Venture jacket
Not only will you look stylish on this upcoming Earth Day, but you'll also be donning an eco-friendly outerwear piece that will shield you from those April showers. The North Face Venture jacket for women was created with environmentally conscious textiles, and incorporates natural castor oil from beans into its membrane as an alternative to petroleum-derived materials. It is lightweight and comfortable, and comes in 11 bright spring-inspired colors for singing in the rain!
While you may already be powering your home with solar panels, now you can power up your iPhone, laptop, small 12-volt refrigerator or television with solar power too! What better way to celebrate and honor Earth Day than by skipping the wall outlet and powering up your devices via solar energy? A leading innovator of portable solar power systems, Goal Zero is the perfect pick for this Earth Day. Offering a variety of solar panels, power packs, lights and accessories, Goal Zero will keep something as small as your iPhone or as large as your (small) fridge powered up and ready to go.
Pamper yourself from head to toe with the new Sugar Reef Body Butter from LaLicious. Infused with notes of casaba melon, white tea and ginger, LaLicious' newest scent, Sugar Reef, encapsulates the clean, fresh aroma of an ocean breeze. A little goes a long way -- this rich body butter has been formulated with shea butter to moisturize and smooth your skin to perfection. We love that in honor of Earth Day, LaLicious will donate 20 percent of all Sugar Reef sales during April to Save Our Shores, which is the oldest marine conservation group in the Monterey Bay region. Their mission is to care for the marine environment through ocean awareness, advocacy and citizen action.
If you thrive on sweat-inducing Bikram yoga sessions, or are prone to perspiring when working out, don't leave home this Earth day without one of Gaiam’s yoga towels. Designed for ashtanga, vinyasa and hot yoga, these super-absorbent microfiber mat towels fit perfectly on top of a standard yoga mat, wicking away moisture and drying in half the time of a cotton towel! Available in two sizes, mat towel or hand towel.
PRIMAVERA energizing ginger and lime hand and nail cream
Featuring organic ginger essential oil, organic macadamia nut oil, and organic green tea extract, this rich, moisturizing hand and nail cream provides a spicy aroma to delight and awaken the senses while protecting skin and strengthening nails. Tuck some in your desk drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up during the day!
This sporty shirt for golf or other active outdoor pursuits is made from 100 percent recycled pop bottles! This unique recycling process converts post-consumer plastics into high-quality performance yarns, making the fabric extremely soft -- plus, it wicks away moisture with ease and is anti-bacterial, too. We think you'll want one in all three colors.
The tiniest tree-hugger in your family will love to snuggle up in this 100 percent organic cotton blanket on Earth Day! Personalized just for him or her, it makes an excellent baby shower gift, especially with the adorable matching organic onesie and bib, all embroidered in brown thread. We like that it's made in the USA, too.
Wrap yourself up in luxuriously soft organic bamboo in a dreamy design -- perfect for romantic dinners on the town or as a casually cool dress during the day. Made to flatter and fit any body type, the GGO organic bamboo wrap dress is comfortable yet sexy, and is available in seven gorgeous colors in sizes XS-L.
Using a holistic approach and drawing from Mother Earth's herbal ingredients, Sulwhasoo is the perfect must-have to celebrate Earth Day. Their nutrient-rich concentrated ginseng cream revives damaged and depleted skin at the deepest layers -- restoring that youthful glow!
In honor of Earth Day, forgo the tree and plant a magical fairy garden right on your own windowsill with your little ones! This whimsical kit includes everything needed for kids to grow an enchanting mix of fairy flowers and learn about nature at the same time, and once the seedlings have grown, they can be planted in your own backyard.
Put a spring in your step while leaving a softer footprint on the planet with the new Zoe sandals from Naya Shoes! Environmentally conscious women will especially love that they are dressed in eco-friendly style all the way down to their feet, with this shoe that's crafted using vegetable-tanned leathers and linings, natural or recycled fabrics and footbeds that contain natural cork. The Zoe is available in four bold colors, including turquoise, hot mustard, coffee bean and black.
With a crisp, clean scent, Equavie's moisturizing serum provides daily antioxidant protection to the face and neck. This intensely moisturizing facial serum quickly rehydrates the skin, leaving the face soft and glowing as well as ultra-nourished. Your face is in for a treat this Earth Day!
