and Leading Eco-Conscious Beauty Blogs to Celebrate Earth Day
04.20.2011– April 2011, Berkeley, CA- Sustainable skincare company Marie Veronique Organics joins forces with the Center for Environmental Health and like-minded beauty blogs to draw attention to the importance of using safe alternatives to harmful chemicals in consumer products. This Earth Day, April 22nd, Marie Veronique Organics will donate 25% of all sales from MVOrganics.com to the Center for Environmental Health.
Additionally, Marie Veronique Organics will sponsor the Center for Environmental Health's Green Drink event, as well as the coast-to-coast Green Drink parties in partnership with the Center for Environmental Health and Grist.org, taking place on the evening of April 22nd. Leading green beauty blogs such as VivaWoman, Chic Vegan, Ecouterre, and Your Daily Vegan are promoting Marie Veronique Organics' partnership with the Center for Environmental Health by hosting giveaways surrounding Earth Day of Marie Veronique Organics products.
Marie Veronique Organics' mission to provide sustainable, toxic-free products goes beyond just skincare, which is why they are partnering with the Center for Environmental Health. The Center for Environmental Health is working to eliminate the threat that unregulated, synthetic chemicals pose to children, families and communities. Today's industries use over 80,000 chemicals and they create thousands of more each year. These companies are not required to prove that the chemicals are safe to use before releasing them to the public. With the steady rise of cancer, autism, asthma and other serious diseases, the Center for Environmental Health believes that it's time to consider the effects of these chemicals.
Supporting an organization like the Center for Environmental Health is something that Marie Veronique Organics' founder/creator Marie Veronique Nadeau feels strongly about. "The Center for Environmental Health is working towards a common goal that we at Marie Veronique Organics have always believed in- there are many safe and effective alternatives to dangerous chemicals that have found their way into consumer products and our bodies. It's up to us to demand that those alternatives become the standard and we are thrilled to help the Center for Environmental Health in their efforts," says Marie.
At Marie Veronique Organics every day is Earth Day- Marie Veronique Nadeau, along with her daughter, physicist Dr. Jay Nadeau, refuse to include toxins, petroleum-based products, nanoparticles or any ingredient that has not been proven safe for consumers or the environment in their products. Instead, they use scientific studies and direct research to better understand the aging process and then look to nature to find safe and transformative ingredients- proving that toxic ingredients aren't needed to make skin look and feel younger. Marie Veronique Organics operates responsibly and sustainably, sourcing fair organic, local or fair trade ingredients whenever possible, and using biodegradable products, labels, and easily recyclable packaging. Ten percent of company profits are donated annually to non-profits dedicated to creating better opportunities for women and children.
