Sappho organic cosmetics fearless giveaway

When the Better Back To School Brigade started talking about detoxifying classroom environments, we were thinking big picture. Improving air quality. Eliminating toxic soaps and cleaners. Choosing safer school supplies.

But detoxifying your child's school year might also start with their morning cosmetics routine!

Thus, this weeks giveaway: $300 dollars worth of eco-conscious organic makeup courtesy of Sappho Organic Cosmetics.

Driven by Canadian founder JoAnn Fowler's diligent search for formulations whose ingredients surpass the European Union's standards, Sappho is about making up fearlessly. That means having utter confidence in the safety ofwhat you're putting on your (or your kids) skin .

Since it's launch in 2008, Sappho has become the choice cosmetics for some of Hollywoods most discerning, including Mia Kirshner and Jennifer Beals. Now it's your turn:

Eco-conscious organic makeup giveaway by Sappho Organic Cosmetics includes:

Have just been dealt the C card:( and am sooo into non-toxic anything to be put on my body and in my body. These products would make me feel beautiful at a time when C takes that all away.

Cheers, Joeleen

I received this email September 24, 2013. I decided to enter the contest for Sappho makeup to find that is already closed…..because it was issued September 11, 2013! Why did you bother including it in the current email? I am not pleased.

Be the change you want to see! There are so many things we can do including:

compost — it’s great vitamins for the garden buy organic and buy local — stay healthy recycle, reuse, etc.! Be aware of how you use water and what you pour down the drain be careful of how you dispose of toxic waste — old prescriptions, paint, batteries — these don’t go in the regular garbage

I am expecting my first little one this late Fall, and I really want to make a very conscious effort to be environmentally friendly in any which way I can. We already reduce, reuse, and recycle. I want to be the best role model I can be for my little one to be. Twitter fan@plumerea
