Living sustainably is about being kind to the environment, but it is also about choosing products that are safe for you and the people who make them.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
Today, EcoPlum, a green media and e-commerce company, puts the focus on personal health and well-being with a 15% fall savings offer on all eco-friendly products in its online boutique, including eco chic lines of safe cosmetics, environmentally friendly clothing, and chakra jewelry.
EcoPlum’s commitment to sustainability is built around a personal focus on green living. At EcoPlum’s online shop, customers can buy for themselves and their families knowing products have been chosen carefully with both environmental and personal impact in mind. These products have recognized third-party eco labels, are made of recycled materials, and/or comply with “fair trade” standards for imports. Skincare and makeup lines use organic and natural ingredients, listed completely, so consumers may confirm them as safe to apply on their skin.
Gia Machlin, CEO and Founder of EcoPlum describes it this way, “Living sustainably is about being conscious of and feeling good about the choices you make. It’s about being kind to the environment, but it is also about choosing products that are safe for you and the people who make them.”
The 15% off fall sale coupon runs through midnight EST September 30, 2013 and will be applied automatically at checkout to all products. The sale is aimed at encouraging people to take environmental action for themselves with purchases they make. Safe cosmetics, eco-friendly clothing and chakra jewelry are highlighted in the sale.
Gia adds, “When you think about the impact from harmful pesticides or carcinogens in clothing and skincare, then adapting a green lifestyle becomes very personal. I also feel better buying a product made in a place that cared about worker safety and health.”
Personal health is a key priority in EcoPlum’s selection of safe cosmetics with the skin’s absorption of these products, including: natural skincare, mineral makeup, shampoos, and bath products. A current article at EcoPlum, Chryso’s Eco Friendly Beauty Buys: SPF Makeup, reviews a number of protective makeup brands. Chryso’s column is a recurring series.
In its fashion selection, EcoPlum also emphasizes personal health considerations, as consumers seek out non-toxic materials for them and their children to wear. The company offers eco-friendly clothing with style for women, including: dresses, slacks, tops, sweaters, lingerie and exercise/yoga attire. The online shop also includes a growing kids’ clothing area.
The chakra jewelry, with its relation to healing and individual well-being, is also highlighted in the sale this month. The gemstones in chakra jewelry correspond to different parts of the body and the energy generated in those particular areas. EcoPlum carries over 100 pieces of chakra jewelry, along with a large selection of other handmade and fair trade jewelry designs. For an understanding of chakras and what they mean, EcoPlum’s Holistic Muse column discusses it in Chakras – Rules of Energy.
In addition to the sale, customers at EcoPlum have the added benefit of earning EcoChipz rewards points on all purchases. Like other rewards programs, accumulated points may be used for future purchases at EcoPlum, Where it Pays to Buy Green. But this unique program also allows customers to donate their points to a number of environmental causes listed at EcoPlum. Among these are the Sierra Club and NRDC.
