Origins wants you to have a “green” Christmas. For the second year, the eco-forward beauty brand has partnered with influential leaders in sustainability and eco-friendly living to create short videos that offer socially conscious holiday tips. The first video in the Origins 2012 Eco-Chic Holiday Series features Marie Claire Sustainable Fashion Editor Amanda Hearst, who takes viewers inside the legendary Marie Claire fashion closet to discuss the latest in ethical fashions. Perfect holiday gift options include salmon-skin clutches from Osklen, fluorescent purses from Juicy Couture—an alternative to leather—and sweaters and skirts from ethical fashion brand Edun, which donates a portion of their proceeds to global humanitarian efforts.
Follow Origins on YouTube to see more videos from other 2012 Origins Eco-Chic Ambassadors like health and wellness activist Kathy Freston, accessories designer and stylist Jenny Bird, The Four Seasons Hotel New York Executive Chef John Johnson, and Dr. Andrew Weil, a world-leader and pioneer in integrative medicine. From how to dress and accessorize smartly to how to cook in an eco-friendly manner, this Eco-Chic Holiday Series is sure to be helpful when you shop and entertain this season.
Until Friday at 4 PM, follow @Origins on Twitter and retweet the Amanda Hearst video for a chance to win dresses by ethical fashion brand Suno and a pair of Soludos shoes personally designed by Amanda.
