ExclusiveEcoSalon partners with top green companies for an amazing Earth Day product offer and charity donation.
We’ve brought together some of the best, most desirable eco-conscious brands to give you The Box: a full sized exclusive assortment of home, fashion, beauty, fitness and body products to keep all to yourself or to give for Mother’s Day. No sample sizes here, honey.
This is a one-of-a-kind offer you won’t find anywhere else. We’ve been hard at work all month with the companies below to score you an exclusive $500 worth of in-demand green goodies for just $99! The conscious brands included wanted you to discover their best products, and we wanted to treat our readers to a fantastic spring shopping deal. And thus, The Box was born.
Secure your order today as it’s first come, first serve. Supplies are extremely limited. You’ll want to order today especially, because in honor of Earth Day, 10% of all Earth Day proceeds will go to the Waterkeeper Alliance, a powerful group making way for “Communities to stand up for their right to clean water and for the wise and equitable use of water resources, both locally and globally.” The vision of the Waterkeeper movement is for fishable, swimmable and drinkable waterways worldwide. (Please go to their site to learn more.)
Just what’s in this Box? You won’t believe it. Here’s what EcoSalon and our brand partners have put together just for you!

Coola Chemical Free Sunblock
Coola’s mineral sunblock with an SPF of 30 is a sheer and natural mineral sunblock that delivers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection for the whole body.

GreenSmart’s Akepa Accessory Pouch/iPad Carrier
GreenSmart’s accessory pouch is is perfectly sized to fit an iPad and is also well-suited for cables, power supply sources, extra drives or batteries. The padded Neogreene construction and the plush lining provide a protected, organized pouch to hold all the things that make your mobility possible. We love Greensmart’s Neogreene for its lack of phthalates, VOCs, chlorine, and metals that are traditionally present in neoprene, and we also love that the company uses 25% less energy to manufacture and 25% less petroleum to produce their products.
You will, too!

Sir Richard’s Vegan Condoms
Sir Richard’s believes safe sex is a basic human right and with only a fraction of the global demand for condoms being met each year, they’re donating one condom for every one sold to patients in Haitian healthcare centers. Healthcare providers in the settlement camps and clinics have expressed a need for more free condoms to keep a probable surge of new HIV infections from happening in the post-disaster regions of the country. That the condoms are made from 100% natural latex and without the dairy product casein, which coincidentally also makes them vegan-friendly, is just the sexy sugar on top.
(Box of 3, retail value of $6)
Loomstate’s BLANK V-Neck Tee
Quite possibly the best t-shirt going, Loomstate’s BLANK V-Neck in Eclipse Purple will be one of many you collect for your t-shirt drawer. Made from 100% organic cotton and detailed with signature Loomstate skewed seams, this insanely soft tee features the perfect length, perfect sleeve and perfect neckline. It’s almost as if they created it to perfectly sculpt a woman’s body. (We’re pretty sure they did.)
All of the The Box’s Loomstate t-shirts are sized medium to fit many different body types. Several EcoSalon editors of different shapes and sizes wear the medium well.
(Retail value of $40)
VivaTerra’s Chindi Mat (and $75 discount on all merchandise!)
This bright and cheery Chindi Mat from VivaTerra was crafted in the tradition of rag rugs and potholders. We think it’s the perfect addition to any green girl’s eclectic, personal decor scheme. Rescued from material scraps, tightly woven Indian Chindi begins as a mound of remnants and ends up as vibrant domestic flooring solutions. Each mat is one-of-a-kind and can be used a number of ways including as a bath or kitchen mat, door rug or gardening pad.
It doesn’t stop there! VivaTerra is also offering $75 off any $250 purchase including sale and clearance items, which with Mother’s Day coming up fast, is your golden ticket (and box). Look for the certificate in The Box.
(Retail value of $39 and $75)
Good Clean Love
We’re not sure we have to say anything more than what the Good Clean Love site says: “Good Clean Love products are even better together! When you change the scent, you change the love experience. Using our aphrodisiac products in sequence for multilayered foreplay and then long lasting and luxurious lubrication is a gift that will keep giving back to you.”
Yes, please. Founder and Loveologist, Wendy Strgar, created her core products to meet the personal intimacy needs in her own marriage of 24 years, which in turn inspired her to create a family of products using healthy and natural ingredients that make love accessible in relationships.
Includes Body Candy, Love Oil and personal lubricant.

In 2000, founder Zhena Muzyka’s son, Sage, was born with a severe birth defect and with a mountain of medical bills, she was struggling but determined to earn the money it would take to pay for the surgeries that would save Sage’s life. Drawing on her degree in aromatherapy and a love of tea, and backed by a little seed money from friends and family, Zhena embraced her Ukranian Gypsy heritage and became a tea cart peddler on California street corners, and consequently, saved her son.

Alima Pure Eye Shadow in an EcoSalon Exclusive Obsidian
Alima Pure started out making mineral makeup because they cared deeply about women’s health as much as the planet. They use only the purest cosmetic-grade mineral pigments with no additives, fillers or fragrances that can irritate your skin or clog your pores.

We love that the shadow can be used wet or dry as a lid shadow or eyeliner. Multi-tasking products rule.

Zoya’s Kimmy Nail Polish
Future Natural, our beauty brand partner for The Box, says of Zoya nail polish: “The average nail polish is basically nothing more than a refined version of automobile paint. We know they make your nails look gorgeous, but they contain a hefty amount of dangerous toxins (dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde). Zoya contains none of these chemicals.” Available in a great range of fashion colors and voted longest wearing nail polish by Womens Health Magazine, as well as being listed in Lucky Magazine’s Green Guide. And it’s recommended by the EcoSalon beauty team.
