I’ve been hearing about Josie Maran’s cosmetic line, which predominantly uses 100% organic argan oil, for many years.  I’ve been reading about the moisturizer’s high vitamin E and essential fatty acid content.  With products ranging in price from $12 to $60, the line is actually reasonably affordable.  And the product selection is great – from make-up to creams to hair products.


Introducing the Green Star May 11, 2008

I remember receiving gold star stickers for doing great work in elementary school. As more and more celebrities launch eco-friendly lines, I thought it would be appropriate to give them “green stars” to acknowledge their contributions to eco-fashion.

The first of these Green Stars goes to Natalie Portman, for her vegan shoe line at Te Casan.  The line is elegant, but has some playful touches and colors.  My favorite is definitely the purple playful “Plath” heel.  I also like that the line has quite a few “classic” shoes, including a faux-snakeskin pump, “Polly.”

One caveat: the high prices (~$350), but proceeds from the sale of these shoes go to support environmental and animal charities.
