We know we should use less plastic, opt for products that are chemical-free and ideally, locally made. That’s quite the check-list though, and it can be daunting to know where to start.
If going green in your salon is on your to-do list, The Green Edit is a good place to start. Founded by organic make-up artist Cathy Tolpigin, The Green Edit is a showcase of the best in organic beauty and lifestyle products.
Taking place at Sydney’s Terrace on the Domain on March 12, the event aims to encourage business owners and consumers alike to support and purchase from trusted brands that are healthy, clean, cruelty-free, and sustainably produced and packaged.
“The Green Edit is a unique platform which supports truly green brands and their founders by connecting them with media, influencers and buyers to provide promotional and distribution opportunities. It also connects brand founders directly to consumers to build brand and product awareness, loyalty and create a community,” said a representative of the event.
With a growing list of exhibitors already signed up to the event – including Australian Clay Co, BiotySpa, Dr Hauschka, Optima Nutricosmetics, SeaZinc, Vanessa Megan Skincare, and loads more – it’s set to be a true celebration of all things planet-friendly.
Open over two time slots – 3-6pm and 6-9pm – tickets include access to panel discussions featuring inspiring brand founders, organic facials by Gaia Retreat, organic make-up and hair touch-ups, and a whole series of skincare masterclasses.
In addition, for every ticket purchased, The Green Edit will plant one tree to help regenerate areas affected by the Australian bushfires.
All exhibiting brands are rigorously vetted by the Green Edit Team to ensure their green credentials, so salon owners can be sure that any products they trial or purchase are genuinely doing their bit for a happier Mother Nature.
