Love the earth - Kiehl's giveaway

Kiehl's & BioRe charity bag, designed by Blanda Eggenschwiler, available in all Kiehl's stores in Switzerland starting May 2013 for 18 CHF

Lately there has been a lot of talk going on about sustainable and eco-conscious consuption not just about energy and food matters but also in the fashion and beauty industry. I am sure by now you are all aware of initatives like H&M's conscious line or for instance Kiehl's return and reward program where you basically get some sort of reward when you return old garments - or in the case of the latter empty products - in order to encourage customers to think about their ecological footsteps. I am all about recycling in many aspects of my daily life and think it's very important we're all aware of such possibilities. A couple of weeks ago when I moved to a new place, I discovered lots of things I no longer need or love as much as I used to and gave many bags full of clothing to friends because it's all about sharing and re-using.

Talking about sharing - recently we were invited to a press conference by Kiehl's and the environmental organization BioRe, who is working on social and ecological awareness projects in Tasmania and India to support local farmers and families. For this charity project, Kiehls and BioRe teamed up to create a limited edition charity bag to be sold in May 2013 in all Kiehl's stores in Switzerland. All revenues will be donated to the organization BioRe to support their projects. Swiss graphic designer Blanda Eggenschwiler created a print for this bag, which is made of organic cotton retrieved by BioRe and processed by Remei.

In honor of earth day (which was last Monday) we would like to give away two of these limited edition bags to our readers. All you have to do is leave a comment under this post and like our Facebook Fan page, if you feel like it. Unfortunately for our international readers, this giveaway is only open for Swiss residents. The winners will be contacted Monday, april 29th and have the option of either picking the bag up themselves at the Kiehl's flagship store in Zurich, where they'll also get generous product samples or email us their addresses to receive the bag by post.

Da ich in Bern schaffe, in Züri wohne und dementsprechend täglich vill Zyt i überklimatisierte Züg verbringe, was sich wiederum negativ uf mis Huutbild uswürkt, wär s'Midnight Recovery Concentrate di perfekte Massnahm um mini Huut wieder chli z'beruhige und pflege.

Eues Giveaway würd mer also gad sehr glege cho. Gueti Sach :)
