LIV GRN, a label developing organic tee-shirts printed with ethical, green messages, has released the fragrance versions of their fashion-with-a-conscience approach. Or as they prefer to put it, "eco-savvy" tack. While the scents are not all-natural and all-organic or eco-certified per se (we verified), they can still claim to be "biodegradable, sustainable, non-toxic" as well as free of a number of black-listed ingredients such as Phtalates, Sulfates and Triclosan (we're sparing you the ugly until the review.) The collection called C2C LIV GRN launches with three perfumes: Cherry Wood, Earth, Natural.
Sydney Holland, co-founder of LIV GRN said,
“Our mission of making style and sustainability an ongoing part of our culture is brought to life
perfectly by our new fragrances," “We at LIV GRN are inspired by William Mcdonough and Michael Braungart, authors of Cradle to Cradle, a fantastic, optimistic view of creating goods and services that generate ecological and social value. It was important for us to create a family of fragrances that wouldn’t sacrifice attention to environmental impact in order to achieve beauty and style.”...
The fragrances are available both as Eaux de Parfum and oils, the latter in mini roller-balls.
