Friday Fun: Cargo Plant Love lipsticks

P172734_hero The Curator still has not gotten around to purchasing one of these yet, but really should.  The 60s-inspired packaging of Cargo's PlantLove lipsticks caught my attention when they were first released over a year ago.  This sort of hippie-esque packaging isn't something you see all that much in cosmetics.  Then I discovered that the groovy design correlates to a much bigger idea - biodegradable, eco-friendly packaging.  The lipstick tube is made out of corn, while the outer box contains wildflower seeds that can actually be planted.  And that's not all:  two dollars from every lipstick sold goes to St. Jude's Research Hospital.  PlantLove lipsticks are proof that companies can create artistic, interesting packaging while being environmentally conscious.  

For more on these, check out cargoplantlove.com.  Here you can also plant a virtual flower - for every one planted at the site, Cargo makes a donation to Conservation International.
