This fall, the MAC AIDS Fund is marking a momentous milestone – $100 million raised to help fight HIV and AIDS around the world. The money represents the sale, over the past 13 years, of more than 7.1 million VIVA GLAM lip products of which 100 per cent of the sale price has gone to the work of the Fund.

Our $100 million landmark has been reached with enormous commitment from our VIVA GLAM spokespeople, MAC makeup artists and dedicated customers, said MAC AIDS Fund Executive Director, Nancy Mahon.  The only thing more exciting about reaching this milestone is the prospect of setting and reaching our next fundraising goal and continuing our grant-making and partnerships around the world.

Origins is promoting a brand new re-usable tote promoting eco-friendly living. Origins takes its natural premise one giant leap further changing the beauty landscape by providing consumers with a new choice in personal care products through a collection of skin, body and hair care products certified to meet United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic standards. As the organic movement began to spread its wings from the produce aisles of grocery stores, Origins waited somewhat impatiently for organic capabilities to stretch to the beauty-care arena.

“I Don’t Get Wasted” Shopping Bag | 100% Organic Cotton Canvas $10
What a fun tote bag! Be eco-friendly with this 100% organic cotton canvas tote bag, but fashionable with its cute design and slogan. It’s a handy way to save on plastic bags for those quick trips to the grocery store, or even use it as a book bag! It’s quite large, so ladies with those mammoth purses (yes, I’m looking at you!), you’ll find it accommodating.

BYO Toting this 100% certified organic cotton canvas bag when you shop makes great eco-sense. Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. Billions of these bags end up as litter or in landfills each year. And to make the billions of paper grocery bags used annually, millions of trees are felled each year. Beyond helping to save the environment, 100% of the profits from the purchase of this bag will be donated to the Organic Farming Research Foundation. The OFRF fosters the improvement and widespread adoption of local organic farming practices by sponsoring research and education projects; disseminating the results to organic farmers and growers interested in adopting organic production systems and educating the public and decision-makers about organic farming issues.
