Today is Earth Day! How exciting is that? It’s 90 degrees here in Los Angeles and it couldn’t be a more blissful day to celebrate all the green and lush nature trails and beaches that we get to enjoy daily. All over the world people are celebrating #EarthDay. At festivals and concerts in every corner of the globe – hopefully you have gotten a chance to enjoy some of the festivities. Truly if we look at the history of this event, it’s exciting to see how much this movement has grown in just the last ten years alone. But what is it about really, at it’s heart? The fun and music are great but was impetus for this day that has grown into a worldwide movement? Well after doing a little research, it seems that Earth Day had its inception in 1970 when then U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin, saw a dire need for change. After witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, he decided that he needed to rally the people. According to The History of Earth Day:
On April 22,1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies [on the first Earth Day. Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrat. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. ‘It was a gamble,’ Gaylord recalled, ‘but it worked.’
Today, while admittedly we still have a long way to go in terms of environmental protection and change, that first inkling of awareness in 1970 — the notion that if we wanted to create a sustainable Earth and healthy world for our children and grandchildren, we needed to speak out — well it stretched continents.
It’s A Good Day to Be “Green”
Today as we look back at all the progress and celebrate how far we have come, take some time to think about what small changes you might make in creating a more “green” friendly environment. Maybe just start recycling or simply do some research into products that you buy and support those that are “green” or merchants in the neighborhood who do their part to support a greener world. Make a commitment to purchase from them – that is a small but excellent way to support Earth Day. Nonie is and has always been about all natural, green friendly ingredients. We use only plant-based oils, vegan ingredients and practice a strict commitment to remain cruelty-free. No animals have ever been harmed and never will be harmed in the making or testing of our products. We use glass bottles and we believe organic is better. That is our small but impacting contribution to the Earth. What is yours? Share it with us! Feel to tag us and comment on social media and below and let us know. What sorts of Earth friendly practices have you incorporated into your own life? And while you are at it – click on the AHA! line or maybe pick up the excellent SPF for your beach plans this summer.

At A Mother’s Market Near You

Magazine or in ads across social media and you just thought, “Hmm looks good, I’ll get to it later.” Maybe a friend has even suggested trying it but you just haven’t gotten around to it.

Spring is a time when we appreciate all the beauty that nature has to offer. It’s a time of renewal, a clearing out of the old to make room for the new, and nature’s little wake-up call to all of us after a long winter. When hopefully, if there is room for improvement in our lives, we get all get a collective do-over. If perhaps we aren’t looking and feeling our best for instance after the cold season, it’s during the spring when we feel motivated to make a change, get in shape, and finally feel better. Is it also a time for change in your daily beauty routine?
Healthy Skin at Any Age
Healthy skin is an integral part of feeling and looking your absolute best. Taking care of “you” means glowing from the inside out. So, at a time when we take sales inventory and offer huge discounts as we will be doing all through March (read more for the savings), do your own sort of personal intake now. Are you doing all you can to look and feel your absolute best? If not or if you aren’t sure of the answer, then ask yourself. Are you doing everything you know to keep your skin looking and feeling its best? Does your skin glow because it’s so healthy? It should. And age is simply a number – it’s about real health from the inside out. Whether you are a recent college graduate or a parent of a college graduate, your skin deserves to feel and look its very best.
AHA! Healthy, Ageless Skin is Possible
Let’s face it – if you look good, you feel good. If your skin doesn’t look its best, then ask these three questions. 1.) Am I using only all natural, cruelty free ingredients on my delicate skin? 2.) Am I making healthy skin a priority? 3.) Am I seeing brilliant results from my daily skincare routine?
If the answer to any of these questions is “no” then you aren’t putting yourself or your precious skin, first. But… It’s spring and guess what? You get a do-over. The good news is at Nonie of Beverly Hills, all of our products are cruelty free and all natural! The best news is, because it’s spring, we are having a HUGE sale all through the month of March.
It’s our spring into AHA! savings sale where you get 15% off all orders! Happy Spring – we told you it was good news!
Here’s to getting a spring do-over so you too can have a beautiful and healthy Nonie glow!
