In celebration of Earth Month 2010 and Origins Earth Initiatives, the all –natural beauty company will host its first “Origins Rocks Earth Month Concert” in NYC on April 19th. Fans are invited to the free star-studded concert at Webster Hall New York City featuring Grammy Award-Winner Macy Gray. The partnership is particularly symbiotic since Macy’s new single “Beauty In The World” captures the sentiment of Earth Day so perfectly. The concert will also include performances by new artist Ryan Star and Jon McLaughlin.
In keeping with the spirit, one free concert ticket will be offered to those who bring at least one empty cosmetic package, regardless of brand, to Origins retail stores in NYC, Westchester and the Garden State Plaza Mall (no purchase necessary, while tickets last.)
The company already has a recycling program in place at all of its stores which may seem like a small step until you learn that everyday packaging accounts for approximately 1/3 of all landfill waste ( per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.) MAC Make-up also has a similar program but only accept their brand empty cosmetic containers.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the first annual Origins Rocks Earth Month Concert,” exclaims Macy Gray. “Origins is known for its industry-leading commitment to the people and the planet. I am proud to be partnering with a brand that aligns with my beliefs of planting trees and cleaning up the earth for future generations.”
