This year, we’re all more conscious than ever of products that are “green.” And,with Earth Day just behind us, it’s time to re-think some of our beauty routines and try to make them more planet-friendly. not long ago, I reviewed ecoTools, a line of cosmetics brushes & bags that are not just green, they’re great (and affordable). Each individual brush has a sturdy handle made from sustainable bamboo and the collar holding the bristles is crafted from recycled aluminum, making the brush green and lightweight.
For Spring, and especially for mother’s day, bridesmaids gifts, graduations and for a little personal treat, I’d like to suggest the new additions to ecoTools by actress (and environmental activist) Alicia Silverstone.
This month, The ecoTools by Alicia Silverstone debuted at Walgreens, Target and Walmart. There are six different cosmetics cases and brush & bag collections feature eco-friendly materials such as natural hemp, recycled PET, non-toxic ink, and tree-free paper. Not to mention, all of the cases are $15.99 and under!The cases feature a natural-colored, textured hemp fabric featuring embroidery of delicate purple flowers, and green leaves. I’ve already reviewed some of the ecoTools brushes, featuring sustainable bamboo handles and cruelty-free, synthetic Taklon bristles. The cases are just plain adorable, even if you’re not into the green movement. The most expensive is a Hanging Valet at $15.99, which is very reasonable, but I loved the 6-piece Brush Set and Bag that was just $14.99. That’s amazing!
For mothers day, load up thje Deluxe Pencil Case at just $7.99 with eco-friendly cosmetics and a few of ecoTools most essential makeup brushes, and you have a fantastic gift that will used used, appreciate, and loved, every day of the year. If you want to feel even better about buying ecoTools, you’ll be happy to know that giving back as well as being green, is very important to this company. EcoTools has joined forced with 1% for the Planet, an alliance of businesses committed to leveraging their resources to create a healthier planet. They give 1% of ecoTools annual sales to the organization.
The entire Alicia Silverstone ecoTools collection consists of:

Earth Day has just passed, but it’s time to “think green” all year, in all seasons, for all reasons/ ecoTools is all about giving back, getting green, and offering gorgeous tools to make you look and feel good–now that’s a great idea.
