Plant Love-Environmentally Friendly Lipsticks from Cargo

Cargo has launched Plant Love-the first lipstick to contain totally recycled packaging.
It contains wild flower seeds - just wet and grow. The tube is the first ever on the market to use polyactic acid (PLA) instead of a traditional petroleum-based plastic as the base of most lipstick tubes .
PLA is made entirely out of corn and is said to be completely renewable within the space of 100 days.
The box that the lipstick comes in is also biodegradable. It is embedded with seeds from wild flowers. According to Cargo, the packaging simply has to be moistened with water and then it should start growing.
I simply love this idea, and hope that it catches on more. In the meantime, these lipsticks are a great start in using more recyclable packaging.
The PlantLove collection of lipsticks includes 12 new shades some of which were designed by celebrities Courtney Cox, Mariska Hargitay, Lindsay Lohan, Evangaline Lilly, Sarah Chalke and Maria Menounos.
This lipstick also has no mineral oils or petrolatums. In other words, it's good stuff. Retails for 20.00.
Kudos to Cargo for going the enviromental route.
