The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970, and was organized as an environmental “teach-in” with scholarly debate. Since then, the annual holiday has gotten a bit sexier. Hippies, vegan rock stars, eco-celebrities, and green-minded types now embrace April 22 (or the entire month) as a chance to pay respects to the planet while also enjoying some sustainably good times. With that mind, we rounded up the ten best Earth Day beauty deals, worthy causes to support with a click, and tree-planting festivities to help make it easy to be green come Friday.
Tickets are sold out to the second annual Origins Rocks Earth Month concert with Train tonight, but the gig will be streamed live at 8 p.m. and rebroadcast tomorrow on Origins’ site to extend the global celebration. As added incentive to tune in, Origins will plant a tree through its partner American Forests: Global ReLeaf on behalf of every viewer.
Here’s a good reason to prune your potions stash on April 22. Bring any skincare product from any brand into any Origins store and you’ll receive one of its full-size, paraben-free cleansers. The tubes are made with limited-edition graffiti-designed packaging that’s derived from 30 percent post-consumer plastics with caps crafted with 100 percent recycled plastics.

Fusing art and beauty in a salon setting is starting to become something of a trend among New York’s newest hair haunts. ION Studio, which opened last fall to rave reviews about its green design and expert styling, hosts rotating exhibitions at its Wooster Street digs (the Italian founders’ most recent curatorial jaunt featured the paintings and photographs of Mexico City-born artist Erika Harrsch). And last night, the Patrick Melville Salon and Spa opened its newly remodeled doors to celebrate a unique partnership with Soho’s William Bennett Gallery. Celebrity hairstylist Patrick Melville and his partner in crime, colorist Rick Wellman, hope to redefine the typical salon atmosphere by integrating the beauty of art into the art of beauty, they explain, lining the walls of their Rockefeller Plaza space with rare works by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Marc Chagall, and Joan Miró. The collection will rotate every six weeks, a timeframe that correlates with the average duration of a cut and color, and is intended to bring a more complete sensory experience to the clientele: You’ll come for their exclusive Bio-Lights organic highlighting technique and a little on-site acupuncture, and stay to ruminate on cubism.
