Aveda teams up with Elyse Knowles for a limited-edition collab

Aveda has teamed up with ambassador Elyse Knowles for a limited-edition collaboration in conjunction with Earth Month 2019.

To help raise funds for the initiative, Knowles has designed a limited-edition tote bag made from one of the world’s fastest growing plants and biodegradable resources, bamboo. The design, featuring the earth in waterdrop form and the statement ‘Be The Change,' reinforces Knowles commitment to environmental responsibility and the clean water mission. 

100 per cent of proceeds from the limited-edition tote bag will contribute towards WaterAid’s clean water projects, focusing on nutrition, improved access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in India.

"In Australia, we are very lucky to have clean running taps and flushing toilets. We take this for granted but other countries are not so fortunate. The Aveda tote bag is a wonderful way to raise funds and awareness for WaterAid. Using the bag for a trip to the market, the shopping centre or the green grocer is also an incredibly easy way to take a step towards eco-friendly living. Every little bit helps," said Knowles.

The tote bag will be available from Monday April 22, 2019.

Arbonne announces Marie Kondo inspired #DrawerDetox challenge

Arbonne is conducting a nationwide clean-up of all beauty drawers, with the announcement of its #DrawerDetox challenge. The initiative aims to encourage consumers to make conscious decisions about what’s in the products they use, and how many products they really need.

Inspired by Marie Kondo’s philosophy, Arbonne is challenging Australians to take a look at their beauty drawers to make sure each product sparks joy, has not expired, and does not contain any ingredients found on Arbonne’s Not Allowed List.'

The list includes more than 2,000 ingredients that won’t be used in any of its formulas, and directly reflects Arbonne’s rigorous screening of ingredients, its research, and enhanced safety requirements.

Arbonne is encouraging participants to share photos for the challenge on Instagram using the hashtag #DrawerDetox and by tagging @ArbonneAUNZ.

Arbonne's Not Allowed List of ingredients is available here.

On March 28, Just Cuts celebrated its expansion into the UK with the grand opening of its first franchised salon in Southside Wandsworth Shopping Centre, South London.

The salon’s team of stylists are now bringing the Just Cuts premium service at not-so-premium prices to the people of Wandsworth. On the day, stylists gave the first 30 clients free Style Cuts, with everyone else benefiting from a six week special on the cut, which was down from £19 to £15.

“I consider London to be the world centre for hair fashion, so coming over here is a proud moment for the whole Just Cuts team,” Just Cuts founder, Denis McFadden, said. “In the past, we’ve had many British backpackers travel to Australia and New Zealand seeking work in our salons. When the time comes for them to depart, they ask: ‘When will Just Cuts be coming to the UK?’. Wandsworth is the continuation of our UK story."
