CARGO PlantLove Professional Collection: Red Lips, Green Conscience

Looking and feeling PlantLove™
Cargo Plants Revolutionize Eco-Friendly Beauty

The PlantLove™ story began in 2004 when CARGO launched their legendary line of PlantLove™ lipsticks. The first-ever compostable lipstick case made entirely of corn, PlantLove™ kicked off a new wave of environmentally friendly beauty packaging. In 2008, CARGO rounded out the line with a full collection of eco-conscious color. "We wanted to create a line of high-performance, professional-grade makeup while still keeping the environment top of mind," said Hana Zalzal, founder of CARGO Cosmetics. "Women shouldn't have to compromise. They can have beautiful makeup and still be environmentally conscious at the same time" The PlantLove™ claim to fame is its high-performance payoff and all-encompassing environmental commitment. Cargo worked relentlessly to develop products that met the rigorous standards demanded by ECOCERT™, an international certification that guarantees products are eco-friendly through all aspects of product and production, dramatically reducing its environmental footprint.

Those who read For the Love of Beauty may already know the significance of the ECOCERT™ designation, but for those who don't here's an explanation from CARGO. Quite simply, it's responsible beauty. From process to packaging, ECOCERT™ is an internationally recognized standard guaranteeing all product, processing, and packaging meet the strictest natural, organic, and environmentally friendly requirements. Products with the ECOCERT™ Natural designation are of 100% natural origin, have no synthetic dyes, phthalates, petrochemicals, parabens, synthetic fragrances, or colors and are housed in recyclable packaging. The compostable packaging is made entirely from corn, a renewable and abundant resource. Even the boxes are made from 100% post-consumer waste paperboard and the mill supplying this paperboard manufactures it under carbon-neutral conditions using 100% renewable energy. Finally, these cosmetics are only manufactured in countries with solid environmental and labor records.
