Origins Skin Care Company invited fans in the tri-state area to the first annual Origins Rocks Earth Month concert earlier this week to celebrate Earth Month and to further the brand’s programs for sustaining the planet.
The free concert, held last night at Webster Hall in New York City, featured headliner Macy Gray and emerging artists Ryan Star, whose single “Breathe” is currently moving up the charts, as well as Jon McLaughlin. Origins chose to partner with the Grammy award-winning artist as her new single, “Beauty in the World,” truly captures the sentiment of Earth Month.
Juliette Lewis, one of Hollywood’s most talented and versatile actors, emceed the event. A long-time fan of Origins and its responsible approach to creating a sustainable business practice, Juliette rocked out with the performers into the night.
In honor of its Return to Origins Recycling Program, Origins offered two free tickets to consumers who brought at least one empty cosmetic package, regardless of brand, to select Origins retail stores in the tri-state area. Origins will be submitting all of the collected empty packaging to be recycled or responsibly converted to energy. Additionally, Origins will be planting a tree on behalf of each of the 600+ concert attendees to help further its Global Plant-A-Tree Program, which will add to the already impressive tally of nearly 24,000 trees planted since the program’s inception.
Origins launched its Plant-A-Tree Campaign in in 2009 in partnership with American Forests’ Global ReLeaf; an education and action program that helps individuals, agencies and corporations improve the local and global environment by planting and caring for trees.
