SUSTAINABLE BEAUTY

There are so many ways to give…and all are so important. Festoon is about bringing beauty into the world as well as preserving it for future generations.  In all of our choices, we strive to minimize our ecological footprint.  When deciding on what color line and hair care products to bring to you, we chose Davines because they share our commitment to taking care of the environment and creating beauty sustainably. Davines’ commitment to sustainability spans from the ethically sourced natural ingredients in their products to their product packaging and commitment to education.

For the third year in a row, Davines salons are partnering with The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.  In the first year of the partnership, Sustainable Beauty Day made it possible to plant 6,000 fruit trees in deforested, poverty-stricken areas of Mozambique and South Africa. Last year, the program traveled to Brazil to plant 5,800 more fruit trees!  This year to raise money for low-income communities, Sustainable Beauty Day has been extended to Sustainable Beauty Week… but here at Festoon, we are taking it even further and making it Sustainable Beauty Month!  For the entire month of April, Festoon will be donating 10% of all carbon-neutral Davines product sales on your behalf.

You can join us in supporting worldwide efforts to plant trees at schools with low-income families, improving nutrition and environmental benefits for generations. At both of our locations we will be accepting donations toThe Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.  With any donation of $5 or more, you will receive a Davines Sustainable Beauty pochette as a thank you gift.  Or, you can receive this thank you gift with a $2 donation and the purchase of any 2 carbon-neutral Davines products – Essential Haircare, Oi, and More Inside.  The carbon dioxide emissions generated by the production of the packaging for these 3 lines are offset by the protection and reforestation of nature reserves in Italy and Costa Rica, as established by the Kyoto Protocol.
