Amy Smart is teaming up with LovingEco, a hot new ethical flash sale site, to help raise funds for the Environmental Media Association. She has selected some of her absolute favorite eco-finds including Josie Maran Cosmetics, fabulous dresses from LTR, stylish sustainable jewelry from Kyler Designs, sunglasses from Kayu, sexy swimsuits from Kelly B and more fun dresses from Curator. And we’ve teamed up with LovingEco to offer up an incredible giveaway of eco-swag valued at $595 (see below).

LovingEco gives consumers all the style they want, but without the guilt. They host weekly sales (items up to 70% off) with companies that produce ethical items. What does ethical mean? Well, they label each product with terms like cruelty free, vegan, fair trade, recycled, made in the USA and organic.

In addition to introducing awesome responsible companies to kind-hearted fashionistas, they donate 3% to charity. How does a charity get chosen? LovingEco has a different eco-influential “tastemaker” each week who curates a boutique featuring the best products from that week’s brands. The tastemaker chooses which charity gets the cash.

This week, actress Amy Smart will be the tastemaker for LovingEco. By signing up for LovingEco’s daily deals, you’ll get the inside scoop on Smart’s eco style picks and, of course, the ability to buy ethical items at a nice discount.

Amy isn’t just in it for the fashion. She is the chairperson for the Environmental Media Association’s Young Hollywood Board. The EMA believes that through television, film and music, the entertainment community can affect change in a positive way. That means if you see a character on your favorite show coming home from shopping with his or her reusable bag, the EMA might have talked to the writers about including that eco-friendly behavior. They were also the smarty pants behind getting celebs to drive hybrid cars to award shows instead of riding in gas guzzling limos.

So you love the idea of LovingEco and you are dying to get your hands on some major eco swag?

One winner will be selected to receive a $595 value prize pack from LovingEco that includes:

Josie Maran Eye Love You Eye Palette (retail $42)
Josie Maran Black Mascara (retail $22)
KAYU Rawa bamboo sunglasses (retail $180)
Kelly B Women’s Hazel V-Back Dress in black size medium (retail $138)
Kyler by Joy O Rhodonite : Devotion pendant necklace in steel – large (retail $78)
KAYU Lillian Envelope clutch in purple (retail $135)

  • Amelia Koenig

    I love the Josie Maran’s cosmetics. I’ve used Josie Maran’s argan oil and the smell was lovely. Also, eco-friendly/animal-friendly cosmetics are hard to find. The popular brands, Covergirl, for instance use animal testing, and there’s nothing beautiful about that.

    I Signed up for FREE on LovingEco and created an account, Yay!! It is hard to pick a favorite item from the deals this week from LovingEco, they are all sensational! But if I had to pick one favorite item I would say the “Style For Change’ Organic Tank for a Cause! I choose this item because I am passionate about supporting charities, and I love that 100% of the proceeds can go to the charity I select! I think this is fantastic! It would make me feel so much pleasure to wear this tank proudly knowing that I am wearing a hot cool item that make an impact for someone somewhere!!

    Thank you so very much for the wonderful chance to enter!!
