Recently, Dragon launched E.C.O. (Environmentally Conscious Optics), an initiative to actively investigate methods of manufacturing environmentally friendly sunglasses; and the result is the first ever sunglass with material made from 100% renewable origin – which means that Mother Nature replenishes the material used to make the sunglasses at the same rate that it is consumed.
One Spoiled Pretty reader will win a pair of E.C.O. sunglasses, which also features organic packaging, printed with soy-based ink.
To enter, send an email to email@example.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “E.C.O. Sunglasses Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, April 26th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, April 27th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

With quality beauty tools, you get more out of your makeup. And with some TLC, a good set will last a long time. Great makeup brushes come at all price points, and some of my favorites are from a brand called ecoTools.
ecoTools’ brushes are easy on the wallet and on the earth – they feature bamboo handles (which are highly sustainable), vegan bristles, metal from recycled aluminum cans, and reusable pouches printed with plant-based ink.
I am a big fan of the ecoTools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set ($9.99), which includes a Powder Brush, Concealer Brush, Eye Shading Brush, Baby Kabuki Brush, and a linen/hemp cosmetics bag.
These tools rival prestige brushes that cost six or seven times as much. And you will be absolutely blown away by the softness of the bristles and how well they apply your makeup. They make all other brushes green with envy.
