November 23rd, 20138300067411_f6b5a9f4f8_n-300x200

Eco News Network has a big surprise for readers everywhere. We will be giving away a holiday gift basket to one lucky fan in December! The basket will be filled with Fair Trade/eco-friendly items from companies we have featured throughout the last few months.

Last week we shared our third item (Island Time Pet Toys) and this week we’ve got another green goodie to excite you! The fourth item in our holiday basket is Marula Oil from The Leaky Collection. This skin saver is loaded with antioxidants and omega 9 acid (even more than argan or grape seed oil) and creates glowing, radiant skin. It provides lasting moisture to skin and is great for all skin types since it absorbs quickly. Besides being used for moisture, it can also be used as a makeup primer! It is not tested on animals and is completely vegan and gluten free.

slide01Marula Oil comes from the fallen fruit and kernels of the Marula trees in East Africa. The Leakey collection does not have actual farms and so there is no negative impact on the environment.

The Leakey Collection is a high-end lifestyle company that design products using Fair Trade practices and through sustainable manners. Their efforts in East Africa have brought about many positive changes to impoverished East African communities. Through their T.R.A.D.E. program, they have made a positive impact on the lives of many people in Africa and have created many jobs, especially for women. Read more about how their efforts are changing lives here.

To win this amazing oil and the other things in our basket, simply go to our Facebook page and tell us about the most hilarious holiday gift you’ve ever received or a great homemade gift you received (or gave).
