Women are doing all kinds of crazy things to retain their youthful appearance. A spa in Tokyo has recently launched its newest anti-aging treatment that involves the use of live snails called the “Celebrity Escargot Course”.
Apparently snail secretions have been being used for beauty purposes for thousands of years; who knew? But this new facial treatment is aimed specifically to get the benefits right from the source. For just over $300, your face can get covered in snail mucus that contains hyularonic acid, proteins, and antioxidants. The snails themselves are fed only organic vegetables to make sure they are nice and ripe for the treatment.
During the 60-minute facial, they place the snails on your cheeks and forehead allowing these creepy crawlers to enhance your natural glow, help your skin retain moisture and soothe inflammation. This procedure can also be effective in the recovery of skin cells, healing damaged skin, and even helping skin that has been damaged by UV radiation. This unique facial has been making its way through the news world in major publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Marie Claire. People just can’t seem to get enough of our slimy little friends!

Eco-Fashion: Going Green exposition at The Museum at FIT explores fashion’s relationship with the environment. “Eco-fashion” is contemporary, but the fashion industry has had a long connection with the environment from the growth process and manufacture of fibers, sometimes obscure dyeing practices, debate of leather and fur, the health and treatment of industry workers, to incredible strides to protect the environment made my some of the hottest designers in the industry. This fascinating exhibit explores the history of the industry and features some of the finest examples of sustainable fashion by current, cutting-edge labels, including Ciel, Bodkin, Edun, FIN, and NOIR. The exhibition runs through November 13, 2010 in the Fashion and Textile History Gallery at The Museum at FIT, New York City.
Global sustainability leader Aveda(tm) and non-profit organization Green America have awarded BOHO Magazine the prestigious 2009 ‘Aveda Environmental Award for Magazines’ in the New Launch category. Boho is the FIRST fashion & beauty magazine to be receiving this type of award. After just one year in operation, it is truly a great honor to have BOHO Magazine recognized by the leader in corporate environmental continuity.
This award recognizes the achievement of magazines committed to environmental leadership in an industry where tragically, less than 2 percent of all magazine paper contains any recycled content.
Collectively, Boho and the two other category winners, have saved 64,794 trees, conserved 20,60 BTU’s of energy, saved 5,653,166 pounds in greenhouse gases, conserved 30,068,235 of wastewater, and 1,455,240 pounds of solid waste.
Since its launch in 2008, BOHO Magazine has been committed to promoting eco-conscious products and practices, and using complementary eco-minded packaging. BOHO has ushered a new era for fashion magazines by delivering high fashion and beauty tips while also significantly reducing its impact on the environment. While similar high gloss magazines would require 296 tons of virgin wood from the forest, BOHO magazine prides itself on the fact that it uses none.
Congratulations to Gina La Morte and the team at Boho Magazine! We wish you continued success!

The team at MTL is ready to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! This morning I locked away the hairspray, banned all plastic, and made a breakfast entirely from the local farmers market produce. I was even feeling so much into the spirit that I decided to reuse my same dress from yesterday! Only two people noticed…
Taking as little transportation as possible this week is my goal as well as a strict vegetarian diet. I’m thinking…tofu stir-fry for dinner?
My Go Green tip of the week: Gather the random construction paper and markers to create Thanksgiving cards out of recycled paper. Send them to your family for a quick note of thanks or reach out to a homeless shelter as each year they look for different ways to brighten the smiles of the hungry and homeless.
Everyone is getting involved this year including many of our favorite celebs. Take a peak at Bravo’s greenest celebrities including the sexy Brad Pitt and dedicated vegan Alicia Silverstone!
