Now you guys know that we love il Buco and I think that Paul's coverage of their pig roast in Sidewalk Heaven was one of his highest videos to date! So we're glad to include them in another post as Earth Day kicks off its 40th year and as many of us know there are activities going on all week all over the city! For the 3rd year in a row, il Buco will reduce its customers total LUNCH bill by 15% for one week and 20% for late Afternoon Lunch (monday, April 19 - Saturday, April 24). In turn, il Buco will donate, out of its pocket, the 15% saved by its guests. Basically, if someone spends $100 at lunch, they will only pay $85 (or $80) and il Buco will donate $15 or $20. The food is phenomenal and you get the opportunity to save a little on your meal while helping Mother Earth!
Specifically, all proceeds will go to protecting the Amazon Rainforest (known as the "Lung of the Earth") through the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the world's oldest and largest global environmental network. This is a great cause and that il Buco believes in as it supports the sustainable agriculture movement and wants to continue raising awareness on this issue - pass this along and support so that we can all continue to enjoy the Earth's resources!

Earth Week continues and you know, Kitten Lounge will continue to talk about various items within this category. The response for our Earth conscious items has been so great that it will actually get a day to itself once we get to the month of May! I love how people are sending items about sustainable lifestyles, food and so much more! But of course, we will never give up our beauty segments and I have a great one to share with you that I started using. Can I just say that I have been a Dove user for a number of years (I loved the face pads and use the deodarent but I have found something that I truly love)!
Koh Gen Do is a very sleek line of cosmetics, body products and more. I love that no animals are tested with this line and that it is comprised of raw ingredients. This is not only better for the environment but also for your skin. In addition to the benefits of the products, who doesn't love the packaging? Whether it's makeup or the skincare portion, I love that your bathroom turns into a personal spa simply because the packages have a boutique luxe look to them. I love the idea of having a home spa whether you have a routine or whether you simply decided to take some time for yourself just because.
What pieces do I like and what's considered on my "list" of items for this line? I love the Organic Cotton pads that are super soft! It's so plush that even when you're makeup is on, it doesn't leave fuzzies on your face. The Cleansing Spa Water is literally the best solution when it comes to ensuring that your face is clean and that all of your makeup has been removed. I love the fact that everything this beauty line uses is good for you and the environment at large. I do have a few of the cosmetics; however, I have yet to use them (I will have to try it this weekend when I go out). Find out more about the line by visiting the site and you can order online as well! Your face and body are the ultimate calling card so choose wisely what brands you use and definitely consider Koh Gen Do!
