Now today isn't a beauty post; however, I have been a fan of Yes to Carrots for a number of years as it nourishes the body and comes at a great price point! Now I love that they are working on an important initiative beyond just being an organic beauty brand. Yes to Carrots officially kicked off the Yes to Carrots Garden Challenge! Public schools across the country have the opportunity to create video showing how having a garden in their schools would create positive change! These videos are then uploaded to the site and a winner will be selected. Not only is this something that is supported by this beauty brand but members of the EMA Young Hollywood Board as well (this includes such members as Rosario Dawson and Amy Smart). Schools can enter up to May 20th and on May 26th, Yes to Carrots Seed Fund will award a grant that will assist the school in buying seeds, plants, equipment, irrigation tools, and receiving the education to put this plan into action as a well as a year's supply of tools from Kellogg Garden Products. In addition, they will have Emmanuelle Chriqui as their garden mentor for an entire year.
With the success of having Michelle Obama creating a garden at the White House and also encouraging others to follow suit and the fact that creating a version in our own spaces - this is a great way to give back and to instill organic sensibilities of our own as well! Definitely spread the word about this and see how a school can be affected in a positive way!
