Pollinator Partnership: Our 2019 Giving Tuesday Recipient

conservation donations giving back giving tuesday non profit skin care

We’ve had an incredibly busy week here at Mad Hippie headquarters! It began with our annual Black Friday-Cyber Monday sale. Our small, but mighty team found themselves amidst stacks of cardboard boxes, tidy piles of tissue paper, and bins filled with products, all while working hard to fulfill hundreds upon hundreds of web orders (thank you!). We finally made it to the end of the week, which is perfect timing for celebrating this year’s Giving Tuesday recipient!Giving Tuesday is often quietly shuffled to the sidelines considering it falls on the tail end of highly anticipated pre-season holiday sales.

Five Easy Ways to Repurpose Our Glass Bottles

We receive lots of messages from our consumers every week (Did you know you can connect with us? We love hearing from YOU!).  One of the questions that's been popping up quite a bit recently surrounds our glass bottles and what to do with them once their beloved contents have been used up.  Trust us, we get it!  With the zero waste/low waste movement gaining more popularity, and plenty of cities across the globe reducing the accessibility or possibility of recycling certain materials, it can be really frustrating to figure out what to do with a growing collection of serum and cleanser bottles without feeling guilty about our eco...
