New York, NY, September 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Beautiful faces and humane hearts will come together at the US Veg Corp’s “Beauty Goes Green” event on Monday, September 24, 7-9:30 p.m., at the Bar at the Dream Hotel in Midtown.
Mingling among the attendees in the hotel’s ground floor bar will be the famous Lettuce Ladies—who wear bikinis made out of lettuce leaves--from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). A PETA spokesperson will also be on hand to speak about vegan beauty products for skin and hair.
The “vegan” designation normally refers to a plant-based diet in which no meat or dairy products are consumed. But when it comes to cosmetics, the term generally means that no animals are involved in the testing phase. At Beauty Goes Green, there will be product samples from a variety of vegan beauty companies, including:
Every Day Minerals, which offers high-quality make-up and skin care products
Bodyceuticals, featuring organic body oils and sprays
Bold For Men, with luxury shaving gels
Brittanie’s Thyme, offering organic skin products and bug repellent
The cost for the evening is a suggested donation at the door.
U.S. Veg Corp is a Brooklyn-based management company whose signature event is the annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival, held every spring. Other vegan-friendly events coming up on the company’s roster include a musical Halloween-themed evening on October 30, and a vegan Thanksgiving series in November.
The Dream Hotel is located at 210 West 55th Street. For further information on Beauty Goes Green and the U.S. Veg Corp, visit usvegcorp.com.
