With so much beauty in the world, it's no wonder that Origins decided to represent for mother earth. On Monday, April 19th, 2010, the Lauder-owned cosmetics company (Origins), presented its 1st annual ORIGINS ROCKS EARTH MONTH concert at Webster Hall (NYC).
The event, broadcast live on the company's website: www.origins.com/liveconcert, was a smashing success... and it was FREE! As part of Origins 'Return to Origins Recycling Program,' two free tickets were offered to individuals who brought in at least one empty cosmetic package (regardless of the brand); with all submitted packages being recycled or responsibly converted to energy! WOW ...way to go ORIGINS!!!

Our STYLE 101: experience was amazing, as we witnessed the celebs saunter down the 'green carpet,' and were later swooned by the musical performances of Ryan Star, Academy-Award nominated Jon McLaughlin, and Grammy-Award winner Macy Gray; Gray, the headliner for the concert (along with her band), wore head-to-toe organic clothing to celebrate the event.

Moreover, each performer planted a tree to further promote the cause of Earth Month; Origins has aided reforestation projects globally, having planted 24,000 trees to date.
Here's an 'exclusive' look at what took place at the concert... Enjoy!!!
