Yes, you read that right. Cargo Cosmetics has a line of lipsticks called PlantLove that really give back to the Earth -- you can plant the packaging and grow flowers!

The company first launched this line in 2007 and I, Mrs. Not Green Thumb, grew flowers! So if I could do it, anyone can.

This year, Cargo has five new colors designed by celebrity moms inspired by their children.


Angie Harmon designed Faith and Grace (the middle names of two of her daughters); Kim Raver designed Cherry Bliss (she has two sons so perhaps her favorite flavor?); and Denise Richards crafted Lola and Sam (the names of her daughters).

Cargo's PlantLove Botanical Lipstick's tube is made out of corn and the packaging carton is flower paper with flower seeds inside. The lipstick is made out of jojoba, shea butter, and meadowfoam seed oil, and contains no petroleum or mineral oils. Plus, two dollars from every purchase goes to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Get this environmentally-friendly lipstick for $20 from Sephora.
