Valentine’s Day is a time to spread love so why not give gifts that help our planet? Singer, actress and filmmaker Tamela D’Amico shares ten of her favorite Eco Glam items that are luxurious on any day of the year!
ROSES EVER AFTER
These are long lasting, beautifully preserved roses (ethically sourced) that last a YEAR, with the scent lasting a few months. The company ships worldwide.
FAIR Cacao Liqueur is made with organic and fair trade certified cocoa nibs from Peru, which are infused into a vodka base to create a rich flavor.

PIXIE AND TRIXIE
You will fall in love with Pixie and Trixie’s vegan purses and Valentine’s Day jewelry and couture! The London-based company that was started by two women, also donates 5% of their proceeds to help animals in need.
These are clean, green, essential oil-based beauty products (made without toxic chemicals, dyes, and animal testing) that WORK! They are firm believers that, “If you can’t eat it, then don’t put it on your skin.” Tamela specifically likes the Organic Rose Phyto3 Facial Oil which is made with rose and acai stem cells.
