PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics Launches Eternal Equity Gloss

As BeansTalk get a bit older our social conscience seems to rule our little every day decisions more and more. Having kids really makes this voice a little louder, right girls? We especially appreciate the opportunity to look out for our “sisters” who bear heavy burdens in other parts of the world.

BeansTalk has just learned that PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics recently launched their fifth specialty lip gloss called Eternal Equity Gloss. PeaceKeeper will donate $1.00 from the sale of each Eternal Equity Gloss to the Poverty Reduction Initiative, a program lead by former Senator Mechai of Thailand’s National Assembly and other pro-active micro-finance projects to help fund an economic option for Thai women who live on less than a dollar a day.

What does eternal equity look like? Eternal Equity means that women everywhere have equal access to food, education and freedom from oppression. Inspired by this idea, PeaceKeeper’s Eternal Equity Gloss is a shade of pale rose pink with a hint of gold shimmer that is universally flattering. BeansTalk has already made this shade a purse favorite. We usually advise our readers to wear gloss over lipstick, but we feel this shade is pretty enough to be worn alone.

According to PeaceKeeper founder Jody Weiss, “We have a unique opportunity to use our buying power to help others who are less fortunate. By purchasing PeaceKeeper products, the consumer takes an active role in becoming part of the solution.”

Eternal Equity Gloss and other PeaceKeeper products can be purchased at Whole Foods stores, Marriott Spas, Earth Fare and other specialty stores nationwide. Suggested retail price for Eternal Equity Gloss is $16.50.

About the Poverty Reduction Initiative
With PeaceKeeper’s support, former Senator Mechai and the Poverty Reduction Initiative aim to assist Thai villages to strengthen communities, generate income and improve overall health care and education. For $365 a year or $1 a day, a woman will be trained in a sustainable trade and be fully funded to build her business. This will enable her to increase her income from a $1 a day to more sustainable levels where she will truly thrive and be able to contribute to her community. “Now that’s beautiful.”
