World Oceans Day Creme de la Mer
If you're looking for a way to support World Oceans Day, celebrated annually on 8 June, this is a stylish option. La Mer has released a limited edition 100ml World Oceans Day Creme de la Mer which will be available throughout May and June 2012. This gorgeous cream that comes in a specially designed, ocean-inspired jar forms part of La Mer's World Oceans Day Campaign; they've partnered with the world's biggest ocean advocacy organisation, Oceana, for the past seven years to make a significant contribution to conserving our oceans. To highlight this ongoing collaboration, this year, a $200 000 donation will be made towards Oceana's Habitat Protection Programme. The new cream was created to honour La Mer founder Dr Max Huber's love for the sea, and its ability to regenerate and heal the skin. It is hoped that the campaign will encourage awareness around the necessity to preserve the oceans, and also its fragility and importance as a restorative resource to us all. World Oceans Day was made official by the United Nations in 2009 and recognises the importance of protecting the ocean and its habitats. To date, Oceana has already made a big contribution by reducing over-fishing and nurturing several 'threatened marine habitats with its science-based policies'. The World Oceans Day Creme de la Mer is available nationwide at selected Edgars and Stuttafords stores for R3 200. For more information visit cremedelamer.com/wod.
