L.A.’s locavores will get a special beauty treat in May. A self-described “eco-chic cabana” called ELLE Eco-Style Station will launch at the Brentwood Farmers’ Market and Pacific Palisades Farmers’ Market over four weekends, offering free beauty treatments and product samples.
When and where:
>> Sundays, May 3 and May 10, 9 am - 2:30 pm at Brentwood Farmers’ Market, 741 South Gretna Green Way, Los Angeles.
>> Sundays, May 17 and May 24, 8 am - 1 pm, Pacific Palisades Farmers’ Market, 1037 Swarthmore Ave., Los Angeles.
Visitors will get on-the-go pedicures using “all-natural” nail polish (“all-natural” isn't defined) and hand massages (only at the Pacific Palisades Farmers’ Market). According to Elle, the cabanas will highlight eco-fashions and “the brands that use natural, sustainable and organic materials.” Those brands would be Elle’s sponsors — Juice Beauty, Birkenstock, Soy Joy and Burt’s Bees.
The stations are timed to celebrate ELLE’s annual May Green Issue — which, according to Elle, is also the magazine’s first ever Blue issue. I take that to mean water-related environmental issues will be given a nod in the ‘zine.
