Kiehl's Since 1851 is proud to partner with Sundance Channel to bring special events to our local communities in a combined effort to inspire people to rethink waste in their everyday lives. With a longstanding, shared dedication to social responsibility and helping others, Kiehl's and Sundance Channel will host exclusive screenings of ECO TRIP, the new eight-part original series on the Sundance Channel featuring eco adventurer David de Rothschild, to spread the word about the environmental impact each of us has on a daily basis.

ECO TRIP explores the origins of common everyday products, investigating iconic items from cotton t-shirts and paper napkins to salmon and cell phones, and follows their life cycle from production to disposal, revealing the environmental, social and health effects along the way.

Each screening will be moderated by a member of the local community who has made great strides to advance the message of reduce, reuse and recycle.

Check out the upcoming Screenings in Seattle and New York:

Kiehl's New York, 109 Third Ave - May 19, 7-8PM with Scott Hahn, Co-Founder, Loomstate

Kiehl's Seattle, 4500 25th Ave NE - June 2, 6-7PM with Rachel Smith, Coordinator for Mayor Greg Nickels' Climate Action NOW

Loomstate: Launched in New York City in 2004 by designer Rogan Gregory and Scott Hahn, Loomstate was founded as a casual brand dedicated to creating demand for certified organic cotton using socially and environmentally responsible methods of production.

Climate Action NOW: Rachel is the coordinator for Seattle Climate Action Now. Prior to joining the Mayor's staff, she worked in the environmental community as Field Director and later Development Director for Transportation Choices Coalition, after turns at the Northwest Environmental Education Council and WashPIRG.
