There’s a buzz this month as J.Crew launches its limited edition partnership with London-based illustrator, Marcel George, to produce the artist’s hand-painted watercolour tees and pocket squares, with 50 percent of sales going towards conservation charity, Buglife. Meanwhile, Burt’s Bees introduces their new lipstick in 14 shades just in time for a Mother’s Day partnership with Pink Tartan to benefit Wildlife Preservation Canada. The sale of Pink Tartan’s new tee comes with two lipsticks and the planting of 10,000 wildflowers to help support sustainability.
