Lindsay Lohan And Cargo Lipstick Help St. Jude's

Lindsay Lohan has often been slammed in the press for her wild-child ways and party girl behavior. These days, the young actress has certainly been trying to stay on the right track, and for that, we applaud her.

And we found out some other great news about Lindsay Lohan, and thought we'd share an item about her kind heart.

For all the makeup and packaging that go together, have you ever really wondered if any of it is going 'green?' Are the huge cosmetics companies concerned about keeping our earth clean and lean? And what about charities that could benefit from a little money going their way?

Lindsay Lohan and Cargo Cosmetics are trying to make a difference.

Lindsay, along with other celebrities like Courtney Cox, Sarah Chalke, Evangeline Lily, Mariska Hargitay, and Maria Menounos, have teamed up with Cargo and designed 6 of the 12 lipstick shades called, Cargo PlantLove Botanical Lipstick ($20 a tube,

The beauty of this entire project is two-fold:

First, it's an earth-friendly venture. Get this.....The lipstick case is made out of corn. Yes, corn! And it is biodegradable. And the box is also made out of corn and is biodegradable. This box is embedded with wildflower seeds; just moisten and plant.

How cute is that? You can plant the seeds next spring, and watch nature unfold in all its glory.

Secondly, $2 from the sale of each lipstick, goes to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. We love that concept---of giving back!

The Cargo PlantLove lipsticks are formulated with a truly wonderful moisturizing base:

"Innovative botanical formula infused with Orchid Complex™ and Meadowfoam Seed Oil as well as Jojoba and Shea Butter ~ the incredibly smooth formula is environmentally friendly, containing no mineral oils or petroleums."

We have pictured above, Lindsay Lohan's Cargo PlantLove Botanical Lipstick in Sheer Pink Cream. A soft, universally-pretty-on-anyone pink.

As the good people at Cargo PlantLove stated:

"PlantLove™: The seeds we sow today affect future generations so we are investing in the earth and our children for the future of the planet!"
