Great blog! I’m Cinnamon Henke, owner of (a beauty blog) and I noticed a lack of networks just for us “Green/ Natural/ or Organic” beauty blogers. So I created The Green Beauty Bloggers Network. It’s a place for us Green / Natural / Organic / Eco beauty bloggers to unite and network with each other. It’s still being worked on but I’d love for you to join and help spread the word.
