Increasing numbers of manufacturers are offering products with minimal, recycled, and/or sustainable packaging. Pangea Organics' soap wrappers, for instance, are embedded with seeds for eventual planting. Gisele Bündchen's new skincare line includes packaging made from wind energy and is printed with soy-based inks. Green packaging might not always look as luxe, but it makes for a far better reduction on our carbon footprints in the long run.

Are these changes to blame, or is it something else? More than a few factors are at play, but one thing's clear: this sad statistic puts a new spin on the phrase "ugly American."

It's the season for bloomin' cherries, as the National Cherry Festival in DC commences this Saturday, lasting until April 11. To celebrate the occasion, I've gathered together a few cherry-scented beauty goods (my favorite being the cherry-tobacco-scented Luctor et Emergo). Might I suggest you peruse my widget while listening to Cherry Blossom Girl by Air or Spoon's ultrapoppy You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb by Spoon?
