The Green Edit Awards 2023


Anna Mitsios
Edible Beauty Australia

Cathy you have done it once again, what an incredible event! 

Since the launch of Edible Beauty in 2014 I have attended many events and expos but must say that The Green Edit has been my favourite event so far! Not only was the event a fantastic forum to connect with both new and existing Edible Beauty customers, it also provided me with a fantastic forum to meet and network with potential buyers and press. 


I obtained at least three new stockists at the event and spoke to numerous engaged press and influencers. Receiving an award for my recently launched sunscreen was a fantastic way to improve my authority in the "clean and green" beauty space. I also had an incredibly fun time engaging with other brands and founders which does not occur very frequently in our current environment.


I am so thankful to Cathy for creating such a wonderful forum for Green Beauty brands. I am very much looking forward to attending the next event!


Cathy Tolpigin

Founder & Curator

I am an organic makeup artist, founder and curator of The Green Edit, an innovative digital platform and event series that promotes the best in clean beauty and wellness brands. 


I am passionate about working with ethical brands to create and implement bespoke events and promotional opportunities that facilitate authentic and beneficial connections with key media, influencers, retailers and mindful consumers. 


I utilise my strategic and creative skills to help brands increase brand awareness, distribution and market share, whilst creating bespoke content and advertising campaigns to share unique brand stories and product ranges.

Over the years I have tried and tested hundreds of beauty products. When it comes to my personal beauty routine, I seek the whole package: truly natural products created with botanical and organic ingredients. They must be high performance, innovative, beautifully packaged and luxurious, all without compromising on the important aspects of sustainability, health and ethics. 


My views are informed by my career, as well as countless conversations with beauty formulators, developers and holistic health professionals. 


I truly believe that to have impact, brand founders should have a loud voice, to share their unique story and insights into their brand values and product offering. This is why I created The Green Edit.

Our consumer audience  

The Green Edit audience is a modern, educated woman with a vested interest in health, wellness and responsible luxury. While she’s always loved beauty and wellness, her focus has shifted in recent years to explore cleaner and more sustainable alternatives. She cares deeply about the products she uses, the ingredients in each formulation and the ethics that contextualise a brand.


She’s become mindful of sustainability, and the potential environmental impact of her beauty routine, too. She has an emotional connection to her beauty routine and is just as interested in who is behind the products she uses, as much as what’s in them. She also enjoys spending time on her skin and practicing self-care despite her busy, multi-faceted life. 

Our community is niche and deep, these women attend our in person events, visit The Green Edit digital media site to read about and shop our product recommendations, they listen to The Green Edit Podcast, vote for their favourite beauty and wellness products in The Best Of The Green Edit awards, support our charity initiatives and have purchased our curated green beauty boxes.
