Anyone who has had a make-up lesson at my studio knows about the Naughty Basket. It’s the dark place where used, inappropriate, or just plain unloved make-up goes. The fact that I fill it so quickly says a lot about how successful women are at purchasing products that work for them, but that’s another blog post.
When the Naughty Basket is full, the contents get packaged up and sent off to Terracycle®, a recycling company that facilitates, among many other waste collection programs, a Personal Care and Beauty Brigade® in partnership with cosmetic giant Garnier®.
In an ongoing effort to keep all of this packaging and chemical waste from reaching a landfill or an ocean, I’m hosting the first annual “Give Up Your Trash, Get Some Lash” event on Friday, November 14th. We’ll be collecting your beauty trash from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at my studio, which is located at 892 County Line Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010. Parking in back and on streets surrounding the studio.
Take this opportunity to clean up and clean out your drawers and cabinets for the good. Drop off your used, empty or unwanted make-up and cosmetic containers, and as our thanks, we’ll put false lashes on you that you can rock on your Friday night out (or in). We will accept the following items:
- Cosmetics packaging such as cases, bottles and tubes from lipstick, gloss, mascara tubes, eye shadow, bronzer, foundation, powder cases, eyeliner as well as eye and lip pencils.
- Hair care packaging such as bottles/jars and caps from shampoo, conditioner and styling products
- Skin care packaging such as tubes, bottles and jars from face and body soaps and lotions
