Garnier Encourage Recycling Activism and Green Behavior
Did you know that beauty waste (all those pretty personal care and beauty packaging on your makeup table) account for one third of all landfill waste? Wow, we had no idea. In an effort to curb that, Garnier, along with The Trust for Public Land, the City of Newarks Office of Sustainability, and its Department of Neighborhood Services, recently announced the installation of 54 community recycling containers at three local Newark parks.
The containers were created from beauty packaging waste collected through Garnier USAs Personal Care and Beauty Brigade recycling partnership with TerraCycle, a fast growing company that specializes in eliminating non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste. The goal of the program is to allow consumers to collect and send in non-recyclable waste to be turned into innovative new products. If you are not sure if a product is recyclable, check out the bottom of the packaging and match the recycle symbol with this chart.
"Caring for the environment is important to us at Garnier," said Lauren Consiglio, Garniers Assistant Vice President of Marketing. "Making Newark more beautiful by encouraging recycling activism and greener behavior is just one of the ways we can help make a difference."
