Green Tip Tuesday - HAB

 Good afternoon.... this week I got some samples in the mail from Garnier Fuctis. I don't use this kinda of shampoo but then I kept on reading about their new initiative, "Pure Clean." They have joined up with TerraCycle, which I support (turn trash into new things) and thought I'd let ya'll know and see what you thought?

Would you pay more money for an item that will be recycled and turned into a new product (sold again)? Me? I really wouldn't, but I thought about it and I have bought "Green Toys." Which are also made of recycled items. And there are some pretty good coupons for these products and I can get them pretty cheap.... You decide for yourself.

Here's some more info on the project.... This new line of shampoo (Pure Clean) is made of 94% biodegradable (Conditioner is 92% biodegradable). This is important because it helps keep the down water cleaner. And they claim that the remaining ingredients are "certified non-ecotoxic." This HAB (oh, HAB means Health & Beauty!) briggade started on April 11th, with a big kick-off in Time Square. Don't know where I was because I didn't hear about it.

To Join the brigade or learn more info CLICK HERE.

From the TerraCycle website:

Each year millions of personal care product and beauty product packages are needlessly discarded and end up in landfills. TerraCycle is proud to partner with Garnier® to create a second life for these empty containers.
Every time you finish your personal care or beauty product we want you to save the packaging and send it in. We will upcycle the material into fun and innovative products. For each approved item received, your Collection Location will be awarded two TerraCycle points which can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or for a payment of $0.02 to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Please click here to learn more about the TerraCycle Points Program!

You can either join this brigade or just keep on recycling like normal. I usually take my empty HAB bottles to the mall and leave them at the Dillards store... Oh geez, I forgot the name of the company. But it's one of the "natural" make-up counters in the mall. They have a bin, everytime I go it's almost always EMPTY! But when I leave it's like half full, lol.
