Beautiful idea to make use of empty cosmetics
THREE Cockburn schools have registered for a competition to win a playground made of recycled beauty products.
The competition, which was launched this month by TerraCycle, with support from Garnier, aims to encourage schools to engage with recycling programs and divert more waste from landfill.
“The competition not only offers schools the chance to win a new playground, but it’s also a great way for schools to engage their students with recycling and the environment in general,” TerraCycle marketing manager Gemma Kaczerepa said.
“Kids who engage with our recycling programs understand the impact they can have on the environment and become hugely motivated to help recycle.”
By sending any brand of empty cosmetics, skin care and hair care packaging to TerraCycle to be recycled, registered preschools and primary schools can be in the running to win.
The competition will run until December 8.
