Garnier is proud to announce that they have teamed up with TerraCycle® to create the very first Personal Care and Beauty Brigade®. People and individuals will organize a brigade to collect personal care and beauty-related waste, to be recycled and repurposed into other products such as fences, coolers, and tote bags.
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 they want you to save the packaging and send it in. They will recycle the waste material into fun and innovative products. For each approved package received, your Collection Location will be awarded two TerraCycle points, which can be redeemed for a variety of charity gifts or for a payment of $0.02 to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.
Participation in the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade is simple and it’s completely FREE – all costs and shipping are covered by Garnier®. Sign–up online today and the rest is easy:
♦ Once you sign–up to participate in the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade you can download prepaid postage labels and collection materials from TerraCycle.
♦ Collect enough packaging to fill a collection bag.
♦ Affix the pre–paid postage label and drop it off at any UPS location.

QUICK FREEBIE TIP:
All freebies are posted without prejudice. I have no political/religious/personal agenda to promote here, and I may not even agree with the message the freebie is promoting. But freebie censorship is not what this site is about. If you don't agree with the message a freebie is promoting, just pass on the freebie. The next one I find might be one you do believe in, and someone else might disagree.
