LeaF Festival : Make your own Plastic Free Personal Products

July 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

- Free

About the Workshop

Commercial personal products promise us eternal youth. But what are the real costs of these beauty elixirs and their ingredients – often a cocktail of chemicals, packaged in plastic, which can be harmful to ourselves, our children and the planet. Donna Sowman and Alison Heeley will teach you how to easily create your own plastic-free personal products, such as toothpaste, deodorant and lip balm, using natural, simple ingredients at a fraction of the price! Brought to you by Waste Not Bellingen/ Centre for Ecological Learning.
