TAKE ACTION! DIY Zero Waste Living: Body Products

March 10, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm



Commercial personal care products often come in nonrecyclable packaging and contain chemicals and preservatives that can negatively impact the planet and your health. As part of Ijams Take Action!, health educator Kayla Byerly Simon will teach participants how to create their own body products using common household items that are better for you and create less waste as part of our Zero Waste series.

Join us on March 10 at 3:00 to get hands on and create your own homemade body scrub and deodorant. Cost for the hands on workshop is $10 per person. All ingredients will be provided as part of this event. We will be using essential oils as part of this workshop- if you have particular scents that you prefer in your products, please feel free to bring them with you. Also, if you have reusable glass containers that you prefer to take your products home in, you can bring your own but we will have containers for you as part of the event.
