Learn to make your own Skin Cleansing Scrub and Toothpaste, with alternative ingredients to plastic microbeads. Ecology Center staffer Jeannie Pham will lead this workshop on making your own body care products, without the toxic microbeads found in many commercial products. We will also discuss current legislation to ban microbeads, and how you can get involved to help preserve the health of our oceans. See our recent blog post on this subject: ecologycenter.org/blog/tiny-but-toxic-microbeads-could-soon-be-banned-in-california/. We will also introduce plastic-free body products from the Ecology Center Store. Space is limited -- register online to reserve your space. This event is part of a series for Plastic-Free July.
