Below is an email from Terracycle's PR person, Stacey Cusak, about an opportunity to support such an effort from Garnier and Terracycle. I have not been able to confirm or deny whether Stacey is actually related to one of my favorite actors John Cusak.
This week, Garnier's Cleaner Greener Tour will be parked at Walmart just off Route 62/East Main Street in Fayetteville from Wed-Thur. Walmart shoppers can bring any and all hair care, skin care and cosmetic packaging to the tour vehicle to be recycled by TerraCycle and score some free samples of Pure Clean. Garnier is kicking off a packaging collection and recycling program with TerraCycle called the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade and announcing Pure Clean, a new biodegradable hair care line.
After these tour stops, Arkansas residents can join the Brigade at TerraCycle.net to send in their personal care packaging from home. The program is free to join and all shipping costs are paid. Even better? TerraCycle pays $.02 for each unit of waste collected to the charity of the collector's choice.

I hope you'll consider sharing news of TerraCycle and Garnier's recycling efforts with your readers. This way, they can bring their empty or old personal care packaging to the store to be recycled while out shopping this week.
Please let me know your thoughts when you can.
