A COMMUNITY recycling group in Argyll and Bute is bringing its ‘sustainable beauty’ sessions back to the Helensburgh and Lomond area next month.

ReMake Argyll will hold a ‘ReMake Self Care’ session showing how to make zero waste, low cost beauty products in your own home, using everyday, sustainable and foraged ingredients, at the Rhu and Shandon Community Centre on Thursday, August 15.

It follows a similar session held at the Jean’s Bothy community mental health hub in Helensburgh last month.

All you need to bring is an empty, clean spice jar, a small spray bottle, and a small jar to fill.

A spokesperson for ReMake Argyll, part of the GRAB Trust (Group for Recycling in Argyll and Bute), which is running the session, said: “Working in partnership with a local herbalist we have developed a workshop where we will learn how to make healthy alternatives to everyday beauty products, which supermarket oils are great for our skin, what items to save from the compost or store cupboard to use on ourselves in stead, and how to tailor our products to suit our individual needs.

“With demonstrations, testers and opportunities to make some products to take home, this workshop is designed to get you to rethink personal self care, and come up with a zero waste beauty plan that is good for the planet as well as your wallet."

The session, which runs from 11.30am until 1.30pm, is free but spaces are limited so booking in advance is strongly advised. Find out more and book a place via the ‘ReMake Argyll’ page on Facebook.
