In this project, we aim to educate Georgia Tech students on the dangers that the Cosmetic Industry incurs on public health and the environment. We focus on researching harmful ingredients in popular products and hard to recycle cosmetic products and we determine how people can look for safer and more sustainable products. We organize events to promote proper recycling for cosmetic products and to bring in owners of sustainable cosmetic companies in Atlanta to talk to students about their processes. We are also in the process of creating a database of harmful ingredients to make it easier for students to know which products they should avoid.
