Event Recap: The Garnier Greener Tour Took Chicago By Storm

This past weekend, I hosted the Garnier Greener Tour when it came to Chicago! The purpose of the Garnier Greener Tour was to let consumers know about their partnership with TerraCycle; to raise awareness about the recyclability of cosmetic packaging, encourage people to think differently about waste, and teach simple ways to have a positive impact on the environment. The Garnier Bus was in front of Walmart early Sunday morning as we prepared to spread the word about the recyclability of biodegradable beauty packaging and products!

Having a little fun before people arrive! This bus was major, I would live in it…lol

Who told the good folks over at Garnier, that the way to my heart was through Sprinkle Cupcakes…I will forever be a fan of Garnier for this, my waistline, ehhh…not so much!

Garnier showing of the good stuff!

The flags are waving, we are ready!!

Everything was in place, now it was time to let the good times roll…

The styling station is set up! Check out my readers getting their hair styled!

How cute are they… Love it!

The game station is up and ready to go! Things got serious when people tried to get the ball in the hole!

Look at Mary following instructions and recycling her old beauty products!

The Garnier girls was working hard for the money!! hahaha!

Check out all the Garnier awesomeness going on inside the bus!

 Several groups got a chance to go on the bus a learn about and try all of Garnier’s products, I must admit I didn’t know they made so many awesome products myself! I can’t wait to try them out and do a review!

If you didn’t know, now you know!

All of my guests went home with lovely gift bags! They were all gone by the end of the night and I can see why!

Look what one of my readers posted on Swa-Rai’s Facebook Page!

Now that’s a goodie bag!!

The day was almost over but not before I filmed a segment for the people at Garnier…

And of course me the hostess with the mostess… Ok, that was pretty lame!

Thanks to the good folks over at Garnier and One2One Network for the opportunity! I had a great time and so did my readers!

I’m missing quite a few pics of a lot of my guests, I’m hoping the other photographer has them, when I get them I will post!
