Share Your Beauty Partners with LeSportsac – Now you can drop off your beauty products in NYC!

beauty products donated to share your beauty

As some of you know I’ve been working on creating a more sustainable beauty industry and have been partnering with brands, editors and bloggers since February to get their un-used/unopened beauty products donated to homeless and battered women’s shelters.

Beauty bloggers/editors get so many products they can’t give it away fast enough. And did you know that when brands discontinue a product or change the packaging they usually destroy any leftover products in their warehouse? Think of all those people in need that they could go to! And up until now there wasn’t a viable solution which I’m so happy to be on the forefront of creating!

A few months back I partnered with the non-profit organization, Family-to-Family to develop a Beauty donation program called “Share Your Beauty“, which allows anyone to donate any unopened beauty products to those in need.

Now in only our 4th month in existence, I’m so excited to announce not only have we donated over 12,000 products and as of today we’re officially partnering with LeSportsac!!!! Anyone in NYC is welcome to drop off to the LeSportsac corporate office  located in Times Square where we will be doing monthly donations to various shelters in the tristate area.

We’re accepting unopened beauty products (hair, skincare, body products, makeup, nail polish and fragrance) — please do not include anything too complicated like self tanners or fake eyelashes (use your judgement).

Prior to drop off or messengering products, please email us at [email protected] so we can have your name added to the security list and notify LeSportsac how much bags/boxes or products they can expect. Please bring a valid ID when dropping off. Unless you prefer to go through the messengering center which does not require registration.

Last night was probably one of the most exceptional events I’ve ever had the please of putting on. For new years my #1 resolution was to give back and be apart of a more sustainable industry and last night it all came full circle. In February, I received an email from the non-profit, Family-to-Family about wanted to drop off beauty products to homeless shelters for Valentine’s Day. Instead of doing a post about it, I offered to run a drive out of NYC and work with local beauty bloggers and brands to do a collection.
