Trendy trash is a group of 6th class girls from Bridgetown NS. We entered the SEAI One Good Idea competition. We got through to the next round and are the in the top 20 in the country. We are researching dangerous chemicals in beauty products and making organic home remedies, that are better for your skin. We are also focussing on recycling and using less packaging for skincare products.
So far we have:

On Tuesday the 28th of February Ellie, Sabrina, Roisin, Lucy, and Trish went to Killaloe to interview the manager of Queally’s Supervalu, the owner of An Siopa Beag, health food shop and the owner of Green Cross Pharmacy. They collected lots of information on what skincare products sold best and why and whether people look at labels and think about the ingredients in their products. The manager of Supervalu also talked to the girls about where they put products on shelves, which ones they buy and which ones go on sale.
