Zero Waste Living Workshop Series: Simplifying Skincare with Joanna Runciman

Take control over what you are putting on and in your body, by handpicking natural ingredients to create zero waste beauty products you love. Leave this workshop with the products you’ve created from scratch, the knowledge to make more and an understanding of what ingredients to avoid in shelf-stocked toiletries moving forward.

All ingredients will be provided to make your own peppermint tooth-powder, gentle exfoliating face scrub and a multi-purpose herb-infused body balm that is great for dry nails, hands, lips and hair ends. If available to you and to make this workshop a truly zero waste experience, please bring three upcycled, glass jars to take your products away in.

To register for this FREE event, please e-mail the Whistler Public Library on or after November 1st at

Join us at one or all four of our Zero Waste Living Workshops! This series of workshops aims to showcase some of the many ways in which we can reduce the amount of waste we create in our everyday lives, while also finding unique ways to re-imagine our ‘waste’ as a valuable resource instead of trash. The Zero Waste Living Workshop Series was made possible thanks to funding from the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Community Enrichment Program and our venue sponsor the Whistler Public Library.
