DIY Shampoo and Conditioner Bars with Wenatchee River Institute and The Bubblery’s Shawna Lassen
Date: Jan. 16, 6-7:30pm
Leavenworth– When looking for ways to reduce plastic waste and shrink your carbon footprint, making your own shampoo and conditioner bars is one more step toward that goal. On Thur., Jan. 16, 6-7:30pm, Wenatchee River Institute (WRI) and The Bubblery, a soap company in Leavenworth, will offer a class on making your own bars without of the use of plastic containers and harsh chemicals!
The Bubblery’s owner Shawna Lassen, will teach you how to make shampoo and conditioner bars by formulating a palm and sulfite free vegan base designed to benefit your particular hair type. Various essential oils and herbs will be used such as charcoal, coconut oil, rosemary, orange and lemon peel.
“My initial motivation to make these bars was simply to cut down on waste and have a more natural haircare option. I also really like DIY projects like this because it educates people on how to create simple items used daily that will have a lower environmental impact and are geared toward personal needs,” said Lassen.
Take the step away from commercial shampoos and conditioners often made with harsh ingredients (including lye!) and dispensed in plastic containers not easily recycled. Participants will leave with their own personalized shampoo and conditioner bars. Class cost is $38 for WRI-members and $45 for non-members, with a limit of 15 participants. All supplies provided and please wear clothing you will not mind getting a little oily or soapy. Class location: WRI’s Red Barn, 347 Division St, Leavenworth.
