Get spring cleaning underway a bit early this year by going through your closet and doing a good deed. All this spring you can help a teen stay green and feel beautiful at the prom by donating last season’s party dresses and shoes to Project Green Prom.
Project Green Prom is a challenge by Teens Turning Green to high school students across the country to “green” their high school proms, all the way down to their own prom dress and beauty regimen.
Teens Turning Green focuses on the prom because there are so many simple changes you can make to update this traditional rite of passage for a more sustainable celebration. Beginning with greener alternatives in hair, makeup, skin and body care products and extending to include prom attire and accessories, party décor, transportation and flowers, the goal is to inspire teens to action that will sustain their health and that of the planet.
In the Bay Area, the Village at Corte Madera has donated a fabulous space at the mall for a temporary Project Green Prom Shop from April 24-May 31 . Teens Turning Green will be selling slightly used and vintage dresses and shoes and will have shelf displays of the many green beauty products that the organization promotes. New York and Dallas will also have Project Green Prom events in April.
Every weekend in May teens from around the Bay Area are invited to come to the store to get mini-treatments prior to their prom night including hair, nails, makeup and skincare treatments. All proceeds go to Teens Turning Green’s future projects.
