    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776

    OR

    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    Target has a car seat recycle drive at least once a year where they either recycle or donate car seats in usable condition. Bonus if you donate that give you a coupon for money off the purchase off new child gear (the coupon was 20% off during this years drive). There is a level of liability involved with reselling used car seats as it's nearly impossible to determine if they've been involved in a collision. Car seats also expire, there's an expiration date printed on the side, they're usually good for about 5 years. The dimensional stability of the plastic is affected from the extreme temperatures within a hot car. The safety regulations may change frequently making it more difficult to sell second hand. Donating is definitely better than chucking it in the landfill and it's certainly better than having nothing at all if you've limited financial means.

    I agree with you Mary. You don't know what people are going through and sometimes something is better than nothing at all. Sometimes you have no choice and have to rely on what you can get. People complain about not having money but they go out to eat twice a week and only buy organic foods. They don't understand if you only have $40 to feed your family for two weeks til you get paid again you can't eat organic and you can't go out to eat. LOL. That is why I have started my own garden so that we will always have some sort of food if that issue comes up again.

    Our Goodwill takes them and you can purchase them too. I also put them on freecycle and have gotten ones on freecycle too.
