Casket Fairprice Seeks Unused Makeup Donations To Reduce Product Wastage

Buying makeup, even when you have more than enough, is a guilty pleasure for beauty junkies. But oftentimes, countless products may end up becoming unused.

If you aren’t sure what to do with all the makeup products you rarely or barely use anymore, an unlikely group in Singapore has just the place for them.

From now till 17 Jan 2023, homegrown funeral services provider, Casket Fairprice, is holding a donation drive for unused makeup products.

Embalmers will inspect all items to ensure they are in proper and good condition to be used on the departed.

Makeup crucial in the embalming process

While bidding farewell to loved ones who have passed on is part and parcel of life, the amount of effort funeral homes put into giving the departed a dignified send-off often goes unmentioned.

After all, funerals are not just a celebration of the lives of those who have passed but also a chance for friends and family to say goodbye.

This is where makeup plays a vital role in ensuring the recently passed look as close to how they did before passing.

Casket Fairprice shared that makeup is essential in covering up the natural effects of decomposition on the body.

This is especially so in the case of unnatural deaths to help alleviate traumatic feelings and give every person a respectful send-off.

Embalmers constantly race against time, giving the departed as lifelike and natural an appearance as they can throughout funeral wakes.

Efforts towards sustainability

Casket Fairprice’s ‘Dignity for the Departed’ campaign is a step towards sustainability. It is a part of their green efforts to reduce product wastage.

In tandem with a broader sustainability programme, they hope the initiative will become an ongoing one where people can continue donating their makeup products.

Besides that, Casket Fairprice is also planning to launch an eco-friendly funeral package for customers.

They also aim to support charities promoting sustainability by committing towards planting a tree for every few funerals organised.
