It is so fantastic to see that customers can have an impact. a while ago I suggested to Les Artisants Laos, who are making the popular and outstanding cosmetics here, to recycle the plastic bottles they use for sprays and liquid soap. Today they announced this:

T'Shop Lai Gallery is now collecting used Les Artisans Lao bottles from customers and recycling them for future use. They have also started to sell shampoo and shower gel by the litre. Customers can bring in any bottle and they will fill it up with their choice of product and fragrance.

Customers will be given a small gift or discount when they participate in the bottle recycle program!"

Les Artisans Lao was founded in 1995 as a small workshop specializing in using coconut shells and recycled materials to make handicraft products. Within a few years, Les Artisans Lao had built up a demand for its products and opened a workshop with a number of young Lao nationals, most disadvantaged, to assist with production. In 1997, Les Artisans Lao opened T’Shop Lai Gallery in Vientiane, Lao PDR to showcase and sell its original collection of handmade goods.

- Natural beauty and skin care line
- Authentic handicrafts (coconut, bamboo, recycled wood)
- Lao botanicals (Soapnuts, wildcraft honey, essential oils)
- Furniture, framing, and custom finishes

My favorite products are the liquid soap, mosquito repellent and after-bite-cream
