As well as signing books, she will be collecting plastic waste from beauty products teamed up with Terracycle. They will accept lipstick cases, mascara tubes, eye shadow cases, shampoo bottles, conditioner bottles, bronzer cases, foundation packaging, body wash containers, soap tubes, soap dispensers, lotion dispensers, saving foam tubes, powder cases, lotion bottles, chapstick tubes, lotion tubes, face soap dispensers, face soap tubes, face lotion bottles, face lotion jars, nail polish bottles, nail polish remover bottles, eyeliner cases, eyeliner pencils, eyeshadow tubes, concealer tubes, concealer sticks, lipliner pencils, hand lotion tubes, hair gel tubes, hair paste jars.

When asked if she was going to have a pile of garbage behind her book signing table, Madeleine responded, "Yes! No! Well I guess technically it’s garbage but it’ll be clean garbage! Garbage that we are stopping from going into the garbage so that it’s actually not garbage anymore! We are liberating the garbage! Rescuing it, if you will!”
