THE WHAT? Ulta Beauty has been ordered to pay US$750,000 to settle a civil suit alleging that the retailer failed to dispose of flammable and toxic materials properly across the greater Bay Area, according to a report published by KSRO.
THE DETAILS As part of the settlement, the US beauty retailer must implement a compliance program to ensure proper disposal of hazardous waste.
THE WHY? Contra Costa, County District Attorney Diana Becton told Patch, “Companies must be held responsible for business practices that pose harm to the environment. Ulta was cooperative throughout the investigation and in correcting the issues.”
