Are you just throwing away those used mascara wands? Did you know that there is a wildlife refuge that could actually use them? It's called "Wands For Wildlife" and it's a part of the Appalachian Mountain Wildlife Refuge. Their next wand drive is coming up in October.  They have had such a huge outpouring of support for their wand drives, that they now only take them twice a year. October, like I mentioned, and February.

They actually use the wands to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of wild animals. They work great because the bristles are close together. I think the wands really bring a light on the cause, so they are also asking for your financial donations. They save all the babies they can out in the wild, using these funds.
