Origins helps you recycle cosmetics packaging

When the lipstick runs out and the mascara goes dry, what do you do with the plastic containers they come in? Chances are you throw them in the trash because they aren't easily recyclable.

Origins cosmetics now has a program that allows consumers to bring cosmetic containers of any brand to their stores to be recycled.

Starting March 29, 2009, bring your empty cosmetic tubes, bottles and jars, etc. - regardless of brand - to your nearest Origins retail store or department store counter nationwide.* All returned packaging will be sent back to a central location where products will be recycled or used for energy recovery.

In an industry first, Origins will accept packaging from any cosmetic company regardless of the manufacturer. We believe that the more we collect from consumers, the more we can keep cosmetic packaging out of landfills. And we hope this program will encourage other companies into following our example.

To thank you for joining us in our commitment to the environment, we’ll treat you to a FREE sample of your choice of one of Origins high-performance skincare products.

Yes, the left over cosmetic packaging was used to be a waste and thrown into the bin. But, with the application of latest technology they are being reused. There are a number of companies around the world that are providing packaging recycling services.
