Think about all of the lipstick, blush, foundation and mascara containers that you have thrown away over the years. Luckily there are a few cosmetic companies that are offering recycling programs and also give you an added incentive for doing so!
Kiehl’s: Through their Recycle and Be Rewarded program, take your empty Kiehl’s containers to your any free standing Kiehl’s store. They will give you a card to track your recycled containers at the store. After three containers you get Lip Balm #1, after 5 you get an item from Kiehl’s Travel Collection, and after 10 you can choose almost any product valued $25 or less!
Origins: With the Return to Origins Recycling Program, return ANY cosmetic company’s containers to Origins free standing stores or department counters (except for those in Nordstrom stores or located in Puerto Rico or Canada). Your used packaging can score you free samples of Origins’ fabulous products.
