Because it’s better than just throwing them in the trash bin. Go green!
Whether it’s an empty shampoo bottle, dried out mascara, or a used-up moisturiser, recycling them is always a great idea! Rather than recycling or upcycling them at home (which is good too), we’ve rounded up a few eco-conscious brands that would love to take in your empty containers for a good cause; and at the same time, reward you for it!
Gifting you with any lipstick of your choice (except the Viva Glam Lipsticks) when you bring back six empty primary packaging (Note: NOT paper boxes or sample sachets, etc), M.A.C makes recycling super exciting and rewarding! Now, what lipstick colour should we pick next?
