Did you know that the beauty sector generated over 142 billion units of packaging last year – most of which ended up in landfill or the ocean.
However, with this being said major corporations and brands are understanding the impact of their packing on our planet and reacting to ensure they provide recyclable solutions.
Give a second life to your skin-care routine and makeup to give them a longer lifespam and learn-to reuse. You’ll see sometimes, brands even reward you for it with presents and reductions!
Take a step further towards sustainability and learn about five brands bringing packaging to a minimum…
REFILL YOUR PRODUCTS WITH MAC
Start refilling the iconic black round eye shadows and blush.
MAC now sells you the colour in a metal pan that you can then put in the plastic packaging.
If you don’t want to change colours, you can also bring them back to the store. By giving them six plastic packaging to recycle, you’ll get a lipstick of your choice completely free!
ZERO WASTE RULES WITH BLEACH LONDON
Bleach London is completely done with plastic packaging.
If you want to buy their hair products it will be in a glass bottle, half or one-liter bottles of shampoos and conditioner.
When you finish them, and it takes a long time, you can go back to the shop and refill your bottle or give it back for recycling.
RE-USABLE PACKAGING BY LE LABO
Le Labo had been from day one using re-usable packaging and offer recycled glass bottles in recycled cardboard boxes without plastic.
You were already doing good for your skin by buying these products but now you have an even better reason and can help the planet at the same time.
When you’re needing an update, you get to refill your perfume bottle and get 20% off your next perfume!
