Let's face it, most of us tend to overstock on makeup product that we don't really need, but what happens once it reaches past its expiry date? Below are a few suggestions on how you can properly dispose makeup without upsetting the eco-system:
RETURN IT: Some beauty brands are eager to give a hand to those with the urge to purge. One example is MAC's famous Back 2 MAC program, which encourages recycling at the source. They'll gladly take the goods off your hands and in return, you get a free lipstick of your choice!
RECYCLE IT: Most beauty products and packaging are recyclable, just keep an eye out the arrow sign on the box. Choose glass- or paper-based products, which are easier to reuse and recycle. Always remember to wash the the bottles thoroughly before tossing them in the recycling bin.
REUSE IT: We've all bought beauty products based on their pretty packaging, so why not give those empty containers a second life with reuse. Ideas include turning empty powder compacts into credit card or change holders, or using uniquely-shaped foundation jars as single-stem vases atop your workspace.
