Recycling Beauty Waste


While watching Breakfast Television on CityTv one morning they featured a special program for recycling beauty waste. Garnier has partnered with TerraCycle to make a cleaner and greener world, I think we should all do our part in keeping our planet clean and I encourage you to check out this beauty brigade. In the past I would toss my old empty or old half used items in the trash, now I have learnt that a lot of the products I was tossing can actually be recycled. I encourage you to please join me in this awesome cause and to share with your other friends, wives, and daughters.

With TerraCycle, all you have to do is collect or start collecting all of your beauty waste in a box. The following types of waste can be collected through the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade: lipstick cases, mascara tubes, eye shadow cases, shampoo bottles, conditioner bottles, bronzer cases, foundation packaging, body wash containers, soap tubes, soap dispensers, lotion dispensers, shaving foam tubes, powder cases, lotion bottles, chapstick tubes, lotion tubes, face soap dispensers, face soap tubes, face lotion bottles, face lotion jars, nail polish bottles, nail polish remover bottles, eyeliner cases, eyeliner pencils, eyeshadow tubes, concealer tubes, concealer sticks, lip liner pencils, hand lotion tubes, hair gel tubes, hair paste jars..etc. Once you’ve collected all your old beauty products go to http://www.terracycle.ca/en-CA/ and sign up. This will enable you to print off a ups label, and send the recyclables free of charge to the facility. Where they take old products and give them a new life. Once you’ve received your free label, all you need to do is call 1-800-PICK-UPS to set up your pick up. Super simple and puts us all one step closer to doing the right thing for our planet.
You can also raise money for your favourite charity! For every product that is sent in they use a points system to track and then the points get converted to $$$ where you can choose the charity, school or charitable gift.  
This is another way we can make a difference, I encourage you to check out TerraCycle for more recycling tips and information. If we all do our part, we can make this world a better cleaner place. Please join me in taking part in this awesome program.
Thanks for reading!
